Badly laid out rooms and also quite small. Impossible not to get water in the floor with the shower design as well. Hotel is joining Marriott group but a long way to go yet. Also still no Marriott points or benefits. Internet average at best. Good location as a plus point as close to airport.

For local and international travellers , the Protea Hotel OR Tambo Airport is conveniently close , with a free , regular shuttle service to the welcoming Protea staff.

The hotel is conveniently located near the hotel, so it is perfect place to stay for a layover. The rooms are small, and the shower is all glass, and not enclosed in it's own room. It is seperated from the beds by a shower curtain. It is a litte awkward when traveling with a friend. We ate in the hotel... More

Had one night to stay prior to going to visit Kruger. The hotel was clean with easy airport transfers,nice restaurant and business center . Liked the industrial decor ,was different and the rooms had glass shower with curtains not he best for privacy travelling with friends or grown up children.OK for couples. staff friendly and helpful.

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...

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.
