I stayed overnight here because our flight landed at 10pm and we had a 10am flight out the next day. It was very convenient b/c we didn't have to do passport control in the am. The place was a bit creepy - there was no one in the hotel. The room is small but we didn't care b/c it was...

Stayed here 1 night while in-transit to Livingstone. Very quiet and modern hotel. The rooms are typical of Marriott. The hotel is conveniently located in the terminal. You can walk to restaurants and shops located in the terminal. Please note that this is an in-transit hotel. You can't go to baggage claim from this hotel. Also, be sure to print...

We spent two nights here when waiting for Kruger pickup and for leaving Johannesburg for Cape Town. We had an extremly heavy thunderstorm during one of the nights which was nice to see from floor level 5, looking towards the airport.

But... the room was spacious, the restaurant food (Ostrich Fillet) was amazing and the staff was beyond friendly! The view from our room was over a part of the airport,and it was really interesting to watch. It's a little noisy, being so close to the airport, but the rooms are well insulated against the noise, so we slept like babies....

Good value hotel located INSIDE the departures area of JNB. Dont mix this Protea up with the other Protea OUTSIDE the departures terminal. Looks like quite few reviews of these two hotels are mixed up, meant for the other hotel! There are two accommodation floors in this hotel 3rd and 4th floor. For an airport hotel, it is very good...

We stayed twice in this hotel, but will stay somewhere else next time. There are no extra beds given for children and even the king size is not that comfortable for our family.

Close to OR Tambo while in transit, we arrived at 18h00 our room was not ready, single beds still being converted to a double bed, we had to wait in corridor. The shower needs a good scrub in some of the corners. Pillows was soft and very comfortable. The airport transfer very convenient. The 500mb WiFi cap a bit disappointing.
