I almost always stay in one of the group hotels when traveling in South Africa, which I do regularly. (i'd only had a problem once) This was my first stay in this specific hotel. Staff were friendly, room well-appointed and the experience pain-free. Will I stay here again? Sure, if I need be be nearby.

Stayed here on business in March. Room was fine and bed was comfortable. The breakfast wasn't anything special however there was a varied selection and the staff were friendly and attentive. If I were to visit this area again on business I would perhaps stay here again. If I were to visit with family I'm sure I would find a... More

The City Lodge in Morningside, Sandton, is for me a safe and steady bet for staying overnight mainly due to its convenience to access the office in JHB. While it does not shoot the lights out in terms of hotels, it is comfortable and convenient and it is within an area that feels safe to go for a run at... More

This is where we as a company default to stay out of convenience in Sandton. For more than 2 years now I have not eaten breakfast here. Accommodation is acceptable but service is just not op up scratch and the themes are recurring. I stay here on average 4 nights a month

We don’t get many complaints about our breakfast and we usually pride ourselves on our “I’m Kind” service, so we will bring this up with hotel management.

I stayed here for 5 days on a business trip. How I wished that experience could have been much better... Breakfast was the best part of the entire stay and it was just the average fare.

I've stayed in City Lodge in other places and it is just a great place to stay especially for business travellers.

Conveniently located across the road from the Mediclinic allowing a safe 2 minute walk to visit patients. The hotel has recently been refurbished and the staff add even more delight to one's stay. Professional, courteous & unobtrusive - always smiling & ready to help.
