This is what you can expect when paying R1200 per night at the Protea Hotel. To say I'm disappointed would be understatement! This is the bed before I even slept on it, come on Protea Hotel these are details you can't afford to miss.

There is no useable heating in the room which may be understandble given the very short period of time where heating might be needed. Still it was unpleasant The roooms are okay - not too... More

Good choice for a mid-range hotel in the Sandton area. Not quite in the middle of Sandton but close enough if you have your own transport - if you're a sports fan then the Wanderers Stadium is just across the road. It very much feels like an oasis, loved the large infinity pool which you could do some lap swimming... More

When traveling to Jhb there is no shortage of options to stay at, the protea wanderers has been a solid candidate for as long as I can remember. It also helps that the service is always impeccable and they will gladly arrange a coffee at 5.30am before your meetings kick off.

The hotel with the welcoming apple! Rooms are adequate without being outstanding. The hotel is close to the business areas and would probably be ideal for those going to the Wanderers cricket. Nothing great but then also no problems. It's a type of place to stay in if business meetings are to be held close by.

I stayed at this hotel in Johannesburg while visiting a conference. It was chosen primarily because of proximity to the conference facilities. It met my needs and when an issue was identified it was resolved swiftly and to satisfaction. Good moderately priced convention hotel.
