I stayed here 2 days on business. The hotel is a well established business founded in 1949! Obviously renovated and enlarged since then several times. Checkin was smooth and friendly. Got a room on the fifth floor-there wings in the building, so its kind of tricky to find your room. The room was fine with standard amenities. Cleanlines was perfect, and it was quiet at night so no problems sleeping. Bed was a bit too soft. The hotel asks guests to limit showers to 5 min or less due to water sho... Read more

One can tell a lot about the place, rooms and so on - they're all very nice. Sitting by the pool (there are two open pools) is great too. Delicious breakfast and comfortable beds as well. But what is really amazing about this place is the staff! I am amazed by people working here - they are all professional, client-focused and sooooo nice! I really recommend this place :)

The Balalaika hotel is not a modern one, but rather a historic one from former times. It welcomes with a nice lobby, and the rooms are on a good standard (airco, tv, wifi for free). The nicest thing in Balalaika is the inner area of the hotel which is like a rainforest garden with a nice pool in. You can sit and relax all times. Also, the terrace bar welcomes you for a drink outside. The "Bull Run" restaurant belonging to the hotel is as well one with a high quality in meat and wines. All in... Read more

Stayed here at the start of an organised trip through SA. The rooms were well appointed, very comfortable beds and good breakfast. Had a great steak dinner in the Bull Run and then crashed for 10 hrs after an overnight flight but couldn't fault the staff, the service or the standard of room comfort. Would definitely recommend and use the Protea hotels again.

This Hotel is located walking distance away from Mandela Square with endless possibilities for shopping and dining. The check in process went smoothly. However, the Receptionist forgot to secure payment for any Extras on checking in. This caused a great inconvenience when we charged our lunch at the Bull Run Restaurant to our room. We were called several times by Reception during the time my husband has his nap. This proved very annoying after getting off a 12 hr flight. There is adequat... Read more

As a first time traveler to Africa with my sister, I was very pleased with the service and accomodation provided by Protea Hotel Balalaika Sandton. We were picked up from the airport from a lovely gentlemen who as we drove to the hotel showed us the sights and told us stories of what Johannesburg and Sandton is like and a brief history. Very accomodating with providing to all our needs and wants. The hotel staff were very accomodating with showing us location worth while seeing, like Nelson Mand... Read more

We stayed there for one night before joining a tour. Was extremely impressed with this hotel. Older hotel but well maintained. Room was great and service was top notch. Bull Run was fantastic and prices were extremely cheap by US standards. Would definitely stay there again.
