An excellent 3-star hotel close to Johannesburg Airport. The hotel is equipped with a small mini gym, a swimming pool, and a meeting room. Vending machines stocking cigarettes, snacks and cold beverages, fax and photocopy services available, same-day laundry and dry cleaning (weekdays only). (AHJ1008)) Similar in design to many Citylodge hotels, the property is painted brown and just 2 storeys tall. Situated next to the R24 airport freeway, the hotel is easily accessible to all the main motorways and Johannesburg International Airport is just 4 km away. The Isando Junction is across the road, which has a variety of restaurants at which to dine.

Transfer point

Solid clean hotel. Just make sure you know which one you are in, there is one attached to airport and this one on sandvale rd (just 2km or about a 10min shuttle ride away) by the airport.

This is NOT City Lodge at Airport

Our stay at the City Lodge was fine - hotel is adequate and clean, but it was a disappointment to not be at the City Lodge at the Airport, as the description stated. The City Lodge there is run by a different managment team so they could not honor our pre-paid res. The beauty of the City Lodge at OR Tambo Airport is you can walk there in 5 mins from Terminal, and they are even kind enough to store your bags as you travel on safari and then return to Jberg. This hotel was a 10-15 mins taxi ride.

decent, convenient hotel near airport

Good place to spend the evening on our way out of Jo'burg. Shuttle to hotel was fairly prompt, and the drive to the hotel was short. Pleasant hotel staff, clean place, very nice and comfortable rooms.

No reasonably priced hotels at the Jo'burg airport, but this one was easily accessible via shuttle.

City Lodge - Jnb International Airport

This hotel is a good choice for a one night stay traveling from the US to other points in Africa as is often needed. The hotel has an airport shuttle (7 min drive) but is not free even though it is advertized as free by the airport information desk. Cost is same as a cab. Having no elevator or "lift" was difficult since we had to carry 3 weeks worth of luggage upstairs ourselves to our room. After a 22 hour set of flights we barely had the energy for this. Hotel itself was nice, food/bar nice also.

Great Place!

I had no idea where the shuttle would be at the airport and didn't have to find it. However, everything else was just great, I wish I could have stayed longer.

An easy answer to an airport stayover

I stayed at City Lodge overnight between connections and had dinner there with some local friends. The food was surprisingly good and the staff friendly. The room was simple but totally adequate. A good value hotel.

Good stopover location and great value

I've been staying at the Airport City Lodge since the 80s and the accommodation and service are consistently good. The staff are professional and clearly well trained. Lately, they provide light meals in the evenings which is great for travellers who do not want to step out to look for a place to eat in the evening. The quality of the food and presentation are very good. Rooms are clean and well appointed and the hospitality tray is a plus when in need of a quiet cup of tea/coffee!

If you're stopping over for more than an overnight there are some great malls in the area.

The good and the bad

When we checked in about 10:30 P.M. we requested a very early wake-up call because of our next flight. That request was written on the palm of a hand of the employee. He was still on duty early the next morning; when questioned about the missing call he looked at his hand and indicated the request had gone no farther. He did give us free transportation to the airport (about $11). Thank goodness I set my alarm clock. Not providing a wakeup call at an airport hotel lowered my higher opinion based on a great hot breakfast.

High quality, low price.

Hotel shuttle was waiting for us at the airport. Check in was efficient and included a free drink. Nice! Our room was clean and spacious. Breakfast was great! Tons of variety including eggs and omelets made to order, fruits, cereals, muffins, etc, etc. Hotel staff helped us with transportation to various activites around the city. We were very pleased.
