This was the most fantastic solution for us - after a long flight from Brazil, waiting at JHB for 15 hours before heading out to Perth we were exhausted. Being able to walk to this hotel from the Airport (really well signed/though the inside of the terminal) was so convenient. We didn't have a booking but the lady we dealt with at reception quickly arranged something for us and was so friendly!
Instead of paying for a full night, with breakfast, we took their day rate which was just on R600 - from 9am until 5pm. We asked for a quiet room (so we could sleep) and it was perfect.. crashed for 5 hours in blissful silence. The room was surprisingly spacious with a large bathroom (bath & shower).
You get 15 mins free wifi, and can pay for more. They have a pool (not suitable for laps), lounge, cafe and the airports literally a 7 min walk.
The hotel was really tastefully done (no direct impact as such but is worth mentioning) and super clean.
Again, the staff were fantastic - such a friendly country :)
For anyone with a long stay over in JHB, this place is perfect.. get horizontal and have a hot shower!
