If you find yourself either transiting through Joburg or only in town for a short amount of time and want to be close to the airport, look no further than the
InterContinental Johannesburg OR Tambo
Convenient: literally a stone's throw from the arrivals exit; save time in the morning when you want to crawl out of bed and make your crack-of-dawn flight out of Joburg.
The lobby, public areas and the rooms are modern, comfortable and elegant - in line with the ICH aesthetic. The rooms are comfortable, well stocked, and quiet. The (pleasant) surprise for me, was the food - both the room service (which is available around the clock) and the breakfast offerings were far from the typical or the expected! Boerewors roll and Bobotie on the room service menu! A gorgeous spread of cheeses, fruits, baker's basket in the breakfast buffet, not to mention Biltong and Droëwors!
May i remind you, dear reader, that this is *an airport hotel*? I know where i'm staying, next time i transit through Johannesburg! [Less]
