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.

In the air

Aviator is convenient to JNB airport and the hotel bus was good for picking up and returning to airport - once you know where to go. Room was clean and convenient tho the chairs in room are too light, plus carpet well is too deep or carpet too thin, easy to catch and go off balance. Had no problem with noise even tho close to runway and a major road. Staff all helpful and friendly. Buffets good. Reception got me taxis OK. Recommend use ATM's and exchange at airport as NO facilities at or near hotel.I stayed here on way to and from Zambia, Nov, Dec 2013

Sa visit, Oct 2013

Overnight at the Life Aviator at the start of our SA visit. The hotel is close to the airport and they provide a great evening dinner and breakfast. Our only complaint was the long wait for the shuttle to pick us up at the airport when we arrived. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay there again.

Perfect for a stay near the airport

The hotel worked out perfect for an overnight stay. Great location, great environments, good restaurant, friendly staff and free wifi Access. Only minor issue was had to wait for the shuttle to be picked up from the airport. Needed help to call in the end after getting tired of waiting for over half hour. They need to monitor passenger s arrival times to improve this service. Otherwise a perfect overnight stay.

No fuss stay

We really enjoyed our stay at the Life Aviator Hotel in Kempton Park. They provided free shuttle not just to the airport but also to the Festival Mall. The staff at the check in we're good. Location is good for airport transfers.

Vacation

We enjoyed staying at the Life Aviator. The receptionist was very good. We had arrived at 6am and they let us in without a fee. Rooms are spacious. Airport shuttles a good one. Don't think it is a 4* hotel. A 3* if you asked me. Breakfast was great (not a lot of selection) but
