I booked this thinking it was inside Joburg airport but it is not! There is another City Lodge hotel inside the airport! This one is a few minutes away by cab which cost 120 rand (about US $10.) They also have an hourly airport shuttle for 78 Rand. The hotel was fine - quiet room, friendly staff, good breakfast. Fine... More

We erred with the accommodation booking at another establishment and when we phoned, a little desperate, the call was received courteously and so was the reception. The room was tidy and the request for an off-menu breakfast was dealt with in no time. Your staff was noticeably pleasant and the awesome greeting of your guard at the gate when we... More

We spent one night at this Barbara Road City Lodge and were very impressed. Having said that, they don't offer any proper evening meals, just sandwiches and wraps, but you can get food sent in.They more than make up for this with the amazing breakfast, everything you can think of appears by magic overnight. Hot, cold, fruit, yoghurt, cereal, pastries,... More

5 minute's drive from the airport without traffic and there's plentiful free parking. Rooms are decent and clean as can be expected from this chain. I had a room facing away from the freeway and there was almost no noise at night with the window open. Breakfast is good and service fast and friendly. Not designed for long stays or... More

Great service, great food, great accommodation. Geared for businessmen more than families, especially those passing to and from Oliver Thambo Airport, there are shuttle services for ease of transport. I had a problem with my door key....it was literally sorted out in 5 minutes! Service at this hotel is paramount. What puts the cherry on the top for me is... More

As evidenced by many of the reviews of this hotel that incorrectly peg it for the actual City Lodge Hotel Tambo attached to the airport, this City Lodge on Barbara Road is a 10 min. ride (taxi or shuttle) from the airport.

My husband and I stayed here for one night whilst transferring from Mozambique to Kruger. Very convenient as one doesn't have to go outside. Quite a long walk, but well signed and we found people very helpful in pointing us in the right direction initially. Rooms beautifully clean. All usual facilities, comfortable bed.
