For a quick overnight stay this is a perfect choice. The price per room per night was very reasonable. Conveniently situated if you have to do business in Johannesburg. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean. We were thankful when we asked for a room on ground floor to get one.

My stay at this hotel was a pleasant surprise in many ways. Although I had some idea of the place before this was my first time to actually spend several nights there and appreciate it first hand. I arrived without prior booking but was checked in quickly and efficiently. The friendly and helpful receptionist in fact made the check in... More

The check-in was friendly and efficient with a good chat about the cricket. The rooms are basic but very clean and functional. Towels and soap are provided. For dinner a range of food is available via a delivery service. We didn't eat breakfast in the hotel but it looked very satisfactory. A small shopping village is within walking distance with... More

Check in was efficient but not done with any sign that they were in the least bit happy to have you stay ,very indifferent. The room was well cleaned although the toilet door was supposed to sliding one it wasn't oiled so stuck half way open. Internet was free or just 15 mins per day! The corridors unlike the clean...

This place is a joke!! Stayed here one night back on Nov. 2nd as our tour departed here the next morning. When we arrived after traveling all day, took the front desk staff(three people at the front desk) almost 10 minutes to find my reservation. One girl said we did not have a reservation. I had to give her the... More

We ussually stay at Rivonia Road Lodge, for 1-2 nights when we're just passing by Johannesburg. Although the hotel is not very nice we stay here because of the location and the vicinity and the price. The rooms are very small, the carpets are grimy, shower is very dirty (I always bring along my flip-flops and wear it to shower)... More

Initially I was disappointed; no bar, small rooms and poor internet. As my four nights progressed I realised that with Rivonia village close by and with the price of the rooms, the hotel was actually a very good staging post to explore the locale. Montecasino is one junction down the motorway and a rather inexpensive 'Spur'steak restaurant lies within a... More

This accommodation was booked for me admittedly at very short notice and without realising that It was a one star facility. The rooms are small with limited amenities that basically consist of one tiny bar of soap. Beds are extremely uncomfortable and the pillows are lumpy / very thin. When we complained about the pillows they did attempt to rectify... More

I stayed at this budget hotel on a recent unplanned overnight trip to Johannesburg with the wife. We arrived late at night and needed to leave first thing in the morning so we needed something easy on the pocket, this hotel did the trick. The location was ideal for our early morning visa interview at the Sandton CBD being right... More
