I had booked this hotel for one night to fly the next day to Botswana. Picked up by the shuttel bus from the hotel which runs 2 times per hour. For a stopover is a good hotel, about 10 minutes drive to the airport. For a longer stay to visit Johannesburg, I would recommend a hotel in a more pleasant...

This is an ok hotel for the night. The hotel is on the flight route to the airport so every other minute an airplane flies over very low, making a lot of noise. The beds are small but comfortable. The breakfast is good with a lot of choices and fresh baked eggs on request. The restaurant is really nice though....

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel and for your constructive comments. It is true that we are directly in the flight path of aircraft landing at OR Tambo and aim to rectify the noise factor during the course of 2014, by insulating all the bedrooms. We trust that we can look forward to welcoming you back...

Stayed for 1 night only for flight connections. The hotel is perfect in every way but for the aircraft noise. Great room, breakfast, staff, internet and pick up service. The aircraft noise was the only downside to this stay. Double glazing on the windows would make such a difference. Would stay there again if noise was reduced.

Thank you so much for taking the time to pass on your comments about the hotel. Regrettably, the hotel is directly in the flight path, which is a huge problem and we should hopefully be coming up with a solution in the near future. Assuring you of my best attention at all times.

The room is small but it is clean. 10 minutes away from the airport. Great room service. Really good breakfast. Free shuttle to/ from airport every hour. Because its close to the airport it can be very noise.
