Southern Sun O.R Tambo International Hotel
Ranked #8 of 27 Hotels in Kempton Park
Reviewed June 8, 2011

High end airport hotel. everything you would expect from an international business hotel anywhere in the world.

What struck me most that the staff were very friendly - a lot more than in most cities I have visited around the world.

We stayed there during the world cup 2010 and had a good time. As it turned out we had to dash to the airport after the final and the location of the hotel was very useful in making our flight in double quick time.

I travel up and down to Johannesburg regularly for business. I always enjoy staying at this hotel. The staff are very friendly and always make you feel welcome.

Stayed there for two nights as my partner is based in Kempton Park and since the boss was coming over from CT for a meeting he also stayed there. Price was reasonaable and it was nice just to drop out of the airport and to be there in five minutes. It is really directly at the airport. But - you do not hear it! Sound insulation is great.
The rooms are spaceious and absoluteley clean. Bathroom has a huge shower stall and is in general big enough.
Only negative point might be the missing mini bar. The cabinet beneath the TV was there, but no fridge in it.

Stay here instead of the Intercontinental Hotel and save. Plus you can get a standard two double bed room. The rooms and Hotel are newer, the staff friendly and the shuttle bus is just behind the Intercontinental. The shuttle ride is 5 minutes at most. I booked on line, no problem at check in or out. We stayed overnight on our way to a Safari in Kruger.

We stayed at this hotel after a long flight. We booked this online with the hotel directly in a Superior King with Shower the rate included breakfast (which was excellent). We printed out the directions from their website for the free transfer service which is a short walk from the arrivals area, by the Intercontinential Hotel. The room we had was good, dark and we slept perfectly well. The restaurant was also good and offered a buffet dinner, however we opted for the cheaper meals off their menu, the curry was excellent! The buffet did look great tho but we were too tired to take advantage of the amazing choice of foods. Overall it served our needs for an overnight hotel before our departure the next morning.

I stayed at the Southern Sun OT with my family. Requested two connecting rooms which they did not ultimately make available so we squeezed into one room. Price was very decent at ZAR 1040 excluding breakfast, which is too expensive.

Hotel is fine just don't expect a fancy room, they are aged and very bland. I have no regrets but considering the high quality of hotels in Johannesburgh I think their ranking is far too high..
