Please post notices for noise control in the hotel rooms. Seal the cable entries between the rooms, to prevent transmission of noise from other rooms. My assumption is based on the fact that the tvs might be sharing the signal cables hence there could be an opening between the walls.

The hotel is not bad at all they can improve their food menus and service. the accessibility to the airport is a plus and the comfort is what you would expect in a hotel of that calibre. I would recommend this hotel to any business traveller any day.

Hotel is very conveniently located. Rooms are dated though. The toilet was problematic, water stood in the shower cubicle and balcony to the room had water standing after the rain. Needs greater care and attention to these details.

Arrived on friday. Friendly staff. I was shown a room but given a different one. We chose a king size bed because standards suite are small. Breakfast was basic not much halaal options. They had no electricity on Saturday so no hot water. Airport shuttle leaves every half an hour. I didn't enjoy my stay.

The hotel is only about 5 minutes drive from the airport. The rooms are pretty big and comfortable. Only drawback is the 40 ZAR per night parking fee. The restaurant interestingly has some vegetarian options. We got good vegetarian Nachos with cheese and Vegetarian Lasagne at the Restaurant. The complimentary breakfast has a good continental spread. It is a large...

I normally stay in this place when I fly to South Africa from Australia. It's clean, decent, and importantly after a long flight, close to the airport! It's nothing overly special, and perhaps even a bit dated, but it serves a purpose. There's a free shuttle to and from the airport, which makes life easy, and is only a few...

Comfortable and location ideal for business people travelling through the airport in joburg. Staff were very attentive and helpful. Room had aircon and a desk (key for me chasing a deadline). Wifi is not free but available with good reception.
