We stated here for one night before heading off to Kruger. It is conveniently close to the airport and very easy to find. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Breakfast was buffet style, good value for money with lots to close from.

Our flight to Europe was cancelled and suddenly 536 passengers had to be allocated hotels. We were sent to Premier with 120 other passengers. Although we waited for a while for small shuttles to pick us up, once we arrived at the hotel our rooms were processed almost immediately. It took a while to get our cases upstairs as there... More

My wife and I were on a safari trip that used the nearby OR Tambo Protea as the arrival night hotel. At the end of our tour, we decided to stay an extra night so as to spend some time at Johannesburg and found the OR Tambo Premier hotel to be of excellent value for a conveniently located airport hotel....

I stayed at this hotel for 5 days and highly recommend it for its friendly and helpful staff. It's a short distance from the airport and provides a free shuttle service to and fro. There's also a shuttle service to the Rhodesfield Gautrain station for those who are interested in going to Sandton, a major shopping centre. Just be warned... More

We stayed here our first night in South Africa--a great place to stay near the airport. The food was phenomenally good. The beef fillet is highly recommended. The room was very well appointed, bathroom and shower were great and we had a tub as well. We had an issue with a stolen phone on our way to Africa and the... More

This is a good hotel, somewhere between average and very good. I liked the hotel outlook and surroundings. The hotel is located near OR Tambo international airport. Unless I was lucky, there were no traffic jams and I made it to the airport in no time at all. The rooms are good and clean. The bedding was clean and so... More

Used this hotel in transit. Free shuttle service to and from ORT. Luxurious rooms, modern bathroom, great view of the airport from room. Restaurant and bar looked inviting although I did not get a chance to try them out. Looking forward to going back.
