A beautiful haven in J'burgh... Dawie and his wife are excellent hosts and treat you like life-long friends. The rooms are perfect and Dawie is extremely helpful and will provide any service, including transport to attractions and to and from the airport/bus station. Nothing is too much trouble. Totally recommended!!!

We only decided to stay at Akuwaiseni becuase it was the only accomodation we could find in Joburg during the World Cup. The room was disgustingly dirty despite being 'cleaned' every day, freezing cold with only a plug in electric heater meaning that we slept virtually fully clothed, there was no hot water at all, and none of the room...

So we went to the Gauteng Tourist Infodesk and they helped us finding accommodation for one night. So, we ended up at Akuwaiseni Guest House with... More
