Protea Hotel Transit O.R. Tambo Airport


Short-term layover relaxation at O.R. Tambo

Located behind the immigration building inside O.R.

With no visa requirements, its absurdly convenient location, and rooms available for short-term and overnight use—travellers will have no need to spend their layover on uncomfortable airport benches. 

International travel can be a particularly daunting experience—especially when your itinerary involves various connecting flights and extended layovers. By the time you arrive at your destination, guests are more often than not exhausted from their travels and this can hamper your overall holiday experience.
