I was pleasantly surprised - nice bedding, great shower. Caters for the airport traveller - free shuttle to and from the airport every 30 minutes (or on demand). Late check in (food available in until 23h00), provides breakfast box in case of early departure.

This is according to me the best option if you are looking for a place to stay at he airport. I have stayed at different hotels at the airport and I keep coming back to this one.

Staff is extremely friendly and efficient. The rooms are spacious, clean and have everything you need. I ordered room service this time round and it was delivered in no time. I got a call later on to find out if I enjoyed the meal. This is going that extra mile which make a lasting impression.

The shuttle service is available 24 hours and you do not have to worry about being on time for your flight.

I shopped around for reasonably-priced stay not too far from OR Tambo airport, not a lot of affordable options around the airport. The room was big enough, breakfast was excellent as always, staff was friendly as always. Enjoyed a good dinner at Rosy O'Gradys. Sadly such stays are becoming more expensive for normal RSA residents.

even locals enjoy this place! In all seriousness - this is a great place if you are staying there for just one or 2 nights! The breakfast is a breakfast for KINGS AND QUEENS - seriously amazing!! Extremely friendly staff, long opening hours, lovely space and seriously great choices! They have a great shuttle service available at great rates. If you are just staying there between a layover you can enjoy the ammenities of the hotel or the surroundings - Emperor's Palace is really close by and ALWAYS a great choice to do - for either food or entertainment or both - quite a must see/do! ;)
The hotel itself offers very clean rooms, great service and efficient and very adquat help! Seriously recommended either for business or if you're on vacation. You won't regret it :) I have returned many times after my first experience! :)

Room Tip: any room is great - we had rooms, on all my visits, on the first or second floor, and it was just pe...

i received the best and friendliest service from the staff. the food was to die for. the only down side to the hotel is the lack of gymasium. some of us book into hotels for a full week and need to stay in shape whilst away from home.
