Stayed just one night as a staging post between Mozambique and Zambia, arriving at around 7pm and needing to leave around 6.30am the next morning. Check in a dream, easy and quick. The room was most acceptable, comfortable and clean. Despite being within 100 yards of the terminal building of what is a busy airport noise levels were low. This... More

This is a vey safe and well located hotel for the airport and the gautrain enabling easy access to all my business meetings and facilitating travel to Botswana and Mozambique. I ate and entertained in the restaurant on several nights where the menu provided a good selection of wine and food. Service was attentive without being overpowering.

The staff is not responsive and caring about clients waiting at concierge or experiencing problems. Despite it's conveniently located at the airport, the serice is not always at the level you expect for the price and the Intercontinental standards.

My husband and I stayed here along with another couple after a very late flight into OR Tambo and what an amazing experience it was!

Well run and convenient as a transit stopover, closest hotel to the airport easy to walk and well signposted inside the terminal. Just ignore touts wanting to "help" you. Interconnecting rooms great for a family, larger corner room has plenty of space to socialise. On 2nd floor we had no issues with noise at all. Restaurant a bit small for... More

Best location for an airport hotel - literally less than a 5-minute walk from the airport. Collect your luggage, put it on a luggage cart and roll it out the door across the street to the InterContinental.

Though the rate to stay here is too much it is convenient and comfortable after waiting for a delayed flight, missing a connecting flight and trying to track down lost luggage. Morning room service at 5:30 am was perfect in every way. We had a peaceful sleep which is exactly what we needed after a crazy day of travel mishaps.... More

We stayed here for one night between safari and flying home to the U.S. It is the most convenient hotel for the airport since it is the only one that does not require a shuttle to access. That was the main reason why I picked it and the good reviews on TripAdvisor. However, the hotel went above and beyond my... More
