More about Protea Hotel Balalaika Sandton

An overview

Protea Hotel Balalaika Sandton promises a little bit of country in the heart of upscale Sandton. The hotel is located about 40 minutes from Tambo International Airport and within walking distance to swanky Sandton City Shopping Center and Nelson Mandela Square. Guests can find hundreds of restaurants and shops as well as movie theaters and other entertainment options. Sandton is also home to a number of interesting art galleries, all a short stroll from the hotel. Dining options at the hotel include the Colony Restaurant, where a full English breakfast is served, and the Bull Run Restaurant with its own in-house butchery and hearty dishes. Choose between the two swimming pools for a relaxing dip after a long day of shopping. Protea Hotel Balalaika Sandton is a home away from home for visitors to Johannesburg.
