Pros: Sunflowers guest house is the perfect place to rest after a long flight. The neighborhood feel very safe and even if it’s very close to the airport (10 min by car) is very silent. Room is big and very nice. Breakfast tasty.
Cons: Nothing!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Out of all of Joburg's B&Bs this is hands down the best value for money, I would always go back here. A clean, comfy and spacious guesthouse with excellent location. On top of it the owners are absolutely friendly and went the extra mile to make me feel welcome. Albeit its excellent location close to the airport, it is a quiet place to relax and recover from flights. Great enjoying the sun in its garden, listening to the birds!
Excellent 9.5
Pros: Room was spacious and clean, breakfast was very good. Reception manager could not do enough and offered to serve breakfast earlier than what they normally do.
Cons: i wanted to stay close to the airport but the noise of aircraft taking off and landing during the night was desturbing. Nothing that the guesthouse could change.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Always a pleasure staying at sunflowers definitely recommend it perfect place to stay Thank you again Pam
Excellent 10.0
Pros: This place was perfect for my last night in South Africa. They have a driver for a ride to or from the airport for a reasonable price. The room was clean and Pam was a perfect hostess. You would not be disappointed with the quality Sunflowers offers.

Cons: NIl
Excellent 10.0

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great location for an airport stopover. Friendly, relaxed, secure and nice outdoor spaces
Excellent 8.3
Pros: The complimentary transfer from the airport was handled really well - even when they unexpectedly had more people than they could fit in the van. We got an unexpected (and much appreciated) upgrade to one of the front bedrooms, which was very comfortable. The staff were all friendly and helpful.
Cons: We found the stuffed animals in the bar really confronting. We came to Africa to experience the animals (and photograph them) not to endorse shooting them.
Excellent 9.5
Pros: Very nicely decorated restaurant. Great food, excellent value! Airport transfer is a great value that’s very appreciated.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Ambiance, super friendly staff, comfort, cleanliness, excellent breakfast, beautiful expertly done gardens. Meet and greet airport pickup by friendly driver. Front desk friendly, helpful. The gift shop had unique and well priced art pieces as well as souviners.
Cons: Absolutely nothing
Excellent 9.3
Pros: Perfect safe place for a night close to the airport
Cons: We had a great family room with separate living room. Our friends however had a very simple room.
Excellent 9.3
Pros: Great place, great food
Cons: Nothing
Good 6.3
Pros: Location is handy to International airport. However I pre arranged an airport shuttle pick up for my wife, but no one was there and she had to phone and then wait 20 minutes.
Cons: The area in Kempton Park where this facility is located is rather dodgy and one does not really feel very safe there.
Excellent 9.5
Pros: It was exceedingly cold for Johannesburg - so was delighted with the good quality duvet, sufficient blankets to keep you warm. there are so many extra touches, which make a big difference. 2 litre water, shampoo etc. in bathroom with BIG labels, Sat TV in room, attentive staff in bar and dining room. You can see that it is a very much hands-on operation with husband and wife duo making sure all running smoothly.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Quick collection from the airport, lovely service. On time for transfer the following morning. Comfortable, quiet and homely.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: This hotel is definitely one not to miss if transferring through Johannesburg. It’s right outside the airport, it’s clean & tidy and quiet. The staff are very friendly and very attentive without being intrusive and the food is excellent. I cannot rate this highly enough!
Excellent 8.8
Pros: I really enjoyed my stay. The best bed I've ever experienced in a hotel, and the shower was just perfection. I would definitely stay here again. The little cookies in the room were great too. And as a big water fan, I was grateful for the many bottles of complimentary water in the room. The free shuttle service made my commute between the hotel and my meetings seamless and so easy.
Cons: I think for the high rate one pays for the room, it should really be bed AND breakfast. But unfortunately, you pay for breakfast separately - a fact that the reception desk failed to tell me when I checked it. I also didn't get clear instructions on dinner at the restaurant. I assumed it was walk in, only to be told I'm supposed to make a reservation. It would have been nice to be given this information at check in when being told about the restaurant. I ended up eating out since the 2 hour wait was a bit much for me.
Excellent 9.7
Pros: Best location you can get. Very comfortable and clean
Cons: Breakfast buffet was a bit light and not to normal standards of the Intercontinental chain
Excellent 9.7
Pros: Location as it is right in front of the airport
Cons: Cost should be more in line with other hotel rates in South Africa
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Great location for someone arriving Johannesburg one day and leaving the next. Hotel is 3-minute walk from Airport, which has luggage carts you can push over there and leave. Bellman will take you to ticket counter for check-in the next day. Great staff, genuinely pleased that you are there. Excellent food. Soundproof, no airport noise. I normally stay at Sandton Hilton near my business partners' office, but when staying overnight to connect a flight the next day, the added cost of this hotel is absolutely worth while. I shall return.
Cons: Cannot think of anything I did not like.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Wonderful way to regroup after a LONG trip to Johannesburg. Highly recommend staying here before heading on.
Cons: Nothing
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The position of the hotel is convenient if you do not wish to go into Joburg city. For an overnight stay, it is fantastic. The hotel is beautiful and classy. The staff are all friendly and fantastic, too happy to help and also, accommodated us with a problem we had with our air conditioning.
Cons: The price is quite expensive. The air conditioning is not cold enough even though we were upgraded to an executive room, the air conditioning only went down to 22’C. Not 18’C. Our originally allocated room was 26’C and got down to 23’C and that was uncomfortably hot for us to sleep in.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: We stayed here after two long back to back 10 hour flights to rest up before our 2 week Safari This hotel was across the street airline terminal yet was quiet and lovely, The room was beautiful , beds were comfy. The staff was very friendly Restaurant was good I love the upstairs indoor pool with large windows overlooking Johannesburg My husband said spa ( massage) facilities were great and reasonably priced for large hotel. If you are in transit and need to catch up sleep stay here This hotel price was NOT inexpensive but worth it to me for location and comfort in a luxury setting Highly recommend
Cons: We had a great experience. No problems
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The Intercontinental at OR Tambo airport is a very special place. It doesn't feel like an airport hotel at all! I always feel like I'm on holiday when I stay there. I'm a frequent visitor and will be back soon.
Cons: My stay was way too short.

