We arrived into Johannesburg and were staying at Aero for 2 nights before heading on to Kruger National Park. Mthembu Ishmael (Ish) was our driver and guide for our holiday and could not be faulted throughout the trip. He was knowledgeable, friendly and had a great laugh while also ensuring we got to see everything we wanted and felt safe throughout our time in South Africa.

Our rooms were situated just opposite the pool area and were very cool despite the heat. Adequate space in the rooms and clean throughout the room/bathroom.

There is a pool and billiards table to use to keep you occupied and cheap prices for alcoholic drinks within the lodge.

Breakfast buffet was great and the ladies who served us were friendly. I would recommend the Ostrich steak as one of the best things I have ever eaten!

We usually stay at the Emperor’s Palace when flying in or out of Johannesburg - this time the prices were extortionate so we looked elsewhere and we we glad we did! The lodge is wonderful, the rooms are nicely decorated and the garden is lovely. The shuttle to and from the airport was easy to sort and very efficient - they will even take you elsewhere for a small fee. The only downside is the area it is situated in - however, security is very obvious and we felt perfectly safe when staying there. Will definitely be coming back next time we’re in South Africa!

My wife and I spent 1 night at the lodge as we had a connecting flight which was only departing the next day. Although we arranged our own airport transfers, the lodge does provide free transfers. The property is conveniently located, approximately a 5 minute drive from OR Tambo airport and there is plenty of safe and secure parking on-site. The property and gardens are neat and well maintained. The rooms are clean and spacious with a modern bathroom. The breakfast was good. If you need a 1 night stop over for a connecting flight, this is an ideal place to stay.

I booked a "more expensive" room because it is larger and has a garden view. I was given another room that faced the noisy street and at night a continuous noise like drill (perhaps the electric generator) did not make me sleep.
I immediately asked if we could have the room booked but, although other solutions were available at the same price, the Indian lady (perhaps the owner) was absolutely not interested in the problem.
The blonde girl at the reception is very kind but unfortunately she is not always there and perhaps she has no decision-making power.
The structure would not be bad but if they don't care about the customer's problems and their goal is only to get paid thanks but I choose other.

Ho prenotato una camera “più costosa” perché più grande e vista giardino. Mi è stata data un’altra camera che dava sulla strada rumorosissima e di notte un rumore continuo tipo trapano (forse il generatore elettrico) non mi ha fatto dormire.
Avevo chiesto si da subito se potevamo avere la stanza prenotata ma, pur essendo disponibili altre soluzioni allo stesso prezzo, la signora indiana (forse la proprietaria) non si è interessata assolutamente della problematica.
La ragazza bionda della reception è molto gentile ma purtroppo non c’è sempre e forse non ha potere decisionale.
La struttura non sarebbe male ma se non si preoccupano delle problematiche del cliente e il loro obbiettivo è solo farsi pagare grazie ma scelgo altro.

Hi, We do apologise for the response of our receptionist you were referring too. As you can see from our reviews, our staff are normally praised for how kind they are. Neeva (who you were referring to) was part of a college internship programme we support but her 3 months have passed, she is no longer working for Aero Guest Lodge. We truly apologise and we would love to welcome you back again in the future. Kind regards, Adrian

Probably just good enough when arriving late and leaving early the next day. Excellent shuttle service back and forth to the airport. Friendly and helpful staff. Simple breakfast but for dinner suggest going to next door Aviation hotel. Rooms need to be refurbished to meet 2020 standards and overall feeling is that the place is popular because of the low price that they charge.

This is sure one of the best welcomings to have when arriving (back) in South Africa and especially after a long haul flight and the tired old bones need a good rest on an asap solution.....

From picking up at the airport until right into your room the service went seamless. Booked my meals ahead as well and everything was tip-top and ready, waiting for me, even though I arrived quite late.

The first pleasure after a long flight was to stroll a bit around the well lit garden and drink in some night air. The new day met me with as much tranquil and even more friendly folks that came on duty.

I do recommend this hotel which is not far from OR Tambo Airport for they surely have all well sorted for the tired traveler.

Stayed here for one night after an overnight flight and before commencing a group tour. I used the free shuttle service from the airport and was able to check into my room early in the morning which was a bonus. It was quite cold but Josie had thoughtfully provided me with a fan heater in the room. The staff are extremely friendly. The room was clean and had everything I needed, including free WiFi. The restaurant was not open but a couple of takeaway menus were provided and the lovely lady on reception rang through an order for me. Nice gardens around the pool area. There was free tea and coffee available and a good breakfast before I left the next day.

I spent one night here before my next flight. The staff were super nice and helpful. They cheerfully picked me up at airport at 1 am, helped me arrange a short safari for the next day, and made me feel comfortable and welcome. All at a very reasonable rate. I will certainly stay here again when in Johannesburg. Lodge is very comfortable and in a residential type neighborhood. Not much to do nearby, but very convenient to the airport.

We found Aero Guest Lodge as we were looking for somewhere to stay nearby to go off on our safari early the next morning. As soon as you get within the gates of the property the hotel felt so calm and the staff were really friendly. They provide a free shuttle service which is fantastic when you have an early morning. The room was spacious and the bathroom was lovely. Of course as the airport is nearby you do hear the planes but for our stay it ticked all the boxes.

An absolute gem to take a day before onward travel after a long haul flight. They will pick you up at the airport and also provide a ride to nearby restaurants and shops. This well established stopover, has comfortable rooms (great beds) and is a peaceful haven in a bustling metropolis. Be sure to relax by the pool with a few drinks from the bar, and enjoy the pretty gardens, and the birds will keep you company. In the evening, be sure to get dropped at Emporer’s Palace for a lot of dining choices, and when you are replete, Aero Lodge will pick you up and take you home to bed! So very easy!

Aero guestlodge has a driver, He can drive you and pick you up again. 👍I dont think it is safe to drive there in the evening.

Unfortunately we were collected at the airport by someone from the hotel so we did not drive. I don’t recommend that you drive in that area. It is not well lit at night. If you want to go out at night it might be better to uber . No one seems to obey road rules either at night so it’s not safe on the road and I think the area is not safe from crime Perhaps if you want to drive around you should look at staying closer to Sandton area where it is well lit all the time I hope you find this helpful.

The Aero Lodge has a great guide they use and he took us to the Cradle of Humankind. Absolutely outstanding guide. He is an engineering student and very informative. Didn't go to Mandela Museum but I am sure they can arrange that with him as well.
