While not the most luxurious hotel ever, it’s definitely one of the most convenient airport hotels, ever. It is a simple (though a tad confusing) walk from baggage claim, so very handy for quick stays in Jo-burg between flights or transfers. The rooms are fairly large and clean, and very quiet, especially considering they are next to a major airport....

After a very long flight from the sates (21+ hours due to a medical emergency that required us to turn around and land at JFK) we arrived at the Jo'berg airport around midnight and found the hotel with no problem. It's about a 15min walk from baggage claim and as 3 women traveling together we never felt unsafe. You don't...

We stayed at the City Lodge for one night as we had a flight the following afternoon. The main pro of City Lodge is the location. You don't need to even leave the airport. Just follow the signs after baggage and the elevators to the hotel will appear. Extremely convenient. Don't expect too much more from this property. The front...

The location (a short walk from arrivals with no need to leave the airport building) was very convenient for our night-time arrival and early morning departure. The room was quiet and comfortable and we managed despite the short time to get some decent sleep. I highly recommend it when you're looking for an airport hotel.

This hotel is connected to the airport, and therefore no need to go outside. You can walk from the arrival gates. It is very nice, clean and has a good restaurant. Has wifi. It is well marked and you do not need anyone to "escort" you - although many will offer and want a big tip.

This hotel is at the airport, and a short few hundred meters walk to the boarding gates. This is a large hotel, but looong hallways and cater for all travelers looking for a quick nap. Unfortunately, they capitalize on their location, and accommodation prices are expensive, for very little advantage. Do yourself a favour and do not eat in the...

Reviewed 14 March 2017

its a big hotel on the airport premises so is ideal for travelers who arrive late in the evening. The reception is OK, also the room is good and clean.But the hotel misses character, there is no spirit in it. The staff is friendly and the breakfast buffet is good. all in all a good hotel for 1 night stay.

Conveniently located next to the airport terminal building, you walk there by following the signs to Parking Level 2, then carry straight on as far as you can go, and you’ll come the lift up to the hotel lobby.
