Great airport hotel

We enjoyed our time at OR Tambo hotel.

We asked if we could stay an extra half day before our flight and, although, there was an additional charge, they were able to accommodate us.

We also had dinner and breakfast there and both were fine meals, especially breakfast.

City Lodge OR Tambo

It is a more than adequate stopover hotel within walking distance from the airport.

Nice respite after our safari

After spending a week in Botswana on safaris, we flew to Jo'burg for an overnight, before proceeding on to Malawi the next day.

City Lodge was convenient (right in the airport), the rooms were clean and modern, the food in the restaurant was great (especially the morning brunch).

Excellent!

City Lodge OR Tambo review

The City Lodge was easily accessible from the terminal although improved signage on the location would have made the stroll easier.

The room was very clean and functional. Although we only stayed one evening we would have been very comfortable remaining longer.

The staff who we interfaced were excellent - welcoming, accommodating, and attentive. The breakfast buffet was sumptuous, with sufficient variety to accommodate most any dietary need.

short stay at airport hotel

When we arrived the City Lodge front desk, the receptionist told us that we did not have a reservation. Not a good start. She did not appear to be concerned and told us there were no rooms available.

Some 5-10 minutes later, the reservation was miraculously found... after talking to the manager! Its an ok place to spend a night if your in transit and need to spend a night at the airport.

Staff at the breakfast not very helpful.

Convenient for overnighting at Jo'burg

This is a modern hotel in the airport which you can walk to after collecting your baggage.

It is a big airport and a longish walk but we had clear instructions how to find the hotel. You leave your baggage trolly at a lift which takes you to the reception of the hotel. The rooms, breakfast, etc. were up to the standard to be expected in an international airport hotel.

Makes a transit through Jo'burg airport relatively painless.
