About Protea Hotel OR Tambo

The Protea Hotel OR Tambo has prime positioning near Johannesburg's international airport of the same name.

As such, this hotel is the ideal base for business travellers and leisure guests, from where they are free to explore South Africa's cultures, history and natural allure.

Huge windows provide perfect views of the aeroplanes taking off and landing at the OR Tambo International Airport, enhancing the 'international traveller' feel.
