We stayed one night here. It was a nice hotel, close to the JNB airport with a shuttle bus between the hotel and airport (nominal charge per person, fills up at the 8:00 a.m. rush hour). We arrived in the morning after 2 days traveling from the US to S. Africa. Via email, we had asked for an early check-in since we knew we'd just want to crash for a few hours and they very nicely honored that request upon arrival (about 9 or 10 a.m. by the time we arrive at the hotel). Despite being within 5 minutes of the airport, it was quiet enough to sleep during the day and we weren't bothered by airplane noise or anything. The rooms were nice, clean, decent size (2 double beds, kids stayed free) Holiday Inn kind of standards (but it isn't affiliated with Holiday Inn anymore).
We were there in June, so it was too cold to use their outdoor pool but it looked nice.
I'd recommend it again as a nice reasonably priced airport layover hotel, but it isn't particularly close to anything much other than the airport. We booked online at the Sun hotels website and saved 5%., making it bit over $100 which was as good a rate as we could find.
