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
"Can't wait to go back"
The hotel and staff were excellent. It was always a pleasure to return to the tranquility of the hotel after a busy day. The staff were always extremely friendly, courteous and helpful and made my stay one of the best I've had in Johannesburg. I will definitely go back and stay there when next I return to Johannesburg. I also felt very safe there.Genuine Expedia 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.

The food in the restuarant was very ordinary.Genuine Hotels.com 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
"Good for stop over"
The hotel was nice & in as good as an area as can be in Jo'berg. The hotel didn't recommend for us to do anything in town. The restaurant area was nice & the staff were friendly. I did think the breakfast was pricey. A good place to stay especially if you're there for the cricket. Also a bonus was the free wifi for 100mg, enough to check your email […] .

"A great Experience"
The hotel provided us with a great experience. The room, location as well as the staff were excellent. I can highly recommemd this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Exactly as expected. Cannot fault."
An apple a day wants to make me want to stay. Fantastic hotel in all ways. Highly recommended. Will go back.Genuine Expedia guest review
Fine hotel in a good location. On arrival the receptionist was a little moody . The room was fine and the hotel facilities were equally up to standard. Over eager housekeeping knocked on the door at 8AM and then opened the door at 8.30AM!!, which given that it was a holiday, was a bit annoying.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Protea Hotel Wanderes Johannesburg - good value"
We stayed at this hotel for the first time touring around SA. The location is perfect. Central and near good shopping areas. The immediate area is nice towards Rosebank / Sandton but Corlett Drive was not so great. The room was lovely and comfortable - more than we expected for the price. The hotel lobby has bespoke designer furniture you'd more expect […] in a botique hotel. There is an infinity pool and gym - both worth a visit. The receptionist staff were not that helpful and the hotel clearly needs some maintenance (toilet loose, shower leaking, had to change room keys twice etc). But very pleased overall and can recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Perfect location to stay for the cricket."
Good security within the grounds and surrounding club. Walk within the grounds to wanderers stadium. The club next door has great food and is a cheaper alternative. Great rooms and very quiet. Short walk to rosebank shopping and taxi to sandton (Nelson mandella sq). The best place to stay for the cricket with drinks at the wanderers club afterwards […] caps off a great day. Locals great and friendly. You may also get invited into a corporate box by a local. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel BUT"
Great hotel, comfortable, well located with beautiful surroundings BUT 2 SINGLE BEDS PUSHED TOGETHER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A DOUBLE BED. Its very uncomfortable to lie together for married couples, when their are single beds pushed together. Will have to ensure next time, that when a booking is made for a double bed, it is just that. What a dissapointment […] for such a nice hotel Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Will definately go back"
We spent 5nights and 6days we had a good time. The hotel staff were very welcoming. The hotel is quite spacious and the brochure doesnt do it much justice. Its unfornate that you need a taxi all the time to travel from the hotel. Breakfast and the internet are too expensive.Genuine Expedia guest review
very happy with service standard and position 5 th visit to hotel and will return againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
nice hotel but they need to clean the swimming pool as it was dirty every single day.Genuine Expedia guest review
Good service, I always use this hotel in Sandton. And the food is better than one year ago. Very good price for a 4 stars hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Gutes Preis Leistungs Verhältnis"
Alles war gut. Die Standard Zimmer sind zwar nicht sehr groß aber schön. Schade ist nur, dass das Doppelbett aus zwei zusammengestellten Betten bestand. Also nicht so gut wenn man mit seinem Liebsten zusammen reist.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"NOT FOR BUSINESS"
HOTEL IS FINE, FOOD AND SERVICE CORRECT. BUT IN S.XXI HOW CAN BE A HOTEL WITH NO FREE INTERNET? SPECIALLY FOR THOSE IN BUSINESS TRIPS IS NOT INTERESTING. BUT WORST THING IS THAT YOU PAY INTERNET BY MEGABYTE SO IF YOU TALK BY SKYPE WITH FAMILY / WORK PRICE BECOMES SAME AS THE COST OF THE ROOM, SO TOTALLY UNREASONABLE. ONCE WIFI WILL BE FREE HOTEL WILL […] BE INTERESTING. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"GOOD PRICE FOR VALUE"
IS A CONVENIENT HOTEL FOR BUSINESS, QUALITY - PRICE IS GOOD. PLACE IS NOT FAR FROM THE CENTRE AND SERVICES ARE CORRECT.ONLY THING TO IMPROVE IS THE WIFI CONNECTION, IS FREE ONLY FOR 100MB, AFTER THAT YOU NEED TO PAY. THIS IS NOT UPDATED ON THE STANDARDS REQUIRED FOR BUSINESS.BUT AS A GENERAL IS A GOOD HOTEL TO STAY IN JNBGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel mit Bewegungsfreiheit"
Ich war das erste Mal in Südafrika. Obwohl ich geschäftlich weltweit unterwegs bin, hatte ich durch verschiedene Informationen aus dem Internet doch einen ordentlichen Respekt vor dieser Reise. In Johannesburg ist es in Bezug Ausgehen eigentlich egal, welches 4* oder 5* Hotel man wählt. Es scheint grundsätzlich wirklich so zu sein, dass es ab der Dämmerung […] sehr gefährlich ist, das Hotelareal zu verlassen. Umso mehr bietet das Protea Wanderers die Möglichkeit, sich im angeschlossenen Wanderers Club in einem sehr großen Park mit verschiedenen Sportplätzen frei und gesichert zu bewegen. Es waren wirklich Grünflächen mit Blumen, Palmen und weiteren Pflanzen, wo man sich abends noch etwas bewegen konnte. Diese Möglichkeit fand ich als äußerst komfortabel gegenüber anderen Hotels. Ich ging öfters zum Fußballareal wo mehrere kleine Plätze inkl. Clubheim waren. Vom Hotel ca. 400 Meter entfernt. Auch im riesigen Wanderers Club Clubhaus, das direkt gegenüber dem Hotel liegt, kann man für 5-7€ sehr gut Abend Essen. Im Hotel auf der Terrasse am Pool übrigens auch. Und die Preise sind absolut fair. Das Einchecken funktionierte tadellos und schnell. Generell ist das Personal sehr freundlich. Vereinzelt gab es Nachlässigkeiten oder vergessene Arbeiten. Aber dies ist im Gesamten gesehen marginal. Alles in allem war ich sehr positiv vom Hotel überrascht. Bei meinem nächsten Aufenthalt in Joburg werde ich wieder dieses Hotel wählen.

"Nice hotel with a bad resturant"
Nice hotel in a good area. Service in at the front desk was very good, but not in the resturant and bar. We ordered a room with a kingsize bed and got twinbeds. The resturant had boaring food and terrible service. They say they have free internet, but you will only get 100 mb/day for free. I would not call that free internet when it runs out just after […] a few mins on Facebook. It's also quite expensive for internet, water etc compared to other hotels.

"No real complaints nor compliments"
It is a fine hotel to stay for a few days. Some of the staff is very friendly and welcoming, others are more formal. The transfers/transport offered are almost 5 times the price of metered taxi's. It is quite a hassle to convince the staff to order a taxi rather than to order inhouse transport. There is a little convenience shop in the hotel and dining […] possibilities.
