Just average. Efficient shuttle staff. Didn't get assistance with the bags - a bit of a put off. Front desk staff was polite so that was good but the bath tub was old and peeling off at the base. Otherwise all else OK. Not as nice as its portrayed to be.

Free shuttle to/from the airport, a comfortable night's rest after 24 hours of travel, and fulfilling meals. It's a great stay close to the airport with blackout curtains and efficient sound-proof windows, plus the courtyard is a fantastic spot to lounge and get some work or reading done.

A boutique hotel that embraces it's proximity to the airport in Johannesburg. The aviator themed hotel offers a free airport shuttle, a 24 hour bar, excellent linens and a comfortable bed. S.A. and European outlets in the room, friendly staff, and reasonably priced. An inexpensive 5 minute Uber to and from the hotel too.

Very good for the price. Comfortable room and amenities were good considering the cheap price of the room. The guys on the front desk were excellent and I was able to gain access to my room early, which was a blessing as I'd just arrived from a longhaul flight. Only slight disappointment for me was the breakfast. It was expensive...

Seoul, South Korea
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Stayed two nights here to recover from our long flight from Seoul, South Korea. Interconnecting rooms, comfortable beds and good service. Strange arrangement of bathroom - the shower is in the bedroom - but it worked. Breakfast was not included in the room rate and was quite pricey (for South African food prices). Pool was adequate for an airport hotel.

It's the perfect hotel to stay after a long flight from the USA...free shuttle from the airport (ends at 11:00PM) and it's under the Marriott umbrella. The staff is very accommodating and its breakfast has many choices.
