GREAT

Only stayed for a night but this hotel is great! Had a problem getting to the hotel from the airport as we missed the shuttle bus but it came back for us eventually. Breakfast was so good, buffet style, eat as much as you can. If I ever need a hotel in Joburg, I would stay there. Highly recommended.

Very Poor

The only thing going for this hotel is it's location ie close to the airport. The restaurant had a menu but only pizza and sandwiches were available from it and the buffet did not look good

In the air

Aviator is convenient to JNB airport and the hotel bus was good for picking up and returning to airport - once you know where to go. Room was clean and convenient tho the chairs in room are too light, plus carpet well is too deep or carpet too thin, easy to catch and go off balance. Had no problem with noise even tho close to runway and a major road. Staff all helpful and friendly. Buffets good. Reception got me taxis OK. Recommend use ATM's and exchange at airport as NO facilities at or near hotel.I stayed here on way to and from Zambia, Nov, Dec 2013

Serves its purpose as a stopover from the Airport

Nicely situated close to Oliver Tambo (Joburg) airport. A comfortable and clean Hotel. The good - Transfer bus will run on que and it is only a short trip to the airport. Not so great- Only one person behind the reception counter to handle clients and answer the phone leading to some wasted time. I suppose this is a normal practice in the current world economic climate. Maybe my timing was unfortunate?

Super Flughafenhotel

Für eine Nacht sehr empfehlenswert. Wir hatten zu viert ein Duplexroom mit 2 Baedern. Zimmer war gross, sauber und schön eingerichtet. Personal war freundlich und hilfsbereit. Frühstück war überraschend gut und vielfältig.

great transit stayover

Goed hotel voor kort verblijf ivm transit vluchten. Vlakbij vliegveld, eigen shuttle service, goede kwalitet/prijs verhouding. Omgeving minder boeiend (industrie/bedrijfs zone).
