After pushing through the fake "guides" to find the hotel shuttle behind the Intercontinental at the Jo'burg airport and a ver short shuttle ride, we checked in with pretty much no problems. Coming off a 15-hour flight with jet lag, my major complaint was the male clerk who checked us in could not understand my English and I could not understand his broken English. However, the restaurant experience was very good. The servers were friendly and very accommodating and the food was excellent. The room was clean and wireless internet worked well. Funny thing though, at 7:45am, we were awakened to a very loud choir singing in the lobby for some reason. Never did find out what that was about. Any other time we would have enjoyed it and marked it up as another experience in Africa; however, we were exhausted from our long flight there and jet lag. But we would stay there again and ask for a room on a higher floor.
