The Protea Hotel by Marriott Johannesburg Balalaika Sandton is across the road from the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. This Johannesburg City hotel is less than 510 meters away from the famous and bustling Nelson Mandela Square in Sandton. The Hotel is in an excellent location that had its origins in 1949 and finished in its current state in 1989.
