Generally, at an airport hotel all you need is a clean, reasonably quiet room. Usually you're just there for a night or two, waiting for a flight. The Protea OR Tambo is fine for that, just don't expect more. The front desk staff seemed confused or inexperienced, the dining area & bar are pretty basic. Common areas seemed to be...

Convenient hotel near OR Tambo airport. If you're just spending a night in Joburg, and would like to stay near the airport, this hotel is for you. Hotel's design is creative, industrial and artistic. Rooms are a bit small, and if you don't mind having to shower right outside the toilet, beside the bed, then you're good to go. :)...

Very convenient if your staying for a night in Johannesburg. They have free airport shuttle to/from OR Tambo airport which comes every 30 mins. Although we arrived early in the morning and check in time starts after 2pm, they arranged for a city tour around Johannesburg (for a fee) and made sure our rooms are ready when we got back....

We stayed 1 night before catching our flights out the next day. The hotel itself was OK, although the decor/theme was a little weird and the servers uinforms were even weirder. We kept thinking we were asking the construction crew for drinks and food. The hotel is within sight of the airport but it was a 7 to 8 minute...

We used the hotel as a base for the SADC business trip. The hotel is interesting and different. Room was clean and comfortable. Note it is not attached to airport but about 15 minutes by shuttle. The restaurant downstairs was terrible. Service slow and rude.

Unique airport theme throughout hotel, which is located close to Tambo airport. Clean and modern rooms, yet can be a bit noisy from highway traffic if room is facing airport. Very nice, luxurious pool area, but again a bit too noisy to relax. Breakfast buffet was good (extra cost)
