Safe and convenient

Posted May 20, 2017
Lovely guest house situated in a safe suburb in Johannesburg. Rooms are tastefully decorated and breakfasts are an added bonus. Good bars and restaurants are within close walking distance.

Home away from home

Posted Oct 17, 2016 on Hotels
We had an excellent stay at the 7th Street Guesthouse. Its a cozy, comfy, clean and beautiful place! Add the warm hospitality by Liz and her staff to it which was like a cherry on top and made us feel right at home. The guesthouse is located in a safe and nice neighborhood. Also just a street away, there are lots of nice restaurants to choose from. I traveled to SA with kids so I was a bit nervous about staying at a guesthouse for the first time but we absolutely loved it. So its a very family oriented place. We stayed 3 nights there and will highly recommend it to all.

Friendly guesthouse stay in safe area

Posted Sep 8, 2016 on Hotels
My wife and I stayed at the 7th Street Guesthouse for 2 nights. We felt very welcomed by Eunika who promptly showed us to our room and explained everything including how to get around the neighborhood (the guesthouse is located on a cul de sac just below the main drag of Melville's 7th Street...you need a key to access a private passage that leads up to the main drag where all the restaurants/shops are located). It really feels like you are staying in a home. Room was clean and comfortable...hot water kettle with tea/coffee were provided. Our stay was during winter so the heating panel on the wall worked great to keep us warm. Eunika was able to arrange a transfer to/from the guesthouse for R400 each way which gave us piece of mind with transportation. Would recommended for someone looking for a safe and comfortable guesthouse with friendly staff. Included breakfast was tasty and greatly appreciated.

Not the best stay

Posted Sep 5, 2016 on Hotels
The room was not air conditioned. I froze in the Joburg cold. No phone line in the room; tough looking for people when you need something.

Gem in Melville

Posted Sep 3, 2016 on Hotels
Only stayed one night to catch a flight the next day. Was perfect for that purpose. Apart from the cosy, safe guesthouse there was a private, safe, locked shortcut to the restaurant/bar area of 7th street Melville. It meant you could actually safely walk and didn't have to take a taxi as in so many other Jo'burg locations. Use of terrace, garden. Very nice.

Great Place Close to Restaurants

Posted Aug 14, 2016
My girlfriend and I stayed at the guesthouse for two days and it was excellent. If I came back to Jo'burg I wouldn't even bother looking for another place I would just come back here. Our room was spacious, clean, secure and pleasant. The grounds were nice and there was a patio where meals were served or you could make yourself a coffee or tea. The staff was helpful and friendly and the owner was thoughtful and also had some great stories to share about her experiences living in the city. Laundry was included in the room rate so we emptied out all of our dusty safari clothes and handed them over to the staff. But the best part is the proximity to the 7th street restaurants. There is a private, locked and fenced in stairway that takes you from the guesthouse up to the restaurant area. The options are plentiful and delicious.

A gem in JoBurg

Posted Jul 9, 2016 on Hotels
This hotel is a gem. The owner and staff are so nice and helpful, it gives you faith in human nature. I can't say enough good about this place and the people. Airport transfers, tour information and assistance, laundry service, fantastic breakfast, nice location right in Melville. The owner went out of her way to make me breakfast when I left early on my last day, and all requests during my stay were accommodated. Wonderful guesthouse, amazingly friendly and helpful owner and staff. Jeffrey and Precious were wonderful and knowledgeable drivers who made the tours and transport very enjoyable. Stay her when you are in JoBurg.

Lovely gem of a place

Posted Oct 22, 2015 on Hotels
Spent a great week here, just down the hill from lively Melville, but with a peaceful, secluded feeling. Lovely, hospitable people, a great place to stay in Joburg :)
