A cheap way to sleep in Johannesburg to take a flight in the other day. The lobby and transportation to airport is good and the restaurant is very nice, but the rooms are cold and very noisily by the other apartments. The neighboorhood is not good and if you to go to the city it's a lttle complicated,but the price... More

The hotel is about 10 mins by a free hotel shuttle from the bus terminal in front of the intercontinental hotel. The prices are very reasonable and the ambience of the hotel was great! The owners did a great job to recreate the feeling that one is in the aviator movie! The receptionist who took care of us when we... More

After 23 or so hours of travel from New York, it was great to see the Aviator Hotel's bus waiting for us at the OR Tambo airport bus terminal, and even better to check into a sleek room with a comfortable bed to collapse upon. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, including one front-desk clerk who raced up... More

A great place to stay when you have to overnight near OR Tambo. Although I noticed that the shuttle is free we had our own transport to manoeuvre in and around Joburg. We had a nice family room, in fact two adjoining rooms for us and for the kids. The meals were equally great and the staff were very friendly.... More

We were surprised to find this fairly inexpensive hotel to be so nice. The public areas and rooms are nicely designed and meet all your requirements for sure. The bed is great. The restaurant has a cafeteria atmosphere, but the food is quite good and the waiters are very friendly. Safe and spacious parking.

We needed a place near the airport to overnight twice in a week, and this was convenient. Not a great part of town, but 10 mins by shuttle. From the hotel, shuttle was fine, but waiting at the airport it took 20 mins the first time and over an hour the second. Best to call as soon as you have... More

Free shuttle which took hassle out of finding a taxi. Room was large, clean, all things you need for a layover, without spending a fortune. The restaurant also had great food choices at very affordable prices and breakfast included was also fabulous. My only complaint was when i emailed about airport pick up, not knowing about shuttle bus, i got... More

We stayed here one night for transit. We were going to book at another airport hotel, but they increased their price for that night due so we decided to stay here instead. Wasn't a good choice. We got picked up at the shuttle stop at the Airport. Got to the hotel, reception was nice, check-in was fast. There's a bit... More

The Aviator was a very well priced, clean, comfortable overnight stay on our way through Johannesburg. The restaurant was great, good food and good prices. We only had a quick overnight stay between flights but they had shuttle service to the mall and the airport of course. Very efficient and well run, we didn't have to wait long at all... More
