What a ripoff! The rooms are like a monks cell with curtains hung on the wall to make it look like there is a window behind. When you draw back the curtain - Voila: a cold blank wall. No windows at all. The AC did not work, there was no restaurant at all in the hotel (you have to go...

We stayed overnight in order to catch an early connection to Mauritius. The hotel was clean and the rooms more than adequate so long as you don't need to unpack- there is very little cupboard space. The bathrooms are a feature and are part of the bedroom. Breakfasts are sufficient though there was only one cook to do all the...

Had a long layover on the way home. Instead of sitting in the airport stayed in the hotel. Smaller room but very comfortable. Funky shower but plenty of hot water. Check in was quick. Desk staff friendly and very helpfull. Plenty of smiles. Rooms are quiet, the only noise was the doors closing form the other rooms.

Nice and modern hotel with aviation theme. Located near the airport which made it convenient. Offers free shuttle service. Room was contemporary with cool open bathroom, but somewhat dark as it only had one small window. Good breakfast selection, nice range of food in the restaurant and a nice outdoor pool area. Be aware that it lies next to the...

Nice place. Clean, new or newly redecorated with an airplane theme. Very convenient to the airport, although a little tricky to get to, but not bad. $12 breakfast that we passed on. Decorated like an airport hanger. We stayed here for 7,500 Marriott points. That's a bargain. Easy on to the freeway that goes to Kruger Park.

We spent the night on our way to Victory Falls. The room was clean and nice. The hotel makes spending the night in the airport easy. (no need to pass through security again when you head to your flight in the morning.) If you need to spend the night at Joburg airport, this is the place to stay. But that...

Convenient, but underwhelming. There are two floors of rooms. The ones on the "3rd" floor have their A/C controlled by the airport. The room was blistering and tiny with shower in the bedroom. I asked what could be done, and was moved to 4th floor where rooms are "Premium" and have their own A/C unit and a proper shower +...

I stayed overnight here because our flight landed at 10pm and we had a 10am flight out the next day. It was very convenient b/c we didn't have to do passport control in the am. The place was a bit creepy - there was no one in the hotel. The room is small but we didn't care b/c it was...

Stayed here 1 night while in-transit to Livingstone. Very quiet and modern hotel. The rooms are typical of Marriott. The hotel is conveniently located in the terminal. You can walk to restaurants and shops located in the terminal. Please note that this is an in-transit hotel. You can't go to baggage claim from this hotel. Also, be sure to print...
