This was my first trip to Johannesburg and I had read a great deal about things to be careful of. The level of crime is true but you can protect yourself by doing a few simple things. Stay away from the tourist areas where you will stand out and stay in one of the local guesthouses. This guesthouse was recommended to me by our office. The owners Vanessa and Arneau are really great hosts. THe rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. Breakfasts and meals were very good and they made you feel at home. This guesthouse is located in a good neighbourhood and I felt safe all the time. I stayed for almost two weeks and thoroughly enjoyed the room, meals and general surroundings. THe only dissappointment was that the pool was unuseable. Kind of green and loaded with chlorine so I took a pass. Everything else was very good and I would recommend this place to anyone that wants to stay in Midrand. THe price was attractive 695 rand per night or roughly $80 USD.
