InterContinental Johannesburg Sandton Towers
Ranked #5 of 46 Hotels in Sandton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 August 2014

This Intercon gives you what you'd expect from the brand - nicely appointed rooms with plenty of space, an attentive and friendly staff, etc. The club area was a bit disappointing though compared to other hotels within the brand that I've stayed at. Good location, with plenty of good restaurant and bar options within a 5 minute walk.
Concierge staff was outstanding. Helped me line up activities, asked what types of things I was interested in, and then made suggestions based on the type of travel I like.

I stayed at this hotel for one night with my partner. It's just up the street from where we live but we just wanted to get away. I liked the room we were in and the bathroom too but it wasn't amazing. We ordered room service and I can't say I enjoyed the food. The breakfast buffet was average. Overall I might choose a different hotel in the area for this type of experience.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your recent stay with us. We are sorry to hear that you had a less than pleasant experience with room service, the food in general and the breakfast buffet and regret that this impacted on your stay, as we have just launched new menus in the hotel. However, I do trust that I will have the pleasure of welcoming you back again for a more than "ok" experience!

Had a car arranged via the hotel, driver was waiting when I got to the arrivals hall, cost around £45, well worth it especially considering early morning arrival. Quick and efficient check in despite arriving early on a Sunday. Room was excellent, quiet, comfortable, clean and included a dvd player, a coffee machine and an ipod dock...superb. Bed was first rate, shower was excellent. All staff were very polite, friendly and helpful. I stayed 6 nights and can't fault anything. Food was very good and not overpriced. Also arranged a car via hotel for return trip to airport, which was there right on time. All in all an excellent stay. Thanks to all at the hotel and well done

The Intercontinental Sandton is an excellent choice for those visiting Johannesburg. This hotel is located in the best tourist area of Johannesburg and I highly recommend this property. The hotel is right across the road from Nelson Mandela Square which provides numerous shopping and dining choices.
The rooms I viewed were clean, well kept and what you would expect from this calibre of hotel. My room was superb. The bed was very comfortable and the bedding appeared to be virtually new. The rooms are all equipped with Nespresso machines and a variety of coffees for the coffee junkies out there.
The gym is large and above average. It is equipped with many cardio and weight machines. The pool is located outside and near the gym.
I utilized the restaurant for breakfast each day and found the food to be excellent.
Overall I found the staff at this property, from check in to check out, to be top notch. Hotel staff and management deserve credit for their professionalism and for running a very well organized hotel.

The lobby appeared very busy when I arrived but I was quickly helped to register and was in my room in no time. My room is well appointed and comfortable and I had a very good first night sleep, which was a pleasant surprise after flying for 18hrs.

All the staff I have encountered are very friendly and helpful and I would look forward to a return visit, given the chance.

I did a little walk-about and had fun discovering Nelson Mandela Square and the Sandton City shopping centre. All very conveniently located close to the hotel.

After recent stays at more modest venues in Tana River, Kenya, this was an absolute treat. Notwithstanding the relativity, this is an excellent hotel in every aspect.
Location, fine and creative food, luxurious rooms, friendly and attentive staff and, the most powerful shower I've come across, perhaps they only comparable parallel with some parts of the Tana River.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights in the VIP section top floor.
Hotel staff were well clued up and very helpful and friendly.
Enjoyed the SkyBridge access to Sandton City and the easy walk to Nelson Mandela Square.
The rooms were clean with everything you need. Enjoyed the little touches of the shower caps and most of all more than enough water bottles in the room. Great stay overall and would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Top floor obviously gets more wind, and the whistling can keep you up at night.
