location and access
poor internet service no bottled water single towel way over prized
Comfort of bed. Location. Noice free.
Twinbeds facility had bath items for one. Glass shower cabinet too transparent. No teaspoon for teacups. Metal chair had no strong for most weights.
needed transit area hotel for a night, so was perfectly what was needed
Conveniently located before customs
Felt too expensive...one should evaluate going through customs and taking a cheaper hotel
Rooms are clean an cofortable, staff are nice and helpfull.
The comfort of the room
There was no food service in the hotel
Room is good and the location is excellent.
Poor staff. Not so helpful for foreigners, mainly from African countries. They are so unfriendly and not understanding. Also it so expensive for a hotel that does not offer breakfast. Any one expects that by paying over 245 u.s. dollars has it something to eat in the morning.
I travel for work and regularly have an itinerary that puts me into the Jo'burg airport in the evening, flying out the next morning. The hotel is located within the airport so very convenient, allowing me to get extra sleep by avoiding busing to an external hotel and back. The hotel is clean and comfortable, nothing too fancy but certainly acceptable.
staff are too casual ...sometimes slow and dont have great service skills
NO BOTTLE OF WATER IN THE ROOM.HAD TO WALK ALL THE WAY TO DEPARTURE LOUNGE TO BUY ONE. PAID 223$ FOR ONE NIGHT.THINK ITS TOO EXPENSIVE.
Perfect location within Transit area of the Int. Airport Desk of the various Companies available just before the Hotel entrance so to verify the lugguage will follow to Final destination Very nice and confortable room
Location of the Hotel, it's the only option to get some sleep without leaving the airport security area.
The room floor wasn't cleaned since ages! It was quite easy to figure out at least five different footprints (barefooted) on the marble floor in the room - realy ugly!! At least the bed sheets and towels have been changed... .
Room is great Staff very very friendly
Cleanliness of bedding
Very convenient location. Room was quiet.
At check-in staff tried to charge us more than our booking.com rate, first saying it was we were a party of two instead of one and then because we were staying overnight instead of six hours. Staff backed down when confronted with copy of confirmation, but not easily or graciously. Check-in desk understaffed, making check-in process slower than it should have been.
The location and convenience
There was insuffiicent information on how to exit and get to the trafer area, to get the borading pass etc.
No shampoo Staff did not have correct booking details Very expensive
Excellent for transit (no immigration / security lines: ten minutes to my gate)! Very comfortable and good sized room. Everything worked well.
My first room had strong and cold aircon (which you can't control) but they moved me to a more reasonable room. Having moved room, I didn't get my wake-up call!
Convenience of location inside Security
No windows, no bar
The staff was very nice and kind room was beautiful and bed very comfortable
The heater was not working the room was freezing, food was terrible phone was not working properly.
The rooms are indeed spacious and more than adequate for a Transfer area and to catch up on much needed sleep between flights that are a couple of hours apart
I had been lead to believe the rooms are sound-proof, however I was booked into room 341 and a team of builders and their drilling equipment seemed to be right outside my window, too the extent that I was unable to sleep at all. Was a waste of monies for the 6 hrs I had booked for as it was to catch up on sleep..
Room Clean and comfortable Accessibility Location
Noisy rooms in the 400 series - if possible do not get a downstairs room ask for 300 series they are upstairs and much quieter Annoyingly loud staff shouting and laughing in hallways Shower - sprayed water all over the room No free internet - was off I was told but the staff were sitting around using it
It's location within the airport
At the time of arrival, my booking with booking.com was not yet captured by the hotel's computers despite getting a confirmation letter. It made me a bit uncomfortable. The staff told me that the booking from booking.com can be late by even two days. This should be addressed.
It is easy if you arrive late at night and you have a connecting flight the next day.
I consider U$ 192 a bit too much for a room which in any other place in Johannesburg should do not more than U$ 120. The fact that the electronic card did not work, so we had to move to another room where there were initially no towels was no good.
Convenience Being in-transit Quiet
A bit spartan( good if your one of the 300)?
