We knew we were getting in late, as our flight was expected to arrive at 9.15 pm. I mentioned this when I did the booking. I later sent the hotel an e-mail to enquire if there was any open places nearby to get a quick meal late at night. The reply I got was that there was a snack machine,...

This is a cut above most hotels located adjacent to (or within) an airport property. Common areas are attractive, and the rooms are clean, spacious and well appointed. The dinner menu is varied enough to satisfy most palates, and the breakfast buffet offers both cold and hot options. Staff was very friendly, and the easy access to ORT departure halls...

This is a convenient overnight venue within a short walking distance from arrival and departure halls of ORT. The dinner restaurant is average at best. Probably as it has a captive client. Rooms are sufficient

The City Lodge Group is one of my two favorite hotel groups in South Africa. I particularly like staying at the City Lodge OR Tambo as it is a really good proximity to most the highways and you can easily head out anywhere from here. The staff here is completely awesome, and the rooms are sooooo super comfortable. I always...

Walking distance from the airport. Don't even have to go outside. Rooms are smaller but big enough for a layover. Bar, Restaurant and common areas are very spacious. Staff is friendly. Say Hi to Stanley at the bar. Food was good, beer was cold, wine was great and inexpensive. Enjoy your Stay!

A purely functional hotel experience. No hotel shop. WiFi in the rooms. Walkkable from the airport with baggage. Much prefer the Intercon which is even closer to the airport ... but there is a big price difference for the experience. There is a decent restaurant. The front desk are moderately helpful.

Have been through this airport many times and finally found a great hotel to stay at between flights. Easy 5 min walk from baggage area to the hotel located above a parking garage. Easy, friendly check-in on both days used. Clean, quiet room with excellent breakfast included
