    Johannesburg Airport Hotel (best city hotel too)”

    Hotel within the airport so 2mins walk with your trolley. they do day rate from 8pm - 5pm. We had 2 days and 1 night here and it was perfect. Ask hotel to book you Cosmos the driver, he is reliable, honest and great cultural experience. if like us, you dont know where to stay then this location is perfect. its about 30mins to city and Apartheid Museum (allow 2hrs and excellent), 2hrs out to Sun City for an afternoon safari. dont stay overnight - Cosmos will bring you back same day. Great food, hotel staff friendly and joking.

    Above average”

    I paid over R1600.00 for sleep only. The chargers for mobile phones is pathetic. As a large hotel group, I would expected a variety of universal chargers for the mobile phones. The coffee sachets are exactly two, and not a dry biscuit is served with it., little alone not even a bottle of water. The bathrooms has no small cloths to accomodate showering or bathing. There was banging in the hotel at 1am and people in the passage were loud and disturbing the peace. The hair dryer is an absolute joke. One cannot even dry a dolls hair that is how pathetic and low the watt on the hairdryer is. Sadly, I would not stay there again after my personal experience. Helen Kartsounis

    GOOD FOR LAYOVER”

    I HAVE STAYED AT CITY LODGE SEVERAL TIMES DUE TO OVERNIGHT LAYOVERS AT JNB. IT IS VERY CONVENIENT, HAS ALWAYS BEEN CLEAN WITH A HELPFUL, POLITE STAFF. THE ONLY CHANGE I WOULD MAKE IS THE RESTAURANT. IT'S NICE ENOUGH WITH A NICE STAFF BUT THE FOOD NEEDS AN UPGRADE, THE MENU IS LIMITED AND SOME OF IT IS "PREPARED IN ADVANCE".

    Feel the cost for a single traveller high. Pity no “ last minute” specials available. ”

    For a single woman traveling in from overseas and needing to take early flight next morning the proximity is excellent. Gives one of sense of security remaining at the airport. Find the price too high.

    Immediately outside the airport”

    We arrived and used google to find the hotel; it only offered the City Lodge that was a few km away so we took an Uber there. The staff kindly shifted our booking from the one at the airport and sent us back by shuttle in the morning for our early flight. The room was clean and bathroom where we stayed was huge. AC was a huge plus. Comfortable beds.

    A great transit option”

    We stayed here for one night between a long layover. The hotel was super easy to get to - just follow the signs right from the arrivals hall. Our room was clean and a good size. All the staff were super kind and friendly. The restaurant had decent options for good value. If I ever have a long layover in Jburg again, I will definitely stay here.

    Good value for money”

    We had an overnight stop in Johannesburg, with an early morning flight the next day. This hotel is attached to the airport, albeit a 10 minute walk from the terminals, so is very convenient. Check-in was slick, and the room was adequate. There is a restaurant, or you could go to the terminal for a bigger choice of eating places. Good value for money, although our final room bill was more than advertised by Agoda.

    I arrived really early and the hotel had not received my request for an early check in. The hotel nevertheless was able to accommodate me immediately, which, after a 13 hour flight, was most welcome. The location is fantastic, within walking distance of the main departure halls, and it is very convenient to take meals at the numerous restaurant options at the airport.

    Short Walk from hotel to terminal ”

    Stayed for 1 night as we had early morning flight. I thought it was perfectly fine although my husband thought the bed was uncomfortable. The air conditioning was poor so the room was quite warm during the night. I am a light sleeper and was worried about being woken by other guests during the night but there was no door banging and no noise from the corridor. Easy to find from the main highway. The hotel is very large and there are no signs for reception from the bedroom so take care not to get lost on the way out in the morning !! Very clean rooms.

    In respect of price, this was our best option at the OR Tambo International Airport. Adding the splendid service by their staff, overall quality and cleanliness of the facilities and the value for money, this hotel deserves a full score.

    Exceptional”

    The overall stay was good. The room wasn't big, but it was enough for two people with not many luggages. However, the toilet was relatively large. There were all kinds of amenities, the view from the window was also great too. The location was absolutely perfect as the hotel was located near to the JNB airport, which required only ~10mins to walk. One possible disadvantage is that the hotel only has three levels occupying a large area, so each level accomodates many rooms. It took me ~3mins to walk from the lift to my own room, so if your room is located at the end of the ail, it may take you ~7mins. And you cannot see the surrounding environment from a high height. But it in fact is not a big problem. There are two reasons why i gave a lower rating to staff. First of all, the staff wasn't too polite when i checked in. She kind of yelled at me for my passport with a rude tone. What had pissed me off more was the staff in the hotel restaurant. 45mins after we ordered, the food still had not yet arrived. We noticed that the staff who served us was in the resting room, and other staff was chit-chatting. At last, we got our food after an hour, with the staff not admitting that we had waited for an hour that much. This might be understandable, but i don't think these should be the services provided. Anyway, i will recommend to hotel to others, but you may just need to eat outside.

    A smart choice”

    I could've found a cheaper hotel in Johannesburg, but then I'd have needed to pay for a cab out to Oliver Tambo. Excellent to be able to walk to the check-in desk without having to wait for a shuttle or without having to try to forecast traffic jams. Also liked the fact that I could do last minute gift and snack shopping in the airport mall. I didn't use the hotel restaurant (breakfast in the Mugg and Bean with a view in the Transit lounge instead). The one thing the room lacked was a fridge., but the reception desk girls put my stuff in the kitchen fridge.
