Hello, the Airport Grand Hotel is close to the airport, and they have a shuttle as well. Very nice, not 5 star, but upmarket and highly recommended.

The Intercontinental is right across the road from the terminal, about 50 metres.

The city Lodge is above the car parkade, about 150 metres.

The Southern Sun is about 600 metres from the terminal, you will need to use a shuttle.

The Emperor's Palace complex ( 4 hotels) is 5 minutes away by road. You will need to use their shuttle

We stayed at the Radisson Blu, you call them when you arrive at the central station from the airport and they pick you up with the free shuttle bus and they also take you back to the station on your departure, we enjoyed staing there as it's only a few minutes walk to the shopping mall.

5. Re: airport hotel

We have to do two overnights near the airport in May. First time we are staying at the Safari Club and the last night on our way out we are staying at the D'oreale Grande (part of the Emporer's Palace complex). Not that we are much into Casinos, but thought it might just be an interesting place to stay after doing safaris, and it would give us somewhere to walk around to fill in time before heading back to the airport. Both places provide free airport shuttle. The Intercontinental Hotel looks nice but was much more than we wanted to spend.

Radisson Blu is not close to the airport, it is in Sandton, and one will have to use the Gautrain to get there.

The Gautrain stops running after 8:30 in the evening. This may be a factor because HappyholsAust said they are leaving late evening.
