We arrived at the InterContinental Johannesburg OR Tambo Airport after an overnight flight from London. The hotel is literally a hop, skip ad jump from the airport. We were welcomed by friendly staff. As we arrived very early we were grateful that both our rooms were ready. We only stayed one night before heading to Sabi Sands the next morning....

The Intercontinental is a good place to stay at JNB. The lobby could be more friendly/warm, check-in and check-out could be faster. Staff is very attentive, nice rooms, fast internet and laundry. The breakfast buffet is nice, but if you come early you´ll get your coffee by the cup - with the waiter taking your cup for refills to the...

We flew in from Uganda and were being picked up the next morning to go to a safari Lodge. We have no status with Intercontinental Hotels but we had a lovely room, great comfy bed, the bathroom was good, separate deep bath and a good strong shower. Nice toiletries. Good towels. I had booked dinner and requested storage of our...

Good quality hotel just a cross the street to the airport. Rooms were very nice with all needed equipments and facilities. Price was bit high but understandable since needed to take off early in the morning for a flight. There was a la carte dining but I was hoping for a buffee as well.

We chose this place as had an evening flight arrival and an early morning drive to Kruger next day. It is within short waking distance from main terminal and adjacent to car rental building. We had an upgraded room which was spacious, well decorated and well equipped and stocked. Service is courteous. We had breakfast at the restaurant. Food was...

On my trip to Howick in South Africa I stayed overnight at the airport Intercontinental. It was extremely easy to find and access being right across from the arrivals hall. Could wheel my trolley right to the front door and pick up an airport trolley on my way back. The hotel staff were so helpful and friendly and I felt...

We visited this ICH for dinner only, having stayed at others in the past. We ordered two cocktails, two starters and a main. All food took and beverages took an incredibly long time to arrive considering the amount of people there at the time and all were below average. The service was very attentive but we would definitely not eat...

You cannot find more conveniently located hotel the this one for a stopover. The welcoming was warm with a professional staff. Clean and very quite rooms despite being right in front of the airport. Good food for dinner and breakfast. And also excellent, lovely and friendly spa ladies, my wife and I had a great time with them!

Attached to the airport so exceedingly handy. The public areas were pleasant, and a nicely done restaurant with a small outdoor patio. Rooms are ok, tho on the smallish side. Nicely decorated and maintained. Good lighting at bed, desk, no other table, mini bar and coffee. The single sink in the bathroom and lack of counter space was a downer,...

We only stayed one night before our flight back to Hong Kong but were so impressed with this hotel. Everyone we encountered on the team was fantastic. Such warm service from check in, in room dining, breakfast at the restaurant to leaving the hotel. The porters were also fabulous. It is not often you are wishing for an airport stopover...
