Holiday Inn near JNB Airport?

I will just spending one night in JNB before contining on to Botswana. Has anyone stayed at this hotel? I need a hotel that is near the airport just for one nights sleep, how is the Holiday Inn? Any advise would be helpful. Thanks.

We just came back from a safari a few weeks ago (i'm eventually going to put up a trip report) but we stayed their and its fine. Basic holiday inn. Just hop on the shuttle located near the int'l terminal. Its only a 3-5 minte ride. Enjoy.

There are actually two Holiday Inns near the airport, one on the grounds and one a mile or so away. I've stayed at both and far prefer the one on the grounds. Both are acceptable, but I believe the closer one to be nicer than the other. ZZ

Thanks for the info. Novsafari, where did you go on your safari? If Botswana, what trip did you take? I am taking "The Botswana Explorer" 10 day serviced camping safari through CCAfrica.

If you are in International transit and don't want or need to move from the airport, there is a transit hotel within the airport. I haven't used it myself, but it is a hotel in the Protea Hotel Group so should be fine. The URL has recently changed and it's a fairly long one, so go to the homepage www.proteahotels.com and select Transit from the hotel drop-down list.

Near JNB airport:
inside airport (just cross the road) - Intercontinental (more expensive/ very nice and confortable).
If you get the mini bus (4 minutes) you can stay in Holiday INN (less expensive)

The current rates for that Protea Transit hotel seem to be R276 single and R460 double.
