Firstly, let me say I booked the other Protea Airport hotel on my way to and from Zim and do not make the same mistake I did. They would not let me transfer my reservation. I did stay at the other hotel on my way down but on return I was traveling with a friend and staying at this hotel...

A Marriott hotel, seriously? Granted that a weary traveller wishes for a good bed, a welcoming room with at least a bottle of water and a good shower. However, after navigating the brainless and long immigration process in TRANSIT at O R TAMBO Airport, arriving at the reception counter of Protea hotel was another wait. We were lucky to have...

I was so happy to see the hotel after 24 hours of flying, but that's not the basis for my review. Wonderful friendly staff helpful with every request I made. Since you are already inside through security and everything, you literally walk out from the hotel straight to your gate. I thought I would have more trouble finding it but...

You get what is promissed: accomodation to rest while waiting for the next flight. Just be sure that the airline is reliable to hold your luggage. You cannot get your checked baggage if you are staying in this hotel.

Hotel is very nice, clean, convenient. Easy access from arrivals and super easy access to departures. It was quiet and the hotel was prepared for my arrival. There were no electrical converters available due to them all being loaned out. They did offer to charge my phone in their office.
