InterContinental Johannesburg OR Tambo Airport (Johannesburg, South Africa)

5 Case Rating


About 5 minutes walk from arrivals at JNB airport- very easy walk just literally up some escalators
outside of terminal building.


Quite a luxurious airport hotel room with some thought put into the decor – beige post modern African design in this decent size room that offers a large double bed (possibly king size) firm but comfortable bedding and nice pillows. There is a wooden glass top working desk with a large leather office chair, comfortable with a nice lamp and some international plugs (US/UK/SA)- modern alarm clock and hands free phone on top. There is also a soft arm chair to watch the TV that also includes a DVD player (plenty of satellite channels from SA, UK and USA) as well as pay-per-view movies , trouser press, glass round table next to arm chair for ones drink, a tall lamp and bedside table – nice lighting as well as bed mounted flexi reading lights.
The mini bar is in a luxury wooden cabinet itself that includes a Nespresso coffee machine, kettle and ice bucket and full set of red, white and champagne glasses. The mini bar is quite comprehensive with many miniature liquors and spirits as well as plenty soft drinks, chocolates and crisps.
The bathroom is decorated in a large marble modern finish with a separate large deep bath and huge shower room that could accommodate two people. A full set of amenities branded as Agraria with body lotion, shampoo , conditioner well as full overnight kit such as dental and shaver sets. Temperature control is digital and there is also a safe, hair dryer, nice robes and slippers. The room is in impeccably clean, near perfect condition and is meeting the 5 star standard.


On the top floor is a nice but small pool, inexpensive SPA service and a steam room in each changing room. There is also a very modern gym offering modern cardio equipment with TV’s on them. The main highlight however is the view of the whole airfield- great for plane spotters! On the ground floor is a restaurant, a smokers lounge with cigars, a business centre with 4 computers and a printer and various conference rooms. WIFI is available throughout and is complimentary, password for multiple devices.


Staff are very friendly and up to 5 star standard- was even escorted room with a smooth check-in and check out.
Overall a very nice hotel, a minor criticism would be that there is no outside area to say sunbathe between flights and enjoy the South african sun but everything else is perfect in this 5 star airport hotel.
