Need a good, clean, affordable hotel in Jo'burg near airport

Hi. My husband and I need a hotel in Johannesburg for just one night while waiting for a connecting flight the next morning.

We don't want to spend a huge amount of money on a glitsy hotel, but would like to be in a pretty decent hotel that has a decent restaurant in it, that is close enough to the airport, clean, safe and affordable. Any recommendations?

We'd like to stay close to $150 for the night (not per person) as possible.

Thanks.

Johannesburg, South...

hiya... I just answered a post here: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g312578-i9273-k219…

about the emporer hotel. - Its 5 star - but if your budget is $150 per person then I'd definitely recommend it without reservation. I stayed here some years back the night before we flew for our honeymoon. - Fantastic hotel - right at the casino etc with shuttles to the airport.

I see you from new york. You are going to LOVE your holiday to SA. - Enjoy it. ;-)

PS: I'm visiting NYC this weekend and cannot wait. I've already planned to go to Papayas for a hotdog ;-)

And to B & H photo for a new camera for my trip to Kruger over Christmas.

Enjoy your holiday.

sorry, I miss-read your post. I thought you said you WANT to spend $150 per person.

The Senator at Caesars south-african-hotels.com/senator-hotel-caesa… is also nice and has airport shuttles too.

And being at caesars you'll have a choice of restaurants etc.

There are two Southern Sun Hotels by the airport - you may want to check out the cheaper one - www.southernsun.co.za - otherwise as the other post said, the City Lodge Group is basic (I don't think they do dinner though - only breakfast - but I think you can order a takeout from the room).

We stayed at the Africa Sky Guesthouse- they can provide you with dinner- but dont have a formal restaurant... they have an airport shuttle - the total cost will be under $150.

This is the company that operates 3 hotels at the Emperor's Palace Casino complex on the airport grounds: peermont.com/peermont/view/peermont/en/page1

Use the pulldown menu to find the Metcourt at Emperor's Palace and the Mondior. I have clients staying overnight at the Mondior in December for less than $150 for the night. But - when I was telling one of Sales Executives at Peermont about that booking, she was a little surprised and indicated that it should have been more than that. Testing a couple of dates just now, I did find it a LOT more expensive than that, but Metcourt will be less.

The Souther Sun, Garden Court OR Tambo Intl (not to be confused with the Southern Sun OR Tambo Intl) is your best bet. Think Courtyard by Marriott: Roomy, professional, buisnessy. It has a lively bar, a great breakfast, a beautiful pool, and free airport shuttle. It will definitely be < 150. You can book through http://www.southernsun.com/.

Cheers and happy travels! Where is your final destination?

bwanadave is bang on, the hotels at emperors palace are probably your best bet. The metcourt laurel is below $150 per night for a room and the airport shuttles are free.

I checked out the web site and the Metcourt Laurel is about US$30 more than the Garden Court for two, but the rate includes breakfast and access to that wild looking mall attraction, or whatever it is. I'll definitely give it a try when I travel to Joburg soon.