Pros: The host couldn't have been more helpful. We had just landed in SA and had no plan on where to go, but with her advice on how to get about it helped us get sorted. The location was close to the airport which was perfect for us as we landed very late and wanted somewhere close to the airport to sleep. The free breakfast was a nice touch, with lots of options including Ramen noodles.
Cons: The decor was slightly outdated but this would just be nitpicking as overall it was an enjoyable stay.
Good 7.0
Pros: Incheck and hospitality
Cons: It was backpackers quality, not more than that.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Hotel/hostel near airport, perfect for a short inexpensive one-night stay as downtown Johannesburg is quite far from the airport
Cons: I wasn't there long enough to find any problems
Excellent 9.3
Pros: Super friendly Joy . Clean room Clean bathroom/shower Well maintained property Quiet . Nice pool and rec area.
Cons: Actually ?
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Point 8.8 - none of those. It is old accommodation but clean and conveniently situated. People going there shouldn't expect Buckingham Palace but the Lady is friendly, helpful and above all good and safe budget accommodation worth the money you pay
Cons: Nothing in particular or outstanding but a purposeful place conveniently located
Excellent 9.5
Pros: The backpackers is in a great location for the airport. Uber is available to and from the place for 5usd each way. Our host was fantastic and couldn't have been more helpful even when we arrived after 10pm. Check in was easy. The bed is super comfy and the shower was great. For the price it was fantastic. The room was clean with clean towels available. Euro adapters were in the room and a small but decent fan was provided as there is no aircon. Breakfast is rustic and simple but with lots of options. Nice options for check out times if your flight is a little later.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Perfect place for staying when you have to catch a flight early.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: A R55 uber trip away from the airport if you want to sleep during your layover. The accommodation is affordable, there are bath and shower facilities and has probably the best bed I've ever slept on. We were able to make us some coffee, grab some breakfast and leave in the wee hours of the morning without a struggle.
Cons: No complaints
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Everything, a home to home. The host Joy is absolutely fantastic. Spacious rooms and great place to stay after a long flight or if you need an early flight. Plenty of bathrooms, clean rooms. Really does feel like home. Joy has so many stories to share if you have time to sit and enjoy.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: The owner was really nice. Also the Garden and the pool were quite nice. It's really close to the airport

Pros: Quiet environment, neat rooms
Cons: Was not informed of check out time when I lodged into the hotel. It's a transit hotel, why should I check out by 11am when my flight is for 6pm. They need to review their entire policy for guests. Meals don't get served in the rooms, you have to check into boarding area to eat and then check back out. Doesn't make much sense.

Pros: Quick ride to and from airport. Very convenient.

Pros: The rate. The shuttle bus. They had a room available on short notice.

Excellent 9.5
Pros: The facilities are very nice and comfortable in all aspects.
Cons: 1. The Chauffeur driver on the day didn't give me a good look when I approached him to introduce myself as his next client from the Airport. Instead, he was busy with his friend whom he gave a lift to the next small town stop from O.R Tambo Airport. I was a bit nervous on the way. 2. I had to report a noise from the next room 9 to the reception because of a drinking fueled debate.

