"Convenient night at City Lodge OR Tambo"

1 night Arrived 28 Oct 2013
"Located in the airport buildings it saved a lot of hassle not having to leave the airport. But signage to the lift for the hotel was not good from either Terminal, and it was a much longer walk than we had anticipated. The room had all mod cons. good bathroom, no aircraft noise, and was excellent for a brief overnight stay.

A good English breakfast in the morning!

We left some baggage in the basement Left Luggage area of the Airport, but were horrified to find that they ONLY accept cash, not credit or debit cards. Each bag costs ZAR70 per day, so for 7 days we had to pay ZAR 980 IN CASH!! No negotiation!" See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia; 6n in Mozambique; 1n in South Africa
