This was my second stay at the Intercontinental OR Tambo, and I was as impressed as I was on the first stay. If you are using it as an overnight before or after a flight, the location and proximity to the airport simply cannot be beaten. Unlike a lot of airport hotels, there are no shuttles to bother with and the walk from the terminal can be measured in paces and not meters. It’s excellent from that standpoint.
Beyond its location, the hotel offers a compact size, with enough rooms but not so many that it overwhelms. The restaurant and bar are opened round-the-clock, so, no matter what time-zone your body thinks it is in, a meal awaits. Staff are friendly, helpful, and glad to lend a hand.
This property gets an extra TripAdvisor dot from me, half of which is for the extra help the concierge offered and the other half is because I was able to get an excellent meal at one in the morning, after the long journey from The States.
I highly recommend the Intercontinental at OR Tambo and look forward to returning again.
