Was a little worried based on other reviews on no windows, etc. but rooms were super nice, clean and a welcoming sight after air travel. there are no windows but there are curtains that make it feel like there is so i didn't have a problem. Only thing was that it is kind of expensive.
Even after booking a room at the Intercontinental INCLUSIVE OF BREAKFAST, the reception didn't seem to have this information on their system.

have to say that this is not the first time that this has happened on Expedia bookings. The fault lies with Expedia.
Needed an inexpensive place to stay near the airport for our first night in Joburg and found this one on Expedia. All in all, it was an excellent choice, as it was clean, secure,well kept and a great introduction to rustic South Africa. Although we weren't backpacking, this would be an excellent place for backpackers to stay (kind of like an upscale hostel)
The hotel is 6 minutes away from the Johannesburg International Airport with a shuttle that runs every 30 minutes (@15 mins before and after from the airport location (easy to find...inquire at the information desk).
The staff, especially Happy was above and beyond expectations. We stayed there on 3 separate nights in the past month and received consistent treatment each time. The hotel is up to par to any 5 star hotel in North American Standards, enormous rooms, beautiful showers and comfortable beds with a large breakfast buffet but at a much lower price.
We traveled about 3 weeks throughout SA and this hotel room was by far the best value for our money.
