Stayed overnight while in transit to CapeTown. They have a free airport shuttle (ignore all offers and head to the back of the nearby Intercontinental Hotel to find it). It's around a ten minute ride. Our family room was large and well equipped with two good working showers. The restaurant area was fine and the breakfast buffet was good. Certainly... More

We stayed here the bright prior our flight, and it was great. The rooms were clean and very well decorated. The hotel itself is very nice, with aviation memorabilia, and the staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was good too! They had free Wi-Fi which was a plus!

As most travellers know, don't go to Joburg unless you have to (due to security reasons). I had to stay there 5 nights over the course of 3 weeks for transit overnights during our 4 weeks in South Africa (flights in and out of Joburg) with my 2 kids (21 and 19 yrs old). Hotel has tight security, decent rooms,... More

I had the privledge to stay for 2 nights at this venue last month when I travlled to Johannesburg for a photoshoot. The rooms are comfortable and spacious with air-conditioning, telephone and TV. Wifi is also available on request. Try not to get a room on the road as they can be a bit noisy especially in the early morning... More

This area in Kempton Park is dodgy, but I never felt unsafe at the hotel. Good security and locked parking facilities. A great hotel for a stay over when flying from OR Tambo. There is a shuttle service that drops off and collects every half an hour. Boutique style hotel with spacious room and nice dining room. Like any new... More

Good wifi but boring part is having to log in all the time you want to use it. Efficient shuttle service to airport. Good breakfast on offer buffet Cleaners must have consistent times so there is minimum disturbance. More utensils in rooms eg plates for use with mocrowave cutlery as well. Good dstv channels. Very professional.

I stayed here twice in 2013 on layovers. OK shuttle service, you have to walk through the airport parking garage to catch the shuttle. The second stay, my room overlooked a street, and there was a loud conversation which seemed to go on for hours. There are better places to stay but this place will do in a bind.

We stayed there after our flight from the USA before driving to Madikwe Safari the next morning. The Van for transportation was full so had to wait for the next one but it was about 20 minutes and not a big deal. The Hotel Staff are extremely nice. The rooms were inexpensive so we stayed there because it was just... More

It was ok. -It is definitely convenient since it is close to the airport but there's nothing else around it so you have to drive at least 15 minutes to go to any restaurants/shops. -The restaurant in the hotel isn't bad but nothing amazing. -Even though the wifi was free, it was terrible- spotty and very slow. Really not even... More

We stayed for one night before flying back to Cape Cape Town and was very surprised how good the Aviator was as it was picked mainly as a reasonable option. The food was good as we had an evening meal there, the breakfast was also goof. Staff very helpful.
