Right beside the airport, hotel porters will meet you at Arrivals to escort you 70m to the hotel. Spacious well appointed rooms, excellent food in Quills restaurant, good service from concierge. For connections between flights this is very convenient, comfortable and safe.

We stayed at the Intercontinental twice on the day before and after our trip to Botswana, on June 13 and on June 26. This hotel is easily one of the best layover hotels anywhere. Airport signage to find the hotel is clear and the hotel itself is extraordinarily conveniently located. The staff - everyone - are very helpful, the bar... More

The Intercontinental is the most convenient choice if you have an overnight at JNB. In walking distance literally a stone-throw from the main terminal, and the hotel crew will be very happy to help you getting your baggage back to your counter the next day. Flawless service, fast check-in, spacious and spotless rooms, excellent food in general, and the best... More

I had stayed there in the executive room. The room has a very good setting with decent amount of space. Room service is excellent and the staff are very courteous. Ideal place to stop over if u are transiting overnight thru Johannesburg as it is just outside the terminal entrance walkable by about 50 meters. Easy access for late night... More
