City Lodge Hotel OR Tambo Airport
Ranked #7 of 26 Hotels in Kempton Park
Reviewed August 4, 2010

If you have to spend a night at the airport, I think this is the hotel to go. It is IN the airport (no shuttle, just walk 500 meters inside the terminal and get a lift straight to the lobby of the hotel). It is new, neat, clean. Rooms are pretty good. Unfortunately, no free WiFi, which in such a hotel should be a must. Price is more than reasonable in comparison to other hotels in the airport area and in the city. Really, nothing significant to be criticized. It has a tiny gym which can be useful after a long flight.

During the ash cloud disaster I was stranded for no less than 12 days at the airport but thank god I could stay at the new Citylodge. It is spacious, has a nice pool and lobby area and offers very good breakfast. The interior is in dark tones and overall feels very comfortable and modern but without the unnecessary glitz or dumb decoration one finds in some 'contemporary' hotels. It offers Wifi in the lobby; shuttle buses are 1 min away and the hotel is directly connected to the aiport, 4 min walking. Remarkably it was very quite indeed. Staff are very accommodating and friendly though sometime the pace is not as quick as in Hong Kong.

Straight in front of the international arrival is a corridor leading to the hotel, which is the only hotel which I could enter without having to go outside or having to take a shuttle bus. The reception informed that I could sometimes get a better price at bid2stay.co.za, which I did (650 ZAR per night for 3 nights). The hotel was open about two months ago and is well designed. The room and the breakfast are was good. The hotel is in the same building as parking spaces. At the reception are screens that show departing times of airlines. In the morning are complementary different types of muffins and in the evening drinks. The staff is very helpful and friendly. It is very good to be able to walk straight into the terminals where there are many shops and restaurants. Next month the new Gautrain will start to running from the terminals building to different locations. I know many are worried about crimes in Johannesburg, but as a former police officer I consider it quite safe to stay at the hotel and go to the airport, because of the design and security measures.
