This is not a good airport hotel - this is a really great hotel that happens to be located at an airport. Literally steps from the international terminal, really good restaurant (where to can somehow sit outside across a small street from terminal and be surrounded by green without smelling exhaust fumes or hearing honking horns). Rooms are large with...

Having stayed here several times, we can say this is the place you want to be after a long intercontinental flight. After traveling out of Europe, 12 hours + and arriving late at night at Joburg airport, you're home away from home in literally a minute walk from the airport. The reception area is quite small in comparison to the...

The hotel is less than a one minute walk from international arrivals (do not go up or down the escalators) walk straight outside to the entrance of the hotel. While my stay was short (less than 7 hours), the service was great, the room was quite/comfortable and the food at the restaurant was much better than I expected. Note -...

I've stayed here on 2 occasions and it's very close to the airport and Gautrain...mere metres, friendly staff, extremely clean but when you need something specific it's hard to get it done consistently. We never received our promised fruit platter after many promises and our bed was made up differently most nights after requesting a top sheet each day. Was...

Dear Aussiedodo Thank you for taking the time to post feedback following from your recent stay with us.

Stayed here 1 night and was impressed at the service. The receptionist was quick, and staff helped us get to our room. We also rented their driver for 1.5 hours who was knowledgeable and very friendly!!!! It is located in the Airport, however the signage is a bit confusing to find.

It is truly a conveniently located hotel. If you fly out early morning, it is the place to stay. The bar/lounge area is fine and the restaurant surprisingly good for an airport hotel. I had excellent lamb-chops and a rather nice draft beer. The rooms are of a nice size and tastefully decorated. Friendly and well trained staff gives them...

The Intercon is a splendid property adjacent to the Arrivals Hall at OR Tambo. While not quite sure what to expect, the hotel turns out to be a quiet sanctuary that was perfect for an overnight stop between game reserve expeditions to the north.
