Excellent service,overall warm and welcoming. Only issue is that guests should not be paying for parking. I also suggest that the Hotel has a map or guideline of areas that they wish to visit if they are going on an excursion or outing for the day. When I left the hotel, to go to Benoni or Boksburg I had no... More

I enjoyed the... More

Close to airport. Shuttle to and from airport. Nice clean rooms with fridge provided. Nice gym in hotel. Rooms can be stuffy and sometimes aircon dont work. Expect to pay for your parking and room service prices vary from day to day based on ordering similar items

BA was forced to cancel our return flight to London for technical reasons so we were put up overnight in this airport hotel. The airport is a few steps away but there is a transfer coach which run regularly with very polite service from the driver. The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. There is a modest pool but the... More

Functional and pleasant hotel for my 15 day business trip. Staff very friendly and helpful, service with a smile from all. Location ideal for business with good connection to the highways and hotel shuttle service to and from hotel makes this a good base for both business or vacation.

For convenience and peace of mind to catch your flight on time, nothing beats the Tsogo Sun OR Tambo International Hotel. This place is like an oasis in the bustling OR Tambo airport precinct.

All the staff members, from receptionist, waiters at your restaurant, were very professional in their approach, very friendly and helpful during my entire stay at the hotel. I have stayed at a number of hotels before, and this one is now one of them that I would definitely recommend to friends and colleagues.
