We booked the wrong hotel. We thought we had booked the one at the airport but when we went to check in we were told our reservation was for the one listed as Barbara Road. We were told it was a 5 minute shuttle that was low cost. BUT the shuttle stops at two other hotels first, took 20-30 minutes... More

The City Lodge has great welcoming staff at the reception area, very engaging, pleasant and very warm. The room I was in, was nicely small, enough for me and to I still didn't feel that much lonely because of the size of the room, as compared if it was big. Their food is a bit limited, but understandably so because... More

Standard city lodge rooms - spacious, clean, comfortable. The staff is very friendly and the location is very helpful if you are traveling out of OR Tambo, but do not want to get stuck at the airport.

Really great hotel, right next to the airport and public transport into the city area. Most rooms have an amazing airport view. There's a wonderful dining room and the huge airport right on your doorstep to shop and get food. Definitely a great place to stay

Room was good - clean and well equiped with plugs and desk to charge laptops, phones etc. Staff were pleasant at checkin. I enjoyed the complimentary muffin and coffee at reception especially for a crack of dawn start to the day.

We have never had any problems booking and staying here after 3 trips. The staff is always friendly and eager to help. The restaurant staff are nice and helpful in any way they can. Any requests for adjoining rooms or room locations has been met.

Difficult to find from the airport as the signs just dissappear. Even my local guide who collected me at reception the next day, got lost on the way out. Bedroom window wouldn't shut properly. Other than the above was ok for the price
