I've stayed at the City Lodge numerous times and it is my preferred OR Tambo hotel. Staff is pleasant and efficient and the restaurant is quite good. Rooms are excellent for business use. Best is that you can walk directly from the airline gate to the hotel.

This Hotel makes travelling just that little more convenient being situated in close proximity of the Airport. Travelling from Cape Town to connect to flights out of Johannesburg makes this my choice of stay, by flying out there the day before, spending the evening and connect the following morning as oppose to early morning red eye flights! And you are... More

This is an average airport hotel, situated within close proximity to the airport gates. You can walk through the airport to get to the hotel, so no need to catch a cab. The breakfast at the hotel is OK. Wifi is available in the comfortable lounge downstairs. Rooms are basic.

We have stayed at this City Lodge on several occasions usually the night before flying out. It's very convenient, clean and efficient service at reception. I like the fact that it has an ice machine, something usually lacking at most hotels. The rooms are basic, though nicely furnished, and small. It comes with free wi-fi in the room, a flat... More

However she informed me that she enjoyed her room, but was harassed by a security guard that helped her take her luggage to the room. He started... More

Great place to stay when having early flight. Signage isn't great (as in most of Africa). but not too far from arrivals. room was small but very clean, comfy bed, good shower!. The food in the cafe was amazingly good and the wine was lovely!!. Thin walls between rooms (as in most of Africa). Very efficient staff for check out.

We stayed at this hotel for one night, and did not leave the hotel. The hotel was in the airport, so we did not leave the airport either. Our flight arriving in Johannesburg arrived at 11:30 pm and our next flight was at 9:30 am the next morning. Good breakfast, and pretty clean hotel.
