I loved this place, a great island of calm in crazy Jo'burg! Great service, great breakfast and wonderful place all around. A very short walk to some great restaurants and shops. I will recommend this place to anyone traveling to south Africa!

Perfect location in the garden suburb of Melville, within easy reach of the centre of Johannesburg, close to local restaurants, bars and shops. Friendly, helpful staff, comfy bed, fabulous breakfast and shaded gardens for relaxing. What more could you want.

Ginnegaap is a haven in the fun suburb of Melville. It's on a quiet street, close to the main strip. We stayed for two nights and loved the spacious room, comfortable bed, great smelling toiletries and fabulous breakfasts. Highly recommended.

We were very happy with our 4 night stay at Ginnegaap. We had a warm welcome and everyone was friendly, helpful and efficient. Breakfast was excellent with good choices served in the charming dining room. We stayed in Room 10 and enjoyed the benefit of our own sitting out area.
