I’ve stayed in the City Lodge OR Tambo at least twice a year for the last four years and find it the perfect “R&R” spot after a long flight for the US. It’s an easy 5-7 minute walk from arrivals. The rooms are clean, modern and functional, although some may find them a little cozy. (I don’t.) The hotel’s café...

Attached to the Johannesburg airport (level 2 entrance) so perfect for an overnight layover. Comfortable and clean room, fairly quiet, very fast WiFi, friendly staff and a good breakfast buffet. It ticks all the boxes.

The room were excellent, the view good and the breakfast fantastic. The service was also superb. We were tired after a long international flight and just want to sleep, but the hotel changed our minds and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

This should have been an easy place to find after landing at the airport but we had to pay someone to lead us there since the only elevators getting us to the hotel were both broken that evening. The rooms were of good size and well furnished. The breakfast was adequate and they even provide free coffee and muffins in...

Since Johannasburg is such a big hub,There are many travellers needing a convenient layover. After my trip advisor search, I found that City Lodge was the least expensive convenient place. It is a standard, well- kept hotel, right at the airport above parking lot 2. All one has to do is follow the signs to parking 2 and go to...

This hotel is ON the airport property so it doesn't get better in terms of convenience...grab your luggage and just walk to the hotel. The staff was so very nice and the rooms equipped with everything needed. The breakfast buffet was included and so good. I will definitely stay there vs. renting a car or spending money on a taxi...

Have now stayed at this hotel several times when needing a place for one night at the Johannesburg airport. At around $100, it's considerably less than the Intercontinental. Not nearly as nice as the Intercontinental. But sufficient for a quick stay when all you need is a clean bed and a shower. Easy walking access to and from the airport....
