Extremely expensive with no love.

Posted May 27, 2014
Extremely expensive and use every excuse to charge you more money. There is only one restaurant which was fair at best. There are other hotels a safe short walking distance that would be better to stay at.

Best place for a JNB layover

Posted May 25, 2014
Pros: Just the above!
Cons: Nothing, all great.
Location: This is an airport hotel - there is nothing else you're able to do.
This is simply the most convenient hotel for a layover at JNB. Clear customs, walk out of the terminal, cross the road and you are there. Efficient and friendly staff, comfortable, great food.

Overnight in JoBurg

Posted May 9, 2014
Pros: The spa, the rooms and the friendly staff
My partner and I flew from Sydney, Australia to Johannesburg and needed a hotel to overnight, before we flew to Madikwe. The Intercontinental is easy to access (it's straight after customs), and the service is outstanding. The rooms were exceptionally well appointed and comfy. We rang ahead and booked a massage at Camelot spa (definitely recommend after a long haul flight). Back to our suite, room service then bed. We were able to leave our packs at the hotel for 4 days while on Safari before heading to Cape Town. Would definitely stay again.

Best place to stay for a layover at JNB

Posted May 4, 2014
Pros: Great staff, great location, excellent breakfast buffet!
This is really the most convenient and comfortable place to stay if you have a layover at JNB. Pass immigration and customs, walk out of the terminal, and there you are. Very friendly staff, lightning fast check in. We arrived pretty early, but our room was already ready. Very comfortable and quiet.

Dear Rainer Thank you for taking the time to post a review on us. Yes, 68.7 meters from the arrivals hall ensures a quick arrival and then some much needed peace and quiet. We always try to prioritize our early arrivals to give you as much time as possible to experience our lovely hotel. Hope it won't be too long before your next visit. Kind Regards Vera Jackson Guest Relations Manager

Very convenient

Posted Feb 9, 2014
Pros: Quietness in the room, taxi availability any time
Cons: Since its airport hotel or at least connected to the International airport, they should be flexible in their checkin and out time.
Location: Near the airport and so its good when connecting, but watch the checkin and out time, you might be required to pay 2 nights for one evening
Arrived and room was ready, and throughout it was a very pleasant stay
