Stayed here due to the airport location which is also conveniently located to the Gautrain. Restaurant service was very good and prices were reasonable. The rooms were clean. ONly downside is that they charge for internet so you have to constantly log in or separately buy internet service-not what you would expect/need for business. Also, my luggage was lost the...

Stayed there for a night for a transfer and again in the round trip and its the best location for that. Nice friendly people and a nice clean room. Not noisy as expected in a airport. Great value for your money

We were delayed for 2 days - 15 + 6 June - in Johannesburg Airport as a result of BA cancelling 2 flights back to London due to electrical problems on our aircraft. As a result we had the pleasure of staying for 2 nights at the City Lodge. This review is more of a thank you to the staff...

My partner and I stayed here for one night at the beginning of August. It is great as a transit hotel as it located at the end of the airport terminal building. In fact it is about a 10 minute walk from the arrivals hall. The room was large and spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was...

Last minute change of plan. Were able to walk through airport to hotel. Clean, comfortable accommodation. Chambermaids always most helpful and porters. Great breakfast. Good nights sleep before sorting out delayed trip next day.

We ended up staying here for two nights thanks to BA cancelling our flight two nights in a row! Faced with a long line of disgruntled passengers at almost midnight the staff worked really quickly to sort out rooms and were extremely professional. The room was clean and spacious with good soundproofing. The breakfast buffet was fabulous!

This hotel isn't to be confused with the City Lodge at O.R. Tambo airport. The latter, because of it's closer proximity to the airport, is more expensive, but it may be worth paying the extra to avoid having to catch a shuttle. In fact that would probably be my only gripe - the hotel charges for its shuttle (R62 pp...

Stayed here when my flight got cancelled. The staff were friendly and relatively helpful... Stayed in a smoking room that smelled too much like smoke (smoking rooms are usually supposed to be well-ventilated and smears should not be able to smell the smoke)! Since it was a hotel pretty much attached to the airport, one would expect that the management...
