Nice room, nice grounds to sit and relax on the property, good internet, good breakfast, restaurants nearby, nice neighborhood. I was only on a 1 night layover so next time I might chose somewhere closer to the airport.

GinneGaap is charming place with lovely grounds. The rooms were clean and comfortable and breakfast in the garden is a great way to start the day. The staff were warm and friendly and extremely helpful and accommodating. The guesthouse is also just a short walk to several restaurants and shops in Melville. We really enjoyed our stay and would certainly... More

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.

We had a great stay at Ginnegap Guesthouse - the guesthouse is charming and located in a nice neighborhood in Johannesburg. The staff was very kind and helpful, the room we had was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was very good. We would definitely recommend it!

The cook did not cover her head while cooking which resulted in one of the omelette served having hair on it, but otherwise breakfast was okay. we enjoyed eating breakfast in the garden on the our last day,it was refreshing.The service was excellent, Patrick...

The hotel is in a good location - walking distance to the popular restaurants on 7th street. I don't think its advised to walk at night, however. Patrick welcomed us when we arrived at Ginnegaap and was very nice. The room was ok. Not so big and with a simple bathroom. Warm and cozy decor. Comfortable bed. We found many... More

Forget the small rooms and upgrade yourself to the apartment. Separate bedroom, bathroom and kitchen/living room in approximately 500 Sq. Ft. space. Bath needs a shower curtain... Ginnegaap is located three blocks west of 7th St where all the action is. Walking is safe.

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