Pros: The rooms were nicely furnished and quiet. The dinner selection in the dining area was limited but tasty and very reasonably priced. The breakfast buffet was even better! Very convenient to the airport, but follow the signs in the terminal or ask at the information desk. If you walk outside, you'll be accosted by individuals offering to show you to the hotel elevator for a mere $100 ea. Needless to say, they didn't get that much from me.
Cons: My only complaint is that the only room service is contracted out to 3rd parties whom you contact directly, in spite of the fact that the guide to guest amenities in the room indicates the hotel will supply traditional room service; they don't.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Excellent breakfast.
Cons: Would be better if they offered dinner as well.
Excellent 8.2
Pros: Free wifi. Delivery available from Nandos!
Okay 5.1
Pros: Prepare yourself to wake up sweating in the early hours of the mornings. Their system is designed to turn of the air conditioning several times while you're sleeping. The a/c doe snot come back on automatically. Not only does it not come back on automatically, but you cannot turn it back on immediately. You have to wait 10 to 15 minutes.
Cons: Air conditioning problems and long lines at check in.

Excellent 8.2
Pros: Very convenient to the airport, so great for a layover. The shuttle, which runs every half hour, was on time. The restaurant and food were good value.
Cons: The shower didn't have a door or curtain, and it was impossible to keep water from leaking out onto the floor. The room was small, which is okay for a quick layover stay, but can make things awkward if you have a lot of luggage.

Pros: Great breakfast
Cons: Small room, small bed, cold industrial design. No place was comfortable.

Pros: It offers everything you need for a stopover.

Okay 4.3
Pros: Shuttle service efficient
Cons: I found the whole ambiance, atmosphere and general design of the interior including the reception area and the rooms totally against my concept of classy, quality Hotel design.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: My stay was amazing we arrived to watch the sun set and left before breakfast unfortunately but this place ticks all the boxes and so conveniently close to the airport great for our 1 night stop over 5 star
Cons: The prices where a bit high but for tourists I geuss it's perfect
Okay 5.0
Pros: In a good location, as far as proximity to the airport is concerned and provides a cheap overnight stay if you just need somewhere to bed down on a budget. Dining room had an honesty bar, which is unusual to see these days and was a nice touch concerning property approach to customers. Airport pick up and drop off was efficient and appreciated.
Cons: General area around the lodge was noisy. The rooms were shabby and in need of some fresh paint and general maintenance. Breakfast staff weren't exactly very communicative or full of the joys of spring - so would have been better to leave earlier and get breakfast at the airport. Bit of a shame really - as communication with the Lodge prior to the stay was excellent and details of the airport transfer were very clear and detailed - but the stay and rooms didn't live up to it. If you need a really cheap bed for the night - then fine - otherwise spend a bit of extra cash on a proper hotel, feel more comfortable and sleep better.
Excellent 10.0
Cons: Delightful staff, excellent service.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Secure, tranquil oasis five minutes drive from Johannesburg Airport. Friendly, well-trained, helpful staff who put careful thought into accommodating our family booking. Diverse, international clientele. Vibrant, relaxed atmosphere with lovely, well kept garden and pool. Entire place spotlessly clean, not only rooms but communal areas too. Honesty bar. Room heaters and large, comfy bed. Well appointed rooms. Delicious food cooked to order from a small but perfectly adequate menu if you're only spending one night. Great value for money and as close as it gets to Johannesburg Airport without actually staying in an on-site hotel. Would recommend and would definitely stay again.
Cons: Secure location and fine to come and go during daylight hours, but I would not venture out at night so you are limited to eating supper on-site. A couple of night flights taking off around 3am woke me briefly, but that's my own fault for not wearing ear-plugs, and I quickly nodded off back to sleep in the warm, comfy bed. Kitchen and waiting staff duo do an excellent job, but do arrive early and give yourself as much time as possible to enjoy a cooked breakfast as the modest dining room does get very busy quite quickly.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Conveniently close to the airport - shuttle driver was friendly and professional. Staff are all helpful. Nice dinners available for purchase. Comfortable bed. I stay here every time I travel through OR Tambo.
Okay 5.5
Pros: Location and transfers plus basic breakfast.
Cons: Waiting for transport and dinner food order. Brai/BBQ chicken very late poor and undercooked. This never happened before this lodge has staffing problems now ...it never had this in the past. Plus a poor attitude from being perhaps overworked and under paid??
Excellent 10.0
Pros: The Management is so kind. Help guests heart and soul Thank you.

