Good Hotel to stay at between connecting flights Nov 04, 2010
Strengths: Located 500 meters from the O.R. Tambo International Airport

Weakness: Not much to do around the hotel, only good if you are staying here as a stopover before taking an onward flight

The Southern Sun O.R. Tambo Airport Hotel, Johannesburg is located barely 500 meters from the O.R. Tambo Airport and is very convenient as a stopover when you are taking a connecting flight the next day. The rates start from ZAR 1000 per night non-inclusive of breakfast and are more economical as compared to other hotels in the vicinity such as the Intercontinental or the Protea Hotel O. R. Tambo.

The best part of staying at the Southern Sun O.R. Tambo Airport Hotel, Johannesburg is that they run a complimentary Airport Shuttle to and from the Airport for 24 hours every 15 minutes. The pick-up point for the Shuttle is outside the International Arrivals area immediately behind the Intercontinental Hotel. If you have any difficulty finding this pickup point, then walk over to the Intercontinental Hotel and ask the guard there and he will be able to direct you. This shuttle bus service will save you ZAR 100 which a Taxi will charge to get you to the hotel even though it is located only 500 meters away from O.R. Tambo Airport.

The staff at the hotel is very friendly and the check in process is very quick and easy. The room is good and well equipped, the only missing thing is a mini bar / fridge. However the décor of the room at the Southern Sun O.R. Tambo Airport Hotel, Johannesburg is very dull as compared to the other Southern Sun Group Hotels which I have stayed in. The internet rates on offer at this hotel are much cheaper than most hotels in South Africa and they charge ZAR 50 per hour as opposed to ZAR 100 per hour charged by most hotels.

Within walking distance of the International terminal, the Intercontinental at the Johannesburg International Airport is an extremely convenient place to stay during overnight layovers.

Exhausted from my long flight, I was pleased to see that there were clearly marked signs in the airport which led me easily to the hotel. The staff at teh Intercontinental was lovely. The rooms are VERY clean. Mine had a king bed, a small table with chairs, a tv, mini bar, coffee station, desk and chair, trunk, and HUGE bathroom suite including a shower and separate bathtub.

It's a bit pricey (about $300 US/night), but you can't beat the convenient location to the airport, cleanliness and safety. I would stay here again if I had another overnight layover.
