Review of InterContinental Johannesburg O.R. Tambo Airport

Corina Caplan

Very convenient and clean. Not the customer service we received in other hotels and AC wasn't working properly. It was just ok a place to rest while you wait for your flight.

Review of InterContinental Johannesburg O.R. Tambo Airport

Marc Thomas

So convenient while you are in flights transit ! Very good food even if the service was slow (over 30 minutes to wait for a drink in the evening or for breakfast's eggs.) The waiters were very active. May be they are understaffed ?
