Our group of nine travelling from Atlanta to Zimbabwe stopped in Johannesburg for 3 days. Our group of 18 all meet up at the hotel the last night. What a beautiful hotel. The service was excellent, not to mention the staff was friendly and very tentative to our needs. The hotel was very clean including the rooms. No one out... More

We stayed here overnight twice during our 3 week vacation. The staff were friendly and the accommodations for top notch. Also, the ability to walk to the airport was a big plus. Love the comfortable beds and fabulous bathroom. We ate breakfast in the hotel and it was also filling and delicious.

My family and I traveled to South Africa between the 4th and the 20th August 2015. At two occasions, we had to stay overnight in Jo'Burg, close to the airport, to be able to catch our early flights. This hotel is definitely not that type of boutique hotel. But honestly, this is not what we were looking for. Let's take... More

We last stayed at this hotel in March, and in August this year. Although the previous stay was satisfactory, this one ticked all the boxes. I don't know what has caused the change, but it is pretty impressive. I find it difficult to find fault with anything. From the moment we arrived, to when we left, the levels of service... More

Great location immediately across from the airport. The rooms are nice and the beds are very comfortable. Restaurant is good also. The issues we had involved billing at the restaurant. We were overcharged several times. FYI - keep your receipt and definitely check your bill. First morning they charged me for the breakfast of someone who joined me without asking.... More

We landed late afternoon, had 2 nights and back out... the hotel is quite good for an airport location. No noise inside! The food in the restaurant (Quills) is very good... far exceeded my expectations. Don't take a tour anywhere. Have the hotel arrange for a driver and ask for Jeffrey! He is fantastic! a Joburg native he can tell... More

We stayed overnight to take an early morning flight. The hotel is very convenient to the airport. The room was very nice with all the amenities. We had a light late dinner that was very good. Breakfast was a very nice buffet.

This is our 2nd stay at the Intercontinental within a 12 month period and we were just as happy as this first time. Perhaps, it is the relief of getting off transatlantic flights or the exhaustion of travel or the fantastic convenience of this location to the airport....these are all true but it is more than that!
