Friendly staff, convenient location

Only 5 minutes from Johannesburg airport by free shuttle. Very friendly staff, clean hotel, and great view of the airport.

Great stopover with personality

Room: Good side - It was Clean, tidy, modern and comfortable. Also the functional windows are a rare treat in a hotel. Bad/odd side - The bathroom shower is open to the bedroom so there's not much privacy or control over breezes/keeping warm in the shower. Also you can hear airplanes take off so if it bothers you, seek a room away from the tarmac. Staff: Overall, the hotel staff was excellent; super friendly and helpful. Amenities: The interior foyer/bar space has character; sort of a mix of an airport hanger and a modern/industrial style brick steak house. The restaurant had tasty and fresh food, though a bit on the pricey side. The gym was a great spot to get a bit of a sweat. Fairly good facility with functional equipment (2 treadmills, 2 bikes/cardio machines, a rower) and weights. Also the outdoor space by the pool was a mini oasis just beyond the highway and airport bustle. Location: IF you want to be close to the airport for a quick and comfy overnight stay for an early flight, it's a great spot. Take advantage of the free airport shuttle. If you need to go to the airport at an odd hour they will arrange a special one for you.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

For hotel shuttles: Ignore the people who want to help you with your bags when you arrive at the airport. Go straight out the main exit to the tax/transit area, taking the covered walkway across the street and continuing straight on the path that is to the left of the Intercontinental Hotel, into a small waiting space where the hotel shuttles come do pick ups.

The location is good but the disorganised shuttle and unhelpful staff ruin it

The hotel is close enough to airport terminals, at approximately a 5min drive. However, the shuttle stops early in the evening and is very disorganised during the day (you can wait for more than 40min after the scheduled time) so that hotel is much less convenient than the more expensive ones located in the terminals. The staff is particularly unhelpful and unfriendly. Your choice of smoking/non smoking room will not be respected and overall the service is well below Protea's standards.

Great Budget Hotel

The shuttle was on time, check in was easy with no wait, they checked us in early which was great after such a long flight. The meals in the restaurant; dinner and breakfast were good quality and value for money. The staff were helpful, polite and welcoming. Can't fault this hotel, it does what it says on the tin and was completely fit for purpose.

Enroute to safari

Though tired on arrival, we settled in quickly. The room was clean, the check in/out prompt, bar slow but nice , reasonable and food average. Small but adequate fitness center.

Comfortable stopover

We were exhausted after a long flight and were grateful that we were so near the airport. The check in was fine but could be a bit friendlier. We had a few problems with the room which were rectified and the Joe and Martin were apologetic and helpful and offered us a complimentary treat. The staff were really lovely. The best part was the very comfortable bed. The room was very modern and not too big but we didn't mind as we were only there for a night. We had a very good breakfast which was a bit expensive but the dinner menu looked reasonable. Overall a very good stay and would definitely stay again.

Night stop

Hotel had obviously overbooked - only room available was one for those with disabilities - 'the bed is a bit low sir' - gratefully taken as the woman next to me was being redirected to another hotel, and there were mutterings behind - Luckily I had been quickest off the bus. Courtesy bus was half hourly back to the airport - DO NOT be fooled by the proximity to the terminal, it is a long drive round. Made it onto the bus in the morning only because I was first in the queue and my suitcase had been loaded in the back, while everyone else rushed the door.. Too many people to fit in the bus. A good choice for a one night stopover, but if you have a plane to catch at a busy time you might consider booking a taxi....

Great stopover hotel

This hotel was great! It was fairly close to the hotel. We waited about 15 minutes at the airport (near the Protea Hotel sign at the bus terminal) for the free shuttle. It was a five minute drive to the hotel. The hotel was great, clean, and a perfect place to sleep when we arrived at night in Jo-burg after 30 hours of travel.

No room!

I reserved and prepaid for my room in January. When I arrived in June, they had no room for me although they did have my reservation and payment information. In short, they sold my room even though I already paid for it. They did send me to another hotel without charge.
