                Great Place to Stay”

                My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our two-night stay at the Lucky Bean. Our accommodation was very comfortable and quiet, and we were served a fresh- cooked breakfast each morning. We enjoyed chatting with both Natasha and Conway, the owners, and appreciate their arranging airport transfers for us and Natasha's arranging a half-day tour of Soweto for us on short notice. Their guest house is located in a very nice residential area, but there are many good places to eat and drink just minutes away. There is a nice pool on the property, but unfortunately it was too chilly for us to give it a try. We highly recommend the Lucky Bean if you are looking for a nice and safe place to stay in Johannesburg.

                A total gem”

                We had been recommended by a friend to stay here and was extremely happy about doing so! A lovely place, very homely and welcoming. Within hours of booking we received an email from the owner asking us if we needed any assistance in being picked up from the airport, or transportation / guide in the city, things to do etc... that was the first sign of a great hospitality and it continued to the end. Clean and welcoming. Great home cooked to order breakfast. For those a bit wary of security/safety felt very secure, no issues. They have a driver whom they regularly use for all customers and he was professional, friendly and helpful. We used him a couple of times to get around. They run a restaurant nearby, the menu sounded great, but unfortunately we didnt have long enough time to try it. if we go back to Johburg, we will definitely stay there again. All in all - you cant go wrong.

                Oasi di pace nella grande e caotica Johannesburg”

                La guesthouse è situata in una zona residenziale e tutto sommato tranquilla, camere ampie confortevoli e pulite che danno su un giardino molto curato e piccola piscina. I proprietari Comway e Natascia sono persone amabili e disponibili che ci hanno aiutato per qualsiasi problema ma sopratutto nel suggerirci i ristoranti e i tours da fare. consigliamo a tutti coloro che soggiorneranno nella guesthouse di affidarsi alla loro competenza che sarà molto utile in una città difficile come Johannesburg.
