Happy couple
My stay at Villa simone was awesome , from check in till check out , friendly staff , rooms we exactly like how they looked in the pictures , my main worry was food because we strictly halaal but they cater for that to , it's outsourced by a restaurant called europa so they have menus at reception which you can order from and they deliver soo I never had a problem .

Great boutique hotel
The boutique hotel is very nice. The rooms are theme based and very retro. The grounds are beautiful and the staff is excellent. We did not have hot water one night which was a slight inconvenience. The hotel brought a bottle of wine to the room which was very nice. I would stay here again if I ever returned to Joburg—which I will not as I didn’t care for the city as a whole.
