Having to go to a restaurant for breakfast. Not enough parking and been interrupted to move cars all the time.
Wifi is excellent
Great location, right on the main street in Melville. We found the neighborhood safe to walk at night. Plenty of bars and restaurants around (don't miss Lucky Bean next door!). Good breakfast served in a cafe on the street corner. Clean room and comfy bed.
WiFi doesn't reach the room. A/C did not work because it was too hot outside (??!). Tight parking. The restaurant for breakfast opens late on Sundays (8AM). We did not find the staff warm and welcoming at all like other reviewers mention, we always seemed to bother them...
Excellent location, staff, cleanliness, private parking with remote control. Breakfast is also tasty. Safe neighborhood.
Thanks to Emily who helped me with directions to my venue - was right to the doorstep! What a helpful lady! I felt very safe and loved that restaurants etc were right next door!!
Ok - Jo'burg is nothing compared to Cape Town so I only spent 1 full day and this was a good guest house in a good location - Melville is safe to walk around at night and the location of the guest house is near to restaurants and dining places ;) found a really great pizza place too. The breakfast served at the nearby restaurant was also great and yummy!
When we checked out early on Sunday, the hotel staff did not tell us that the restaurant only opens at 8am... So not only us, but other people who checked out earlier were stranded outside the restaurant at 730am (which was the normal opening hours as per stated by the hotel.. Thankfully, the owner of the cafe let us in and offered to go coffee and a muffin.. She told us that she has informed Saffron about the opening hours which is 8am for Sunday and public holidays,. But saffron has not updated in their one pager info which is the room.. Also the staff - Emily - was a little pushy for the tours and all... Did not really like it - you can just buy the hop on and off bus ticket.. And also, our driver which Emily arranged for us- never made it to the airport to get us... So please make sure to give Emily you telephone number or get hers, so that u can ring when u land ;)
Location Great breakfast
Skimpy duvet for double bed Noisy environment Not great value for money
They were very accommodating and the room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. They even have bed warmers for chilly nights. I highly recommend this place!
They advertised a shuttle service to the airport. In actuality they use a company and you have to pay a fee of about $35-40 USD
Very accommodating and friendly staff- professionally run, and perfect for a fun week in JHB - very close to the action- it's 2 blocks up the same street- but noise does not spill over into the hotel. Also there are gorgeous palm trees in the mini courtyard. Great plush decor. Safe in the room was great. They lent us a power adapter for a US plug. Wifi was flawless.
Only thing was that space heater didn't get extremely hot- in the winter it was a little chilled in the room until it had a couple of hours to heat up. However they did have amazing comforters so in any case we were very comfortable and warm when sleeping.
Spacious rooms. Good décor.
Home-style Cool decoration hair dryer in room good breakfast place
bath water is not hot enough at night
just a small noise during the night in the ceiling but we notified it to the owner in order he could check
Everything - small covered in above survey
It was very comfortable, big room, good location for dinner, helpful staff for a great value.
Great helpful staff. Location was in a quiet neighborhood and yet had a bunch of nice restaurants. The interiors of the guest house was well decorated and gave us an opportunity to experience the natives' lifestyle.
No reason to complain but then again we only stayed one night.
Good location, but don´t expect a guesthouse, it is more like a place with a nice room. We stayed in other guesthouses in SA and the owner was always avaliable and happy to help, specially with local tips, but in this place we didn´t even get to see the onwer.
The location was excellent close to restaurants & bars. No Fear factor walking the street. The room was comfortable with attractive decor & good facilities. Effecient staff who were helpful especially arranging onward transport to the airport.
Comfortable rooms, very friendly and helpful staff, lovely green surroundings, located in a very neat place with many local amenities.
Nice big room with great shower
Having to be let in and out all the time - no gate remote for parking.
Its a home away from home...
The bedrooms and the location.
During the 2 nights there was an alarm ringing just outside our bedroom for a long time and woke us up. Thy usually send people to have breakfast at a restaurant, but it was close. So the breakfast arrived late and not very fresh.
The room was a nice size and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast at La Creme was really good even though we only had it one morning.
Nothing to complain about.
The security was great. Quiet room. Staff 24H on duty. Breakfast was wonderful.
Shortage of towels. Lack of detail with housekeeping.
Localization: there are several bars and restaurants around the hotel and it seems to be a safe zone; the rooms decoration is nice.
The arrengements pre checkin regarding breakfast were forgotten; the hotel messed up the bookings so instead of 4 people as booked they were expecting 3 people.
Room was large and well designed. Clean and comfortable, located close to restaurants and bars quite surrounding at night. comfortable bed.
