The guesthouse is situated in Melville, north of the centre of Joburg. The area is quiet and safe. The hotel has good security measures just in case including a secure car park. We were greeted by friendly staff who showed us to our rooms. The rooms were very comfortable and had all the facilities including tea making and a microwave.... More

This place suited our needs perfectly. It has secure parking and a lovely garden area. The room was spacious with a nice outlook and had a good enough kitchen and living area. The owner was very friendly and all staff were accommodating and responded to all inquiries and requests promptly and with a smile. Melville is a trendy area and... More

The Ginnegaap is an excellent choice to stay in the vibrant city of Johannesburg. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is superb with lots of choices. The guesthouse itself has got a warm charisma!

Overall, a very nice guest house. The room and bed were comfortable and clean. Pierre and Corlien were friendly and always available to help arrange transportation. Breakfasts were tasty and I appreciated the fact that there was a range of options available at breakfast. Would recommend staying there again.

Had a very pleasant stay at the guesthouse. The manager arranges daily tours and airport pickups (however at a little bit of a premium), but its convenient. We only used the pickup and did the rest ourselves. The breakfast was excellent, lots of variety and the hot breakfast options were amazing. Rooms are clean.

We appreciate all the great things you mentioned about staying at Ginnegaap! Re tours and transport, we only use reliable and safe taxis to drive our guests around Johannesburg. The tour guides/companies that we make use of, are professional and knowledgeable to ensure that guests will leave Johannesburg with great memories. They all charge average rates. For guests on tighter... More

Ginnegaap is very good value for money. We had a very pleasant 3-day stay starting with our pick-up from (and subsequent return to) the airport and continuing with a warm welcome from owners and staff. Breakfast happens in a bright, sunny little dining room and offers a good variety of dishes (I recommend the Egg Special). Ginnegaap is in Melville... More

The place is absolutely stunning and the service is magnificent. The breakfast exceeded our expectations! Only thing is that our room did not have a shower, only a bath, which is nice when you have the time, but showers are just most practical when your time is limited... I would suggest just adding a shower extension to the room. Other... More

After travelling nearly 48 hours from USA through Germany to RSA, Ginnegaap Guesthouse was a warm welcome. First of all, the house's driver, Jaco, pick us both up at the terminal and drove us to the house for about $37 USD (after Rand conversion). His welcoming pick up and information about Jo-Burg was just what we needed when exhausted and... More
