Protea Hotel Fire & Ice Johannesburg Melrose Arch3 stars

Why this hotel? Great Location. Hollywood Theme.

Situated in Johannesburg’s entertainment district and close to the gay nightlife in Illovo, this hotel is a good option. Just around the corner you’ll find many trendy shops and restaurants.

The hotel has an old Hollywood theme – you’ll inevitably find pictures of Audrey Hepburn on the walls.

Only a shower curtain separates the bed from the bathroom. This kind of layout is becoming more common in hotels, and it can be a bit weird at first. Don’t let that put you off though – at least the exhibitionists will love it!

Each room at Protea Hotel Fire & Ice Johannesburg Melrose Arch includes tea and coffee making facilities and cable/satellite channels.

features: cafe, restaurant, shop, internet access, pool, gym.
