This was a nice hotel, right at the airport with very good service to and from the airport. the rooms were nice and the very thick windows kept out most of the noise. The breakfast we adequate. Nice garden to sit and good view from the garden of the airport.

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. Loved the aircraft hanger design, right down to toolboxes for the cutlery. Nice clean and comfortable room. Toilet didn't flush but maintenance was super quick and replaced a part in minutes!

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

Stayed here for 1 night in June 2014 as part of an OAT trip to 3 other countries in Southern Africa. Hotel provides a complementary shuttle to/from airport/hotel every 30 minutes. The bus center/pick up location at airport is a little difficult to find (it's behind the Intercontinental Hotel), so ask at an info counter inside the airport. The hotel... More

We stayed two nights at the Protrea. This is a good choice if you need to spend a night or two near the OR Tambo Airport. There is a free shuttle that runs from the airport every half hour, from the bus center (which is difficult to find – be careful). It’s a modern hotel, with an accommodating, friendly staff.... More
