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.
