Loved the food. Buffet style and 3 courses. Idyllic setting tucked away in midrand. Spa available which I would have loved to have visited. Outside patio are was beautiful. Definitely sit there on a summer afternoon with a cocktail.

Typical Marriott brand! Nice ambience, clean rooms, friendly staff. The WiFi is free for guests and it's fast. There is a safe for those who care to use it. 24/7 room service, but I find the menu very limited. I believe the menu at the restaurant will have more choices. It also takes a bit of time to get served.... More

This hotel is poor for what you pay. The reception, lounge and dining area is nice but the rooms and service leave a lot to be desired. You can get a much better level of room and guest service at a City Lodge for R1000 a night cheaper. Good points: Internet is fine Location is okay if you need to... More

We stayed here for three nights. It was well run clean rooms and reasonably good to very good food. It is situated between Johannesburg and Pretoria however the traffic going to both places is horrendous! If you want access to places such as Sandton City or Four Ways Malls then staying at Proteas other hotels would be better. This hotel... More

Spent a whole week in the hotel. Very good standard. The bed is very comfortable, rooms clean. Great service. Had dinner twice. Tasty food. Although, when asking for a medium rare steak, don't be surprised to get a well done one :-) On the downsize, you need to be prepared for paying upfront for your room. Breakfast was ok.

I stay in the Midrand Protea hotel for many years . This is well suited if your visit is in the Midrand area , the heart of Ithe IT Industry . This is a business hotel and not a resort from my experience .

Stayed here many times over the past 20 years or so and find this hotel convenient especially if I am travelling between Sandton and Pretoria. The old is looking a little tired in some parts . The rooms are a good size

My stay at Protea provided a few highs and lows- First, I had to lug my luggage up and down the stairs to get to my room- no ramps and no bellhop! Thought that was really odd.

Loved the room which came with a small bar fridge and clean wooden floors. The fine touches makes it comfortable and classy. Breakfast will leave you spoilt for choice and full.

I recently spent 2 weeks in Johannesburg on yet another business trip, and what I'll remember most is my perfect stay at the Protea Hotel. The value was one of a kind. The food was the best I've had.
