I never miss my early flight when staying over the night before my flight. The hotel is located closer to the airport. Staff never miss waking you up early morning to prepare yourself and get ready for the flight.

The Garden Court is my favorite hotel for a brief stop-over in Johannesburg - regular transfers to the airport (every 30 minutes), close by (8 to 10 min) but far enough away so that you are not disturbed by air traffic noise, and the hotel has all you need: a nice Irish pub (and a buffet restaurant), very good breakfast,...

We stayed at the Garden Court O.R. Tambo International Hotel before and after a safari and found it an excellent place for weary travelers. The rooms are spacious, everything is very clean, and the prices are reasonable. A very good breakfast buffet was included in the price. In addition to a big buffet dinner each evening (which we didn't try),... More

The hotel is very close to the O.R Tambo International airport hotel with a regular free shuttle bus service. The rooms are basic, but there is everything you need. The beds are comfy and you'll get a good night sleep. We were supposed to be picked up at 6:00 am to start a tour, so ordered a breakfast box when... More

A reasonably priced but pretty basic option by the airport. It does everything you would expect but is not above average on any metric in my view. The food is all standard fare, with the pub option being distinctly average without anything actually being wrong.

This was exactly what we needed no frills but so close to the airport and here shuttle bus is excellent and runs every half hour. Breakfast was lovely too. Rooms are clean and tidy. For our over night stay this was good but not much luxury to the place. Didn't use the pool but looked nice from what we saw.
