This is a industrial themed Protea. Close to the airport with ahuttle servive every half hour at main times. Not sure about late. Service was good. Room was small and more like a European style but quite adequate. Bed was very comfortable. Gym is just adequate. The pool and surrounds are very pleasant and you can sit and relax while...

It's an airport hotel, what can you expect. Not high luxury, but very clean and comfortable. Staff was ultra friendly and rooms were quiet. The only remark I have, is that staff have to idea what gluten intolerance is and as such, no provisions are offered at breakfast for people who have this more and more common allergy. Shuttle service...

I stayed here the night I flew into SA. Next day my tour started and we left. This hotel was perfectly fine. I found the room and the dinner buffet/breakfast to be very good. The style of the lobby/bar/restaurant is very fun/unique. The biggest downfall for me was that the hotel recommended you not to leave the property. I love...

At reception we were not treated as guests. No porter service and one lift was out of order. At least the room was nice and clean. A very nice and well equipt gym on the premisses gained a few points for the hotel but we tried to order a light meal at around 11:00 - very slack service. The food...

THis was actually a "day room" for about nine hours between flights. This hotel has a great location with very small rooms that are designed with the shower in the room - not in the bathroom. Their evening buffet is well done although one of the meat dishes was very tough - good deserts and salads. Prefer the neighboring Premier...

I normally stay over in Johannesburg near the Airport to do day trips to neighboring countries. Until now I stayed at the Southern Sun, but endless troubles with their reward system made me look for somewhere else. The Protea Hotel OR Tambo is really nice.

This is a funky, but not fancy airport hotel, with a cool aviation theme throughout. The rooms are small but sufficient for the usual airport hotel stay of a single night. I’d highly recommend this hotel.
