Great airport Hotel

We stayed at the Protea OR Tambo in between flights at Tambo Intl in Joberg. The place is clean and modern. The staff is very pleasant. The restaurant was surprisingly very good, as I feel that most hotel restaurants often lack quality. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel if you need to be near the airport.

Awesome Experience

Right next to airport with a great shuttle service 5 min to hotel. Staff was very helpful and food was amazing at a great value. Room was a little over $100 USD and would have had to pay about $250 in the U.S.

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.

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.

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.

Outstanding place for airport stay

This was a very nice motel. Great breakfast bar. Clean rooms. For the price I don't think you can get any better. Best for overnight stays for airport. Not sure how well it would work for visiting Joburg.
