This was an overnight stay at OR Tambo Airport. On the good side, location is fine - a 5 minute shuttle operating every 30 minutes, the hot and cold breakfast buffet was very good, and the bed was clean and comfortable. On the downside, the room was not properly prepared, including no coffee/ tea supplies and a previously used water bottle. Worst was the toilet didn’t flush right and was clogged. Also, the shower drained very slowly. Lastly, check in took about 30 minutes. Sorry to say, but I will not return.

Easy airport-hotel shuttle service. Very friendly and helpful staff - concierge, check-in and hospitality. It’s not walking distance near anything other than the airport but was a good layover hotel with a pool!

Hotel is old but being updated. Very nice pool and excellent gym. Walking to airport to access service not an option due to lack of sidewalks, but free shuttle available.

It's the best to expect from an airport hotel. Actually has a small enclosed garden/pool area. Would be nice if it was bigger.

Good stay but hotel is a bit dated especially inside the rooms. Air conditioner unit is a wall unit so you can’t control the temperature.
