Business stayover

I went to Johannesburg for business and wanted to stay close to the airport as it would be easy to meet business contacts, have quick access to the Gautrain and didn't want to pay too much. This was my first stay at the Aviator and I must admit, I was nicely surprised. The room was fairly good, spacious and all things I the room worked well. What upset me a bit was that the carpet in the room was not clean and I was not impressed with the shower. Within 10 minutes the housekeeper was in my room, apologised, and moved me to a room that was neat and clean. She immediately arranged that the carpet got washed and the room thoroughly cleaned. This was done without any fuss or hassle. All staff, from reception, cleaners, waiters in dining room as well as the drivers of the shuttle bus to the airport were extremely friendly and helpful. When I did the booking I did not take into consideration that the noise of the airport might be a nuisance and this is the only reason why I gave the Location a 3. However ALL hotels around the OR Tambo will have the same problem: Aircraft Noise. The breakfast buffet was although not very big in variety still very good and the omelettes are of the best in Johannesburg. I have ordered food for room service and think the normal restaurant fees for food is a bit stiff for what you get. They have the same prices as upmarket restaurants and I think the chef needs a bit more polishing before that can be done. Also the dining room is not set with fancy tablecloths, crockery and cutlery to justify the restaurant fees. In overall, I will give the hotel a 7 out of 10 and will anytime stay here again if I just need a short stay in Johannesburg.

Very cinvenient location

A very good place for a quick overnight stay close to the airport. Nice to be able to sit outside around the pool. The dinner was mediocre in quality and over-priced, which was disappointing. We have had better meals during our stay in SA for half the price.

A bit worn out

One towel in the bathroom, hidden light switches, worn out carpet in the hall way, etc. good enough for one night only. And no free wifi in the room, only near the reception

Really great hotel

When I came from Oliver Tambo, cold, dark , exhausted and struggling with the GPS, I first got afraid of the dark streets and many people roaming around in the vicinity of the hotel. However, the moment I entered the premises of the hotel, everything was just great. Perfect service, beautiful gardens, wonderful rooms and absolutely heavenly food. Thanks for the gym!!! I didn't have to go out in the cold for my morning jogging session - could just use your great treadmill! When I had to board my flight at 6h40 in the morning, it took me 10 minutes to the airport. Will never use another hotel in JHB again. Prices are very humble for kingsize service!!
