My first visit was one of a kind where I was treated like the only client.

This was our first hotel, after staying at guesthouses. The rooms were spacious and included all the normal suite amenities. The quality of the rooms, staff, and facilities is where this place fails. There was mold in the shower, the staff knew little about the hotel and area and it almost seemed to be a chore for them to serve... More

Even though the name of the hotel contains the word "airport", please do not get fooled; it is not within walking distance and they do not provide free airport shuttle service (or any shuttle service at all for that matter). The taxi to and from the airport would easily cost you 50+ rands. All night long, there was loud noise... More

The room looks great on the net in reality it's very run down . The promise of an internet service is all there is. a promise.The pool is not maintained with no fencing therefore a permanent cover over the pool.Most importantly the hotel is situated on two busy intersections and all the rooms face one street and the noise is...

As the name suggests, “Don Airport Hotel” is just a five minutes drive away from the “OR Tambo” airport. The three of us stayed in an apartment which had two bed rooms, a kitchen, a living room and two bathrooms. The apartment was clean, well-heated and included all the amenities we needed. The only problem was that during our nine... More

I am not much of a complainer, but this hotel was terrible. We stayed there one night before catching a flight to the Kruger area. As it is an airport hotel, I didn't expect much. When we arrived at JNB we were told that the airport shuttle was "broken" and that we had to get there on our own. We... More

The start of our stay was not great! As we would get there after dark, we were told that taxis were not the safest and had reserved a hotel shuttle to take us from the airport to the hotel. However the shuttle was not present upon our arrival. After a check with the hotel the shuttle had apparantly left the... More

The Don Suites is a quick 5 minute trip from the Airport. The taxi is cheap but if you want the shuttle, you have to call them when you land to collect you. Reception is very good, helpful and they quickly address any problems. They will arrange all sorts of transfers and tours. The rooms are large with a kitchen,... More

Stayed in the Don Johannesburg as an overnight. We flew into Johannesburg from Port Elizabeth late on a Fri evening. As we were flying out to Mauritius the following morning we just needed something simple, to rest ourselves close to the airport. First of all let me say that it is convenient to the OR Tambo airport (Johannesburg). But that... More

Spent four days at 'the Don' as something went wrong with my reservations for my normal hotel in the area (the Birchwood). Thought it might be a good chance to discover an alternative, as the Birchwood while not bad is still no great hang. Unfortunately, the Don didn't live up to expectations as the Birchwood was better. Let's start out... More
