We stayed at the Johannesburg Intercontinental Hotel for a one night layover on our way to Hoedspruit. The hotel was located just outside the door of the airport and a two minute walk across the street. An easy and convenient location when arriving in a foreign country. It also would be perfect for handicap or those with wheelchairs, Upon arrival,...

Dear Julia2949 Thank you for taking the time to post your recent stay with us on TripAdvisor.

The Hotel is very nice, rooms are big and well furbished. Quill restaurant is also good. Nice pool and gym with an astonishing view of the airport. Staff is very amicable but should be better trained to take better care of some details and offer faster services.

One night stay between flights. Of course the hotel is convenient only for airport related stays and out of town programs, since it is quite far from the city. But it is easy to walk in directly from the terminal. Service is friendly and efficient. The room, a club room in our case, special, complete, large, new and perfectly sound...

First, I made my arrangements prior to my trip, I needed 3 rooms for five people and I used their website to make these arrangements. There were a few hiccups on the website, but I worked through them. The hotel is extremely convenient to the international arriving terminal. Upon check-in, our luggage was handled very well by the staff, and...

We only spent one night at the hotel, but was very impressed with the staff, service, and cleanliness. The room was nice and spacious... wasn't loud at all, either. The restaurant downstairs - Quills - was really good also. We had dinner and breakfast and everyone in the party enjoyed their meals... I had to curry chicken for dinner and...

I had to spend the night because I couldn't get on my evening flight to London and next flight wasn't until 7pm the following day. The room was great and the service was even better. Given my situation they gave me a free breakfast and a 3 pm check out time without even asking for any of it.

I believe ours was a club level room. It was spacious, clean, comfortable, and had great amenities. The noise insulation was outstanding. Housekeeping was more than accommodating with extra pillows, extra water, extra chocolates and extra towels. This is not to say we were not adequately supplied, but rather that we were particularly needy. The restaurant for dinner met our...
