The check in process on arrival was very easy and we quickly had the key for the room. Room was clean and functional and the bed surprisingly comfortable! We tried to make a phone call from our room but the phone wasn't working so we went to the reception who made the phone call for us and sent maintenance up... More

Stayed for 1 night before I went to the Kruger National Park. The rooms were very nice, food was good and the service was great. Close to the airport too, with a shuttle bus. The room however has a curtain to block the shower. So not very private, but none the less the showers are amazing

I was so happy to see the hotel after 24 hours of flying, but that's not the basis for my review. Wonderful friendly staff helpful with every request I made. Since you are already inside through security and everything, you literally walk out from the hotel straight to your gate. I thought I would have more trouble finding it but... More

Stayed 4 nights in this airport hotel due to a corporate event close by to the airport. The hotel's theme is that of an urban industrial factory which is quite unique to the naked eye. The room size and amenities were what I expected of a 4 star chain. There are two great things of this hotel i.e. # 1... More

The staff were excellent, friendly and professional, the rooms clean and modern with comfy beds and all the amenities expected. Breakfast the next morning was great and lots of choices. I will choose this hotel next time I'm in town for business.

Staff were good, room was lovely, a few small issues that should not occur in this type of hotel, spoilt an otherwise great stay. Marble around basin area needed a wipe when we arrived as it was a bit dirty, toilets difficult to flush, and it took an awfully long time to get a don pedro. That being said i... More

After a 21 hr trip, we were not arriving at OR Tambo until almost 10:00 at night and had a 9:00 flight the next morning so we needed a hotel close to the airport. We selected this Protea so we could use our Marriott points. The hotel is very close to the airport, although if you are driving yourself, be... More

We stayed for a couple of nights to adjust time and visit Soweto and Apartheid museum. Excellent clean room with friendly staff. Free shuttle to Emperors Palace for varied dinner options was a bonus. Highly recommend considering this fine hotel. It is part of the Marriott family.

The hotel is 1 km far from the OR Tambo airport terminal, even if by road it is much longer. The spaces in the hotel are arranged so that the main features of a hangar are rebuilt and reconsidered in a modern key. The resulting effect is pretty nice. Rooms are large clean, restaurant serves good food at reasonable price.

Clean, modern and relatively quiet. Protea hotels offer 50% off meals with their membership card. Certainly worth it. Protea hotels generally have the shower in the actual "sleeping area" with a curtain or frosted door. The only private part in the actual toilet. If this bothers you, then Protea is not for you.
