We booked into this hotel as a sleepover between flights. For the very reasonable price, I didn't expect much but I did expect a good night's rest. The plumbing is so loud from all the surrounding bedrooms and the Beds are awful, so sleeping was impossible. I must mention that the service however was fantastic. The lady at the front... More

We booked this hotel because we were on our way to Dubai from Port Elizabeth and needed to spend one night in Johannesburg near the OR Thambo airport and leave early the next morning. I was really impressed with the service from front desk. Very happy and eager to help. The rooms were also impressive. This place is cheaper than... More

The girls who take care of you are so much fun! We loved their hospitality and warm embrasse. At our arrival they made us coffee and tea with cookies. The room we had wasn't that large, but it had everything we needed. The bathroom needed a ventilator as there was mold on the ceiling. The breakfast is great. It was... More

It wasn't expensive, and close to the airport, so we gave it a try. For that money we did not expect anything special. Very close to busy street, so it's not really quiet. No wifi in the rooms, net works only close to the reception (and is expensive). But very friendly and helpful staff.

Mattresses have a dip at the centre door handles in bathroom brocken. No utensils for coffee making water jugs and glasses. No dstv disappointing! Food must be offered as shops are a distance away for those who check in late.

We stayed there one night because the airport is close to it. The staff wasn't friendly. The receptionist told us that we will be offered a cup of tea or at least we can use a kettle when we come to the building where our room is. But the lady who was opening the gate for us didn't offer anything,... More

We used this Hotel as it was close to the airport and Emperors Palace. It was a one night sleep over value for money. The room and linen were clean. Staff were friendly. They offer shuttle service and breakfast.
