Intercontinental JNB Airport, This hotel is literally across the road from the arrivals hall in the airport, it would have taken less than 15 minutes from collecting luggage to checking in at the hotel. The room was well appointed the shower spectacular the bed extremely comfortable the black out curtains did what they were supposed to & the room was extremely quiet, what more do you want after a 13 Hour flight. Well there’s a small pool and fitness centre with fabulous views over the airport. There’s an outdoor terrace bar serving chilled Castle Lager and very tasty snacks. Inside there’s a stylish restaurant with a good selection of food on offer. The staff were delightful and I would happily have stayed on. But that was not to be, Kruger beckoned.

I had to arrived a day earlier with my 15 months old toddler than my husband and therefore decided to stay at this airport due to the convenient of the hotel location. It is practically a stone throw away from the airport, no hassle of taking airport bus etc. From check in, the staff was so polite and warm that they made me feel so at home. I ate all my meals in room and after every meals, the staff will call to ask how was the food. I also visited the spa on the 8th floor, very good experience again. I will surely stay at this hotel the day before my returning flight again in future when I visit SA. Thank you!

Room Tip: The king executive room is much more spacious and comfortable if you have a toddler with you.

We had an absolutely wonderful 20 hour stay at the Intercontinental in between flights.
Our flight arrived at 10 AM and we were at the hotel by 11, and our room was ready--so welcome after a 11 hour flight from Paris. We were upgraded to a King Suite and the room was lovely. The room was huge, clean, had two windows for natural light, (although there are no views, it's attached to the airport after all) the A/C was good and strong, and the shower was one of the best hotel showers ever.
We had dinner at Quills restaurant there, service and food were top notch.
The breakfast buffet has to be seen to be believed. Seriously I don't know how they fit such a selection in such a moderate space.
Service was top notch from everyone we encountered, to include Sakile at reception.
My only negative is that the wi-fi signal in our room was a bit weak/slow.
The Intercontinental is definitely a luxury business class hotel.

Stayed for one night the inter con OR Tambo, as always the hotel never fails to impress you, great dinner selection, great wine selection, especially for an overnight stop over. Breakfast tops it all... Absolute 5 star luxury for a price off course. Will always be my stop over hotel with its ideal location at the airport.

Like others, I have to agree that this is the best airport hotel I have ever stayed at. 24 hour room service accommodates arrivals and departures at all times and they have the fastest room service I have ever experienced. I wasn't feeling well one night and asked for a clear soup and the chef himself rang me to discuss my needs and made a bowl of soup, just for me! There are 3 types of plugs at the room desk so you will not need a specific South African plug adapter. The room is large enough and the bathroom is beautiful and spacious. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Also, being next to an airport you want to be sure you won't hear or feel planes taking off and landing, airport traffic etc. This is one of the quietest hotels I have ever stayed in, both internal and external so no complaints at all.
