This hotel offers a no fuss check in and stay. Rooms are small, but offer the necessary. Breakfast can be paid separately. I recommend this hotel to guests traveling for business, who needs a quick stop over with minimum effort. Staff is friendly and helpful.

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night before flying to Botswana for safari. We were exhausted after two long overnight flights and did not feel like leaving the airport. Our agent suggested the City Lodge and it was perfect. You do not leave the airport. Follow the clearly visible signs to the elevator which is clearly marked "City... More

This is the place to stay if you are transiting through Johannesburg. You don't even have to leave the airport. Rooms are okay. Small. But if you want a simple sleep before or after your safari. This is the place. - Excellent breakfast too.

Very convenient hotel. Needed a place to stay before my vacation at a lodge in Vaalwater, and this place was perfect. Room was large, quiet and clean, Internet is now free for your entire visit. Hotel was very easy to find and you don't have to walk outside the hotel. After exiting the departure area, I turned left. I was... More

I stayed here for a few hours only after an early flight into JNB and I needed to wash and change before starting my meetings. The location was perfect as you can safely walk to the hotel from inside the airport. The room was spacious and clean. The check in staff were really friendly, helpful and quicker than the average...

We stayed at the City Lodge Hotel prior to embarking on our two week safari adventure with my family of six. We landed at OR Tambo around 9pm, and after collecting our baggage we followed the clearly defined signs within the airport to the hotel entrance. We never had to go outside and safety not an issue.

I booked two rooms for the night before our flights back to the U.S. following 3 weeks in the African bush on safari. While I normally book lodges with more of an 'Out of Africa' feel, we booked here due to availability. Great move as the more modern hotel created a nice transition back into civilization. Meanwhile, the location (connected... More

This hotel is a good option if you're connecting through Johannesburg. My wife and I needed a place to crash for the night before our trip to Kruger the next morning, and City Lodge fit the bill. City Lodge's best feature is that you can walk there without leaving the airport. It's only a 10 minute walk from baggage claim... More
