Stayed one night at this hotel while waiting for the rest of my party who were coming in on a later flight the following day. The proximity to the airport is fantastic! It is directly across from the arrival terminal (you exit the airport, cross one crosswalk and you are there in 1 minute). Very convenient. Check in at the... More

We stayed here on a recent stopover between flights and the location is truly perfect for the airport as it is literally across the road! The doormen, receptionists and restaurant staff were really friendly and welcoming. The room was lovely and the bed heaven after a long flight. We ordered room service and were very impressed by the quality. Breakfast... More

I stayed at this hotel at the end of May. It is the perfect place to stay if you are flying in to Johannesburg and departing the next day. It is literally just outside the door of the airport which is very convenient if you wake up late, as I did, and have to rush to the airport to catch... More

Hotel stay for one night ok. Room service menu very limited. Wine list had no sparkling and very limited. Breakfast room service was cold in the morning. Ok for a one night stay. Very expensive for nothing special.
