This hotel has a lot going for it. My room was nice and quiet, with a big desk to work at. The restaurant food is good; when you check in, they have all these adverts for delivery food, but seriously you don't need them. The bed was nicely firm, for a good sleep. The airport shuttle was a bit confusing...

Arrived one evening in May 2017 without a booking. Details from a previous visit were immediately retrieved by reception staff. I was quickly and efficiently booked in and directed to my room. Room was spotless. Didn't take advantage of the bar or breakfast but based on past experience both are perfectly acceptable.

This City Lodge is a safe bet when in the JHB airport area. Good modern rooms and good breakfast. I have stayed here numerous time and never had an issue. This is my first choice when in the area. TIP: The most quite rooms are in the new wing in the 300 range. The rooms are however quite a distanc...

I have stayed here many time. It is basic and comfortable This trip, at midnight I was woken by someone hammering on my door. I say he has the wrong room. So he hammers more, then moves outside to hammer like hell on my window. Then the front desk call and rather than ask me anything, they put the mad...

We spent one night only, passing by to take a flight at OR Tambo Airport. The guy who checked us in was in a bad mood, we asked for a non smoking room and got one smelling like a pack of Marlboro, etc. Not even a single bottle of water in the room, expensive transfer and breakfast (get a Uber,...

I arrived late one Friday night, having missed a connection. I had no rand on me, just cards so travelling out of the airport wasnt an option. The City Lodge is within the airport complex, just follow the signs once you're out of immigration. This place is busy and it's big, which was just as well as it meant they...

It is located at short distance from Airport and comfortable rooms offers a nice breakfast and the only shortcoming I can see is that does not offer much of choice when it comes to Dinner otherwise it is nice place to stay

Recently spent 1 night at the City Lodge, Barbara street. Nothing short of disappointing. Dinner option was poor inside the hotel and when I eventually found something I watched it stand for up to 10 minutes before it was brought to me. Glad I won't have to stay there again .
