"A Peaceful Haven in Johannesburg"
The Protea Wanderers was a wonderful respite in the busy city of Johannesburg. My room was comfortable, quiet, and well-lit (a rarity in hotel rooms these days). Lux Transportation, the on-site transportation service, was on-time picking me up at the airport and generally concerned and accommodating in handling all my transportation needs, as well a […] reasonably priced. The food in the dining room was very good, and the staff was polite and helpful on every occasion. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Most helpful staff"
A good hotel, with very helpful staff and pleasant, comfortable rooms,as long as you're on one of the upper floors. Don't bother with the food, which is poor and expensive.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice hotel in the heart of the city"
It was goodGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff was most courteous and helpful. The room was spacious and well-appointed. The only problem was finding a live bug in a drawer as we were packing to leave.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good base to explore JNB"
Hotel well run and staff well trained. Only half of 2nd floor is non-smoking, so 2nd floor elevator lobby stinks of cigarettes. Hotel should make entire floor smoking or non-smoking. Security was good, felt safe the whole time. Breakfast buffet was good but pricey. Great gym, although it is located in the garage which is odd.Genuine Expedia guest review
"central to major shopping malls"
My stay was quite comfortable, the butlers/concierge were awesome. The only problem i encountered was the attitude of a waiter during breakfast who seemed to have a problem with responding to my request for a cup of tea.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I requested a double bed and had to sleep in a single bed. The service in the restaurant was very slow and seemed like they did not care.Genuine Expedia guest review
"clean and compy, great buffet"
It's not walkable to the nearest Gautrain station, but they offer a shuttle that runs about every 90 minutes, but not at all on weekends... More of a business hotel here. Not a lot in the area, a few small restaurants several blocks away. But the hotel has a great buffet breakfast (dinner is a little weak). Romms clean, comfortable and reliable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The breakfast was too expensive at Rand 155. The twin beds, while comfortable, are just a little larger than a bunk bed. We had to demand that the beds be separated as they were together under one headboard and we were two people in the room (ladies) unrelated to each other.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
GREAT hOTEL, FRIENDLY STAFF BAD RESTAURANT FOOD AND BAD SERVICE IN RESTAURANTGenuine Expedia guest review
"Is the Hotel staff doing a favor?"
Checking in staff were very businesslike and with no smile ; we felt as though they were doing us a favor. otherwise, good hotel, clean and matter of fact.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Needs a facelift and some management expertise"
The hotel pictures on the Expedia website are not good reflections of the hotel. It's much older and needs updating. Front desk/check in and check out was slow and irritating. Needs more supervision to become efficient. Front desk was messy and did not promote an image of professionalism.Genuine Expedia guest review
conveniently located and very clean. food at restaraunt was delicious but a bit expensive.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel for business or pleasure, well located,"
EXPEDIA advertize Free WIFI but they wanted to charge me on check-out. When I rejected the charge they said that only 100mb was free. Luckily I had a copy of my reservation with me and they removed the charge, the "office manager" was very unpleasant about this and that left a bad taste in my mouth.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Highly recommended as a safe alternative"
A large and well-kept hotel in the protected territory of the Wanderers with a nice restaurant and good service.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, but Isolated"
Hotel is very nice, but very much isolated from other restaurants. * It is a $50 cab ride to and from the airport. No shuttle services is offered.Genuine Expedia guest review
When leaving the hotel at 06.00 and hanging the "make up room" sign on the door when returning at 13.00 I would have expected the room to have been made up.Genuine Expedia guest review
Reception needs to improve service speed, otherwise good service and great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet with a good view"
I asked for a room facing the Wanderers Club on the 6th floor. Although there are no balconies there is a good view of this grand sports club and beyond to the southern and eastern horizons. The reception staff were very helpful and friendly and got me through to 1-800 numbers in Canada immediately on request. The hotel grounds are directly alongside […] the Wanderers Club and both areas have access security together with a security presence that is apparent. The club is located within 10 minute drives to two of Johannesburg's impressive malls in Rosebank and Sandton and there are many restaurants in both areas. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great staff who all knew my name."
