I've stayed at JeanJean several times. I think its pretty nice - rooms are big and nicely decorated. All the rooms have fridges and a hairdryer. Some have microwaves. I enjoyed the breakfast. The service was great. There is lots of space to work and meet with colleagues. My only complaint was that there seemed to be an issue with... More

This Guesthouse is marketed as 5 star accommodation. It is far from it. While the place is very nice, the service is poor, and not what one would expect from 5 star accommodation. I will not recommend this guesthouse to anyone.

On the positive side: - Room was very nicely decorated and big - Bed was very comfortable - Staff were friendly and helpful - Area is nice and the guesthouse is well located On... More

The room was spacious and the complex very well decorated. Maybe too much rules. The staff was helpful and friendly. Unfortunately the service was not up to standard with the doorbell not being answered while standing in the rain, the room not being prepared for 2 people, the bathroom linen completely worn out, a chipped coffee cup and coffee being...

I stayed at JeanJean for 6 weeks, and had a very happy experience. Food lovely, people lovely, rooms lovely. Anton was very helpful and drove us around to show the city, Shane was always around to sort things out for us, and everyone else equally as amazing! P.s. the corridors are excellent for playing cricket in.

My wife and I were really happy with our stay at the JeanJean Guesthouse. Our suite was really well-appointed, with heaps of space, and a sunny balcony. The house-keeping was immaculate, and the breakfasts were also extremely good -- plenty of food and coffee, and they cooked especially for my vegan diet. Also, they drove us around to restaurants, shops... More
