Adjacent to airport, ideal for stop over for connecting flight. Rooms are well equipped, clean and very comfortable. Bathrooms are a good size and finished with quality. View from swimming pool is amazing and well worth a visit. A very relaxing place to stay. Safe and with great staff.

We only stayed here for a day to recover from a flight from the US and to organise our Safari trip for the following days (last minute, us? nah ...). The hotel is a perfect pit stop and is ridiculously close to the airport; you do have to actually come out of the airport but it's only a matter of... More

Thanks to the InternContinental hotel and staff for giving me refuge when pursued by an unwanted "porter" out of the airport. Even though I was not a guest, they welcomed me when I came into the lobby to detach myself from this prowler. They gave me glass of water, welcomed me and the Head Porter personally escorted me to the... More

IHG never disappoint me, it is unusual to get an airport hotel that feels like a town hotel, literally 50 metres from departures/arrivals, OK so the views are pretty rubbish but nothing else is. Excellent rooms, service and staff, The first person I met was David (trainee) on reception when I arrived who processed the check in with good humour,... More

After a 20 hour travel day we need some place to regroup and prepare for our safari. This is not your average airport hotel. Steps away from baggage claim right across the street is this wonderful hotel. Quiet, nicely appointed and beds so comfortable it dares you not to sleep even with jet lag. Restaurant was a welcome destination with... More

What a treat for an airport hotel! So convenient, and as a Royal Ambassador, they left no stone unturned in making me comfortable. Vera, the manager, made sure at the end of my stay all was right, and Sara, the Spa Manager, also made sure I had an excellent experience. The wi-fi was strong, the food good and 24 hours,... More

This is no ordinary airport hotel! We avoid airport hotels whenever possible; the typically poor service and air traffic noise being the key reasons that cause us to feel it’s worth going elsewhere. This was not the case with the Intercontinental however. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome. The accommodation is spacious enough that you... More

We stayed in this hotel one night on our way to Botswana. It is ideally located (walking distance from the terminals) and actually we were very pleasantly surprised by its quality for an "airport hotel". Staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated. Food is good (we had one diner + breakfast there). There is a gym... More

We decided that after our long flight to Joburg that we would spend the night at an airport hotel before we continued on to Cape Town. We could not have been more delighted with the Intercontinental. The room was spectacular, the food was wonderful, and the service was beyond great. I highly recommend this property.
