This is without a doubt the best hotel I have stayed at in Johannesburg. Excellent buffet dinners and breakfasts, clean, modern and spacious rooms, excellent and friendly service - attention to detail not lacking at all. I am so happy I have found this gem!

This hotel is really one of the best value for money hotels I have visited. Firstly the shuttle service to and from the airport to the hotel is on time, the drivers are friendly and helpful and explain the service well. There is always a daily paper in the shuttle in the event that one must wait for the shuttle... More

we found this hotel met all our needs for an overnight stay between flights. Airport shuttle is convenient, but only operates from 6am so we had to pay for a taxi to get back to OR Tambo for an early flight. Rooms are clean and comfortable.

With the free shuttle it is a worthwhile option to the "in-airport" hotels. However, be sure to give yourself 30 minutes extra travel time, even though the hotel is 10 min. away. If you take into account time to load people into the shuttle and unloading, and waiting at traffic lights, well... 30 minutes is a safer planning. We highly... More

This hotel has everything going for it, and would have gotten a 4- or 5-star, IF ONLY THE WIFI WORKED properly. This is a business hotel, often used for conferences (as was the case in my visit), and it just boggles the mind that the wireless Internet service it provides is so poor: First, it uses the annoying voucher system,...

Needed to stay two nights near the Jo'burg airport in order to gather together friends from the UK who were joining us. Chose this hotel as we had not been very satisfied with the Southern Sun on previous stays, and the InterContinental is expensive and would not budge on price even though we were booking several room nights. Arrived in... More

We needed an overnight hotel before an early morning flight and this one was available through air miles. It is very practically located only 10 min from the terminal. The shuttle service is prompt and starts at 5 am and finishes late. That part works well. We had a lovely big executive room with 2 double beds for our family... More

I'm spent five days in The Premier Hotel OR Tambo and its been a wonderful experience. The hotel has a real value for money, the staff are courteous and the food is superb.

Mandy and I spent less than 12 hours at the Premier OR Tambo but this was long enough for a very good nights sleep and a good breakfast before travelling onwards. We had arrived into Joburg from Amsterdam at 9.15 pm after leaving Birmingham at 6am that morning. Following customs clearance and luggage collection we went to the shuttle bus... More
