Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel is well located for quick access to the airport and the rooms are comfortable and well maintained to meet my expectations. Breakfast is not included but it was very comprehensive, Although the hotel is in walking distance from the airport, I found the signage confusing. Management needs to monitor the non-smoking floor as it did smell of smoke

This is an airport hotel so if you are looking for nuance and charm then look elsewhere. I chose it because it was much cheaper than the alternatives near the airport and I was pleasantly surprised. The reason I gave it full marks was value for money rather than overall excellence. The hotel is efficient and functional. The standard room...

Was impressed with the service and friendly staff. Room was neat and clean. Best of all is the closeness to the airport as I stayed there so as to be able to catch an international flight the following morning. No hassle or stress making sure I was on time. just a short walk away.

In walking distance from the airport, very convenient if you travel early in the morning or late at night. It is also save to get to the hotel by foot. The serves is really good and the food great and affordable.

Great hotel, but the check in reservation desk tried to shake us down for and additional $370. I reserved and prepaid our room using Travelocity at a rate of $130 US, the published rate. We got there and they charged us $500 and said that Travelocity rates were not their rates. I would strongly suggest that you print your third...

We've spent our first night in South Africa in this friendly and very well located hotel. As we arrived at 2200hrs in Johannesburg, this hotel was a perfect choice to get some rest after a long day's flight. You walk from the terminal straight into the hotel. As it was raining cats and dogs the night of our arrival, it...
