The hotel is great inthe manner that is equivalent to the money. I wish the whole tv could be having at least 1x Supersport channel and at least 1xMovie channel. The whole point of coming to hotel is still to relax and Sabc Channels don't offer such. Improve the breakfast. I think this an area that needs improvement over and... More

For the price , it's ok if you only need a place to stay overnight . They upgraded since my last stay . The area is safe as well as secure car park. It's about 10 min drive to the airport . There is no food outlets in the area . Vending machines with the basics like tea/coffee available .the... More

Like almost everything in Johannesburg, this hotel is very overpriced. Bedrooms are ok, but room service is bad. I also dislike their bed... it's hard, with a thin mattress... and I like harder mattress, but that one was too much! I had a problem with PAID AND EXPENSIVE wi-fi during the night, and their receptionist just told me he couldn't... More

The booking was easy on line. The car parking facility was excellent. The reception was friendly and allocation of the room was quick and to my chosen floor. The room was set well. The room aircon was not cooling to the standard i needed. so, I kept the window open with the safety latch intact throughout the night. However, I... More

Very conveniently situated close to the OR Tambo airport. easy to find. Friendly, helpful reception; however, checking in took a while (bearing in mind it was after midnight!) The rate I booked at online was less than what they charged us - I questioned them honouring the online booking price and they asked if I prepaid - no - so... More

This hotel is not that bad, considering the low price. It’s also very good located next to the airport. The biggest problem was when we made the booking. We faxed our credit card number as a guarantee for late arrival. We asked them to confirm that they received the fax, twice by fax, and twice by phone. At the last... More

This place is made of plastic. You can hear everything from everywhere. Breakfast was OK, but no fruit of protein available. Tons of rules about what can and cannot be done. Couldn't get an extra blanket to save our lives. The staff at the desk and at the breakfast were great. The security people kept us up knocking on our... More
