Although not the first time in this hotel, never had the pleasure to describe it. Come to a city the first temptation is to rest and if the target is Joanesburg the first choice is the City Lodge. First service, fantastic facilities and a great location make this one of my favorite hotels in the land of Mandela. In the... More

I have stayed here on a number of occasions. I have always found the staff to be helpful and efficient. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. Beds are very comfortable. The situation right at the airport, make it very convenient. The conference facilities are also excellent. I would recommend staying here, for a good experience.

I was extremely impressed by the overall standard of this hotel - the rooms are spacious, well-equipped, good bathroom, very good Wi-Fi connectivity, great breakfast.... It is very convenient for short stays/transits in Johannesburg, specially as it is located within the airport terminal, a short walk from the arrival and departure terminals, making it completely safe at any time of...

I like the hotel due to the closeness to the airport. Jut a walking distance away from the departure and arrival gates. When you get in the hotel, you forget that you are within the airport area, it has a great environment, good and friendly staff. The rooms are spacious and neat. Very nice hotel for staying up to 5... More

Not the first time I have covered this hotel. Located within the ORT parking area, NOT at a distance such as its major competitor, Protea. Very convenient for using as a base for transfers or a hub for business travel. Rooms are basic, but clean and well appointed. Whatever they don't have can be obtained from the small mall inside...

This hotel is very convenient for a long layover in Johannesburg. The staff is extremely kind and professional. They will help with all your needs. Rooms are comfortable, food is good, but a bit expensive. Compared to other hotels this close to the airport, this is a great deal.

City Lodge is always my "go to" hotel when I arrive in Jo'burg! Perfectly situated and very convenient. Takes no more than 5 mins to walk there once I get off the plane! Have stayed there a few times now and the rooms have always been immaculate! Very comfy beds. Staff are always very friendly and polite. Will definitely stay... More

Only having one quick night in Joberg before going off on safari I wanted a quick easy answer to accommodation for the night. This was cheap and meant I didn't have to leave the airport ground. I had little expectations but was very pleasantly surprised. The room was clean, a decent size and even the window opened to allow in... More

The hotel is perfectly situated on the roof parking at the OR Tambo international airport. Parking area leads directly to the lifts into the hotel, which makes your morning commute to the airport very efficient. The continental breakfast was fulfilling and the lounge/restaurant area was light and spacious. We would stay again if passing through. It was perfect for this... More
