    Very handy for overnight stopover for airport transit passengers. Friendly staff and good room rates. Free wireless internet available but I did not use it on this visit so cannot comment. Inclusive breakfast reasonable without being ostentatious and overall good value for money if you do not want to get out and about

    Kitchenette has microwave only - no fridge, crockery or utensils.Isolated for anyone wanting to do some shopping at a reasonable mall which requires long taxi ride and negates any saving made on cost of room.

    Friendly staff, the airport shuttle was a great advantage. Clean rooms with a sumptious breakfast in the morning.

    There should be more crockery and cutlery for self caterers.the tv area is too small and cramped.

    The Dinner meals were excellently prepared. The fact that we could catch up on our e-mails and book our connecting flight by using your internet service provided. We really appreciated your meet and greet service.

    We really cannot think of anything we did not like. Only thing we had to walk outside to get to the restuarant and reception. No cover in case it rains.

    The proximity to O R Tambo international airport as we were in transit and the complimetary shuttle to and from the airport.

    We had trouble finding the driver of the shutlle.

    The best service ever and very friendly staff. I always stay at Life Hotel JHB International when I am flying to another destination and always get the best treatment from them. The shuttle service from the hotel to the airport and back are also excellent - sometimes slow but still good.

    Close to the airport and good value for money.

    The restautant food was slow and the quality not reliable

    We booked a single family room for 3 to save on cost. The room was clean and neat and certainly more than adequate but not fancy. Upon arrival we were told that due to a student conference on site they had moved us to their upgraded facility across the street and gave us two really lovely rooms at no extra charge. The staff is courteous and friendly and the airport shuttle is there on time when requested.

    The location to the airport was wonderful, as was the free airport pick-up.

    Unreliable: I received the wrong room that I booked (I didn't receive a deluxe triple), and the shuttle was 30 minutes late taking me to the airport.
