This hotel is so conveniently located within the airport, making it the perfect spot for an overnight before a super early morning flight or between a late arriving international flight and an early morning next day connection, as in my case. Accessed within the airport building itself, it was well sign-posted and was a brisk 5 minute walk. Note that you do need to navigate up several escalators so if you are pushing a luggage cart you will need to pay extra attention for lift signage. The hotel was busy during my stay and check in took a long time (25 min wait). The room was comfortable and clean. The main disappointment was the restaurant. While the staff were literally running off their feet it took 50 minutes to receive my food, and tables around me had a similar wait. This seems excessive given that the menu is very basic casual dining fare (pizza, burgers sandwiches). I also witnessed most guests getting their own drinks from the bar, or simply walking out as there was very slow and inconsistent table service. Overall it was not a hospitable experience at all. Very disappointing given how lovely aesthetically the space is and how convenient it is.

Very good for a stay pver

Convenient to the airport. Great restaurant. Excellent breakfast. Wonderful welcome to South Africa.

Rooms were excellent Dining was excellent The one problem I had was when arriving at hotel, there was a long line of people waiting that were from an airline (delayed flight maybe..). I had a reservation. There was nothing saying that I could go to the front of line so i waited like everyone else. When I got to the desk I was told I should have said I had a reservation and I would have been taken first. No… they should have posted something that said if you have a reservation let someone know. Bad communication from them to those of us who paid upfront. Do better.

Attached to airport, so super convenient for our overnight layover. Spacious rooms, deep tubs, warm & welcoming, modern styling & decor. All of that for an unbelievably low price.

It’s convenient within walking distance to the airport. Also their Covid testing facility is an excellent initiative.

This Hotel is always spotless and all their staff members are courteous and helpful.