Good 7.7
Pros: Plenty of food choices and entertainment
Cons: Getaroom.com screwed up the booking and there was no record of it with the Hotel. Mondior accommodated me though and were very helpful
Good 6.3
Cons: The reception ladies had an attitude from hell. I didn’t get the rooms I expected and when I went to enquire you’d swear the lady was going to give me a beating they didn’t even bother smiling the whole 6 days I was there. I am really disappointed
Excellent 9.3
Pros: the place is great, staff are very helpful, the Manager in the hotel is very understanding and helpful
Excellent 8.8
Pros: The main reason for me for my satisfaction was the staff. From Cordee in the restaurant, Josephine at reception, Jacob in the bar and all the other staff who were helpful, professional happy and welcoming. I would recommend this hotel to all the people I know travel and stay in Joburg.
Excellent 9.3
Pros: The food court and various hotels makes it look like a resort. A great place to be at.
Excellent 9.5
Pros: Recreation facilities
Cons: NA
Good 6.3
Pros: Loved the breakfast buffet, and the bed was very comfortable. Other than that, there was very little I liked about our stay at the hotel.
Cons: The hotel ignored my request (through booking.com) for an early check-in, so I had to call them myself. They confirmed a 1pm check-in, but when we arrived, the room was only available at 2:30pm! I've stayed in 3 star hotels with bigger standard rooms (and we were in a "superior king" room), the shower leaked, there were exposed cables in the room, the bathroom sink's plug didn't work, and we were rudely awoken by cars revving and tooting their horns in the morning. Definitely not worth the price you pay to stay there. (My complaints at check out were ignored)

Pros: Every thing in order

Pros: Friendly Service, good buffet breakfast
Good 6.5
Cons: One can not check out and subsequently have breakfast. And, of corse, when I got through with breakfast the check out line had a half dozen people in it and when I tried to check out earlier I was the only one in line. Will not stay at this property again.

Cons: I liked everthing
Okay 5.0
Pros: The staff were friendly. Parking was cheaper than the airport.
Cons: The wash basin still had the facial hair from the previous customers shaving their face. It had not been cleaned. The hotel felt like it needed to be refreshed. It felt a little shabby.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Sadly except for check in process described below it would have been an exceptional place but hard to get over a start like I had .
Cons: I stood in line for one hour to check in, a huge line because international fights arrive mostly at late eve. Still no excuse as it must happen regularly I reserved and asked at check in for a bath tub but got a room without. Returning to desk and repeatingi the process got me a bath tub. Took over an hour and a half to check in. After 25 hours of travel this made me very grumpy!
Good 7.5
Pros: The breakfast was good. Consider Gospel channel on DSTV
Cons: NA
Excellent 9.3
Pros: I have stayed twice at this Hotel and both times it has been excellent. The rooms aren’t the most modern, but are always spotlessly clean and a good size. They have lots of space on tables to put stuff on, without the normal pamphlets and clutter other hotels often have. The free WiFi is also very good. The buffet breakfast is outstanding with loads of choice. They have an especially nice pastry and bread selection. The staff are also very pleasant and surprisingly cheerful. The free shuttle runs very regularly to and from the airport terminals. I would highly recommend this Hotel to anyone flying in or out of Johannesburg.
Cons: The lighting in the room is a little dark, but it’s a minor criticism to a very pleasant Hotel.
Excellent 9.7
Pros: We had a stopover in Johannesburg before connecting another flight to Zimbabwe. This hotel was so convenient, the staff courteous, and room comfortable.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Beautifully set up and a real five minute drive to the airport.
Cons: No internet in the room nor in the relaxing areas of the second floor.
Good 6.3
Pros: The free shuttle to and from the airport is good. The staff seemed friendly, the food was OK, but the property was not great and I would not have wanted to stay more than 1 night.
Cons: The heating is centrally controlled with some kind of manual system and takes a while to kick in once started. I did not expect to have to wear my jackets in the room. There are some instructions for getting the hot water to work, which I followed, but which did not work very well. The instructions say to tell staff if it doesn't work, but this is hardly convenient when you're in the shower. The remote control is wired to the wall and so its only possible to change the channels in bed. There is no power point near the bed. To combat this, I moved my bed towards the opposite wall to charge and use my phone. Because of this, it was difficult to control the TV as the remote didn't quite reach. Also, there was only the DSTV remote, so when I tried to turn off the TV to sleep, the blue screen showed for some time, making the room very bright.
Excellent 8.2
Pros: I liked the room, the services and how clean the place was. Everything was really nice. The place is good and comfortable for adults going on trips and it's just perfect
Cons: I dint like that I had little money and couldn't stay for longer:)

Pros: The location is very quiet and close to a shopping mall.
Cons: There was no air-conditioning in the room. The WiFi was very weak to almost non existent. The signal was intermittent and only available for a few seconds at each moment it was available. The phone in the room was dead. Despite that I reported the WiFi and the phone these were not working until I checked out. The reception staff was very unwelcoming and close to rude actually. The television is old and even obsolete. There's only one dstv satellite channel that is controlled in another room. You can't change the channel in your room. The other 3 channels are analogue - who still uses analogue channels these days in a commercial accommodation????,
