We had to stay somewhere near OR Tambo airport and this hotel was the perfect choice, near the Gautrain and excellently priced. Within walking distance to the Centuarion Mall with lots of eating choices.

I was unexpectedly upgraded to a spacious suite which was a great bonus - my home away from home on my 4-day mini holiday in Gauteng.

It's a good hotel. You know exactly what to expect and it delivers. The staff are very friendly and the food is top tier. The hotel is located right next to the mall so that's convenient. The studio room we were in had no view of the lake.

I have stayed here a couple of times, and the rooms are neat, service is good, food ok but there is something about it that makes me feel unsatisfied when I leave... All experiences have been forgettable but because it is a Protea Hotel, I always come back. There is no wow factor.

Stayed there for 2 nights for business meetings.

The Protea Hotel Centurion is a fair hotel. I have stayed here a few times previously and I was hoping that now that it was a Marriott it had improved but it hasn't changed at all. It need an overhaul. The rooms are very dated. There is no fitness room. Hopefully they will make some changes.
