Overnighted at the hotel before a very early morning flight the next day. Very convenient location right at the airport - no transport needed. Friendly staff, clean and comfortable room. Unfortunately could not experience the breakfast as the flight was too early. Hope to do that next time. Would definitely choose this option again.

What a fantastic hotel. We decided to stay here due to a late flight arrival. What a great find! You can actually walk to the hotel from the airport as it is connected to the the airport. Check in was very easy. The rooms were really nice and clean. We ate downstairs in their restaurant and the food was great as well as reasonably priced. Service was also excellent. I would definitely stay here again!

The hotel is great, and is very conveniently attached directly to the OR Tambo airport. No shuttle or taxi needed, just the elevator directly to their lobby. They are taking measures due the covid situation, such as a simple health form filled out upon check in. The receptionists at the desk are incredibly polite, and upon checking in I was asked if I needed food or anything to drink before their cafe closed. I stayed in a simple room for 1, which had both a shower and large soaking tub, very nice after a 15+ hour flight. CitiLodge was a very nice place to unwind after the flight and although their breakfast dining area is closed, breakfast can be delivered to your room starting at 6am for an additional charge. Of which is not that much, and the price for my room was very reasonable especially comparing other hotel prices in the US/EU.

My husband and I booked a room for $70 US, a great bargain, to use during a long layover. The food was excellent, and the bartender and server top notch, in the cafe. The room was clean and had the essentials. City Lodge is connected via inside walkway to OR Tambo. It is accessed near/within a car park, making it perfect for flyers. The staff were efficient but not terribly friendly or helpful. One main reason for our booking was to nap and shower during a 12 hour layover. During our stay, there was no water in the entire hotel. No explanations, no discounts, nor alternative options were offered. We checked out at 11 pm without ever getting water for the kettle, for brushing teeth or for the shower. If not for its afforability and easy access, I would have been angry.

I’ve stayed at City Lodge numerous times before and my experience was always pleasant. This month I’ve stayed here twice and I’ve definitely changed my opinion. Both times the aircons weren’t working and it’s winter at the moment so no heating whatsoever, which I now suspect is intentional. Added to that, on both occasions, there wasn’t any hot water coming out from the tap, only ice cold water. When I called reception to ask why there was no hot water, I was told that the pumps at OR Tambo that pump hot water weren’t working, which is hogwash if you ask me! I took an ice cold shower and ended up with a nasty cold. I gave them a chance to redeem themselves after the first time and I got the short end of the stick yet again. Please do better!
