No heating in cold spell

The room was comfortable but very cold. A call to the maintenance department was promptly answered but he just reset the switch settings which failed to get the room heating working. Otherwise the hotel was OK

OK for a transient, airport hotel but...

Everything was average. But upon checkin staff required that they photocopy our credit card and put up 300 rand in cash to cover added expenses. Allowing someone to photocopy a credit card is a serious security breach. Then on top of that to require another 300 in rand in cash just created suspicions on our part and added uneeded tensions to our stay.

Great hotel nearby airport

Very nice hotel really close to the OR Tambo Airport. We were picked up, after check in we needed to go to the city and we were kindly dropped off in the nearby train station for free. Rooms very clean, nice environment in the bar. The only cons free internet is only a few Mb. Would be better free ulimited access.

Great AIrport Hotel

We needed a hotel for our last night in South Africa and this was perfectly positioned at a fair price. We enjoyed our stay BUT the bar/restaurant area is way too noisy. However the aircraft/airport theme is great fun.

Good for airport overnight stay

We arrived to JNB at night, got the hotel shuttle and left in the morning with the hotel shuttle. We ordered one room with three beds but the hotel informed us that all the rooms have only two beds. They were helpfull in adding a matress to the room. The rooms are clean, small , functional for overnight stay . The bathroom is open into the room.

Lovely room, POOR internet

I am not traveling as a tourist. I have a computer, cellphone, and other essential items that need charging and there is only ONE outlet in the room in an inconvenient place. Internet is free, but requires an enormous, arcane username and password that have to be typed in every time you go to use it! That's absurd. The internet is so slow it's scarcely worth the time. Room is very striking and bed was superbly comfortable. Fabulous spread for breakfast. But bottom line for me is good outlets, lots of them, and free, easily accessible and fast internet. If you're serious about those things, go elsewhere.

Outstanding Hotel, Near Airport

Far exceeded my expectations. Shuttle buses are straight out the front door of airport, past the Intercontinental Hotel. Quick trip to Protea. Really cool ambience -- aviation theme. Even have yellow oxygen mask in the bathroom (it's a joke -- and when you see it, it's funny). Totally clean. New amenities. Quiet. Service was superb. Room service dinner was delicious. Breakfast was top-notch.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

When you leave the airport front doors, walk like you're going to the (way too expensive) Intercontinental Hotel, but to the left of the building. There's another building where you wait for the shuttle bus to the Protea. It's not a problem, but it helps if you know the drill.

Great place

The hotel was very close to the airport and the free shuttle runs every 30 mins. There is a decent gym which was nice after 30 hours of travel. The room service dinners were very good and the buffet breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Cool airport theme decor. Great pool area and gardens with tons of outdoor seating.
