Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ingosixx Great stuff
Very convenient and luxurious stay. Helpful and friendly staff who helped us when we had a delayed flight, they helped with a late checkout and let us use the hotel facilities - it is that sort of service that keeps me loyal to the IHG group of hotels.
Pat on the back to all of you !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TLCH Excellent Staff from door, food, housekeeping to management
Thank you to the staff who did a fantastic job in every way. They went above and beyond their duties to accommodate myself and three children. Superb training and customer service. The door men working are the best I've seen around the world. They provided door to gate help with luggage and were knowledgable of the airport facilities. The location is a tremendous help. Thanks again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Global0114 Great 5 star hotel right at the airport!
Great staff, beautiful interior and high quality rooms. It is like an oasis when you've been on a long flight! One of the best features is that you only have to walk across the airport to get there! The porters are especially helpful and walked me all the way to my gate when I departed.
The restaurant/lounge is relaxing with a great variety of food and drinks with a great staff.
Overall, a wonderful experience!

After 2 weeks in tent camps on safari, we decided to treat ourselves to 3 days at the Intercontinental at Tambo Airport. We found the bar/lounge a very inviting place staffed by personable young men with great English skills and positive attitudes.
The highlight of the stay was our spa experience. Our advice: buy a membership, get the associated discount, and go as often as you can.
Finally, there is a shuttle that runs every 20 minutes from the IH to the Emperor's Palace Casino and Hotel. There you can enjoy stage shows, good, value priced eating venues, and a little gaming if you are so inclined.
A fine stay that we will repeat someday.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joxo A hotel fit for purpose
I was on business flying in and out of Johannesburg daily so the hotel suited my needs down to the ground.
A minutes walk from the terminal to the hotel.
I was very impressed by the room service and their ability to get food from the kitchen to my room while it was still hot. Something of a rarity amongst hotel in general around the world.
I will make the Intercontinental at Johannesburg O R Tambo airport my destination hotel when next in Jo'berg on business for sure.

I recently stayed at the Intercontinental for one night after finishing a safari in Namibia and Botswana. I can honestly say thisis one of the best hotels I have stayed in with regards to service and quality. I asked for a late checkout as I wasnt flying out until 7pm the following day. The lovely receptionist gave me an extra late checkout with no hesitations at all. My room was perfect and welcoming. The bed was super comfortable and the bathroom was set up as if a friend was expecting me. The min-bar is stocked really well, and it's fabulous to have a Nespresso machine for coffee in the morning!
It is expensive compared to the Hotel close to the airportwhere I have also stayed, but there really is no comparison. It is extremely well signposted from the airport, and is literally less than a 2 minute walk once outside. Compared to 15 minute walk to neighbouring hotel...a little daunting to find when you are on your own. The service and knowledge of the Hotel Intercontinental staff is outstanding. Thank you team!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Againthesame Stayed here twice recently whikst in transit through Johannesburg
Have stayed here before.
As usual, the "Meet and Greet service," this time at the domestic terminal, worked impeccably.
The breakfast spread is excellent - particularly the yoghurts - although I wish you had smaller, thinner spoons so I could get every last bit out of the bottom of the pot!
Ate in Quills restaurant three times. Food of good quality and freshly prepared.
Reception staff as efficient and helpful as always and grateful for a late checkout on my last day.
The porters were also very helpful and accompanied me and my luggage to the departures area checkin desk.
Will always use this hotel when in Johannesburg and feel that many airport hotels could take lessons from hotel in how to deal with customer expectation efficiently and pleasantly.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GA Peach Close to Airport is Definite Plus
Being close to the airport is a definite plus for this hotel. Rooms were clean however, only one hand towel was left for two people in the room but we made it work as too tired from the flight and had to get up very early to make another flight. Always enjoy staying at an Intercontinental as I know generally the service will be excellent.
