Hotels near Jo-burg airport

I lived in Jo-burg for many years but never stayed in a hotel near the airport. Can anybody advise me on a good, reasonably priced hotel (not 5 star) that also offers a shuttle service to/from the airport.

Thanks

Werner

Werner,

You and I often trade opinions on the other forums quite often. I looked you up and see that you are a professor at UNC local college? I used to teach math at Valdosta State University in Georgia.

I use the Metcourt Laurel quite often. Free shuttle every fifteen minutes behind the Intercontinental. It should be aboue ZAR 1150 per night. Four minutes from the airport.

Peermont the company that runs the Metcourt Laurel and the whole casino complex at the airport, is just opening a new Metcourt there (in addition to the Metcourt Laurel). It has more to offer, including some good rates right now - if those rates work with your dates. It's the 2nd one on this page.

Just to clarify, are all these Metcourt hotels in the same area/complex? We booked the new Metcourt for our two night stay in JNB and I was just wondering if we would be able to easily access all the other Metcourt's facilities/restaurants.

Yes indeed, and the casino, too. Where there is a lavish buffet that - unless it has changed - is a nice fattening experience. There are several restaurants around the complex, in fact.

amy,

there have been a few changes at the compound recently.

-the rollercoaster is gone.

-the italian restaurant closed.

-the metcourt laurel is closing to become suites.

-the mondior concorde is now the peermont mondior.

-if you are at the metcourt, you are likely at the peermont metcourt. the rooms are TINY but adequate and super clean.

all have access to the shops, casinos, and restaurants.
