Great hotel, walking distance to Tambo Airport in Joburg, you literally just walk across the arrivals area and you're there! Very clean and the bathroom is awesome. Great coffee machine in each room! Concierge was very helpful in our duty free selection. You get what you pay for with this classy hotel.

Because of stop over from Amsterdam to Port Elizabeth I stayed in Intercontinental Tambo Airport. It was a very nice experience, but because of late arrival and early flight in the morning I only experienced my room. However, room was very comfortable. Because of my short stay costs per hour was quite high.

Will extend my stay during next vist.

Lovely hotel - good rooms and bathrooms and good available eating areas with bar and swimming pool. Very expensive though.

My wife and I had a terrible connection from Cairo to Asia via Jo'Burg. We arrived in Jo'burg at 10am and having already booked a room at the Intercontinental, we thought we would try our luck at a very early check in. We were greeted at the front desk and to our pleasant surprise we were handed our room key. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean with a great shower and bed. Everything you need for a long stopover.

Every member of staff were friendly and always had a smile on their face. The bar and restaurant were fantastic and pretty good value for a top end hotel. (Try the ostrich).

Cannot fault our stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent - Maybe ask for a room with a balcony (Only one per floor)

Its a bit long overdue because i stayed here for a week in May.As my title suggests, the staff are very friendly n made it a point to address me by name. Maybe its because I was there to run a business conference as well but nonetheless, staff went out of their way to make sure everything was seamless n smooth. They even threw in a complimentary wine n cheese session at the end. Will come back very soon as unlike other five stars hotel, I could feel a homely warmth as well.
