I had an amazing one night stay at the Bohemian Guest house. The property is beautiful, and the rooms were large and well designed with a private patio overlooking the gardens. This place has a Mediterranean feel and amazing hospitality. I would highly recommend the Bohemian Guest House for anyone staying in Pretoria!

This is not your ordinary B&B! This beautiful villa will please in every possible way. I arrived late on a very chilly evening, and was greeted and heartily welcomed by both the owners. Whilst a porter offered to carry my bags to my lovely room, the owners, who also run an intimate restaurant on the premises, brought up the most... More

Situated in the area of many embassies it is a very safe and comfortable area. Nearby is an area with some stores and restaurants where you can even walk to. The house itself is a treasure. Great architecture and excellent interior. The hosts and AS well the servants are very friendly and totally helpful.

Great restaurant! Ask for Ryan - he is an excellent server and very personable. Order the pierogis and chicken paprikash for an amazing meal although you can't go wrong with whatever you order. The old fashioned cocktail is delicious too! Enjoy!

Kind owners, high standards throughout, beautiful view and setting. Easy access throughout Pretoria. Would recommend to others. Tasteful decor too. Large breakfast. Security seemed very good too; next to two ambassadorial residences.

A serene, amazingly beautiful and secure place. I needed rest and I got it! From the beautiful rooms with that extra touch of petals, to the well kempt gardens which give a zen feeling. I also had the pleasure of meeting the owners who are so attentive to detail. Thank you Alta! I call that great customer service! The workers... More

We visited the weekend of 1-3 May on our first visit to Pretoria. We are from Scotland and were visiting to see the Bulls v Lions Super XV Rugby match. It was a lovely place in the beautiful Waterkloof area which was a leafy suburb of Pretoria. Whilst it is described a B&B it is like a small country hotel... More

One of the most beautiful places with a classical bohemian touche. Lovely host who took care of the wishes of all guests (including special breakfast requests....). Great rooms with private balcony or terasses. Would always come back for Business or private trips.
