Work trip
Comfortable but very loud music from surrounding bars/clubs.

4/10 Fair

Noise! Noise! Noise! There are a number of night clubs across the road from the hotel and the music was so loud I had to call reception at 1am and ask to be moved (which they did). The next morning I awoke to the banging of the construction activities happening on the other side of the property! I will not be staying at the Protea again in a hurry (if I do I would definitely find a room as far from the Kololo road as possible), I think Protea are going to struggle to fix this.

Nice hotel, central location
Hotel is in a good central position, food is excellent and staff are very helpful and welcoming, particularly Noah. However, lots of building going on in the area at the moment and so can be noisy during the day. At night, lots of loud music in the surrounding area, on Thursday and Friday night this went on into the early hours - is possible to drown it out a bit with the air conditioning but not great if you are a light sleeper
