InterContinental Johannesburg OR Tambo Airport
Ranked #1 of 26 Hotels in Kempton Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Stayed here twice in the last fortnight due to early morning flights in and out of Johannesburg. You literally walk across the road and you are at the airport. Less that 100 mtrs. It's very quite, no noise from the airport at all. Rooms are good size and clean. They have an indoor rooftop pool, which you can watch the planes land and take off. Gym, steam room and spa all on the same level as the pool. Ordered room service which was very well priced and very good quality.

Stayed: November 2017, travelled as a couple

Despite a long checkin and construction in the lobby, this is the best hotel when having a short stay in Jo'burg. We will absolutely stay here again, the restaurant is pretty good as well, especially the breakfast.

After a diverted flight that caused us to miss our connection in Johannesburg, we were greeted at the Intercontinental at the Airport with a generous welcome by Tshepo and Lebo at Reception. This was perhaps the best Intercontinental Hotel we have stayed in for many years. We were invited to a reception for guests where we met the wonderful Head Chef, Yoshan Naidu, who provided delicious samples of what is available in his restaurant hotel. We sampled the house pinotage and enjoyed conversations with other guests and the General Manager, Samantha Clingham, who was extremely welcoming. Unlike other Airport hotels, our room offered luxurious finishing inclusions, including a decanter of port. Our dinner was perfectly prepared by the Chef, accommodating our allergies. Vongani attended to us perfectly in the restaurant.

Beautiful hotel at the airport. This a a luxury hotel so is pricey, but worth it. You roll your bag out the door across the walkway and you are in the airport. Fantastic restaurant and impeccable staff. The rooms are luxurious. Highly recommended if you need to catch an early flight on a stopover.
