Had only one night at Jo'burg. The city lodge was perfect, very friendly and helpfull staff. The rooms are adequately furnished and spacious. We wanted to see the city, the reception arranged a perfect driver and car. Breakfast was very good. Can recommend this hotel for a similar one night stay! The only "negative" side: long distances from elevator to... More

Very convenient as its close to O.R Tambo. Its very busy and Noisy. Don't spend more than one night there. You won't be able to sleep or rest. It's however very safe and the staff do their best to make you feel welcome. Food is also very good and the rooms are quite clean. Next time i'll check into a... More

This is a great airport hotel and an excellent place to stay after a long flight. It feels very safe and is very welcoming. There is a pleasant outdoor area round a pool where you can relax with a drink (wine portions are huge, no standard drinks here). The food, including the buffet breakfasts, is very good and the rooms... More

City Lodge is conveniently located next to the airport and can be reached through a covered walkway. Checking in and out took some time, as it is very busy and the reception desk was not fully manned. The rooms are good and we did not experience noise from the airplanes or nearby motorways. The hotelbar is not very cosy and... More

An airport hotel should be all about convenience and maximising the amount of sleep. This place failed - it's not easy to reach with a baggage trolley, a long walk from the terminal via escalator or lift. The room window appeared to be single glazed and badly sealed, so we heard every take-off. I wouldn't stay there again.

This is the third time I have stayed in this hotel and I am still extremely impressed. We checked in at midnight and were felt very welcome even at that time of night. It is a pleasure to walk into a spotless hotel after sitting on aeroplanes for hours. The rooms have everything you need, comfortable beds and god quality... More

I was traveling with a large group with an overnight stopover in Jo'burg, and we stayed at the City Lodge. Very, very nice. The staff was extraordinarily helpful with our luggage, the restaurant was much better than expected, and the amenities were wonderful. Nice little self-serve coffee service in the rooms, which were quite comfortable, tastefully appointed and quiet. The... More

After escaping from Limpopo (long story) I decided I couldn't even fathom the thought of finding a hotel in the city, so I checked into this hotel at the airport for a few days. Sure it's expensive by South African standards, but it's also at the airport! You can walk from the main terminal, it's probably about 10 minutes. Don't... More

Stayed overnight between flights and was pleasantly surprised. This place would rate near 4 star in Australia. Rooms are modern, relatively spacious and well appointed with wood and stone surfaces. Bathroom had plenty of room (although shower alcove was a bit squeezy). Bed comfortable and clean and the room safe a bonus. Location means that this hotel is mainly used... More
