Convenient for a medium-long connection at OR Tamb
Posted Jul 25, 2016
It is a very convenient hotel for one having a medium-long term connection at O.R. Tambo Airport. Actually I had a reservation outside the airport facilities, but arriving at the airport I learnt that I needed a special authorization to enter in South Africa with my daughter 10 years old, so found the Protea within the airport facilities and with no needs to go through immigration, so it was perfect location for a 12 hours connection. The hotel has direct access to the duty free area and although does not offer any catering, it is just a matter of walking a few meters to reach out the duty free area, where there are 24 hours open restaurant / coffe shop. Highly recommend for those just connecting in Johannesburgh. Much simply and easier than going throught immigration and staying in a hotel outside the airport. You just wake up a few minutes before your boarding time at that is it. No need for shuttle and worries with timing for going through security, immigration.
