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.

Visually speaking the rooms are very designed. Of course they are clean and well maintained. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We did have an awesome breakfast. Free wifi provided. We requested for transportation to the station and it was arranged on time at a low cost. Cant ask for more.

Spent a week in one of the larger rooms and enjoyed my stay. Each morning started with a good breakfast. The staff were all very helpful and polite. Look forward to returning some day. The location is withing short walking distance to decent restaurants and shopping.

Nice suburb of Jo'burg with some good bars and restaurants and Ginnegaap is just a short walk away. Great breakfast, nicely presented rooms and very personable service. Will definitely come back and highly recommend!

We absolutely loved our two nights at Ginnegaap! The location in Melville was fantastic - we enjoyed being within walking distance of great restaurants and shops. The guest house itself was lovely and incredibly comfortable and relaxing. Our room was great - thoughtfully appointed and a comfortable bed (finally, a mattress in S.A with medium softness and nice sheets). There... More
