Great upscale getaway

I was on a layover to another country in Africa, and just wanted to rest. It was great. The room was very nice and modern. It was comparable to an upscale hotel in New York City. The food was excellent. The bed was super comfortable...I didn't want to leave. There were a lot of sitting areas inside and out, with internet access, and also a nice gym. I will stay there again when I return.

Comfortable, brand new, well located.

2 minutes from the OR Tambo airport (Johannesburg). Great breakfast, friendly and helpful staff. Modern rooms and very quiet to have a great night sleep before catching a long flight. And after all, a complementary shuttle to the airport. Great hotel!!!

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 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.

Protea - Johannesburg airport location

This was the perfect hotel for a layover in Johannesburg. The location is about 5 minutes from the airport, the shuttle was very convenient although was not clearly identified as Protea. The hotel looks new, room was very clean with smart design. Highly recommend!

Great Hotel Great Location

Stayed one night on my way to Walvis Bay and then Swakopmund. Hotel is within sight of the airport. Except for the shower in the bedroom, it was just like a hotel room in the US

BOUTIQUE AIRPORT HOTEL

THE HOTEL WAS SUPER CHIC AND LITERALLY ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE JOHANNESBURG AIRPORT. NOT ALL OF JO BURG IS SAFE, BUT THE HOTEL WAS ABSOLUTELY SAFE AND PERFECT FOR OUR OVERNIGHT STAY BETWEEN FLIGHTS. THE RESTAURANT AND BAR WERE GREAT!

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.

Game census trip

Excellent! My flight from LHR to JNB landed around 7:30 am..too early to check into the Protea Hotel. But, after my long journey from GDL, one of the staff at the reception counter told me he had a clean room, and that I could check in. Wow.....it was really great to take a hot shower and get some sleep.

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.
