Very Poor

The only thing going for this hotel is it's location ie close to the airport. The restaurant had a menu but only pizza and sandwiches were available from it and the buffet did not look good

stop over

Hotel is okay for an overnight stay. Its close to airport with shuttle available. You have to walk outside to get to the rooms from the lobby which can be annoying if you have a lot of luggage. Food was good rooms were okay. Overall not a bad stay.

Layover for next flight

The hotel was all right. It was clean. They offered breakfast the following morning. I arrived late evening near 10PM. Just needed a nap until my flight the next morning at 9AM. It was close to the airport. My only complaint was that it took more than 1 hour for the hotel shuttle to pick me up. Other than that it was pretty fair. No significant complaints.

A Good Place to Shack

A few of us needed a place to stay close to the airport and the Aviator hotel was just the place to go given that it is only 8 minutes from the airport. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was good. The rooms were clean and the stay was overall pleasant given the prices.

Excellent value, 5-15 minutes from JNB departures

The Aviator is a great little hotel very close to JNB airport. There is a free shuttle which picks up outside ground transportation (where other hotel shuttles also operate). The Aviator staff members are helpful and friendly. The room was clean and simple. There is a pool and sunbathing area (although I didn't have time to use either). There is bar with a reasonable selection. I ate dinner at the Aviator restaurant and ordered a steak which I found quite good. The complimentary breakfast buffet was great, with a selection from healthy to hardy. The next time I spend a day or two at JNB, I will stay at the Aviator.

Decent stay for the price.

The aviation theme was carried through out the place. The room had a nice setup but the shower had multiple tiles missing. There aren't many channels on the TV but we weren't there to watch TV anyway. Getting the shuttle ended up being an exercise in patience since we couldn't seem to get ahold of the hotel for some reason. Other than those minor things the room was clean, staff friendly, and the food in the restaurant was decent. I'd say it was worth the money for what we got.
