InterContinental Johannesburg Sandton Towers
Ranked #7 of 46 Hotels in Sandton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 July 2017

The hotel location is ideal as there are many restaurants and shops very close by, including the train goes from the airport to within a block of the hotel. The hotel is connected by a walkway to a shopping mall with several dinning options from the foot court to some nice eateries. Very safe area to visit.

Room Tip: All the rooms are terrific, not a bad location on the property

If you are in transit in Johanesburg for a night or couple of days and want a place to relax and shop this is ideal.

Rooms are dated and Air Con needs an upgrade but otherwise ok.

Like the shops next door and lots of local restaurants.

Easily reachable by train from the airport are the very welcoming facilities from Intercontinental in Johannesburg, Sandton. Very nice rooms well above traffic noise, and for those with access to the business lounge at the 27th floor - feels a bit like an Eagle's nest. Excellent service, specifically grateful to Mr. Nakedi from the staff.

Thank you for your posting on Tripadvisor.

Your positive comments will be shared with the team especially the team on the Clubfloor and Steven. I am glad that we were able to live up to your expectations as Club Floor (business Lounge) was a focus area.

Look forward to your next stay.

Hotel is tired and needs upgrading. Air Conditioning in suites noisy and don't regulate temp as requested.
Access to International plugs for appliances very restrictive. Club lounges very too small to cope, in fact smallest club lounge ever accessed. Range of snacks very poor.
Great location but very tired.

Am a Royal Ambassador with IHG as I stay at Intercons globally and first time here at Sandton (normally stay at the Palazzo Montecasino) but hey thought I'd give it a try.

Upgraded to a suite, large but showing signs of neglect (tatty furniture), door handle fell off, shaver socket not working, housekeeping failed to show up (had to prompt) and why do so many hotels (such as this) have no power outlets by the bed - drives me mad not being able to charge my phone next to me at night! The Bose sound system is a nice touch but only if you have an old iPhone (non lightening) so just an extra ornament!

The Club Lounge is rather odd, a triangle overhanging the 27th floor that is rather small and noise from below permeates up! One irritation, no vodka both nights, they wouldn't get a bottle from the bar as they "club lounge" would have to pay for it???? Remind my benefits of Club Lounge, none here for me.

Not that impressed in the IHG scheme of things hence only three stars.
