I was on a business trip and had to overnight in Johannesburg SA so I stayed at the airport location. It was perfect easy to find just across from where international arrivals depart the airport. The room was larger than I expected for an airport hotel and very quiet. I had free internet access and ordered room service for my... More

Like many we chose this hotel for convenience - it is such a bonus it is such a good hotel.

We always stay at this hotel when passing through Johannesburg because of its very convenient location within yards of the airport terminals. The rooms are nicely appointed as well as comfortable and we have found the service in general to be good with the front desk in particular being excellent. We will no doubt return!
