This hotel is just a short walk from the baggage claim area at JNB. After a long flight from the US, getting to the hotel quickly was highly convenient. Check in was swift and the rooms are nice and comfortable. I rated this a 4 out of 5 because the hotel required us to get two separate rooms for my...

An ideal place to lay ones head overnight between flights. Comfortable. Relatively quiet. Adequate evening meal, good breakfast. I have stayed here three times and look forward to the stopover between flights. It is good not to have to leave the airport to be able to make an easy morning start back through check in. Front desk efficient as one...

Located walking distance from the terminal, the City Lodge is the perfect place for either a long layover or an early flight. The rooms are spacious and clean, containing the basic amenities. There is a gym which is well stocked if you feel the need for some cardio exercises. Staff are friendly and attentive. All this for such a reasonable...

With just a walk distance to the airport, this hotel is excellent for business and lay over. Friendly staff, clean rooms, quiet environment makes it perfect for rest. Ensure breakfast is included when you book a room otherwise it will be an additional charge on your final bill. Excellent wifi signal everywhere in the hotel. Food is also good at...

I'm in JHB for business every 2nd week. I like staying here because it's clean with friendly staff. Small gym and pool. Neat rooms with choice within room service menu. Restaurant is comfortable with proactive staff.

I stay here often if I am on a stop over. Especially if I have a very early flight. I can roll out of my bed and drag my suitcase straight into the aircraft. Absolute Bliss for Me. A bit pricey though just for a few hours of sleep.

We stayed here only 1 night after flying from US. Got in about 4:00pm and left next am about 8. So, our stay was short. It was great though.

I would leave zero stars if that were possible. Terrible customer service. Hotel cancelled a soul winning marathon and I was informed via Facebook!!! They have kept the churches $800 deposit! Hotel hates Christians and can't be bothered to cancel via phone or email. Avoid like the plague. I have no reason to stay there now.
