Protea Hotel OR Tambo Airport


Much more than a layover in Jozi

Long layovers spent on uncomfortable departure lounge chairs and tirelessly safeguarding luggage is a thing of the past thanks to the Protea Hotel at O.R. Tambo International Airport. Check in for a few hours of relaxation, overnight while you wait for your next flight, or enjoy an extended stay thanks to all the creature comforts on offer. 

While South Africa’s primary international airport is often used to get into the country and onwards towards more tourist-focused locations such as Kruger National Park, Cape Town, and Durban —that’s not to say there isn’t a lot to see in Johannesburg and Pretoria. Enjoy world-class dining, entertainment, and the vibrant culture and eclectic history evident throughout both cities. 

Just 6km from the airport and 800m from a Gautrain station that will take you into the heart of Johannesburg and Pretoria in half an hour, the hotel showcases time-conscious travel at its best. Choose between their First Class Deluxe, Business Class Twin/King, Suite, and Universal Access accommodation options. Each room is equipped with an en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning, desk, laptop safe, telephone, Wi-Fi, satellite TV, hairdryer, and tea/coffee-making facilities.

  • Only 6km from O.R. Tambo International Airport—ideal for a stopover or for a few hours rest between flights

  • Variety of room options available
