            I have stayed at the Protea Transit Hotel in Johannesburg many times. It is always a good sanctuary between flights. Although the hotel only has rooms, residents have easy access to the Departures level of the airport with plenty of choices for meals etc.

            We were flying to Thailand from Jhb after arriving from Cpt....we did the booking & spent R2000 for 1 night,we only saw afterwards when the confirmation email came that we had to fly from 1 international airport to another.Very false advertising,we had to spend our night on OR Tambo airport on a cold night before we could enjoy our vacation in Thailand.I am so disappointed!

            Good day Ricardo Thank you for taking the time to write this review. Apologies about the events that transpired and any inconveniences you may have experienced. Because of our location inside the international terminal at transfers, passengers would get off one flight, then stay inside the international terminal. Sleep at our hotel, then the next day, get their flight to the next international destination. Cape Town, is domestic, therefore the airport rules would only allow you to enter the international terminal 3 hours before your flight to Thailand. Next time please call the hotel and we can assist that you stay at Protea Hotel OR Tambo Airport situated outside the airport. Thank you.

            This is probably my 10th stay here. I normally stay for the convenience of not dealing with JBurg airport immigration while I wait for my early morning flight. Rooms are really good, however my only negatives are that the check in process always seems to take a long time. My most recent was 20 minutes due to a queue and a slow checkin process. Also, something the hotel could consider, is that since it is hit and miss as to whether the security will let you into the transit area to get food, the hotel could consider minibar supplies or a relationship with the transit cafes to provide food. Twice I have arrived and been stuck in my room with no food until the next morning. Having said that, this most recent visit, I asked and they said that you can tell the security that you are staying in hotel and they let you through and register you in a book and then you can come back through the security area. This may not happen everytime though. Johannesburg airport is notoriously inconsistent.

We appreciate your patience and understanding regarding the security issue around the airport. In most instances, the airport regulations is that all guests are allowed to more freely when they are in procession of their passport and boarding pass.

            Airport Transit Hotel”
            This is a great hotel in the middle of Johannesburg international terminal. I transit through South Africa a lot and don't like the idea of having to go through security and immigration each time. The hotel is in a quiet part of the airport and you don't hear the planes. The only downside is that there is no eating in this hotel. There are lots of cafes in the transit lounge which does require you to go through the xray part but if you have no bags, that is easy enough. Just be aware that to get back to the hotel you have to go back through the xray security area. You have to tell them you are staying in the hotel and they open a side door. Maybe a hotel sign would help.

            My wife and I have stayed at this hotel many times over recent years. It is a welcome and convenient place to transit between flights from Australia and onward to other parts of Africa. With easy access to the departure level of the airport and the restruants etc, it is very convenient. While the overall aspect of the hotel is great, they miss the boat on the finer points of maintenance and customer care. We really did not appreciate jackhammers working outside our window at 10.00pm during our stay. Reception staff seemed unable to do anything about stopping the noise. But we will stay there again should we pass through the Johannesburg Airport. There always seems to be a light not working or something else that spoils the overall aspect of the time there. Management needs to give more attention to the rooms and room staff and less time sitting in their offices.

            Good Transit Stop”
            Cleanliness, Convenience and Comfort
            We had about 20 hours between flights into Johannesburg and out to Entebbe. After a 14 hour flight from Australia, the clean comfort of the transit hotel was most welcome. A hot shower and clean sheets on the King Size bed were most welcome. We slept well. The hotel has no dining facilities but easy access to the departures level of the airport with the assortment of coffee shops and other eateries. This is a regular stop for us on our trips to Africa.
