Located in OR Tambo Airport atop a parking structure. Accessible from the terminal without having to walk outside. Warning the elevator to the lobby will not accommodate luggage carts available in the airport. Excellent soundproofing. A spacious well appointed room. We arrived on a late flight and left on an early morning flight and did not eat at the hotel restaurant. Front desk staff was efficient.

I've stayed at two hotels at Joburg airport. The first was a Protea property where you had to take a 10-15 minute bus ride from the airport. This last trip I stayed at the City Lodge which is located above the parking garages at the airport. Very convenient. Just walk through the airport wit a connecting walkway, take an elevator and you are there. I paid about $120 US for the room as opposed to $300+ at the Intercontinental. The room was spacious, with a large bathroom and big screen TV. The menu selection for lunch and dinner is limited from the menu but they do have a buffet. I used the airport for an overnight stay and then as a layover day room which was $60 US for 6 hours. It was perfect to be able to get cleaned up, take a nap, and then on to your international flight. I highly recommend this property.

Room Tip: There are no rooms with a great view so I wouldn't take this into consideration. It's a room to wear off jet lag and then move on to your next stop.

My group and I arrived from Singapore and enjoyed an excellent breakfast at the City Lodge in a clean and well-organised dining area; the food was fresh and plentiful, and the Management friendly, helpful and professional. A hotel definitely worth considering and conveniently located to OR Tambo.

City lodge is a good place to stay overnight when coming into or leaving Johannesburg. It is clean, secure, and extremely convenient. Easy to find (located just above the parking ramp) and relatively quiet (you don't hear planes taking off or landing). One minor complaint, my room lacked a clock radio/alarm, so I had to depend on a wake up call. Breakfast in the restaurant is very good. Evening dinner menu is limited. Still, a good choice after a long plane trip.

I just spent one night in this hotel but the cordiality, proactivity to help me to sort out a personal situation and great location let me to strongly recommend this hotel. It is my first option when return to Johannesburg.

The rates are compatible (~ ZAR 1,300.00, free Wi-Fi (courtesy 60 MB per day), rooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast are not included (~ ZAR 110,00).

To get 5 stars they should provide unlimited Wi-Fi connectivity. These days this is a must.

Room Tip: The aisle are huge. Ask at the front desk a room next to elevator or stairs.
