Love this Hotel. Very quiet, comfortable and enjoyable. The facilities are exceptional. I was however disappointed in the poor room service delivery while here. The item I ordered was delivered RAW. I will continue to return.

The Protea Hotel at Wanderers in JHB is what you expect of an international renowned hotel. Every minute of our stay was enjoyable and I can find no fault. Even made ourselves comfortable in the crew lounge on the sixth floor whilst enjoying a rugby game on tv

Overall a good hotel, with good quality bedrooms and in a good and safe neighborhood in town. Positive attire of the personnel and good ambient. Too bad the perception of the hotel drops due to things like : no water (neither welcome bottles nor minibar) in the room (unacceptable for a 4 star hotel) + thin walls , don't expect... More
