We had a great stay at Ginnegap Guesthouse - the guesthouse is charming and located in a nice neighborhood in Johannesburg. The staff was very kind and helpful, the room we had was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was very good. We would definitely recommend it!

The hotel is in a good location - walking distance to the popular restaurants on 7th street. I don't think its advised to walk at night, however. Patrick welcomed us when we arrived at Ginnegaap and was very nice. The room was ok. Not so big and with a simple bathroom. Warm and cozy decor. Comfortable bed. We found many... More

Forget the small rooms and upgrade yourself to the apartment. Separate bedroom, bathroom and kitchen/living room in approximately 500 Sq. Ft. space. Bath needs a shower curtain... Ginnegaap is located three blocks west of 7th St where all the action is. Walking is safe.

Ginnegaap Guesthouse is more that a B&B. It really makes you feel like you have your own home in Jo-burg. Corlien, the manager, is completely on top of things and response immediately to emails and is very flexible with bookings. Email her directly and she's able to work miracles. And the staff couldn't be better. They are warm and welcoming... More

like stepping into the mid 20th century. Apartment like rooms with kitchen dining table. Very affordable. Nice helpful staff. Walking distance to restaurants in one direction and shops in another. Quiet streets. Owners arranged for taxis to pick us up. Main disadvantage is that it is not centrally located.

The hotel/ b&b is organised, not too big, nicely furnished and serves a great breakfast too. The staff and owners of Ginnegaap are welcoming, sincerely and obviously there's a great atmosphere due too this close and enthusiastic team.

A wonderful, quiet and cosy place in the heart of charming Melville. Beautifully decorated, nice and efficient staff, and many good restaurants within walkable distance of the guesthouse. Baby cot was a plus.

Ginnegaap is located in a highly recommended area which is Melville. Service was top class and we felt courteously attended to in our short stay. Ideal breakfast and nice peaceful setting. I would highly recommended this accomodation to anyone visiting Johannesburg.
