Good transition between points

Nice to return to Tambo, but was too sick to enjoy the splendid breakfast buffet.

very convenient stop over in JNB airport

Great hotel within easy access from the international arrivals. A short and safe 5 min inside only walk from the terminal. Hotel staff is very friendly and the breakfast buffet was outstanding.

City Lodge OR Tambo review

It was convenient for us to stay right at the airport as we were in transit from Namibia to Botswana. The hotel is large and very busy, a bit of a shock after 2 weeks in remote lodges.

Perfect Place to Rest

After eleven days, we must admit to being slightly fatigued and the City Lodge fit our needs perfectly. Convenient, clean, quiet, it was a good place to rest before our flight home. For a reasonable fee, we were allowed to stay in our room until 6 PM.

The restaurant was good, the service friendly. The only downside is that we were headed home instead of back to Botswana!!

City Lodge OR Tambo review

It was OK overall but we found the room rather small. The bathroom was nice and the whole place clean.

We decided to stay at the Intercontinental Hotel on the last day of our African trip.

The Perfect Place to Stay Overnight at the Ai

It is an easy 10 minute walk from City Lodge to the main terminal at OR Tambo. It is a reasonably priced alternative to the Intercontinental Hotel at the airport which is twice as expensive.

The rooms are comfortable and all the necessary amenities although they aren't particularly large. The staff is efficient and polite, but not especially friendly. I have to say that the breakfast buffet was outstanding and I was amazed at wide range of items available. Furthermore, everything was very fresh and the quality was excellent.

Yes It is an ideal place to stay if you have a flight the next day from Johannesburg.
