We arrived very tired after a long 15 hour flight from Sydney. We waited about 20 minutes for the shuttle, and check in was a bit slow, but once we got to our room, everything was good. We had an executive room ( slightly larger than the standard) with a separate bath and shower. The room was quiet, you could... More

We stayed at this hotel in November of last year for a quick 1 night stopover in Johannesburg before going to Cape Town. The hotel is extremely close to the airport and offers a free shuttle to the airport. Rooms were quiet and we never heard a plane, maybe because the room faced the other side and our room looked...

Comfortable hotel close to the airport, for transit passengers, as I am when I use it, but still far enough away, even when you can see the planes. Staff are friendly and efficient and always there to assist. The shuttle service to and from the hotel every 30mins, makes waiting at either the airport or the hotel easy and drivers... More

This aviation-themed hotel surpasses all expectations of a bland, boring airport hotel. The super-friendly, smiley staff create a really cool vibe, and the odd aircraft bits and pieces – bent propellers, air-cooled radial engines, old aeroplane tyres and enormous aviation maps of Jo’burg and Cape Town as floor coverings in the reception and restaurant areas – really make the place...
