Unlike its international capital city counterparts, the Pretoria CBD is not what it used to be ... the heart & soul of big business, shopping and dining is no more! But, the Protea Capital hotel, located on one of the main arteries to the city, provides a welcome and pleasant escape from its immediate dull surroundings. The reception area is... More

Protea Hotel Capital is well located for access to the CBD of Pretoria; and to several government departments in the city. Parking is convenient and safe, rooms are comfortable ...but service standards are not capital. For example, (a) my morning wake up call did not happen; and there seems not to be an accountable management process to check on this... More

Good hotel with great facilities. The rooms were very neat and comfortable. The hotel staff are extremely friendly and very helpful. The hotel is however located on a very busy street and there is limited parking available. The security guards were however very helpful in ensuring parking can be found.

Nice facility. Located on a popular and very long street close to the CBD. I was upgraded to a better room than I had booked by the kind front desk personnel, Valentia, owing to my membership of Procard, their Loyalty Card Programme. The food did not provide much options but the dessert was excellent. The room was of decent size... More

This hotel is located in an accessible part of Pretoria. It has excellent room sizes and friendly staff. The problems experienced were around cleanliness of the rooms, the smell of cigarettes in the rooms and the awkward breakfast setting due to a section of the hotel being under renovation. Staff were very helpful when it was pointed out that the... More

Not good, not bad. We got a good price, so it was ok, but I wouldn't pay full price for this hotel. Location is very good if you need to be close to the city centre, but it can get noisy at night on the weekends if you have a room with street view, we had to close all windows... More

I use this hotel for conferencing. Our delegates now enjoy the conferencing facilities after a change in conferencing menu. They listened to the complaints and overhauled the food offered at the venue. Complaints about air-conditioning was fixed within minutes of complaint. The staff are friendly and very helpful.

Stayed only one night and had a compact room with clean facilities. I could not hear the traffic at all. Very near shops and restaurants as well as a reasonable distance from the train. Staff were very helpful although it took a bit of time to get my wireless connection configured.
