If you're considering staying in Soweto while in Johannesburg, this B&B is an adequate option. It is well located, just a few minutes walk from Vilakazi Street, the main area of historical interest in Soweto. Vilakazi St has a smattering of restaurants and there are a few shebeens on the sidestreets. The area is busy with trinket sellers and tourists... More
