"City Lodge OR Tambo"

1 night Arrived 18 Jun 2017
"The City Lodge OR Tambo was a very convenient stop over for the family and I as we were out to Zambia, Africa early the next morning.

The hotel is located within the airport property requiring only a short walk from baggage claim. The rooms are comfortable and the service at the hotel restaurant and food are quite good.

We managed to recover a bit from our 15 hour inbound flight from Atlanta, Georgia." See all these reviews: 9n in Zambia; 1n in South Africa

"Not restful stop over"

1 night Arrived 15 Jun 2017
"The room had no double glazing, as it was at the back facing all the roads it was very noisy, not recommended as a room for a rest after a full days flying!

The breakfast was very good, and the service was good." See all these reviews: 8n in Namibia; 2n in Botswana; 2n in Zambia; 1n in South Africa

"Convenient, only 5 mins walk from terminal"

1 night Arrived 14 May 2017
"Easy to find with your instructions. A bit disappointed with the noise levels as double gazing probably not really up to current standards for an on-airport hotel. Perhaps the Intercontinental may be better in future? The menu was not extensive when we only wanted a snack, when it arrived - it was cold. As we only had a one-night stopover here, it was not not a real problem. Convenient." See all these reviews: 12n in Botswana; 4n in Namibia; 1n in South Africa

Amazingly convenient. Clean and comfortable. Decent food generally, and a very good breakfast buffet.

A more-than-adequate way station amid wherever your travels in southern Africa may take you." See all these reviews: 12n in Rwanda; 7n in Mozambique; 1n in South Africa
