Rooms and cleaness of the facilities. Staff and their responsiveness. Customer focus.
All were perfect
Nothing because they refused to check me in because I was connecting to a local destination. It was not clearly shown on the docs causing huge inconvenience and costs to myself. So I never even checked in!! Why do you now ask how was the hotel
I did not have the possibility to stay at the hotel as apparently it is obligatory to pick up your luggage at Tambo Airport and therefore you have to pass passport control. It would have been nice if they could have told me before I booked, because then I would have booked something else and wouldn't have been all by myself on 23:00H at Tambo Airport without a place to stay after an 11H flight.
The location within the airport, very close to boarding gates for flights to transit to
The shower flew over, giving a mess in the room, as the bathroom was not separated. No fitness.
very convenient location good price when using booking.com compared to rack rate (half) nice rooms with good wifi and comfortable bed nice shower
No room service (need to go to transit zone restaurants, most of which close at 2200) There was no soap/shampoo in my bathroom but had my own
size of room
location, comfortable bed, free wifi
slow & indifferent staff see through bath in the room, fine if you are alone, but really...
The location was very convenient. Hotel furnishings were neat and clean; the postings of departing airline schedules and gate numbers on the room TV was very helpful. It was most enjoyable.
Nothing; all was well.
I use to stay at this hotel when I travel throughout Johannesburg. It's usually an excellent choice for those who does not want to leave the airport when they have an international connection.
At this time (Dec '14), checking in was a terrible mess. Cancelled flights flooded up the reception, causing people to wait hours in order to get a room. I had my own reservation and still, I had to wait 3+ hours to get my Booked Room! Big mismanagement of the hotel administration, allowing the air company to distribute more vouchers that them could hold.
45mn of queue to get Room despite booking No restaurant Complicated access when you come from domestic flight as they refuse to let you through at security.
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.
