Cozy stay

nice decoration, nice garden, friendly staff
It's a relaxing place with super friendly staffs. The room is decorated nicely with your name on a small board. Very sweet. I also went to their massage service. Very interesting. It's close to the city center by taxi. If you're looking for a short relaxing stay, I highly recoomend this place.

Quaint little hotel.

Central location
Sadly my stay was a sad one and very short, but the hotel has a lovely and calming feel to it. Wouldn't mind spending a weekend relaxing there.

Serene retreat for the weary business traveller

Park-like setting, fantastic food, and massages on-site!
After a week of business meetings in SA, I booked my last night/day in Joberg before heading back to the U.S. After checking out the typical hotels online, I was lucky to happen upon the Hands On Healing Retreat Center. It's like a park within a quiet suburb (30 min from airport). Karen's kind attention maked it effortless to relax. It's a really lovely place - most of the locals come for brunch or massage & may not realize that there are also rooms to book! The center provided me with a much-needed day to unwind before heading home.

Garden of Eden in middle of Johannesburg

Central Location, dedicated owner, big garden, relaxing athmosphere, personal service, save
Stayed for two days and enjoyed the openness of the place. you can walk in the garden, find tranquillity, enjoy a cup of tea and listening to ducks and birds. Rooms are spacious and decorated with style to make you feel home in Africa. I had the room with a jacuzzi bath and enjoyed it a lot!
