    Gladys and David were wonderful hosts! Breakfast was delicious! Bed was very comfortable!”

    Very quiet and charming place! Hosts are very attentive to details, very pleasant and have good recommendations. The restaurants they recommended were great! David even drove us both ways each night. When we left at 4 am for our flight, they had breakfast boxes waiting for us to take! Would definitely stay there again.

    We stayed for a night before heading off to the National Park. The guest house was fabulous! Our room was large and well-appointed, and even had a fridge full of water, Coke, and milk for coffee/tea. We were tired after a long trip to Johannesburg and they provided us transportation to dinner and recommended a great restaurant. The breakfast was large and delicious!! Overall I would definitely recommend this guest house to anyone staying in the city.

    A real home from home”

    I loved my stay at the Arum Place Guest House. I couldn't have asked for better! So much attention has been paid to detail with regards to cleanliness and the things that they include in the room for free. The owners give the impression that nothing is too much bother. The breakfast spread is also amazing. It would be a pleasure to stay here again if I am ever back in Johannesburg.

    Quick stay”

    We had to attend a birthday party that was actually meant to be on the Saturday and was then moved at last minute to the Sunday. Luckily the owners could accommodate us, although in a different room. The room that we ended up staying in was a bit small but the bathroom was lovely with a bath and shower. It was also close to the kitchen and therefor a bit noisy early morning with breakfast preparations. Breakfast was great.

    We stayed in two separate rooms and found huge bedrooms with superiorly comfortable beds (including heating), 2-3 chairs, desk, sofa and cable TV. The first bathroom was nice but cold due to single pane windows that were not perfectly sealed but the second bathroom was perfectly ok. The hosts are not intrusive but available when necessary, providing very convenient transportation to and from the restaurants area about 1 km away. Breakfast is copious and matched to clients'expectations. The street environment is safe and very quiet, with parking freely available on site.

    Little gem ”

    Lovely guest house, pot room was tastefully done, spacious and clean. The owner picked us up from the airport and through out was very nice, even dropped us off in the town so we could have dinner and collected us when we finished- great service. The breakfast was 5 star, cooked to order and better than the hotels I have stayed in. Great place to stay in Joberg. Highly recommend this place.

    Cozy & lovely room”

    Arum is a nice homey place far from home. David & Gladys are good accommodating hosts whose taste & attention to details I admire in designing each room they rent out. I particularly like mine (I was given 3 options to choose from upon arrival <3). Breakfast is generous & good, and chats amongst guests during it are easy as one feels as if in their own/family's home. Melville, as is the wider Joburg, isn't a particularly walkable area for a foreigner, woman, solo traveler like me, except from morning to early afternoon. Arum is located in a quiet residential area, but it also means that the array of restaurants & shops is about 5-min drive (a 15-min walk should be fine during daytime). I have found Uber to be extremely helpful to get around, as is having local friends with whom one can enjoy evening time out & about feeling safe.

    Great little guest house with a friendly couple running it. Breakfast is great. The rooms are spacious, clean, and have everything from a complimentary minifridge to a full kitchen if you want to make your own meals. The owners were happy to give me a lift to different areas around the guesthouse and were happy to help organize tours. Would definitely come back here.
