City Lodge O.R.Tambo Airport Hotel
Ideal Johannesburg Airport stopover hotel
The City Lodge at O.R.Tambo Airport in Johannesburg is exceedingly convenient, efficient and ideal for a 'required' stopover in Johannesburg.
Located just 800m from the International Arrivals Hall the City Lodge is directly behind the Intercontinental Hotel, being the only other hotel within walking distance of the airport (a five star facility at three times the price). Directions to the hotel are well signposted and if you are in doubt, or simply tired, there are always plenty of airport porters on hand whom you can ask (recommended tip R50 - approx A$5).
Each of the 303 clean and comfortable rooms are ensuite, have tea and coffee making facilties (for which you may be thankful when jetlag has you awake at odd hours), a flat screen TV and double-glazed windows. There is an onsite coffee shop / restaurant, several comfortable lounge areas, a bar and the hotel offers 24 hour room service - which includes deliveries from the airport concourse 'fast food' outlets such as Nandos (chicken burgers etc) at a small, additional cost.
Conveniently, the hotel displays live flight departure information in the foyer, the concierge can assist with left luggage facilities and reception
is manned 24 hours for any other requests or queries. There is a fitness room, swimming pool and sundowner deck with lounge chairs.
For an overnight stop, or lengthy transit, the City Lodge at O.R.Tambo provides efficient service and clean and comfortable facilities.
