We stayed here last year (yes my review is VERY late) after having to postpone our flight to Zambia due to document issues. But this place actually made our delay worthwhile! The service was amazing, the food was fantastic, and the place is simplistic, beautiful, welcoming, warm, calming, interesting and informative. We were told yoga retreats happen here which I'm...

Many people never think to find a museum and tribute to Mahatma Ghandi in the middle of Johannesburg, but the owners have restored Ghandi's former home in a way that maintains the essence of who he was as a human being and political thought leader. This is a truly a special place to think and reflect. Enjoy a lovely vegetarian... More

I visited the Satyagraha house recently. It is a very calm and serene place. I had the pleasure of meeting with the owner who is passionate about keeping it as a true memorial to Mahatma Gandhi. If you are looking for alcohol and meat, this is not a place for you. If you want to feel the presence of Mahatma... More

In honor of MK Gandhi I must say that this has to be a great experience. The peaceful serene area is amazing to sit and read a book. They do also have accommodation available for people wanting to rest and relax.

A serene Sunday meander around the historical Satyagraha House absorbing history! Calm pervades the buildings and transports one back in time to when days seemed long and peaceful. Take a wander around the simplistic almost spartan rooms and read up on the olden days when Gandhi lived there with his friend. You will be amazed at how open the area... More

It is an amazing address, many repeaters. Only 7 peaceful rooms , rich breakfast and possibilities to do yoga, meditation or massage. Gandhi stayed here and his energy is still there.

This place is truly unique and a must for all those interested in the history of Mahatma Gandhi. Designed and built by his close friend Herman Kallenbach, Satyagraha House is a house where the two lived, among others of their inner circle, from 1908 to 1909 when it was surrounded by fields and orchards. Now right in the middle of... More

Went to visit on a whim as I work nearby and was blown away by the total peace, calm and beauty of this special place. The minute you walk through the glass doors you can feel this peace, it is unbelievable. The home and garden are beautifully kept, the flowers overflowing with love reminding me of a fairy garden, so... More

We enjoyed a lovely tour, learned a lot about Gandhi's biography and philosophy and had a wonderful (yet surprising, there's no menu, you just get a two course meal and freshly pressed juice brought to your table) lunch in the tranquil gardens. The guest rooms are beautiful and I will certainly recommend them to anyone passing through Johannesburg.
