The property is a good option for a short term layover, being close to the airport with frequent regular shuttles.

Lovely modern & affordable hotel near the airport. Very friendly staff who greet you with big smiles and are always ready to serve. Got cold juice on arrival. Has very efficient free shuttle bus which runs every 30 minutes between the airport & the hotel. Spacious rooms. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was great with a wide selection of mouthwatering dishes. Very efficient air-conditioner. Fast check in and check out. Will definitely stay in this hotel again when I'm on transit in Johannesburg.

Exquisitely hotel close to the airport

Pros: The hotel service is excellent and the price is just fair. Nil complaints as it is worthy every cent.
Cons: Nothing. Quite [leased with everything. I didn't see anything which is substandard.
Location: The location is perfect for someone who intends catching an early flight because it is very close to the international airport. Quiet neighbourhood.
The staff members were exceptional friendly and always ready to serve. The hotel courtesy bus was always on time and the driver was very friendly and chatty. I had a peaceful sleep due to the comfortable bedding as well as the rooms which are soundproof. They have smart TV and I enjoyed watching my favourite channels. They also offer free WIFI which was quite fast and also easy to connect to internet with all my 3 electronic gadgets. Their food is great and I did not even bother to try somewhere else. The room has an fabulous air-conditioner.

Excellent stay at Premier Hotel OR Tambo

We stay here whenever we are in South Africa. Convenient to airport, friendly, excellent service and very comfortable rooms. This trip we left something in our room and housekeeping found it soon after our departure. A staff member made a special trip to the airport to drop it off to us and we made our flight! Thanks to Thula at the Premier Hotels airport booth and the great team at the hotel.

Lovely Airport Hotel

Pros: Everything
We stayed overnight at the Premier Hotel while we were between flights from Sydney to Nairobi. Everything about the hotel was excellent. including the room, sleep quality, breakfast and the short ride to the terminal on the hotel airport shuttle provided. The price was also most reasonable and we'd definitely stay at that hotel again.

Great place for overnight Jburg stop

This hotel was surprisingly good. It is clean and modern, rooms were spacious and comfortable and the service was super friendly and helpful. A great airport stopover hotel. There's a hotel shuttle bus so it's safe and easy to get to and from the airport.

Convenience near the airport

Pros: Efficient transport to and from airport. Convenience.
Cons: Organisation of service - it's over the top and intruding. Being continually interrupted by waiters is annoying. Chill guys :-)
Location: If you are without transport, options are limited in the area. You are virtually confined to the hotel, as there are no restaurants etc. nearby.
Efficient transport provided to and from the airport. Felt a little 'trapped' in the hotel though, as the area is not conducive to strolling around. Guess that comes with staying close to the airport.
