Protea Hotel by Marriott OR Tambo Airport

My brother and I stayed here during our World Cup adventure and we would highly recommend it. The staff were engaging and helpful, the rooms and decor a delight, and the breakfast spread delicious. The airport shuttle was free as were short trips to the Gautrain station and the nearest mall. Unfortunately, the Johannesburg mass transit system does not offer easy connections, and we needed to arrange expensive taxi rides to meet some of our needs. The taxi drivers arranged through the hotel were reliable and fun guys. We always felt safe and loved Johannesburg and its people.

Searched for decent airport hotel just for 1 night ,except the intercontinental charging a whopping £357 we struggled ,found this one on virgin holidays site but for a minimum of 3 nights so went direct . Fantastic service when booking and when we arrived , extremely helpful friendly staff ,brilliant bedroom ,decent breakfast for half the price of others of this quality ,free airport pickups and drop offs back to your next flight .The bar /lounge is a bit overdesigned but we were so tired we didnt care. As its not in the airport but minutes away ,it tends not to come up on searches for Johannesburg Airport hotels .

This is a really nice hotel, great rooms, nice decor, although a minibar or small fridge in the room would be nice. About 5 minutes from airport by free shuttle bus. Good breakfast buffet. Staff was very friendly, even arranged for transport to a nearby mall and the driver came to pick us up when we were done.

Stayed here for 1 night en route to somewhere else. Great airport hotel. Didn't use the pool but it looked good. Food was nice though and reasonably priced. Great staff. Very helpful. Picked me up from the airport with only 10 minutes' notice.

Room was nice but small. Was in a twin room and so had a single bed. Corridor was a little noisy as some American tourists thought it was reasonable to stand outside my door discussing their plans at 6am etc. Not the hotel's fault really but there are a lot of people coming and going.

Would stay here again. Had free wireless, a big plus for me.

We wanted an easy place to stay since we were arriving late in Joberg. Within 20 minutes of calling for the shuttle, we were at the hotel and happily checked in. Friendly & helpful staff, good food at the restaurant, 24 hour room service (a bonus when you arrive at 11 pm). Lobby design is sort of modern Afro-Industrial, rooms are very comfortable and clean. Soundproofing is brilliant - the location is across the highway from the airport, but you hear neither jets nor traffic. The outdoor patio and wading pool is a very comfortable place to relax, though you don't expect it to be as you're next to an airport. As a new hotel, the only hiccup when we stayed was the liquor license wasn't in yet, but that should be fixed soon, if it isn't already. Really, it's sort of a small oasis, for a fraction of what the hotels attached to the terminals cost.
