Hotel Rooms & Suites
The interior design at Aviator is absolutely perfect, they have managed to create hotel rooms that are contemporary without being minimal, and luxurious without being palatial. Walnut and leather are accented with brushed chrome. Bathrooms are sleek; the wet rooms have black glass walls, but the towels are soft, and the blankets - Missoni.
Special touches in every room include free wi-fi, bottled water, speciality teas, cafetière, and wall-mounted LCD TV with free movies and music library. Egyptian cotton bed linen and goose down duvets and pillows are standard in all rooms.
A spacious 28 sq.m. room with king-sized bed and comfortable leather sofa.

A residents-only fitness studio and luxury treatments are also located within the hotel, so guests can relax their way - by burning energy on the treadmills, or by being pampered and massaged by the hotel’s therapists.

We stayed at the Aviator Hotel a few weekends ago for a friend's birthday party. The staff couldn't do enough for us and the hotel itself is like a piece of art. The food in the brasserie is fantastic...
