Photo Review Protea Hotel Transit Johannesburg Airport (Terminal A)

Courtesy of my forced stopover due to the mistakes by South African Airways, I was booked into the ‘Protea Hotel Transit’ at Johannesburg O.R. Tambo Terminal A.

The hotel is INSIDE security, which makes it very handy for people stuck in transit (like me!) It is just on the left when you enter Terminal A.

Together with me that night at 11PM were a bunch of stranded travelers and only one agent on the night shift. He did his best and worked the queue rather quickly.

Protea Hotels were just taken over by Marriott and it took him a while to enter my Marriott Rewards number.

The actual rooms were on another level inside the terminal and it was a long walk to my room (355) that night. It felt like a mile!

The room was very modern and well-appointed. It was smaller than a room at my favorite airport hotel, the Sheraton Frankfurt Airport, but easily as well done.

I felt that the air quality in the terminal and in the hotel itself was bad, as my allergies were triggered the whole time I was in either (but they stopped right when I left the airport). It might be an insecticide that is being used.

I only had a couple of hours in the terminal, but if you have a layover at JNB, then this is a convenient option and you can stay pampered without venturing to the dangerous town of Johannesburg 🙂
