In July 2014, me and my colleagues were travelling in a group, from my country to Sao Paulo, and we booked for a night as on our return journey we were in transit. Upon our arrival the rooms were not ready, dirty laundry, without clean towels. and when we requested we only received one. Just to mention at least me... More

This is a great hotel very close to the airport at Johannesburg. This was our first trip to South Africa, so we were a little nervous. The shuttle bus is easy to find and leaves every 15 minutes. The room was large with lots of room for our luggage - big comfy beds and great pillows. The bathroom in the... More

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel very near to the airport in Johannesburg. The staff was very welcoming and our room was great. A little surprise was that the shower is in the bedroom along with the sink. There is a curtain separating the shower from the beds and it was new and modern. It just surprised us. The... More

I can unfortunately not comment too much about this hotel, since I arrived relatively late at the hotel, and took off the next morning quite early. I do, however, have an opinion about this hotel, that I would like to share… and this is it: POSITIVE POINTS: First of all, this is a 3 star hotel, with a four star... More

Perfect for a good night's rest if you do not want the hassle of going out in to the city. Perhaps a little expensive for what it is and considering that there are no other facilities than your room and wifi. Any food or drink must be sourced from the terminal which isn't as simple as it sounds - quite... More

I had a 19-hours connection at JNB airport, so I decided to book a room at the 12-24 hours rate. Service at the reception desk was very good, room very clean, comfortable bed, TV and complimentary wifi. A room without window which is a little depressing, but maybe there are windows on the upper floor of the hotel. I found... More

Spent my layover time in the hotel a couple of times. Rooms were very clean, well maintained and well equipped. Missed a minibar. Staff was always very friendly. If you happen to get a room at the end of the corridor it's quite a long walk... Free WiFi only for a very short duration. Afterwards you have to pay.

We stayed there for a couple of hours due to long transit time. The room is nice with all amenities. Free internet, TV etc. However, there is no window but this is quite common for airport transit hotels. Unfortunately, my wife left her beauty bag in the room, which we realized only in the plane. We wrote an email to... More

During a flight from Heathrow to Lilongwe we had a stop in Johannesburg. This was an unplanned stop and we needed secure, comfortable within the airport complex. We were given a list of possible hotels including the Transit Hotel. This hotel is airside and very secure, a lift takes you from the hotel reception area to the departure area of... More
