InterContinental Johannesburg OR Tambo Airport
Ranked #1 of 26 Hotels in Kempton Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 July 2014

I‘ve stayed in the InterContinental Johannesburg OR Tambo Airport overnight during my flight from Lusake to Hoedspruit on June 26th 2014.

It is a perfect Airport Hotel.

Easy to reach by foot - no need to look (and wait) for shuttle busses.

Large rooms in very good condition and with everything you need - completely quiet, comfortable beds, lots of space for the luggage, a bathroom with separate shower and toilet …

The bar is a perfect place for some drinks and a late night snack.

And last but not least all the people that work there are exceptionally friendly.

Intercontinental Hotels are always a good choice and I can absolutely recommend this hotel.

1st class operation with best access at JNB. I little pricey, but you get what you pay for (doorman takes your bags to airline check-in). For the same money and if you have a bit more time, stay at the many 1st class hotels in Sandton, but if you need the convenience of the airport, this is the best hands down.

The restaurant "Quills" was quite good and imaginative for dinner.

We had booked this hotel for one night as we were going to Botswana returning to Jo'burg then flying out up to Hoedspruit. Prior to arriving we realised we would need to leave some of our luggage behind for the Botswana leg of the trip, we rang the hotel to see if it would be possible to leave it with them and pick it up when we stayed over, not a problem, most helpful. On our arrival back, luggage was all safe and sound, had a lovely room, and given that it is steps from the airport you couldn't hear a sound, we had an evening meal and breakfast in the Quills restaurant both of a very high standard, all the staff were more than helpful. So much so that when we still had an over luggage issue, they allowed us to leave a bag with them for 10 days and pick it up on our return to Jo'burg (at no cost, which is an added bonus). On our return we picked up our bag and decided to have lunch in Quills Restaurant rather than wait in the airport for the check in to open, again a nice meal, in peaceful and comfortable surroundings, I would definitely use this hotel again, and would certainly use the restaurant prior to check in. Very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to an executive room, very nice and no noise from airport, I'm guessing that al...

We were very surprised at the level of comfort at the hotel. The rooms are wonderfully quiet... Both from hotel noises and aircraft . Every single item we could think of was supplied. The food for dinner and breakfast was of a very high standard. The best surprise was the roof top gym- open 24 hours and with plenty of equipment options. The hotel is directly across the road from arrivals, an easy walk with bags.

Room Tip: Doubt there is any difference

Preparing for a safari in Namibia we came to Johannesburg for two nights before departing for Windhoek. Of course, the convenience of simply walking outside the airport door and looking directly at the Hotel Intercontinental is a first welcoming event. Then, being welcomed by the staff throughout the checkin process is another warm part of the event. Going to the comfortable room for a pleasant, quiet, night's rest is a major part. And, in the morning and in the evening, to have the delightful breakfast buffet and the truly fine dinner menu with its beautiful presentations and delicious tastes, is the wrap-up for this overall welcoming event. An unexpected bonus was the opportunity to speak with the Executive Chef as he came through the dining room so I could express my appreciation for the superb vegetarian dish he had prepared. We have stayed here before and will stay here again when we next come to or through Johannesburg. Further, having the sparkling clean Metro come right to the airport and, thus, the hotel, from the city is yet another plus for this first quality hotel.

Stayed one night in June 2014 en route to East London. Like others have commented, would gladly have stayed longer. This is a great hotel! Rooms are beautiful and so comfortable. It is so easy to get to the hotel after an international arrival--clear Customs and then it's a 5-10 minute walk to the hotel. Didn't stay long enough to venture into other areas of the hotel (gym, pool, restaurants) but expect they would be equally impressive. Will definitely stay at this hotel again!

We were very pleasantly surprised at the level of comfort, attention to detail, fine dining and hospitality this hotel provided. If you are staying the night in Johannesburg before or after travel, I highly recommend this property. We were a large group of 15 people, and all of our needs were met with a smile. It is literally steps from the international terminal, which is also a bonus... Especially after we flew for 15 hours!
We made a reservation for our large party for dinner. We were soon contacted by the restaurant manager to see how he could assist. He helped us craft a custom menu... Then he surprised us by printing out a beautiful personal menu for everyone. He even stayed well past his shift to make sure we were satisfied. Should we ever return to this beautiful country, I can assure you the InterContinental will be on our list!
