This hotel is a great stay, not luxurious, but at a great price, $68. This hotel price includes a full scale delicious breakfast, shuttle to and from O R Tambo, great porter help and security. The rooms are clean and not very large, but certainly adequate for a one night stay. We fly from the states every year for a... More

The Aviator is one of our favourite places to stay because it is so convenient when arriving late in Johannesburg. They have a complimentary shuttle that operates between the hotel and the airport, meaning you can save on car hire. Mostly, we have to leave early before breakfast, but this last trip, we had time for breakfast and were pleasantly... More

It's been a few years since I stayed at The Aviator, but it still represents very good value accommodation, especially for the business traveler. The rooms are comfortable and designed with work in mind (multiple sockets for most plug types, enough desk area). Breakfast at $10 is good value. The buffets at lunch and dinner became a bit familiar after... More

The location is very convenient to the airport. The staff is friendly and helpful. Wifi was pretty good, all things considered. Food was good. My overall impression is that this hotel is fine for the cost, and I would definitely stay there again. The shuttle driver went out of his way to accommodate our rather large group on more than...

It is a nice bed, good shower and nice restaurant But its quite complicated to drive there and the neighbourhood has not much to offer They offer free parking, I used it as a base to explore the parks and Pretoria also because it is very close to the airport

I stayed at hotel during a overnight and it was ok! The hotel has a limited wifi (password and time), has a restaurant, pool and a small gym. The room was clean but bathrooms with some problems (old and with a shower broken).

We stayed here only for 3 hours during a stop over. We chose this after our bad experience with other hotels close to airport. It is a decent accommodation for a casual stop over or flight delays. Nothing about the hotel is strikingly good. The rooms are not at all sound proof and we could literally hear other guests talking... More

This hotel is in a bit of a "dark" area and apart from that, my experience was somewhat dark as well. The shower needs a proper clean up as there are black algae on the wall tiles. Rest of the room also a bit dusty. The "restaurant has an A la Carte menu but when I wanted to order, I... More

I wouldn't stay here again for the following reasons. The buffet evening meal was cold and it was bbq'd right outside our room so the smell wasn't pleasant for us. (This was at least 1 hour before the restaurant opened and the food put into chafing dishes). Luckily for us we had returned to our room before there was a... More
