Understand that it is not the Hilton, but it comes at a good price, is quiet and clean, and the rooms are very livable. The tv and aircon in the room works very well. Nothing wrong here. I find it difficult to understand why this hotel got some very poor reviews. I would stay here again.

We stayed here for one night when on transit through Jo'burg up to the Blyde River Canyon. First things first, even with a sat nav the hotel was difficult to locate and those we asked for directions had never heard of it either. Eventually once located we hauled our 2 weeks worth of luggage in and checked in. We met... More

My wife and I travel a lot to Sandton on business and there is nothing that I love like a hotel that has the best rooms and takes great care of them. We enjoyed our weeknd stay. Its great for romantics on the move.Affordable as we did a group booking with other business partners.

We booked well in advance from the UK and were shown to a dark dingy room in the basement next to a busy road. The carpet was stained,the bedside light was not working and there was grease on the bedside table. We requested a change & were shown a slightly improved room upstairs. The most astonishing thing about this dreary... More

The City Lodge was a very clean and neat hotel. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay there. Great facilities such as a gym and swimming pool. Wonderful service from hotel staff. They were very accommodating to allow us to check in early and check out a bit late. It would be nice if the rooms had a bar fridge.

My husband and I recently travelled to Johannesburg for medical reasons where treatment was sought at the Morningside Medi Clinic in Johannesburg - this is directly across the road from the City Lodge on Hill Road in Morningside and within easy walking distance from the hospital.

I always make use of City Lodge hotels when travelling as they are usually affordable hotels with decent amenities. This time around I had to greet hotel staff and the guy at the front desk counter wasnt friendly at all. Anyway, they managed to give me early and late check out which was extremely convenient as I had an early... More

Hi all, Another business trip brought me to the city lodge hotel in Sandton, SA. The hotel was clean, had everything I require from a business hotel but the (free 60m/day) wifi was a bit shaky unfortunately. I can't really comment on the area, but from what I've heard it is a rather fancy business area. But we never actually... More
