This hotel is incredibly convenient but I'm afraid that is the best thing about it. I arrived from a 10 hour flight and had requested an early check in. I know they are not guaranteed but I was kept waiting for two hours with no information as to when a room would be available. This is ridiculous for such a...

Great hotel adjoining the airport. The hotel had great facilities including a good restaurant, swimming pool and gym. Staff are very friendly and efficient and the manager was very accommodating when a problem arose. I highly recommend this hotel

The only advantage of this hotel is that the airport terminals are in walking distance. Ideal for early morning departures. The decor is typically City Lodge. However I would only stay there because of the close proximity to the airport. The Barbara Road City Lodge is more convenient for visiting restaurants and is simpler to access.

Visited Randburg Road Lodge and then OR Tambo City Lodge within a week. Stayed at these and other venues in the group on numerous occasions and notice a common problem. I have booked using many different online agencies (e.g. Agoda; Safari.com; Hotels. com; Bookings.com etc) and every time without fail (including this time), upon my arrival the check-in staff claim...

Given that it is on the airport and you can walk to it the value for money is excellent. Rooms are comfortable and the hotel is clean and modern. Only a couple of downsides. It is quite difficult to find as you need to head for the car park and walk a distance to the end of the walkway where...

Arrived here on an early morning flight at 6 am and was hoping for an early check in. I approached the front desk and there was this fantastic trainee ( pls see attached picture) who mobilised Housekeeping to provide 3 clean rooms for us at 9 am. What an exceptional effort! The room was adequate and most importantly, clean. In...

I landed late in the day and needed a place to crash for the night. It's close to the airport, reasonable, and gives you the basics you need. Breakfast is good. The biggest downside is that the signage isn't as good as I'd like. Although it is close, it is possible to get a little turned around.

City Lodge Oliver Tambo is a convenient place for those who arrive late at or have to depart early from the airport. It is a 5 minutes walk between the terminal and the hotel lobby. The rooms are spacious and quiet although some noise from the runways or the highways may be heard. Breakfast is very good.

The staff at the reception were very welcoming and friendly when we arrived. Our room was very nice and comfortable. A lovely spread for breakfast. Will definitely stay there again. It is only a short distance to walk to check in for your departure at O.R Tambo and most convenient if you have an early morning flight.
