Use this hotel for one night due to a tight connection. Very easy to find from arrivals - just follow the numerous signs for Intercontinental Hotels and there is a bus depot to the rear. Didn't wait too long for a bus. Had the smallest portion of steak and chips in the Irish bar we have ever seen. There is... More

All staff are friendly and helpful. Big and clean rooms. And the Irish restaurant is a great place to chill and to eat and drink for a nice price. I love it. Good and save system for car parking. I had a very nice stay for 2 weeks. I love to come back.

Stayed here the night before my tour. Hotel room was comfortable, staff was friendly and the check in and check out process went smoothly. Had dinner in the restaurant downstairs and the good was gteat. Can't complain it was the ideal spot for the night. Just about 5 minutes from the airport. Will definitely recommend.

The staff were good and the check in went really well. However the stay itself wasn't great. Although we were probably a bit jet lagged the bed was very uncomfortable which made resting worse. Shower was good and the aircon although noisy did work well. The hotel has no ATM which is an issue especially as they could not change... More

After a long flight, I was looking forward to a bath & dinner. Upon arrival, they could not get my booking voucher because, lo & behold, it was sent to a computer which was in an office which was locked. I thought hotels offer 24 hour service? Waited at the reception for what felt like eternity. Was completely not impressed👎🏾

For once I enjoyed a sleepover in Johannesburg. The hotel staff were very helpful and went the extra mile. It was close to where I had to work and likewise travelling when I had to travel back to the airport

We stayed for one night as a 'stop-over'. Rooms are fairly small, but you have everything you need for a night. Breakfast was ok as the basics were covered but nothing special. The staff is friendly and helpful. Given that the airport shuttle runs every 30mins, and that its very close to OR Tambo, this is a great alternative to... More
