Reviewed 4 November 2015 via mobile

The rooms were nicely styled with a modern feel. We had a plumbing issue as our basin did not drain. The rooms were nice and quiet and although quite small had everything we needed. Negatives were an extremely slow and inefficient check in and extremely slow dinner service although the food was good. We did not have any breakfast at...

Reviewed 4 November 2015

We stayed over before our international flight. The check-in staff need a special mention, the check-in was probably the best I have ever experienced, although it was busy when we checked in. The shuttle to the airport is convenient and on time. Our room was nothing special and on par for the price range, but we were overlooking the A380s...

Spent two nights here while transiting for our South Africa safari. The hotel staff were very pleasant and accommodating throughout our stay. The staff always tried to please. We had a double room with a king bed (Room 124). The room is one of cleanliness but very modest and simple, providing basic comforts. Not luxurious by any means, but very...

We have stayed here many times as frequent visitors to SA. The hotel is quirky with all it's plan memorabilia. Rooms are great and being next to the airport, sound proof.

I went to this hotel only because it is now part of the Marriott chain, and I only needed 15000 points for 2 nights. And it is a great place! The room is nice, shuttle bus is perfect. I can recommend it to anybody. It is not such a big pain that the hotel is far from the city, since...

Excellent choice for an overnight stop at Jo'burg airport. Friendly staff, comfy bed and decent food on offer. The one strange thing is the fact that the shower area in the room is only separated from the bed by a curtain. I've never seen that in a hotel before, and I'm unsure why they've made the rooms in this way....

Just stayed there for one night but won't be back. The rooms were filthy, the bathroom was definitely not cleaned before I checked in. The wood finishes were scratched and chipped. Looked as though the "fruit basket" had been sitting there for a few days. To add breakfast on to your already pricey accommodation (compared to the same quality elsewhere)...

I'm on a low budget, self funded business trip to Southern Africa. I checked in to the Protea as I had an overnight in Joburg with an early morning flight so thought best to stay near the airport.
