"InterContinental O.R. Tambo review"

1 night Arrived 24 Sep 2016
"After a long overnight flight it was a great relief to find exactly how close to the arrivals hall the hotel was, especially as I was on crutches at the time.

It was exactly what we needed and we will use it again in the future." See all these reviews: 11n in South Africa

"Intercontinental is great"

1 night Arrived 13 Dec 2013
"Great hotel. Well placed for the airport. Extremely helpful and I was able to leave a bag here so I wasn't overweight for the helicopter to Azura. Good rooms.

Only slight disappointment was the swimming pool which was a bit small but perfectly adequate" See all these reviews: 6n in Namibia; 3n in Mozambique; 2n in South Africa; 2n in Zimbabwe
