Thank you so much for your hospitality! It was our first stop in South Africa and an excellent way to start our trip. The day tours were a perfect way to see the caves one day and a city tour the next. Highly recommend the city tour. In a day's time, we got an excellent history lesson, experienced the culture...

Our room was clean and had everything we needed. Although note that if you stay on the street side room then it gets a bit noisy in the mornings. The breakfast was great - with a variety of cold food and also a menu to choose from for the hot breakfast. What we enjoyed the most was the location of... More

Perhaps a lady with a baby on her back is not the ideal person to welcome guests. It's not very professional, unless that is what you want to portray. The breakfast staff were excellent, however, and the breakfast was delicious.

My husband and I stayed at Ginnegaap Guesthouse for 1 night. We arrived relatively late in the evening and were still warmly greeted by the staff. Breakfast here is delicious with hot food that can be order and fantastic coffee. The room was a great size with plenty of room for the both of us.

Great location, clean, value for money. We didn't have breakfast but was a great experience overall. If we had more time, it would have been a great place to go out at night. Lots of good restaurants in the area!

Ginnegaap is our go-to guesthouse when staying in JHB to attend concerts as it is so close to FNB stadium. The rooms are huge, modern and beautifully decorated with each one having a different theme and offer privacy and tranquility in a bustling area. Breakfasts are delicious and healthy!

A comfortable stay with a great breakfast and good information from the owners and staff about what to do and how to get around. On their suggestion, we wandered down acouple of blocks to a street of bars, cafes, funky shops and restaurants every night we were there. Really enjoyed our stay.

It was the second time my husband and I have stayed at Ginnegaap, and it will definitely be preferred guesthouse in Johannesburg the next time we are in town. Friendly staff, comfortable rooms and a delicious breakfast!
