I recently stayed at this hotel while attending a conference and it was a pleasant stay. The rooms are spacious, beds comfortable and cleaned well. One thing to be aware of is the lack of elevators to the first floor however the concierge staff will happily carry your bags to your room. The hotel is quite open plan with the...

Second time I checked into this hotel. Both times had to change rooms because AC was not working. When getting into the room, the AC was not even turned on even though it was 40 degrees outside. Everything in the room was hot. When turned on, the AC provided only warm air. Tried several alternative rooms, finally got into one...

The lights in the conference rooms need an upgrade the yellow bulbs though rustic are not practical. Energy savers would be best. The showers are a little small and a little dingy the showers need an upgrade with the titles. The aircons in the room are old style and very noisy silent ones would be good. Staff are friendly.

Protea Hotel does not gives a good impression from the outside, but when get inside it is really nice, value for money hotel. Everyone and everything was lovely! It is located close to city center, but it does not matter as there is nothing to see in the city center for tourists.
