Hey, the rooms are quite good and beds are very comfortable. The breakfast is also well worth it. It's small and family like. Though you do not get a top manager to "meet and greet". It would be easy for such a person to know everyone and it gives a very personalised touch. Just watch for the receipting... I watched... More

On a recent stay in Johannesburg my colleagues booked a room at the Aviator Hotel lured by the attractive photos online and its description as a four star property near the airport. I had stayed with friends and they offered to drive me to the hotel. I had checked online and found an array of appealing pictures of the property.... More

We arrived at Joburg AirPort at night. We were picked up by a transfer from the hotel. When we arrived there we had a grumpy "host" who was more busy with other things than checking us in. The room itself was good and breakfast was as Well. You should be prepared for Some planes flying by throughout the night!

Convenient if you're flying in and out but there are (much) better places. The room was in ned of some TLC, there need to be an extraction fan in the bathroom, as the walls have stains on from all the condensation dripping down them. the bathroom window opens into a small shaft will of cables and plumbing. Food average, but... More

This hotel was a huge disappointment! I booked it through booking.com and in the room description it was clearly stated that it was "soundproofing". What a lie!!!! Do not get me wrong... I do not expect a hotel next to the airport to be extremely quiet. But this was the noisiest room I have ever had in my life. The... More

Dear Dappo I would like to thank you for the review. We would like to apologies for the terrible stay you had with. I can assure you that this is not our standard at all. It is not acceptable for the receptionist to question your opinion at all. I will be addressing this with the receptionist in question. The quality... More

We booked three rooms twice during December and on both times were treated with warm and friendly respect. The staff really make this hotel worth the few difficulties you may encounter. Our tips: The complimentary transfer to the airport leaves on the dot so don't be late! Pick -up at the airport is at quarter past and quarter to the... More

We had to stay overnight in Johannesburg and this hotel was reasonably priced. The airport transfers are every half an hour. the rooms are nothing flash but clean. The restaurant hasn't got a huge menu but for tired travellers it was fine. The breakfast was fabulous. Hot or cold and a huge range to choose from. Wifi was spotty with... More

A beautiful and good hotel with good beds. A nice and fresh shower. The room looks attractive, it reminds me of Americanstyle. You have your own coffee- and tea facilities and there's complimentary water available. Breakfast was tasteful, fresh fruit, yoghurt, sundried fruit and toast. Also great choice in eggs and bacon. The hotel is near the airport, great after... More
