I am a regular guest at Ten Bompas, and as a fussy frequent traveler this place never lets me down. The staff are friendly but not overwhelmingly so. The grounds are tranquil and well kept. The suites, each a different style, are large and full of fantastic touches. A wood burning fireplace - my favourite thing in Joburg wintertime, a... More

As a luxury travel writer for World-Adventurer.com, I've stayed in many boutique hotels all over the world. Ten Bompas was inspiring for their dedication to achieving an elevated guest experience. This is why I loved the stay. All Suites: All the rooms are set up as suites with separate lounge areas from the bedrooms. The rooms are extravagant, custom decorated,... More

It is like a home from home. Peaceful, cozy and relaxing, I just wish it was in a city that I had to visit very frequently! The suite bedrooms are amazing, though mine - number 8 was rather too dark for my liking. Wide balcony surrounded by trees so very pleasant indeed. Lovely light bathroom with steam room in the...

I stayed in Ten Bompas quite a few years ago(the date on this review is the oldest I could select) but it was pre my review writing days. If it's anything like it was when we stayed there it's fabulous. Great rooms/suites with a minibar to die for! Really excellent food and great staff.

This small intimate hotel oozes comfort and elegance. Nothing is too much effort for the friendly staff. The rooms are spacious and well appointed oozing charm. The Winehouse restaurant is chique and the food fabulous!

I was only in Johannesburg for a short time and Ten Bompas Hotel was the highlight of my time in the city. Set in a quiet road on a nice residential suburb, the hotel is a delight. I was warmly greeted & shown to a suite with a living room, bedroom, and nice big bathroom. I was served a little... More

I've mostly thought of Jo'burg as a transfer point to other parts of Africa. A place to spend the night before moving on. And, after 24 hrs of travel, the overwhelming desire was to rid yourself of the airplane-infused clothes, get a steaming hot shower, devour some comfort food, cocoon yourself in a warm place, and lay your head on...
