Southern Sun O.R Tambo International Hotel
Ranked #8 of 27 Hotels in Kempton Park
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Excellent accommodation, courteous staff and value for money. We arrived in Joburg late from Hong Kong and wanted a break before heading to Port Elizabeth. The hotel transport pulled up as we exited and we were met by a jovial driver who whizzed us around to the hotel, a 5-minute drive away. Check-in was efficient and we appreciated the welcome drink before heading to our room. We ordered room service and our burgers were delicious. Checked out at 5am the following morning. Everything smooth. We'll be back!

We stayed for one night only arriving late after exhausting flights and were very pleased with the rooms, the reception and the breakfast (somewhat pricey but well served, tasty and comprehensive) . The bar was open late which was appreciated. It was quick and easy to get to from the airport on the hotel shuttle when we arrived and to go back to the airport to pick up rental vehicle the following morning.

Super hotel, clean, modern, wifi, gym is good, salad bar is excellent, service is professional. A great place to stay in between flights! We've stayed there several times and it's consistently professional and easy checkin and out. Free shuttle to and from airport.

After a long flight, this is a good hotel to stay during your first night in SA. It is located near the airport, but nevertheless they have a frequent and free shuttle bus to get you there. The hotel is quite comfortable with good rooms and no airport noise inside. They have a great breakfast buffet. Staff is attentive and kind.

The hotel is accessible via a short shuttle bus which worked well. For the price I guess you cannot expect too much and all services and rooms are calibrated to this standard. The reception is reasonably polity for being a hospitality associate in Jo'burg and slightly beats the bad receptions that seems to permeate the airport employees. There should be a separate training program for the airport but that is for another day. The room was small but OK for a single occupancy. Wifi is free up to 350mb which is OK for emails and a short stop. Breakfast was also adequate for the price paid. In European terms I would put it between a 2 or 4 start hotel.

Room Tip: Get a room far away from the elevators to avoid noise in the hallways.

I always stay at this hotel when I need to be close to the airport in Jo'burg. The rooms are comfortable, the staff is always friendly and the restaurant is better than you would expect for an airport hotel. I love the wine and cheese happy hour each night and will return to this hotel whenever I need a room close to the airport.

Room Tip: I prefer the rooms with the showers and no bath tubs. They are a little newer.
