For an overnight in Johannesburg, this hotel is adequate. Hot shower with good water pressure, brightly lit bathroom, heat in the room, fast WiFi. The big surprise (in a positive way) was the restaurant. I wasn't expecting much but they had wood fire pizza which was good.
My only issue was after I booked online, I immediately sent an email asking where the airport transfer pick up location was. I had to email them 4 times over the course of 2 weeks for them to respond with a jpeg map attached. To save future guests the grief:
The airport shuttle runs on a schedule. Head to the bus terminal outside the airport, across the road behind the Intercontinental. You should see a sign with the schedule, once every half hour.
