We stayed at the ICH at JNB on two separate occasions, each during a layover between the US and our connecting flights in South Africa. You are paying for location and the quality of the hotel itself; I would gladly pay the $325USD rate again. We arrived at 5pm from ATL and were greeted by a very warm staff who... More

I stayed here after a 14 hour flight from Atlanta. The long flight compounded some back problems I was experiencing so by the time I arrived in Jo-burg I was very happy to be staying someplace so conveniently located relative to the airport. The rooms are very nice and well insulated from the airport noise. I had room service for... More

If the idea is to stop over at Johannesburg on the way in or out, this has to be the ideal choice. It is a 2 minute walk to the terminal, and luggage carts are conveniently located outside the hotel. We stayed here on our way out of South Africa after an exhilarating 2 weeks, and I can say this... More

The service and everything was by far one of the best hotels I have stayed in South Africa. Wish I would have stayed longer but will go back there again in the new future. I recommend coming here if you need to pick someone up at the airport or just getting away for a few days Food +++++ Service +++++... More

Safe and easy walk from the international terminal. Luxurious rooms with excellent service. Breakfast in the restaurant was excellent. Useful easy access to all the shops and restaurants in the airport from which I bought some very reasonable supplies to take back for dinner in my room which saved on costs. Very quiet.

Expertly decorated and staffed, located literally steps from the international arrivals terminal at Tambo. Stop here overnight on the way to Maun to give yourself a travel break. Amazing breakfast options. Mostly a business hotel but perfect for stopovers too. High level of security was appreciated. Only complaint, only one sink in the bath. We coped.

Not only is this a lovely hotel, it couldn't be more convenient to the Airport. We passed through Joberg 3 times in November, going and coming from various safari camp, then flying back to the states. We did eat at the hotel restaurant which was good if a little pricey, (outstanding breakfast), but the airport is so convenient that we... More

The standard of the hotel is excellent. Helpful staff, wonderful rooms, comfortable beds, lovely bathroom, swimming pool, fitness centre. Didn't try the food, and if you find hotel food expensive, then you can always eat in the airport terminal. The only negative is that the internet connection should be better - I could not get Skype calls to work. The... More
