This hotel is convenient for a stop over, it is close to the airport, with a shuttle bus to and from the hotel. The hotel it's self is clean, and the staff were friendly and helpful, the décor is not to everyone's taste, it is very industrial, with large packing cases, bits of engines and toolboxes set around the place,...

The Protea is a very nice hotel with regular shuttle to/from OR Tambo Airport which makes it very convenient if you do not wish to stay at a hotel attached to the airport (City Lodge or Intercontinental). The rooms are clean but not particularly spacious. There is a plastic/glass shower enclosure and wash basin in the room (not separated in... More

Stayed overnight at the Protea Hotel, arriving quite early in the day from an overnight flight and had only the briefest delay getting a room. They invited me to have breakfast(large selection of foods) and brought my key to me in the restaurant. A very nice touch. This was very refreshing after two very long flights (11 hr. each) from...

Definitely recommend this hotel if you need to stopover between flights. Shuttle bus easy to find and punctual, check in fast and staff exceptionally friendly and helpful.

Stayed here for one night on my way to Kruger. A shuttle from the hotel picked me up at the airport. The walk through the alley from the airport to the shuttle area is scary (sure, not a fault of Protea). It seemed that the hotel was at least 2 miles drive from the airport, not walkable in any way.... More

An affordable hotel with airport shuttle, quality restaurant/bar, and a decent room. Fellow North Americans will find the rooms a bit smallish but very clean, quiet (I was on the 3rd floor, airport side and didn't have issues with noise), with quality televisions and wifi. A nice variety of teas and coffees were complimentary in the room. Shuttle service was... More
