    Very Disappointing”

    The reviews and pictures online is very deceiving. Property not well kept. Very noisy - i had a room close to the road - traffic and hooting. Also checked in on a day when a company was celebrating their year end party. Cleanliness with food preparation should be checked. eg. tomato sauce bottles need to be washed and the lid too. Breakfast area needs to be cleaned. Plates greasy and sticky underneath.

    Great experience!”

    Outstanding and caring staff, a staff member went out late in the evening to a distant pharmacy to get medicine for our child. Great (and customized) dinner and breakfast as well. Everyone in the family was pleased with our vast room and our stay! Convenient to so many facets of Johannesburg.

    COMFORT, ATTENTIVENESS, ACTIVITIES

    Absolutely superb! check-in which is always a nightmare for me, was the fastest ever! Staff are extremely attentive and pleasant, right from the manager to the barman to the maintenance staff. This is the first "all-in-one" hotel I've come across; once there, everythng is one the premises there is no need to ever leave; and I certainly did not want to

    Lovely Villa with Lovely Staff ”

    Quiet Surrounding / Beautiful Villa / Lovely Staff

    We stayed in Room Geisha for 2 nights. Room aint that big but comfortable. Internet aint that fast but usable. We got company on 2nd night when 1 spider came into our room. We aint sure which type of spider was it and ask the staff to help us up. The staff is kind enough to help us kill that poor thing :( Breakfast was great. Villa is well decorate and beautiful. And the location is pretty safe :)

    Luxury home converted to a boutique hotel”

    furnishings, style, location

    We booked three days at the Villa Simone, the most unusual place I have ever stayed in. Nine months ago it was someone's home, a grand mini-palace behind walled gates in the Beverly Hills of Johannesburg.The Greek owner, who we spoke to, designed the home for his wife Simone, who had recently passed away. He and his family decided to convert the place into a boutique hotel. We slept in the Maharaja room, Indian-inspired, choosing that one over the New Orleans suite, up a second set of stairs. Exploring the dozens of rooms and areas was fun, especially because all of the decorations and artifacts were still in place. They serve a great breakfast and dinner can be arranged with the talented chef. Wi-fi is available as is transportation with Ted, a friendly, talkative fellow who will take you anywhere you want to go in Johannesburg...for a fee, of course. My suggestion would be to use the Hop-on, Hop off service. Have Ted take you to the Park Train/Bus station for the start of the big red bus tour. Be sure to include the Soweto option, a positive, eye-opening experience to be sure.

    To say that this hotel is over the top is an understatement. Every possible space is filled with something, usually gold. Good grounds and security.

    The service is personal. The rooms and decor, enthralling, great location.

    the villa simonne had changed my whole outlook on johannesburg and hotels. this is where i will definitely be staying for any and all visits to this city. there is a level or personalized care and service that i have only ever found in my own home. the gardens and rooms are beautiful to the point of being literally jaw-dropping. i did not want to leave the sanctuary of the hotel at all. i recommend this place to anybody looking for that extra mile.

    Great variety of rooms at a good price”

    No two rooms are alike. Each room is designed based on a different part/culture of the world.

    This is a large family home that was converted into a boutique hotel. We were greeted by two beautiful and loving dogs when we got out of the car. We stayed for two nights just for a weekend of relaxation and was happy to be able to stay in two of their best rooms....Geisha, with a Japanese theme and Olympia with a Greek theme. Geisha has a nice style whereas Olympia was very spacious with a separate lounge area and kitchenette. The staff are very helpful and they make an awesome omelette for breakfast. I would recommend it to anyone looking for space and relaxation in a not so monotonous style of hotel rooms.
