This place is not a 4 star. The room has thin cheap towels. Products are limited just one face wash, shampoo, conditioner and a soap bar. There was match at Loftus every restaurant nearby was packed. We waited over 45 minutes for a veggie wrap it was cold, tasteless and frankly horrible. We complained. We gave up waiting for a manager. The restaurant was empty! (Not suprising). The left hand definitely didn't know what the right hand is doing. What a shame....such a missed match day special opportunity. Lethargy and frankly disorganization rules here. It's a 3 star and a lowgrade at that. What's good. The beds, the shower....free parking. That's it! Oh and the Sky bar is fun....that's it!!

I was travelling to Namibia and used this hotel for an overnight stay. It is about a 35 minute taxi ride from Johannesburg airport at night. Almost all the distance was on a secure highway. The hotel is located in a very good location in Pretoria, next to a sports stadium. The central part of Pretoria was an easy 5 minute ride away. The hotel is in fact located in a complex with a sports stadium, restaurants, bars, shopping, grocery, and other amenities. It is very secured as it is cordoned of by fencing and security. The staff was pleasant, greeted me and smilingly gave me my room details. I had a beautiful clean room with fresh bedding, a shower, some amenities, and a good night's sleep. There was a nice sky bar with good late night food and music. It was nice sit in the bar and enjoy the Pretoria Skyline. There is a pool in the roof. Breakfast was a good spread. It was a nice experience at this hotel.

The rooms are spotless and in excellent condition. Enough hangers and clean bathrooms. The service at dinner and breakfast is friendly and it is clear employees in the dining area do their very best. The manner in which they address you is efficient and respectful yet friendly and professional. The manager is hands-on and involved with her guests. This is not my first visit, nor will it be my last. Thank you!

I booked on recommendation from a colleague and wasn’t disappointed. I arrived late, but the check in desk were warm and welcoming. The room was spacious and comfortable, the bed extremely comfortable and there was a great view across Pretoria. Breakfast was excellent, with an excellent selection including a bar where you could order eggs cooked to your requirements. The choice of hot and cold foods was great and the service exemplary. On two nights I ate at the rooftop restaurant which was also excellent. A small menu but catering for all tastes. I can highly recommend the steaks! Very reasonably priced too.

We just needed a decent nights sleep after arriving in Johannesburg on the way to a trip up north. Protea more than met our expectations and was an excellent value. Clean hotel and rooms, very friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast. The hotel, as we learned, is very close to a sports stadium which for us was fine as there wasn’t a game on when we were there. It is also attached to a complex of restaurants, bars, and a Checkers grocery which was very convenient.

We stayed for 2 nights. It seemed a reasoable choice for when there wasn't a game next door. It is a modern and clean hotel in a nice little business development that is bright, cheerful and safe. From the top floor there is a lovely view of the Union Buildings among the jacarandas, that were flowering; the restaurant (Skyline) was OK but very noisy. Efficient and friendly staff. Bathrooms have absolutely lethal floors, very slippery and the towels have seen better days.

I am actually writing this review 9 days into my stay. It is close to 1 am and it it impossible to sleep due to people laughing, talking loud and slamming doors. Every night it doesn’t quiet down until we’ll past one. The walls are paper thin and you can hear people talking as though they are outside. Very sad because the staff are extremely nice. Will not stay again regardless of it being a Marriott! Disappointing.

We arrived at the Protea Hotel after 34+ hours of travel for a one night stay. The hotel was comfortable and the internet worked well. The only problem we had was getting transportation to the train station for the next stage of our journey. When we went to the hotel desk to book a ride, we were told that there were no taxis in Pretoria. The fellow on the front desk seemed less than interested in helping us. However, a young lady overheard our situation and after 20 minutes, we had a ride.
