6/10 Good

Rather dissapointed
The room was clean however the safe did not work. I did not feel as there was no visible security on site on the night that I stayed there. The rooms are not sound proof. If you like the sound of passing traffic and the sounds of people fornicatting. I would suggest you pass then. There was no back up electricity as there was load shedding (no electricity) at the time. The breakfast selection was bland and the selection was minimal.

Nice, stylish, quiet B&B
The hotel is a nice, stylish bed and breakfast located in a quiet residential area of Johannesburg. The name is really a misnomer. The staff was friendly and helpful, and even made me boiled eggs the evening before when I had to leave early for a safari. It’s a little out of the way though and you have to take Uber to get anywhere, but it’s definitely worth the price!
