After 16 hours of flights, tired beyond belief, it was easy to and quick find; staff were welcoming, accommodating, and friendly. My room was ready, clean and inviting, with quality toiletries. Breakfast the next morning was varied, fresh, and the coffee excellent - a great welcome to South Africa

Thankfully, I was only forced to spend less than 12 hours in this hotel. A minute longer and I would have gone crazy! Apparently, (although the hotel is NOT connected to the airport at any point) because of it's proximately, the rules and regulations are astounding. Don't plan to celebrate any special occasions here since NO pictures is one of... More

Very good hotel, clean and well kept, within a 2 min walk from the international arrival. Room is adecuate and nicely decorated. Good bathroom and spacious shower. Service: when leaving bellboy will take your luggage to the checkin counter at the airport. Excellent hotel for overnight stay due to delays, stopover, etc.

Travel agent booked, we were very pleased with the overall hotel, modern, clean, every need was met. Food was amazing, staff was better than amazing ! The breakfast buffet was just spectacular, and was part of the "B & B" package.

A walk distance from OR Tambo (in fact it is inside the airport) the hotel is very convenient, modern, clean and a impeccable services I strongly recommend this hotel. The food is delicious and recommend Beef and Malva Pudim as desert. The rates are not cheap, but the quality is high.

It has been several years since I needed to spend the night at OR Tambo Intl Airport, but my previous experiences - documented on trip advisor - with airport hotels there were miserable.
