Two times one night we stayed at this hotel. Rooms are very good, so is breakfast (buffet). Not so good that we good take a shower the second time or flush the toilet, but this was due to a water pipe breakdown in the district. They made that up with the supply of bottles of water...

We stayed here only because we had a flight the next day so it was easier to stay at a hotel close by. Although, it's probably not as close as you think it is. I wouldn't recommend anyone staying here for any other reason as it is fairly far away from everything. There is a shopping centre and food within...

Handy enough, this OT airport hotel is a 10 minute shuttle ride (which departs every hour - on the half hour ) from the Terminal A departures hall. A really friendly welcome from the impressive Sifiso Dhlalisa - 'young' but knows how to engage and understands the very essence of great customer service ; an absolute asset ! I asked...

Spent one night at this hotel on my way out of Johannesburg and found it okay. Its a traditional multistory hotel with long hall ways but I liked that - I felt safe and secure. The staff were nice and it was a short walk to restaurants and some shops. The planes fly really low near the hotel, so it...

Stayed here 2 nights for a conference. The rooms are average. The main problem is the noise of the planes, which go right overhead but thankfully don't go the whole night. The service was very friendly & the prices average.

My group stayed here for 2 days. It was about a 15 minute ride from the Airport. The grounds are really beautiful. The rooms are nice and clean. The breakfast is the best. A full buffet with just about everything. The dinner is also good. Really nice upscale hotel. I would stay here again and recommend others. Great staff also.
