The only negative I could give this hotel is the fact that they do not take Visa (debit/credit) cards from the USA, but this seems to be a ubiquitous, South African issue, so I cannot particularly blame the hotel itself. I'm not a big fan of the open, modern bathrooms, but they were very clean and functional. The beds (as... More

i have stayed at the OR Tambo Protea Hotel on 5 different occasions, and it is situated close to the OR Tambo Airport in Johannesburg. The Hotel lobby is quite nice and has a industrial motif to it which is very different. The rooms are cleans, but small and functional, and the hotel over is in good state of repair.... More

I facilitated a day long conference at the hotel and was pleasantly surprised. The hotel decor is quite unusual and the conference venue is superb. Nothing was a problem for the conference staff. Refreshments were superb and different to the usual conference fare e.g. little boxes of popcorn for the afternoon session. The lunch buffet was extensive and the staff... More

I spent the night in this hotel in my flyback to Brazil. It is located nearby to OR International airport and has a shuttle server as complimentary. It has a interesting style resembling to an "old facility" or "warehouse". It is pretty charming, clean and well located. The Wi-fi free, but it is limited to 250MB per day. The price... More

We stayed here just one night after the long flight from the US. We were exhausted and irritable. But this hotel revived us. Lovely lighting, a comfortable bed and a great shower. What more could you want? We heard no aircraft noise. The breakfast buffet was extensive and well presented and the chef doing the omelet was excellent. The decor... More

The hotel is well placed right across from the airport and has a free shuttle. Rooms are good, with comfortable beds and the meals are decent. Unfortunately there seems to be only the buffet or room service, but headed back to the airport for a meal is also a good option as there are many restaurants there.

If you don't mind staying next to a highway, listening to the planes take off, loud music in the restaurant 24/7, your laundry coming back dirty or staff that is rude and unhelpful, then stay here. Also, the hotel debited more than we spent on our credit cards!!!!!

The hotel is close to Airport and the Pool is great (esp at night) but rooms are average at best and we were given two separate beds instead of a queen/king bed.
