I stayed here for a week in Jan 2013. For a night its Ok but the small room became a little restrictive after a few days.Its a great shame that bigger windows or even a balcony were not encorporated into the design as the views over the Airfield would make a great attraction and fit in well with the hotels unique aeronatical theme (which is good).
A word of warning re the breakfast and meals - for a simple tea and toast at breakfast "the management" tried to charge for a full cooked breakfast which resulted in an unplesant dispute and remained unresolved throughout my stay. I was also given the wrong food bill on 2 other occasions and had my laundry lost twice!!. Requests and promises to speak to the mananagement failed so I decided to move out and give somewhere else my business for the second weeks work in Joburg. So could do a lot better on the Customer service here Im afraid especially for guests who plan on staying longer than a transit.
