The price would tell you everything to be fair , the area is an industrial estate near the airport , well near a good 10 min drive away . The staff need training , the room needs a good clean and as for the shower well there was so much black mold I would suggest sandblasting . And it took... More

So I needed a quick stop over and a place to get some shut eye. This place was very affordable and convenient. The staff were very helpful, just took forever to check-in. The supervisor on duty had a guest in the reception area until late in th night, the sound travels terribly and the doors are not very sound proof,... More

We booked a room as a stopover since our flight from OR Tambo was leaving at 00:35 and we had arrived in Johannesburg early in the morning. The staff was very helpful and friendly especially the lady at the reception. The linen was clean but the bathroom needs ventilation. No food is served at the lodge but you can order... More

We booked into this hotel as a sleepover between flights. For the very reasonable price, I didn't expect much but I did expect a good night's rest. The plumbing is so loud from all the surrounding bedrooms and the Beds are awful, so sleeping was impossible. I must mention that the service however was fantastic. The lady at the front... More

We booked this hotel because we were on our way to Dubai from Port Elizabeth and needed to spend one night in Johannesburg near the OR Thambo airport and leave early the next morning. I was really impressed with the service from front desk. Very happy and eager to help. The rooms were also impressive. This place is cheaper than... More

The girls who take care of you are so much fun! We loved their hospitality and warm embrasse. At our arrival they made us coffee and tea with cookies. The room we had wasn't that large, but it had everything we needed. The bathroom needed a ventilator as there was mold on the ceiling. The breakfast is great. It was... More

It wasn't expensive, and close to the airport, so we gave it a try. For that money we did not expect anything special. Very close to busy street, so it's not really quiet. No wifi in the rooms, net works only close to the reception (and is expensive). But very friendly and helpful staff.

Mattresses have a dip at the centre door handles in bathroom brocken. No utensils for coffee making water jugs and glasses. No dstv disappointing! Food must be offered as shops are a distance away for those who check in late.
