“Unique Air Theme”
Reviewed April 30, 2011

I had a night's lay over, took the complementary shuttle and checked in post dinner time. I had used bookings.com and had booked the room just three hours prior to checking in, and still had got an excellent rate. The hotel has a very unique and consistent air travel theme, and a fantastic touch of humor, right through the common areas and even inside the room - a oxygen face mask in the loo was a weirdly funny touch. Don't want to give out the suspense ;-) The rooms are very comfy and the location is very useful. Would have been a more complete experience if the room charges had included breakfast. I got a complementary day's internet voucher too! :-)

It was a brief trip but everything about this hotel was great. The service was friendly, the atmosphere eclectic and the grounds were very nice. You would have never known it was so close to the hotel. My room faced the airport, and I never heard a noise. Great place!

We stayed here one night before leaving OR Tambo airport. The hotel is only about a year old and has a modern vibe, with an aviation theme. The staff were pleasant enough. The rooms aren’t the largest and the layout is a bit odd with the sink and shower right out in the open by the bed (at least there is a partial curtain), but it is comfortable and fairly quiet for an airport hotel. The shuttle service is appreciated and the lobby has a cool vibe with a flight simulator and free water/coffee. We would certainly stay here again.

Stayed at the OR after a long flight from the united States. A short distance from the airport. The rooms were on the smallish side but the beds and pillows were really comfortable, the room clean, and the restaurant served tasty reasonably priced food. The front desk staff was very helpful getting our wifi devices connected.

This hotel is very close to the airport. The rates are very reasonable, the hotel is modern, and all the facilities were in excellent shape. The food was very good for the hotel category and not expensive at all.

This hotel is an excellent choice if you have a flight early in the morning. I would definitely stay here again.

We ended up stumbling across this hotel as we were delayed in Joberg for 2 days due to a missed flight connection. An airline put us up here as an 'obligation of their service' so we had low expectations, but on arriving, we found a great hotel, lovely service, heaps of character, all minutes from the airport, with regular half hourly shuttles to and from the airport. Whilst staying near any airport rarely does any city justice, we could easily get into joberg for sight seeing, and for a short stop over it was a very convenient choice.

The entire theme of the Hotel is 'air travel' with heaps of kookie decorations, crates, engine parts, quotes on walls and even a flight simulator in the lobby area you can play with! All the services you would expect from a high standard city hotel, such as room service, wireless internet, restaurant, bar, pool, gym ect.

The staff were all extremely helpful, despite being beside an airport and a little noisy, the pool area was still fantastic, and very relaxing. Breakfast was by far the best we had throughout our 3 weeks in africa. Everything about this hotel made an otherwise very inconventient jilt in our travel plans, extremely comfortable
