The hotel let us use their facilities during a day transit in OR Tambo. We had drinks/food in the pool area, which is really lovely, and we were well rested by the time we got back to the airport (literally a 10 mins walk from the hotel). Service was great. Highly recommend!

Stayed here for a stopover flight onwards. The hotel is nothing special and, like many airport hotels, built purely functional. The check in staff were really friendly. Even though the hotel is at the airport and right next to the Gautrain the rooms are very quiet.

This was a very good safe and convenient solution, since we had a very early morning flight. The food on offer was reasonably price and good and since it was served until 10 pm it gave a good dinner option. Very clean and comfortable.

I made the mistake of making a reservation at the Protea Hotel in the airport without realizing that I would not be able to pick up my luggage that night! At the last minute I had to look for another alternative. The staff at the airport recommended the city lodge as an economical alternative and it really was. It was...

Good place when you arrive late or leave early from Joburg Airport. Nice, clean rooms, decent enough food, and the kids will love the little pool. Not exactly a holiday hotel since nobody but Tom Hanks would spend lots of time at an airport. But great value for money for one night.

After traveling for almost two days, it was wonderful to walk just steps away from OR Tambo Airport into the City Lodge Hotel. Not at all impressive from the outside, it turned out to be quite comfortable and quiet once inside. Even though we arrived early in the morning, the Reception Desk staff was kind enough to let into our...

Food here is delicious. It's served until 10pm and can be charged to your room or paid directly. The service was great also. Portions are nice, not too big. All options with good taste. The room is also good. Quiet and clean.

Rooms all good and breakfast and bar amenities are great... pity about the check in staff.... hardly literate, nothing was done to remedy a booking mixup (which was booked 3 months in advance) Manager on duty had a "above my paygrade attitude" All in all not a pleasant experience when you have been travelling for 24hrs...

Stayed twice during stopovers to Mozambique from Europe. Convenient and comfortable. Easy access from the terminal, although the signs can take a while to find, but you can get an ORTambo luggage trolley from arrivals all the way to the hotel lift as they work on the escalators - made 4 cases very easy to get through the airport.
