“Exceptional Service”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

Regularly overnighting in Johannesburg close to OR Tambo, OneWorld stands out as the best accommodation I have stayed at. They go out of their way for their guests. The staff is professional and warm and you get a sense that they care about what they are doing. The rooms are large with very high ceilings and clean and the price is excellent. Driving to the airport takes on average seven minutes. However, if you do not have a car, the shuttle service to and from the airport is free, on time and available when you need it. On my last visit, I requested a warm room in the bone-chilling Johannesburg winter and waiting for me was a piping hot electric blanket. Such attention to guests is rare indeed. Thank you to Marieanne, John and OneWorld.

This hotel is very close to the airport and was perfect for our brief overnight stay enroute to another destination - the rooms were huge and the hotel staff were very friendly and attentive. They even prepared us sandwiches as the restaurant had already closed by the time we arrived! The rooms are perfect for a family. The shuttle service to and from the airport is very convenient.

Very close to JNB, friendly staff, clean, free wifi and an included a hot breakfast. Awesome value. I think they will pick you up at the airport, but we had rented a car, so Im not certain.

Staff was over the top helpful.

We felt safe here, and I will use again.

We stumbled across this place by accident after being referred to them by Aero Guest Lodge. Two things stood out to us: (1) excellent service, and (2) amazing rooms.

Godfrey promptly met us at the airport (JNB) and provided a free, five-minute shuttle ride to the hotel. John helped us check into our rooms, then took us to a nearby restaurant where we ordered dinner. We found much in common with John and considered him a friend by the end of our stay. Both gentlemen were remarkably friendly and professional. This hotel has just a few rooms, so we reveled in the highly personalized service.

Our room was huge. It had a 12-14 ft cathedral ceiling and was probably 500-600 sq ft. It was nicely furnished and included a spacious tiled bathroom. I particularly appreciated the heated bed.

The internet access worked well, and breakfast was fine. The hotel is conveniently close to the airport. It's not an ideal launching point for a walking tour of town. But, restaurants and a mall are just a two-minute drive away. The hotel staff graciously agreed to store two of my bags at the hotel during my one-week excursion to Namibia. The bags were stored securely in the hotel safe and retrieved upon my return.

Overall, this hotel was a delightful surprise and an excellent value.
