Johannesburg Airport Hotels - Any Suggestions?

Hi,

In planning a safari, most cases my family and I will travel through Johannesburg.

I came across this web post wildsafariafrica.com/category/south-africa/

It mentions the Safari Club, Intercontinental, and the Airport Grand Hotel.

Has anyone stayed at these hotels? Are they of good quality?

Thanks

I have not stayed at any of them.I do know that the Intercontinental is very close,it is attached to the airport

I would think that translates to expensive

On my prior 3 trips I have always had an overnight before flying out

I have stayed at the Peermont Metcourt which is the cheapest of the 3 hotels run by that company There is a free shuttle and it is about a 5 minute drive

A substantial breakfast is included and if you get in early you can walk through the Peermont suites (it is across from the hotel I am talking about) to the food court at Emperors palace where there is a wide choice of dining options

I have heard about Safari club, not bad

Airport lodge is a budget option, about 100m from the airport

We stayed at the Intercontinental for transfer purposes and it was fine. As others have said it's right at the airport so no transfer hassles. We ate two meals there and again they were quite satisfactory. We would stay there again should a similar situation arise.

Agree with CIVUH..

The new City Lodge is right inside the airport. Comfortable and excellent, new facilities. Just a few metres further from the terminals than the Intercontinental - but less than half the price - R689pps!

Stayed there for a company meeting a few weeks ago.
