This hotel is super convenient if you need to stay over in Johannesburg. Our flight came in too late to make our flight to Phinda, so we stayed one night at the InterContinental and it was perfect. Super easy since it's literally across the street from the airport! Very clean, modern and the staff is very nice. They have a... More

Airport Hotels I have found are pretty standard. This one is 70 meters from the international terminal in Johannesburg an easy walk. The standard and service is very good with a good variety of food available from the restaurant and the rooms are well appointed and spacious. A good change from other airport hotels I have stayed in around the... More

On checking in we were mistaken for another guests. When we said who we were and checkin clerk apologies. Then I queried about a possible upgrade as I was a top level IHG member. After a while, the clerk upgraded us to a room which was freshly renovated and we were the first one to stay. He should have said... More

We arrived in the late afternoon from Australia and were flying out mid morning the following day. This was the perfect place to stay overnight. It really was a very, very short walk from the terminal, so there was no hassle with taxis. We were on the 4th floor and the blackout curtains and sound proofing were very effective so... More

Our company has used this hotel for a number of years and always had a good experience. The Conference rates at this hotel are some of the highest in Johannesburg, but we choose this hotel because of its convenience to the airport and the good service. Last week, however, our annual conference for 12 people was unfortunately dismal. The food... More

This top quality hotel is just perfect if your Africa trip requires a stop over night in joburg. We thought this would be the low point of our Zimbabwe Zambia and Mozambique trip but it turned out a much needed relaxing and enjoyable mid way break. Very luxurious and great comfy sleep. The restaurant quills is also exceptional
