Nice guest house
Host is helpful and friendly, good hospitality, excellent breakfast
Far from the city centre. You need a cab every time you go out. Host is kind and often gives ride. Airport pick up is not free.

Best place to stay in Johannesburg! Just book it!
Service was top notch, large and clean room, delicious buffet breakfast with everything you can wish for
We are on a around-the-world trip and have travelled already 1 year. This place was the best we had of all our stays. The room was perfect. Cleaned everyday, complementary drinks in the fridge which was restocked daily, all tv channels available. The service was more than you could hope for. They even brought us to 7th street to have dinner and picked us up afterwards every night! The breakfast buffet was very generous and delicious: fresh fruit, variety of breads and cereal, eggs with veggies/cheese/bacon cooked to order. Even real espresso/cappuccino If you like. For my birthday they served me a glass of champaign with my breakfast. What a treat! All in all a more than perfect stay!

It is so underrated
Quality & details
It was quite impressed with the amount of though that has been put in to make the room the most comfortable to stay; ie. The little details like bath salt and candles. The softest bathrobe that I have never seen in any other five stars hotel. Furthermore,the owner was very kind and offered to drop off and pick up from the local restaurant area in the evening.
