i have stayed at the OR Tambo Protea Hotel on 5 different occasions, and it is situated close to the OR Tambo Airport in Johannesburg.
The Hotel lobby is quite nice and has a industrial motif to it which is very different. The rooms are cleans, but small and functional, and the hotel over is in good state of repair.
The staff and service at check in is slow to say the least, and the interaction with the guests just acceptable, but the hotel serves its purpose well, which for me is an overnight stay en route to a game lodge in Namibia or Sabi Sand.
