Flossie's Bed and Breakfast has become my home away from home. Flossie herself is a beautiful, welcoming, passionate hostess. My first time here a few years ago, I was nervous to stay in Soweto. My fears vanished immediately. This place is very safe, and the neighborhood loves Flossie and her guests. Her rooms, bathrooms, and community room are beautiful, recently... More

Florence, 62 years old, manage this b & b with passion and professionalism. The structure has ten rooms comfortable, clean. great breakfast, excellent wifi, safe area, easy to get (there is also a box for the rental car). The friendliness and kindness of the owner will help to appreciate the vitality of Soweto. Great Flossie!

We booked two rooms at Flossie's for our last night in South Africa. We had only one night to spend in the Joburg area and decided it would be more interesting to see what was going on in Soweto than to stay in a European-style suburban place. Flossie's turned out to be a great experience. Because we were exhausted, we... More

After flying into Jo'burg we drove directly to Flossie's Band B for the first 3 nights of our 3 week holiday. We could not have chosen better! From the moment we arrived which was much earlier than normal check in, we were greeted with open arms by Florence and her staff and instantly made to feel at home. Yes the... More

We decided to visit Johannesburg for New Year's Eve and I was keen to stay in Soweto rather than Joburg 'proper'. We booked into Flossie's B&B and to be honest, I didn't know what to expect. Within moments of arriving, I knew we'd made the right decision. Flossie, or Mama Flo, as I quickly learned to call her, was so... More

I read previous reviews about Flossie's B&B, all of which had nothing but praise, so I didn't hesitate to book for 4 nights. In all the years I've been travelling, Flossie's is up there as one of the best experiences I've had. She welcomes you with a big hug and a warm heart. Nothing is too much trouble. The B&B... More

I highly recommend staying at Flossie's B&B when visiting Soweto. She is the most welcoming and warm-hearted person. She treated both my friend and I as if we were her own daughters. She is the epitome of what it means to be a Sowetan and I have never felt more humbled to be in her presence. I will most definitely... More

This was my second time staying at Flossie's B&B. I couldn't wait to come back this year and bring some friends because last year, Flossie made me feel as if this was my home away from home. She welcomed me with such a big hug, I knew I'd "returned home." This is a beautifully clean and cozy B&B with sumptuous... More

If I'm honest I was petrified to stay in Soweto (it was my husbands idea), on arrival at Flossie's I couldn't have wished for a more warming welcome, including a big hug from Flossie. She drove us to a local Shebeen (local pub) for dinner and even drove back to collect us. The next day we did a bike tour... More

Flossie's BnB is in de heart of Soweto. A place I would normally not identify as the first destination of choice, but the history and we fantastic welcoming by Flossie was impressive, just like the visit to the Freedom monument guided by Flossie. It was a highlight on our holiday.