Great staff and location.I have been staying there for 8 years now .Genuine Expedia guest review
Toilet leaked, lots of traffic noise. So a little noisyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Some excellent service and some VERY good value"
I visited Jo'burg for business and medical tourism and chose Protea Wanderers based totally on cost and location. So I was very surprised by the excellent quality of the food, some outstanding service, good security and a more than reasonable standard of facilities/rooms etc. I'd stay here again. Thoroughly enjoyed it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Found the hotel very pleasant and will recommend itGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Clean and comfortable"
Decent hotel close to Rosebank and Melrose Arch. Hotel was clean and quiet. Good shower which is important to me and a comfy bed. Wifi wasnt working at first but then was given a voucher which enabled me to use it thereafter. Hotel restaurant is over-priced in my opinion and food was average.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was very nice and the restaurant was a good deal as well with the exception of Breakfast. My only complaints was that Breakfast cost more than supper 170 Rand and the airport shuttle cost 470 Rand. Other than these 2 small issues the hotel was in a safe area and convenient to shops and eateries. The hotel restaurant was good for lunch and […] supper not overpriced and the food and portions were outstanding. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very good service"
Very good stay. Registration very efficient. All staff courteous. Rooms were clean and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Sandton and the highway"
We had a pleasant (and reasonably priced) evening meal where the waiter was not exactly on the ball (e.g. removing the bottle of wine when there was still half a glass in it). In contrast, I thought the breakfast was a bit overpriced by comparison with other hotels I have stayed in. I was also disappointed in the bandwidth of the WiFi -- it was far […] more reliable for me to use my phone as a modem. In balance, though, this was a pleasant enough stay.

"Nice hotel, good facilitys"
Stayed for 2 nights, on a very hectic schedule the staff were very accomadatingGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was wonderful however we ate dinner at the restaurant the first night we were there and we're horribly disappointed. One meal was badly burned, the other two were tasteless. We ate out every evening after that. Pity because it would have been good to just relax and eat in every evening. Otherwise, everything was goodGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel at reasonable rates"
Nice hotel for business stays in Johannesburg, close to Oxford Road, Rosebank and Sandton. The gym is usually rather busy, but the rest of the hotel is clean and comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A week of business and pleasure"
Me and my son were here for a business trip and a trade fair. The location of the Hotel was perfect as it was not far from Melrose Arch, a haven of great restaurants and shopping, not far from Mandela Square, also a great place to eat and shop and enjoy the high spirited evenings of Johannesburg. Was a memorable experience, overall.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Value for money."
Front Office staff needs to be well informed and friendly. Initially when I showed them the booking, they said it was not there. Then they checked to finally retrieve it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
No room service after 11pm. Otherwise very pleasant hotel,Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel and even greter position."
Been back for four consecutive years and would go back again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great space and ambience"
WonderfulGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was nice but it is not close to anything. The travel is expensive if you don't have a car especially to and from the airport . And if you want to go anywhere it will cost you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was a nice few days in the hotel right before the new year. Good gym, nice swimming pool, good breakfasts! YOu can actually buy just whatever you want (e.g. i eat only fruits for breakfast) and not pay for everything. So , i highly recommend it. There was a slight confusion about shuttle buses, they didn't want to give it for free initially, but […] it was quickly solved. They've got free buses to the train station, from where you can travel very comfortably to the airport Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very comfortable room and helpful house keeping staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had booked on a tour of South Africa that met up on Sunday 28 October. We went a day early and did a trip to the Lion Park (the hotel's suggestion) where we were able to play with and stroke lion cubs in their enclosure, which was an amazing experience. The hotel was clean and welcoming. All the staff were without exception happy, helpful and attentive. […] It provided excellent value for money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very pleasant and good value tourist hotel"
I had a very pleasant stay in this hotel and really cannot find fault with it. For me the ideal thing was its location because I was attendng an event at the Wanderers Club, which is right next door. It is also fairly close to the shopping centre at Sandton City and the excellent Gautrain service that runs from there.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Quality Hotel"
Great service, great food and comfortable and clean roomsGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice from far, far from nice"
Comfortable room, but the service in the restaurant is shockingly slow. True Africa pace. Stayed there more than once, complained about the service but they don't improve. I'll stay somewhere else from now on.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
