The Intercontinental was the perfect place to recharge after a safari trip before my long trip home. The room was immaculate, bed was very comfortable and the food was great. I indulged in a massage and pedicure in the spa which was a treat. The staff is amazing! I left a tip on the desk in the room when I... More

This is a fabulous hotel. Sheets are heaven, spa is luxurious, restaurant very nice. We stayed here between Safari and a week at the beach. It was great after the safari to have a massage and pedicure. We were able to leave our big bags there as we tooka helicopter to the island. Very happy to have stayed there.

Our flight from Johannesburg to London was cancelled at the last minute due to a technical problem so we stayed at the Intercontinental at the JHB airport for a night. Excellent service with check in late at night, delicious breakfast and very helpful and friendly staff.

Stayed here after 15 hour flight from Atlanta. Check in was fast and easy with the hotel clerks being friendly and inviting. Had an executive room which was very nice and clean. Stayed here two nights and was very happy with everything. Highly recommend ed.

When you arrive into Joburg so very tired from a long long flight, this is a perfect overnight stop before connecting to your next flight. The beds are comfortable, the rooms large enough to store a lot of luggage, and clean. The baths have a separate walk in shower. What more can you want for a few hours. Perfect. And... More

This is a nice hotel. You can walk from the terminal to the hotel. Literally, across the street. Staff is very helpful and the hotel (while a little tired), is generally clean. The food is not very good. Try to skip it if possible. This is a great business hotel and very convenient. Great car service, if you need to... More

This hotel could not be more conveniently located immediately outside the airport terminal building and next to the car rental outlets. It provides the ideal stop off either to catch an early morning flight, or to rest after a long haul flight before setting out on a road trip. Not somewhere to be based if you want to visit Jo/burg.... More

I only spent one night here en route back from Mozambique. Sadly, the usual LAM flight debacles meant I did not have the long evening I had hoped here, but it was a luxurious haven after the previous frustrating week. Check in was quick and efficient, and the room very comfortable and quiet. Nice spacious bathroom with a good shower.... More

We spent one afternoon and evening at the Intercontinental Hotel at Johannesburg Airport in between flights on a long southern African trip. Normally we prefer smaller boutique hotels like the wonderful one we had stayed at a couple of months before in Johannesburg, but because of our flight schedule, it made the most sense to stay at the airport --...
