Super convenient - just walk across the street. First class accommodations with all the accoutrements to make your stay luxurious including large marble bathroom and separate shower / tub, great toiletries, an espresso/coffee machine, fresh fruit, and more in your room. Linens are excellent. Room darkening drapes are great. Noise is non-existent. And the restaurant downstairs is great. We had... More

I stayed only one night between safaris in Zimbabwe and South Africa. The hotel service was excellent and the room was wonderful and well appointed. The hotel restaurant QUILLS also had superb food and superior service. The gym and pool are on the 8th floor and is equipped with modern equipment. The only complaint was that I was specifically told... More

My flight was cancelled due to engine failure therefore spent a night at The Intercontinental at OR Tambo. The hotel is outstanding. I was welcomed at 1230 in the morning by the most pleasant and helpful man at checkin. The porter was also very helpful. The room was wonderful. Exceptionally good bed and linen. Breakfast was delicious. The hotel altogether... More

This is one of the best airport hotels we've ever stayed in. Rooms are impeccably maintained and service is attentive and efficient. The restaurant (Quills) is well regarded - we only had breakfast there, but the spread was definitely top-notch. Thumbs up. The rooms are reasonably spacious, and there's great WiFi throughout the property and in the room. The hotel... More

We only stayed one night but were treated to excellent service. If we had a question the representatives at the concierge desk were there with the answer and it included a warm smile! However, I do recommend you request a porter take you back to terminal entrance if you are flying out. There are the "not so honest" people claiming... More

Great location next to airport, Gautrain stop & rent-a-car. Efficient and friendly check-in. Rooms are on the smaller side but very nicely decorated. Nice turndown service, comfy bed and nice bathroom. Would definitely stay again due to great location.

We stayed one night, between our Botswana safari and our flight from Jozy to London, and it was an absolute treat. Nice big shower, good quality toiletries provided, thick towels, comfortable bed, helpful staff, everything was great. The only thing that wasn't topnotch was the air conditioning; we couldn't get the temperature below 20 degrees C, even though we set... More
