Five of us stayed at this hotel on a recent visit to jet park. The hotel rooms are very comfortable. Nice large beds, well insulated from noise. Goody was good in the restaurant and the breakfast table has a nice selection both cooked and continental food.

Obviously the proximity to the airport is the biggest drawing card here. Reception was ok, if taking their time to assist pax with check-in - the process just takes too long. Rooms and hotel are up to expectation - clean, functional, good bedding and the inside looking like most other CL hotels I've stayed in. What was awkward is the...

I've stayed at the City Lodge numerous times and it is my preferred OR Tambo hotel. Staff is pleasant and efficient and the restaurant is quite good. Rooms are excellent for business use. Best is that you can walk directly from the airline gate to the hotel.

This Hotel makes travelling just that little more convenient being situated in close proximity of the Airport. Travelling from Cape Town to connect to flights out of Johannesburg makes this my choice of stay, by flying out there the day before, spending the evening and connect the following morning as oppose to early morning red eye flights! And you are...

This is an average airport hotel, situated within close proximity to the airport gates. You can walk through the airport to get to the hotel, so no need to catch a cab. The breakfast at the hotel is OK. Wifi is available in the comfortable lounge downstairs. Rooms are basic.

We have stayed at this City Lodge on several occasions usually the night before flying out. It's very convenient, clean and efficient service at reception. I like the fact that it has an ice machine, something usually lacking at most hotels. The rooms are basic, though nicely furnished, and small. It comes with free wi-fi in the room, a flat...
