Having just emerged from a 10 hour overnight flight it was refreshing to receive a warm welcome from the staff at Pension Idube. We had good communication with them ahead of our arrival where they said we could drop it bags off early. However this was not needed as our room ready two hours early. Four of us shared one...

Less than an hours walk to nearby shopping mall and restaurants, its safe and well equipped for one on one attention for all your requirements. The staff from administration to house keeping are very hospitable. Early morning your breakfast is ready... More

I recently took a group of students from the US on a month-long study tour of South Africa. We spent a glorious week in Johannesburg with the folks at Pension Idube! The rooms were great, the staff was wonderful, and the hot cooked breakfast every morning was the bee's knees! The location is truly perfect, about a two block walk... More

As a group of moms and daughters we all felt very safe and were well looked after. Nothing was to much from organizing shuttle buses to get us around to moving beds so girls could sleep together. Rooms were clean.

I visited South Africa with a group of 15 students and stayed at Pension Idube in Melville. The rooms were clean and nice, the staff was pleasant and accommodating and the daily breakfast (fresh fruit, cereal, toast, yogurt, eggs, etc.) was also very good. The manager Gehard Rothmann was very helpful and showed true hospitality. Most importantly, all of the... More

We (family of four) stayed here for a weekend and were greeted with smiles and assistance. Good rates with a tasty breakfast. Located in a good, safe area. The only downside is the lack fo A/C in the room. We had one small fan.

Hello Gareth Thanks so much for the wonderful review!! I'm so glad you enjoyed the stay with us in our bohemian little suburb. It truly is a great place to visit with all of the little shops, cafes and other places of interest. Our summers are incredibly hot in Johannesburg, and that is why we put fans into our rooms....
