Highly recommended!
I was so pleased with the hotel, I will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Joburg! The room was large, clean, and had nice amenities and was so relaxing. The TV room, outside living area, and bar made the hotel feel like a second home. On top of everything, the property owner and staff were so kind as they went out of their way to make me feel welcome!

Dear Adrian and team, thank you so much for making me feel like at home during my 10 day business trip to Johannesburg. The guest house was located in a perfect area close to the Rosebank Mall with its many good restaurants, movie theaters and stores. The guest house itself felt like an oasis in the busy city: beautiful and comfortable rooms, a lovely living and outdoor area with pool and a delicious breakfast. And the service was outstanding: Adrian (the manager) was available and present every day, even on Sunday! Lungile cooked a wonderful breakfast every day and Thabang, Jaburani and Matthew took care of the rooms, the maintenance and security every night. Thank you again for making me feel comfortable, safe and welcome in a big, unknown city!
