1st class operation with best access at JNB. I little pricey, but you get what you pay for (doorman takes your bags to airline check-in). For the same money and if you have a bit more time, stay at the many 1st class hotels in Sandton, but if you need the convenience of the airport, this is the best hands... More

We were very surprised at the level of comfort at the hotel. The rooms are wonderfully quiet... Both from hotel noises and aircraft . Every single item we could think of was supplied. The food for dinner and breakfast was of a very high standard. The best surprise was the roof top gym- open 24 hours and with plenty of... More

Preparing for a safari in Namibia we came to Johannesburg for two nights before departing for Windhoek. Of course, the convenience of simply walking outside the airport door and looking directly at the Hotel Intercontinental is a first welcoming event. Then, being welcomed by the staff throughout the checkin process is another warm part of the event. Going to the... More

Stayed one night in June 2014 en route to East London. Like others have commented, would gladly have stayed longer. This is a great hotel! Rooms are beautiful and so comfortable. It is so easy to get to the hotel after an international arrival--clear Customs and then it's a 5-10 minute walk to the hotel. Didn't stay long enough to... More
