Super hotel, clean, modern, wifi, gym is good, salad bar is excellent, service is professional. A great place to stay in between flights! We've stayed there several times and it's consistently professional and easy checkin and out. Free shuttle to and from airport.

After a long flight, this is a good hotel to stay during your first night in SA. It is located near the airport, but nevertheless they have a frequent and free shuttle bus to get you there. The hotel is quite comfortable with good rooms and no airport noise inside. They have a great breakfast buffet. Staff is attentive and... More

The hotel is accessible via a short shuttle bus which worked well. For the price I guess you cannot expect too much and all services and rooms are calibrated to this standard. The reception is reasonably polity for being a hospitality associate in Jo'burg and slightly beats the bad receptions that seems to permeate the airport employees. There should be... More

I always stay at this hotel when I need to be close to the airport in Jo'burg. The rooms are comfortable, the staff is always friendly and the restaurant is better than you would expect for an airport hotel. I love the wine and cheese happy hour each night and will return to this hotel whenever I need a room... More

Instead of travelling from Namibia to Hong Kong on one day I decided to spend the night at the hotel. Two friends visited me that evening. The hotel staff offered all of us a very warm welcome and even invited my friends, non-paying guests, to join in the welcome drinks. The general courtesy of the staff is highly commendable. When...

Our family ( 2 adults, 2 kids) stayed at this hotel on our way back from Kruger for 1 night. It was brilliant, we had free drinks in the lobby with a pianist playing which the kids danced to. The room was clean and bedding comfortable for a good nights sleep. Breakfast was included which had a great variety and... More
