Good Transit Stop

Cleanliness, Convenience and Comfort
We had about 20 hours between flights into Johannesburg and out to Entebbe. After a 14 hour flight from Australia, the clean comfort of the transit hotel was most welcome. A hot shower and clean sheets on the King Size bed were most welcome. We slept well. The hotel has no dining facilities but easy access to the departures level of the airport with the assortment of coffee shops and other eateries. This is a regular stop for us on our trips to Africa.

The only choice, in transit at Jo'burg!

Location (international airport), clean, easy access
As we were on our route to an exotic destination, due to our 20 hour transit time, we had no choice but to select this hotel. There is no other choice in the airport. Everything else is outside and requires a visa. Check in process was smooth. Long walk to the room. All rooms are non-smoking and it is a super long walk to the smoking lounge located in the Johannesburg duty free area. Room was clean, efficient. Towels were ok. There were hardly any amenities and bathroom supplies, which considering the rather high price you pay for the room is a disappointment. The view was as good as zero. The only "exciting" thing to do was to walk around the duty free area. There was no food provided in the hotel, as they have no kitchen. So the only option for any guest is to go to the duty free restaurants. We were glad to have a private space and hot water, but we were gladder to leave.

Good as airport hotel

location, price, clean
Not very good as we arrive with the baby just to take a shower a quickly stay for transit and they doesn't want grandma stay together because the room just can accommodate 2 adults. But we just need the room to organise the things as we are going from BR to CN with a baby and the flight is very long. They charge us to aloud grandma stay together. I think was not good from hotel

Average, ONLY for international transits

Close to airport, clean, no custom check out
Did not stay as my next flight was domestic and had to clear customs if not will not be able to fly domestic. Please take note of this before doing booking.
