We ordered an extra bed before arrival, and when we got there, they didn't have one, therefore I had to sleep on the floor.

Stayed: December 2011, travelled with family

The general standards in this airport hotel are high and represent great value for money for a 3 STAR establishment. Reception staff let the side down somewhat with check-in and out a bit chaotic with no clear order in which guests are served and pretty much impersonal to boot. The rooms are well appointed but in-house movies would be a nice. Located within the airport precincts, it is hugely convenient for quick stop-overs and transit flights with all airport shops and restaurants within walking distance.

We stayed here only for one night due to British Airways causing us to miss our connecting flight with a very lengthy delay. To be honest we weren't expecting too much but we were pleasantly surprised. The staff in all areas were efficient, polite and helpful. The hotel had good size clean rooms with nice large bathrooms - with both a walk in shower and a bath. The hotel also had a nice bar/dining area.

The reason I have titled this review as "undersells" is that the staff tell you that they do not have a restaurant for evening meals and in the hotel rooms there is a leaflet advertising a number of outside restaurants/take away meal services which can be delivered to your room, when in fact there is a perfectly good menu available at the hotel restaurant! We ate there in the evening and the food was very good and reasonably priced. Drinks were priced at about 20-26 ZAR. The breakfast, which was included, was plentiful ranging from cereals and fruit through to bacon, sausage, omelettes, tea, coffee, fruit juices etc.

Internet access available at a cost of approx 145 ZAR for 24 hours.

All in all if you are stopping overnight would recommend here for good value for money and within five mins walk, all under cover, from the airport. Parking is available too.

It was a good tip about a good hotel at the airport where you can stay for a transit flight situation. very good installations and if you want you can get a train directly to Nelson Mandela Square just about some walk from the hotel to the terminal at the airport.

Room Tip: No suggestions. they seemed to be all good.Maybe you could ask for some view of the internal garden...

This was a surprise package, I was expecting 3 star basic airport hotel, and found a quality hotel experienced. I have stayed twice at City Lodge and both times I was very pleased. Awesome value for money, with good internet, richly decorated rooms and a breakfast that is of high quality. This is the hotel to stay overnight in at OR Tambo airport or if visiting JBurg on business. Thanks team..
