good value all round, for both rooms & food & drink - less than a £ for a gin for example! staff attentive, only 3km or so from the airport via hotel shuttle, which is generally punctual - would stay again!

Convenient Stop-Over”
Stayed one night at the Aviator as I was stopping in Johannesburg on the way to go on safari. Friendly staff, were able to provide me with a good meal after a long flight. Special mention to Felicia who was a very attentive server. Free pick up and drop off at O.R. Tambo Airport and much more value for money than the hotels situated at the actual airport itself. Comfortable Bed, good sized shower.

Great location, friendly staff”
A cute aviation themed boutique hotel near the airport with its own compound and a security guard. Friendly and helpful staff, and they will help with shuttles to/from airport and the train station too! Fantastic breakfast and while I didn't use the gym, I saw that it was well equipped. 10/10 recommmend with no hesitation.

always brilliant staying over at this convenient hotel. everything always runs smoothly. this time brought my mom with and she enjoyed it. Just a minor note. but not effect this great place on any way. depends on which person does the pizza's the the value slightly differs. Just check on that its same standard. as the food this time was not as good as previous. but that's it. we'll be back soon. thanks for everything

Lovely if you need to be by the airport.”
This was perfect for us because we needed to be by the airport, but if you want to be in the city it would probably not be the place for you. Rooms are great, bathrooms are great. Pool looked nice but it was the winter so we didn't go in. Gym was alright! Laundry is super expensive so avoid it if you can. Overall a lovely experience.

Alot of people struggle to locate the Bus terminal when they arrive at the airport .”
I thick they should let someone wait at the main arrival with AVIATOR HOTEL written on cardboard showing to the customers, Because the customers always pay extra cost for taxi which is not safe. Thanks

Only stayed here one night when transiting through Johannesburg. Free airport pick up and drop off with van leaving every half hour. Buffet meal represented good value and included breakfast was good. Too cold to use pool and didn't use gym this time but it's there if you need it

Great Airport Hotel!”
I was thoroughly happy with my stay at the Aviator Hotel. The hotel is located conveniently close to the airport and provides free and easy to arrange shuttle transfers. Also, the rooms are both well-appointed and comfortable. The included buffet breakfast was delicious and the staff were polite and spoke good English. Perfect for a night's stay before a long flight!

Good for airport”
Perfectly fine for a stopover. Shuttle time to hotel about 12 minutes. Rooms though smallish are new and modern, clean. Plane noise not an issue after midnight. Restaurant food and menu a bit sub-standard for anything more than a snack.

Perfect hotel for overnight stop near airport”
Located in quiet area, excellent dining, good gym
Only stopped here for one night between flights and hotel is ideal for that. Had couple of meals here and food was surprisingly good. Nice little gym for bit of exercise. Only small pool but it was too cold to use in anyway. Room was fine. Only problem was occasional black out. As I'm not a regular visitor to Jo'burg I'm not sure if this is a problem confined to this hotel or is more widespread.

Fabulous small hotel close to airport”
Efficient shuttle service, fantastic staff, good food
This is a great little stopover hotel just 5 minutes from airport. Very efficient shuttle service. Need to walk out of airport and walk behind the Intercontinental hotel to find the shuttle buses behind. Staff at this hotel are very friendly and helpful. Rooms comfortable with safe, tea and coffee, microwave and fridge (some rooms). Bathroom a bit quirky with see through glass doors. Hotel security very tight with 24 hr security guards on every gate and electric fence around perimeter. Restaurant food good and excellent pizza oven. Good big variety at breakfast buffet. Have stayed here twice.

Good hotel for stopover”
Location and price
This is a good hotel if you intend to stay a night or two due to stopover. Close proximity to airport. The hotel provides free airport shuttle. Check where to board before your trip so that you will not incur unnecessary cost. We were tricked by a dishonest taxi driver and paid a high price for the 5 minutes trip.

I was gladly surprised how reasonable the price of room is . More so how well and efficient the hotel is run. The staffs are so helpful. I stayed one night and after finishing my tour, came back for additional two nights and will use this hotel every time I come to South Africa and will recommend them to all my friends and associates. Breakfast is very generous and service of staffs at the dining hall is exeptional! I hope they franchise this hotel and service every airports in African countries.

Great layover hotel”
The room, the shuttle and the pizza
The first night I spent here, on the way to Mauritius, I was impressed by the service and also the quick transfer from the airport. I assumed it was your typical layover hotel with poor to average reheated food and so didn't take advantage of the breakfast or the restaurant facilities. On my return trip I had another night there before my flight home the next day. This time I thought I'd grab a quick bite in the restaurant. Boy was I surprised to see people digging into roast chicken, steaks and the highlight pizza. They actually had a wood fired oven. I was further surprised when my pizza was delivered on a wooden board accompanied by crushed garlic, chili and Parmesan. I'll definitely being staying here for any other JNB layovers.
