      location inside of the terminal

      If you usually staying in high quality hotels, flying business/first class, this is wrong place! Suitable only if you have a choice to sleep in the terminal or here. No drinking water in the room, no fridge. Noise not only from the airplanes but also from A/C outside of the room. Impossible to sleep. 1 towel for 2 person Old bathroom. When push the flash button in WC, You will broken your nails. Never again! Better get SAR visa and stay any other place

      Honestly, this was one of the worst hotel stays for the price that I've had in recent memory. I couldn't believe the lack of services. 1) no water provided. 2) no hand towels. 3) persistent noise all night long. 4) internet connection was terrible. Overall, highly unimpressed. I would never stay here again nor would I recommend the hotel to anyone.

      Furniture is modern, not of designer type. Beds are good. Bathroom is spacious and well equipped.

      Most of the hotel is underground. Almost every room is only artificially lighted. One feels like being in a cellar or cave. The hotel has no gym or pool. It is located in the duty-free area of the airport, and meeting with South African colleagues or friends is only possible if one immigrates after receiving a visa at the immigration. This is, however, not possible once one is in the hotel area. There is no restaurant. Meals including breakfast can only be taken in the room. Breakfast is not included in the room rate. Lighting at the beds is poor.

      position inside the airport as we were transiting

      Very slow to get a towel for the room. Really bad smell from garbage in an alley behind the hotel

    • Family with children
      7.0

      Arriving late at night after a long flight we could go straight to bed without having to get a taxi and travel to hotel outside the airport.

      It is not clear that the hotel is only for passengers in transit. We arrived at OT with JHB as our final destination - ie not in transit. However, we were able to go in and out of the departures lounge to access the hotell but it's not clear whether we were entitled to so. Are passengers arriving at their final destination entitled to use the hotel when they are not in transit? Please make it clear on the website BEFORE proceeding to payment.

      Nothing! I saw no information which said do not go through customs and into arrivals, like any other flight, or you will not be able to get to the hotel. To then get cheged for the hotel and have to get a new one feels like a complete scam and a service that is simply disgusting.

    • Single
      5.8

      The fact that it is inside the Airport, allowing a 24h transit trip, without leaving the airport.

      The price! It is extremely expensive for the room comfort and services provided: Very limited free internet access (allowing only about 1 hour and 30 min. Of use); no carpet in the floor (not even beside the bed); only 4 T.V. channels available; no refrigerator; no gimn; restaurant is far from the hotel.

    • Family with children

      The hotel was quiet and my children were able to sleep well between flights. We woke refreshed and were able to continue our journey easily.

      The tap in the bathroom sink was slowly leaking onto the bathroom sink bench top. I needed to use a towel to stop the water dripping onto the floor

      Located insite the transit area

      Extreme price, no breakfast.

    • Single

      Location and proximity to departure gates and shops

      The price is ridiculous with respect to the services. No restaurants in the hotel.
