For years this is my favourite stop-over for business in Sandton. Always good value for money for a bed and clean room. The breakfast is nice and will keep you through a business day. What you get is the same as what you got the last time. Constant quality and service. I can see that the building will have to... More

This City Lodge has a restaurant on the premise - which means if you order room service you get it fast and hot - unlike other City Lodges in the area which use this restaurant remotely meaning their room service is slow and cold I had a small issue with the free WIFI dropping in and out ...which they promised...

Did not like it! The service staff are hardly ever at reception. There is nobody to help you with the bags up and down the stairs. Tried calling the reception a few times during the day. Not once did they answer. Had to physically wall down the very long corridor with at least 80 rooms and up the stairs every... More

I got here very late. Good and cheerful staff on arrival. My room was a smoking room and this meant bad smoke smell, which i did not enjoy. Average room, not bad in size and did not mind the bathroom. The staff at breakfast were really bad and uninterested and lacked motivation. The breakfast spread was not bad. I would... More

Between the travel agency, Astra Travel & the hotel they canceled my booking before I even arrived. Go for the bathroom facilities upon arrival as booking in at the reception will take a while. No breakfast take-away on Saturday mornings..just in case you were planning on hitting the road very early...just too bad! We are all adults why must the... More

We usually stay in a City Lodge, and each one has it's advantages. This Lodge has a good location, good staff and a very nice restaurant, Carpe Diem, next door. We usually have breakfast across the road (driving), at Tasha's, just because it is fun to get out. The food at the hotel is fresh, but basic hotel fare. Choose... More

The stay was lovely. The staff went the extra mile and put me in a room where there wouldn't be much noise as they were having a function. The rooms are clean and neat. When I need assistance for a bee in my room, they glady came to help. Will stay there again

Close to everything you need. The entrance is right next to the S2 Gallo manor route for the gautrain bus. Room was cozy and modern. Counter staff seemed flustered and unprofessional. Breakfast was good and serving ladies were friendly. No wifi access.
