Johannesburg Airport Hotels
in the vicinity of
the OR Tambo International Airport

I've done this list of Johannesburg Airport hotels in order of distance from the airport.
The hotels at the top of the list are in the airport complex, whereas the one at the bottom of the list is furthest away.
Coinciding with this is cost!
Staying in a hotel close to the airport, is a luxury that has a price.
Staying in a Johannesburg Airport hotel, further away, tends to be cheaper - and possibly, but not always, offer less luxury!

Prices vary from below R500 per night, to well over R2,000 per night.
Check each hotel website for up to date accommodation prices.
