The Holiday inn at O R Tambo , Johannesburg. First off, this hotel is the old Airport Grand Hotel (and I mean old). Taken over by Holiday Inn, but nothing has been improved..same old sheets, bath fixtures, leaking toilets, bad AC, and wifi (non-existant). Second off, it is not at the airport, but it is a considerable distance away. Quite...

The hotel has recently undergone a complete refurbishment and upgrade of everything from the furniture to the linen and the comments we are receiving are delightful. We regret that you did not enjoy your stay with us and for not meeting your expectations, we apologise most sincerely....

We chose Holiday Inn for our transit in Johannesburg for one night before heading to Kruger. The hotel is perfect for those looking to stay close to the airport for transit or even otherwise, it's just 7-8 mins away from the airport and the hotel provides free shuttle. We got a great deal through Tripadvisor and the stay was very...

A little worn out in decor, this hotel is however clean and conveniently located close to the airport. The staff are friendly and there is a free shuttle bus available. Breakfast is an excellent affair whilst the evening menu is for emergency only. There is a pool and a gym too. A reasonable choice for a 1 nighter but not...

Stayed one night here on our way to Cape Town. So handy to the Airport and very well priced. Drinks and restaurant were great after a 14 hour flight from Australia. Free shuttle bus every half hour leaves from the Bus Terminal at Tambo International. All staff were really helpful and lovely. We will be back!!
