“Good Value and Well Situated”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

Another home away from home in JHB. Close to Sandton City and to the M1 north to Pretoria. I stay here at least once a month and the staff are friendly and efficient. The breakfast is average, but who needs a big breakfast when travelling for work. We have a Corporate rate which makes it the best value for money in JHB.

We enjoy Johannesburg City Lodges which is a cut above some of their other outlets in smaller towns. What is apparent with this particular hotel is the helpful and professional staff. My wife stayed for 3 nights here and I joined her on the last night. The room was comfortable and met with our needs.

The check in and check out was painless with very efficient staff. The dining room was comfortable and the menu was adequate.

Service was the aspect that stood out - in all spheres and this is a real complement to the City Lodges Group of Hotels - keep up the good work!

I chose this hotel for a three day stopover in Johannesburg; I was looking for something affordable with a decent location. I was pleased by the hotel, and I would gladly return again.

Hard product: It looks like the hotel has been renovated recently, and the public space design and furnishing are up-to-date and comfortable. The room I was also in good shape, albeit with a simple layout and modest space. The bed was nice, bathroom clean, and the small desk area made it easy to work in the room. The only (minor) complaint I'd have is that the bathroom lacked sufficient hooks for towels, especially hand towels. But I was very pleased by the accommodations.

Soft product: The staff I encountered were all pleasant at a minimum and in some cases quite warm and friendly. The front desk staff stood out in particular, especially at check in. The cafe/bar was a great asset (especially since there are limited options outside the hotel close by). The food was surprisingly good, both at breakfast and off the a la carte lunch/dinner menu.

In short, the hotel exceeded my expectations, especially in its class.

Room Tip: Rooms on the interior courtyard and quieter and have a more pleasant view.

We live in the fourways area and decided to book ourselves into a hotel for one night. We shopped around on the net and all hotels in the fourways precinct were fully booked. We then found city lodge morningside. I did an online booking but didn't get a confirmation that the booking was done. Upon check in I had found that the online booking was made, I was impressed but yet felt that I should have received the confirmation by email. Nevertheless our night stay was pleasant. Rooms were clean, the kids enjoyed their breakfast. Parking was a bit of an issue at night but we eventually found one.

The hotel itself is not bad at all. Romms are comfortable, clean and newly painted.
It has a small & clean swimming pool and also a GYM (for 3 people at a time, but it's something)
Full English breakfast is ok and you have also a good choice of cold fishes (herrings, slamon, etc) and fruits (guava, litches, orange, peach, figs, etc...).
BUT!
1) there is no §"true" restaurant in the hotel and the nearest restaurant is around 20 mins far (by walk)
2) if you ask to reception, they will suggest you not to wander around after 20:00, so neighbour is unsafe.
SOLUTION: take a taxi to have your dinner!

If I have to work for cell C, probably I will return here as the hotel very nea , but otherwise not.

I stayed in this hotel for 7 days during my business trip to Johannesburg and was intially exhilarated by the view of it, it has very clean & neat rooms, sandwich counter not a in house restaurant, buffet breakfast but the support staff lack warmth in service, some are sweet but over all they can improve by doing things as simple as smiling ! On one of the days we were standed without water but that was issue with entire Sandton not specific to hotel, and don't miss the small lovely pool at the back of hotel !
