“Good, solid hotel.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 October 2012

This feels like a generic, good quality hotel. Newly built with modestly sized rooms, it's in an excellent location if staying to visit friends in the area (inc Pretoria Uni students) as its at the very heart of Hatfield. The centre and square are safe to walk around at night.

Overall, this hotel does exactly as you'd expect it to. We also got a very good rate, so if you're interested in this place, check the price on booking.com before using the Protea website as it seems the rates offered there are by far the most competitive.

My wife and I stayed at the hotel for two nights to attend a function, the hotel was very clean, but the area did not make us feel safe. The road was blocked with Taxis, we could not get into the Hotel parking area, and at night the area turned into an alcohol for all party.

Room Tip: If you are going to sleep and stay in the night , then it is fine , but else , nope!

This hotel is a pretty standard western hotel but offers everything you would expect it to. The room was clean, the bathroom was a good size with a great shower and the bed was comfy. The location is very good, plenty eating/shopping/drinking opportunities within a couple of blocks.

A quite new hotel in the student area of Pretoria - Hatfield. Lots of bars, restaurants and shops in close walking distance. The best place to eat is surely Papas, 3 blocks away to the right. Also one finds antique shops etc around that restaurant.
The hotel welcomes friendly, even if my reservation was made wrongly for the next day, but a room was fixed in the middle of the night. Good breakfast, free internet (even if one day the system was down and I had to insist them to restart it...). The rooms are large enough for spending couple of days there. It could be good to add on some more news channels to the TV - watchig Sky News only gives one a limited understanding of the world..

Spent a week there for a conference. Hotel is in unpleasant location in Hatfield - heart of student land and downtown Pretoria is run down anyway.
Parking is in a weird 3rd floor lot accessed by a narrow ramp only wide enough for one vehicle - had to reverse down it and around corners several times to after meeting another car halfway up. Not fun :(
The managers try to be very helpful and solve problems but the dining room staff are horribly grumpy and sullen (interestingly this only affects the female staff - the older males are professional).

If you travel in Zimbabwe and Malawi and are used to charming, helpful service and African warmth - this IS NOT the place you will find it.

We looked at several hotels the best was the Arcadia Courtyard, but it was in an isolated calm area, and decided to stay where there are stores and restaurants walking distance in a safe area. The hotel was very noise Saturday night since there were rock bands in the square. They stopped at 11:30 PM so it was not too bad. We got a deluxe room which was still on the small side, but comfortable enough. Free internet and parking. Plenty of amenities and a very clean room and white bright clean thick towels. The shower has no pressure and you spend more water trying to get the soap off which defeats the purpose to save water. We went to Cullinan Village a nice little village perfect for breakfast with little shops and restaurants. We then went to visit Sammy Marks museum which is a house of the late 1800’s and learned about an extraordinary pioneer and entrepreneur. From there we went to have lunch at the Blue Crane on the Austin Roberst bird sanctuary and saw the blue cranes and an assortment of interesting birds while we had a nice buffet. In the afternoon we took a driving tour of a very run down Pretoria downtown. The square and buildings are lovely but there are a lot of homeless and trash around. We did not get out of the car. We also visited the Union buildings. Next day we booked a tour through Footprints of Africa to the Cradle of humanity (the next day the paper said the cradle is in Libia!) and Johannesburg highlights. Instead of a guided tour we got a driver for 900 rand a piece. Very disappointing!

I stayed here during the Danone nations cup football tournament and found the hotel to be spot on. The location meant that within 30feet you could be in the main bar and restraunt area in Hatfield. The staff were great with the owner and manager going out of their way to ensure we were looked after. We wanted to go on safari so he organised it drove us himself and had a beautiful lunch laid on for us when we arrived then brought us to Sun City which was an experience. There was a complimentary bus which brought us where ever we wanted to go and back within a 5 km radius including the main shopping centre. The pool is small though only a splash pool.
Once again top hotel, top location, top owner and top staff.
