Friendly staff, comfy beds, pretty rooms, good food, a lil pool to cool down on hot summer days... It doesn't offer special luxuries like some people mention (shops, etc) but it has everything you need, it's clean and looks v.decent! Recommended.

This hotel is the average overnight hotel. If you want a quick in and out with zero luxury, this is for you. Nothing special, terrible tv, and poor room layout. But truly, it's a fine hotel if you're not looking for anything special, it is clean and sterile, which is important.

This was a large hotel but the rooms were extremely small. I was solo and as flying internationally the next day wished to re pack luggage. There was not much room . Two people would have had difficulty. Also there was not a power point near the bed which could be accessed for a cpap machine. Something a number of... More

This hotel is perfect for transit passengers. After the flight you go to the transfers, pass through customs and baggage check and then you enter the hotel. When you leave you just go to your gate! No fuss, no hassle. This time i stayed, i found out that the sheets were not changed and dirty. The receptionist checked, apologized and... More

More airports should have such an option. The Protea Hotel Transit at the airport is convenient to the transit check-in counters and has wonderful helpful staff. While staying there you have access to all the duty-free shops and an excellent breakfast at the Mugg and Bean.

A good hotel to have some rest while waiting for your connecting flight. It offers comfortable rooms at very affordable prices. My only negative remark goes for the bathroom, which is almost totally open: shower and bathtub are entirely visible from the rest of the room... but the experience as a whole is positive.
