I discovered the Bohemian House several years ago and can't imagine staying anywhere else when my travels bring me back to Pretoria. The Bohemian House is a warm and delightfully charming place to stay whether traveling for business or vacation. The family that runs the guesthouse (including staff) are lovely people and will make you feel right at home...you won't... More

Truly charming, with dog (small) wagging its tail upon arrival. Very convenient location between Pretoria, Waterkloof, Centurion and with direct access to the highway to Jozi and the airport. Nice rooms, very friendly staff and overall a tranquil place for the traveller tired of large hotels. martin

Enjoyed stay very much in clean and comfortable room and all attendants are professional and friendly.Will definitely return in the future as you feel wellcome and nothing is to much for the staff to attend to.Only wish the bed was a king size as io am fairly tall.

I stayed at this guesthouse in June 2014. The hosts were amazing and friendly. Very accommodating. Staff were courteous and well trained. Lovely room with stylish decor. Very secure with an embassy next door. Morning breakfast is superb and made to order. I will stay here again. I loved it.

I have stayed here 3 times in the last 6 months and it is consistently good. The rooms are pleasantly furnished and the breakfast more than sufficient. What sets the establishment apart are the staff. Nothing is too much trouble and any requests are swiftly accommodated. So much so that I will be returning in 2 weeks time. Well done... More

Nice location in Waterkloof, Pretoria's top suburb. Hotel buildings and garden in great clean condition. Comfortable individually decorated rooms. Original art. Nice pool area. They are prepared to make special effort to accommodated requests for meals. Cater for gluten free eater. Dinner and breakfast were great. Close to various shopping malls and Pretoria's best restaurants.
