After 13 days of safari camps, we stayed overnight so we could see a bit of Johannesburg the next day before taking an evening flight back to the US. The hotel is lovely with spacious rooms, friendly people and an excellent restaurant,Quills. It is also very quiet despite being so near the airport. When we had to leave for our... More

I agree with other comments here, that this is not an average airport hotel. My husband and I spent one night here before our flight back to the US, and were pleasantly surprised. Our room was surprisingly quite for an airport hotel, nicely appointed with coffee/tea in the room, and there was a pleasant restaurant where we had both dinner... More

My mother and I fly into joberg from Australia and stay at the InterContinental airport hotel over night often before we take our next flight the following day. The InterContinental is right outside of the airport which makes it incredibly easy to get to (no travel by car required) and most convenient as you only need to walk across the... More

Just stayed for two nights at the Intercontinental Hotel. It is right beside the airport, and is absolutely beautiful. The staff are so friendly and can't do enough for you. The rooms are excellent, so comfortable and spacious and the food is excellent. Can't fault it at all. We had one day out with one of the hotel drivers, Geoffrey.... More

From check in, to our room and a delightful meal with exceptional selections of South African wine- this hotel is beautiful, hospitable service and great 24 hour dining options! They surprised us with a desert plate saying "happy anniversary" . Our luggage was effortlessly transferred from the airport and back!

As you step out of international airport, you enter the Intercontinental property. Nice, small hotel with a Gym and spa at top-floor. Rooms are good , well maintained, room service also timely and professional. Very good breakfast, chefs take special care to ensure that guests have enough options. However, the service at the restaurant is something which needs to be... More

The OR Tambo Inter Continental hotel is located within just a couple of minutes walk from the arrivals hall. The walk is well lit in hours of darkness and is safe. The hotel operates 24 hours and is usually very accommodating with check in at odd hours of the day and night. The rooms are excellent and have good facilities... More

This hotel is one of the best airport hotels I have ever stayed in. The rooms are nice and beds are quite comfortable and the breakfast is quite good as well. The hotel staff was good as well. I asked the hotel for better internet access and they were accommodating for me.

We stayed two nights ( one on way to Kenya and one on way back). Dinner was very much that of a 5 star restaurant. Being across street from airport allowed us to have additional dining options.
