    It was a good experience. The hotel's food is good. The only complaint is the toilet in the room. the fancy flush "button" against the wall was not working properly therefore the toilet was not flushing properly.

    Outstanding customer service and a very funky approach to room design.

    The shuttle bus both to and from or Tambo International airport was not on time which was disappointing as I had to wait in the bus station at the airport for over 40 minutes.

    Fantastic value for money! internet images not so good but lovely surprise when you reach the hotel, i will definately stay again, i have tried many others, this hotel is a hidden gem for travelling through Jo-burg.......

    there was actually a slight problem the power went down at 4.30am and took 45 mins, lucky for me i had packed the night before, otherwise i would have missed my flight as the hotel was in complete darkness!!

    I liked my stay there. The room was ultra clean and super comfortable. I recommend anyone overnighting at OR Tambo airport to stay there.

    The airport pick up shuttle Lex Shuttle service did not come for a full 50 minutes upon my arrival at the curbside outside the airport. It was miserable waiting outside the airport.

    As I am a qualified private pilot it was fun to watch the goings on on ORT's tarmac loading and offloading aircraft. decor was very conducive However I was surprised to see no fridges and It was slow getting Ice

    Bearing in mind its newness I think the food in some cases could be improved e.g. Our steaks, ordered as 'Medium" came almost raw and had to be sent back

    All services were swift and best quality, Shuttle transport is perfect.

    Breakfast was to be paid separately and that was an option in the booking. In an airport hotel, you do not have alternative breakfast places.

    Modern design, nice gym facility, conveniently close to the airport

    The shuttle service does not cover all the flight hours so for a very early flight you have to book a taxi

    I stayed here because I needed a hotel room for 1 night close to the airport as I had an early morning departure. It was comfortable enough for that reason. However en route to hotel I did notice 2 other hotels closer to the airport. The room I stayed in had an open plan bathroom (shower only) and a separate toilet. It was a comfortable nights rest (though walls are a little thing).

    Very pleasant reception staff and excellent transport service from the airport. Nicely appointed room.

    Tried to shower later in the evening and the water was bordering on coldI. The biggest issue was someone trying to come into my room at 2am. When I approached the door, rather nervously, from a deep sleep, was told he was checking vacant rooms for the following day's intake. He apologised and walked off. Had I not double locked my room, I would have had someone walking in on me. Reception confirmed that the room checking was legitimate but they had given the staff member the wrong list. Seems like a crazy time of the night to be doing room checks. Nice hotel but management need to sort these sorts of things out! Would give it another go, just

    Staff excellent very helpfull.

    But the rooms are very old and its very expensive for the conditions hotel is offering

    A modern, stylish hotel with an interesting aviation theme. Only 5 minutes from the airport terminal, with a very convenient shuttle service every half hour. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the staff were helpful.
