Protea Hotel OR Tambo Kempton Park Reviews
Convenient location near the airport May 22, 2010
This is a newer hoted situated across the highway from the Johannesburg (Tambo) International Airport. We stayed here overnight during a layover on our way to Namibia. The entire hotel is designed after an airport. The elevator had oxygen masks hanging from the ceiling which creeped me out a little bit, but the rest of it was clean and interestingly decorated. There is a small restaurant that serves single dishes along with a small buffet, depending on how hungry you are. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful. As my colleague and I checked in, they had originally put us in one bed...sort of awkward for the two us, considering we were not a couple. But they were nice enough to take the time to find us a room with two beds, along with a curtain for the shower. Apparently, the showers in this hotel are not all covered. All of them are open (no doors to close the shower), but only some of them have a curtain separating it from the rest of the room. Other than the slight weirdness of the shower, the beds were amazingly comfortable and the room was clean and well kept. The hotel offers free wi-fi as well. Overall a very quiet and clean hotel!
