Arriving at the Protea hotel Balalaika took me by a negative surprise. The nice looks of the reception and politeness of guests really deceive anyone that is arriving. I was very please during check-in until they ushered me to a room smelling like fresh paint....More

Hello, I took the shuttle from the hotel to the airport and was cheaper than a taxi, I do not remember how much, but was very convenient. You should call the hotel to help you taking the shuttle from the airport to the hotel. Enjoy the hotel's patio it is great.
It's a good hotel and you will be v comfortable - it is best to contact the hotel directly - also think about renting a furnished self catering apartment - there are lots in Sandton. Hope this is helpful
