"City Lodge OR Tambo review"

1 night Arrived 8 Oct 2015
"For a brief overnight stay this was just fine and fairly easy to get to. The room was comfortable but a tad stuffy.

The convenience made up for any drawbacks." See all these reviews: 6n in Botswana; 1n in South Africa

"Good for those with little time in Joburg"

1 night Arrived 11 Nov 2014
"City Lodge is handy since it is a short walk from the main areas of OR Tambo airport.
Rooms are well equiped and clean, although not always quiet.
The restaurant is excelent. Breakfast is lush and the menu for lunch/dinner has innovative, healthy and tasty options.
Reception is efficient, but not really friendly." See all these reviews: 6n in Mozambique; 2n in South Africa
