Very nice property and extremely convenient location for an airport hotel (literally across the street), upscale amenities, nice spacious rooms, excellent service, very helpful staff, will meet you at airport and take you over to the hotel and also guide you to your departure gate, excellent restaurant and breakfast buffet.

Very limited breakfast option for a 5 star hotel, the staff hospitality is of the highest standard, I was escorted to the airport check in point, simply out of this world, you will not get this anywhere else other than in Africa!!!

We bookended our stay in Southern Africa with two stays at the Tambo Intercontinental. The plan worked brilliantly! After a 17 hour Christmas eve flight from Atlanta, we were able to literally walk out of the departures and our hotel was right there. This was especially helpful on outbound flights as the hotel's baggage porter was able to take our... More

Me and my family spent only one night at the hotel but it was enough to have a great impression! The service is very good and the room is awesome! We really liked staying there. It's walking distance from the airport and the car rental companies, what makes very easy to come and go.

Literally a 5 minute walk from the International Arrivals terminal, the Interncontinenal is a haven of calm and comfort for the weary traveler. One can easily walk to the hotel ‘s front door on one’s own– even late at night. (The walk takes less than 5 minutes and is COMPLETELY safe. Also okay to take the luggage cart from the... More
