                if you are looking for a hotel at the airport this is the one! 5 minute drive away with a free shuttle service
                perfect hotel if you need one at the airport. The hotel has an aviation theme which I love and I always choose a room high up facing the airport. Rooms are average in size, well equipped and beds are comfy. Bathroom is open to the room but can be closed off with a curtain. All in all great hotel is one needs to be at the airport

                We arrived at the hotel and were welcomed with a big warm smile from the porter who was very helpful. The front office staff gave us the same warm welcome with the big smile. They were very helpful in giving us a quiet room. The room itself was not very big but had all the comfort you require after a 16 hr flight. The beds were great . Shower had the raindrop fall . Wonderful. The food in the restaurant was excellent. We had dinner which was great and they also have a good wine list. The breakfast buffet was fantastic. They offered a wide choice.. and if it was not there they would prepare it for you . The theme of the restaurant was' the warehouse' and I must say they have done it well. We had a wonderful stay there and would highly recommend it.

There was refreshments in the lobby as you checked in. Small and open restraurant with buffet and order from menu options. Very compact but nice and clean guest rooms with shower and separate toilet area. Hotel was decorated to reflect old airport hanger...with industrial design.

                The hotel is less than 1km from hte airport. But also it sits next to a highway. Consequently the rooms facing airport and highway are very noisy. Opt for the backside of the hotel. Location is convenient, however it is more or less in 'little nigeria'! Meaning going out for dinner at night might be an adventure on its own. If you want to avoid this adventure you would have to stick with the hotel's restaurant

                We were pleasantly surprised by the Protea Hotel OR Tambo. Regular shuttles to and from the airport with only a 5min transit time. The hotel has a pool and gym which are useful when you're waiting for a flight. The food was expensive and the rooms were not as sound proof as I would have hoped for an airport hotel, but I would definitely still stay there again!

The service was below average, this happend with me during my stay; When I checked in I got a room number but could not enter the room they give me the wrong room number. It took one hour before I got my simple food in the restaurant. I asked for a wake-up call at 05.00hrs, did not got any call. They put the wrong room number on the list and the people in the other room where not happy with the early call.

Hotel is very close to the airport, free shuttle is every 30 mins,just a 10 mins ride. Hotel is not big, only one restaurant. so I feel bored after two meals. Staffs r pretty nice. Nice room, good room size, clean. Only problem is the sound proof problem.

                For an airport hotel, Protea Hotel OR Tambo fared well in my book. I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel and service. For the amount of money paid for the room, I felt it was worth every cent. It might be a 5 mins drive away from work, but it is definitely not a problem with the shuttle bus provided between 6am to 11pm.

The staff were pretty average and not really interested in hearing complaints about internet or lack there of.
