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

We got a nice welcome from Patrick when we arrived at Ginnegaap. The room was ok. Not so big and with a simple bathroom. A small refrigerator was in the room as well. For me the bed was a bit small (1.96m) and it was a bit noisy when breakfast got prepared and visitors came in to eat. We were... More

Having stayed at Ginnegaap last year and thoroughly enjoyed the stay, I was keen to return on my quick trip through Cape Town from Tanzania. Once again, it didn't disappoint and proved to be as wonderful a place as I'd remembered. From the friendly, helpful service to the beautiful rooms and ambience, this place is a 5* luxury guest house... More

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.

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
