    I wasn't expecting much from an airport hotel and I just needed an overnight to catch a connecting flight the next morning. The Protea exceeded expectation. The hotel offers a free shuttle every half an hour (from the bus terminal behind the Intercontinental) and the driver set the pace for the friendly and helpful staff service I received during my...

    The hotel is a nice location close to the airport. The stay though was not nice. Rooms was like you were staying in a jail with high windows , dirty bedding no privacy for the washroom, even the breakfast spread was not nice. Inside was noisy too. Do not recommend.

    The hotel itself is convenient to the airport (via shuttle), clean and comfortable. The menu and food were very good. With three separate overnight stays in our recent 2-1/2 week trip to South Africa, the front desk experience was very mixed. On the first occasion, check-in took us over 20 minutes to have a room assigned to us (with no... More

    Another pleasant business seminar stay at the Protea OR Tambo Airport...warm welcome back from reception staff, efficient conference facility and a comfortable overnight room. The package deal for the seminar overnight is good value, with excellent buffet menu options , for dinner and breakfast.
