well situated in the heart of Sandton. Once in the hotel everything at Sandton City or Square is within walking distance. Brown and black granite, Koi alongside the dining table, and a neck stretching view to the atrium ceiling. Dont leave before a long drink at the bar. All in all world class.

Room Tip: the higher the floorthe better the view

Unfortunately, we were only in Johannesburg for one night... it was a late flight in and an early start the next day......
But coming from bush...and going to the bush again - it was the perfect place to relax, rest, and get refreshed....
The rooms were nice, large, clean, and well decorated.... The staff was friendly and helpful.... Checking in was a snap...
The continental breakfast was incredible... visually and delectable. Beautiful outdoor space to enjoy a drink and the sunset.....
And the location - close to everything within a safe walking distance......

I stay at this hotel on business regularly. The rooms are very nice 5 star standard. The staff are friendly and the buffet breakfast was pretty good. The gym was above average for a hotel, great for a leg work out. Only thing I have to complain about this hotel is the piano in the lobby. The sound of this affects all the rooms and if you are trying to get some rest while this is playing it can be quite frustrating. Other than that it was pretty good. I would stay here again in future.

Recently stayed for 3 nights at the Intercontinental hotel at Sandton. I have been to South Africa number of times but never stayed at Sandton and I must that that this is a beautiful place with connectivity to trains, shopping area and good restaurants nearby. Place is clean and well maintained. I wish they had some more vegetarian dishes at the morning breakfast. Staff was good and courteous. It is a costly place and suited for business travelers.

I am delighted that you enjoyed your recent stay with us and have noted that you would like a larger vegetarian selection on our breakfast buffet. However, I do trust that I will have the pleasure of welcoming you back again in the not too distant future.

Fabulous location in the heart of Jo'burg opposite Mandela Square and connected to the conference centre, shopping mall and the Sandton Hotel which has a lovely pool deck restaurant. Garth Shnier and his team cook up some great food too. Highly recommended

We stayed over one night recently at this hotel on our way from Sydney to France. Overall the hotel was good. The business center was under construction and the lifts were playing up but the room was fine and the rest of the hotel okay. Not brand new and not flash. Just a good business hotel or a stop over hotel. Breakfasts were good and the staff professional and helpful throughout our stay. Did not eat any other meals in the hotel so cannot comment.

Room Tip: * Ask for room with good outlook as some of the rooms overlook building works.

I have been staying at this hotel for many years and always excited to return. The staff is friendly, professional and will go the extra mile for you. Internet is probably above average for Africa in general. It is located in a very safe area with plenty of shops and restaurants. The rooms are above average, clean and kept up to date. If you are looking for a Safari, the Concierge can arrange one to a number of locations - with the advantage of saving thousands on booking a Safari from the States (I have enjoyed countless excursions). When visiting local shops or restaurants, the people couldn't be nicer or accommodating.
