If you are looking for a place near OR Tambo, Life could be the right choice. Really well refurnished rooms, styley pool, very good restaurant, great breakfast, free airport pick up, it's an excellent hotel. We hope that the brand Life will expand in Europe in the next years and will keep this style.

The staff were very helpfull. The service was excellent, and above all when I travel to Johannesburg / East Rand this is the place I will stay in again. The food was plentyfull and very tasty.

This is a good place for an overnight stay near OR Tambo Airport (JNB), as it is close to the airport and the hotel offers a free shuttle. It is reasonably quiet for its location. The decor is hip and modern, with an aeronautical theme. The rooms are spacious, clean, with very comfortable beds and nice linens. The hotel offers...

This hotel is a good and affordable option for those looking to stay over by the airport. We stayed here the night we landed in Jo'burg before leaving for our safari next day and then again after our SA trip came to an end before catching our flight home next day. It's no frills but importantly the rooms were clean....

It will give you anything you need: a clean room and bed, a breakfast and free airport transfer. The restaurant is good too. But two things were disturbing: the staff was overcharged when there were three people trying to check in at the same time. Second: they will provide you with a Voucher for free WiFi use but WiFi will...

The free airport transfers are extremely efficient. Staff were very welcoming and, although I arrived at 9am, a room was made available for me almost immediately. The hotel is not much to look at externally but the bedrooms (I was in the main hotel and not the annex) are nicely decorated and clean with a very comfortable bed. I had...

The Aviator is a really nice place if you are looking for a stop over hotel close to JoBurgs airport. It has all the flair you come to expect from a modern, hip place and the staff is just lovely!! Free (fast) wifi, free shuttle, free breakfast, etc. The water in the big pool was a little cold though.

I had problems to book on line and so phoned through my reservation. I then discovered that would be 40% extra !! I explained the problem to the manager by e-mail and they promptly gave me a credit. There are two hotels in the same group ( Life Hotels ) facing each other across a narrow street. The Aviator is...

We stayed overnight at the Aviator side of Life Hotels and it was quite nice. Nothing fancy, but great staff and very close to the OR Tambo Airport. They picked us from our flight too. Food was good, breakfast included.

This hotel was dissappointing. Even though I was only going to stay for one night in Joburg on my way to Hoedspruit, I had hoped to stay at a nice hotel close to the airport. The pictures of the Life Hotel made me believe that this was kind of a boutique hotel. Oh boy was I wrong! The only good...

“Shuttle runs every half hour on the hour and half past leaving from the hotel. Need to call the hotel once you arrive so they can send the shuttle or tell you where to find it (I got it at the Bus Terminal, but sounds like they pickup at arrival/departures too). Would imagine that quarter past and quarter til each hour will be the shuttle at the airport. The phone number on Orbitz for the hotel was to their fax. Had to ask a taxi to find the right number for me. Bummer. please fix!!!! Not nice to have visitors come from other countries and not be able to call their hotel they made a reservation with. :(”
