Arrived late one night and flight early the next morning so City Lodge @ JNB was appropriate to avoid shuttling to a nearby hotel airport. Getting from the arrivals area to the hotel was easy as the signage was great all the way. Indoor walk all the way to the hotel. Checking in was slow - turns out the computers were slow at least for the overnight I was there and check-out was slow too. The evening reception staff were surly but the housekeeping staff and morning reception staff polite and helpful.
The room was good, in line with expectations for a convenient airport hotel. The toilet flush button would stick and had to be pushed a couple of times to make sure water wouldn't flush incessantly. The shower door wouldn't close properly so shower water would leak onto the bathroom floor. The walk between the room and elevator was very long as the hotel has a large areal footprint. Breakfast was excellent with a wonderful fruit selection and friendly helpful staff. I recommend this hotel for overnight stays at the airport.
