“I couldn't fault it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013 via mobile

And I'm not usually a 100% giver... But I really could not fault the place. Stayed in a great suite. Clean and well kept. The location is spot on... Close enough to walk if you want, but far enough to be quiet. Bargain at the price, plus free Wifi. I'd stay again.

Ooh what a wonderful two night stay, all the way from durban to pretoria. The apartments are gorgeous, and I will be recommending it to my friends and collegues. Coming back soon. The rooms are spacious, they are well kept, and in perfect condition. It is close to the amneties, what more could you ask for!

Beautifull location, the streets in the neirborhood are planted with Jacaranda trees gorgeous in the spring when we stayed there with my wife and daughter. Self-catering is great choice as there is a small shopping area at walking distance where you have breakfast and lunch and buy food.
The rooms, bathroom and kitchen are spacious, in perfect condition, well decorated and fully equipped. Perhaps a bit too protected from the sun, especially at that time of the year, where temperature is still in the 20s. Coming from north hemistphere winter and wanting to enjoy the sun.
Owner Marie and staff and friendly and very helpfull.

Equipment available to cook inside the apartment, which is very convenient.

Absolute Farenden is a great place to stay - modern, clean and well-designed. A group of us stayed here for 4 weeks in October 2012 and loved the experience. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and Marie and her husband Koos are wonderful people. Recommend Absolute Farenden highly.

I've been staying at Absolute Farenden off and on for the last year or so, whenever I'm passing through Pretoria for business. The place is amazing! Incredibly comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchens, and excellent workspace with wireless internet. The rooms are immaculately clean and the staff work hard to keep them that way. The location is ideal as well: near Loftus stadium, the Pretoria CBD, central Harfield, and very near to the U.S. and other embasies. Absolute Farenden is a great value for both short and extended stays in the Pretoria area.

I am staying at the Absolute Farenden apartments and will be here for another 3.5 weeks. It is a wonderful place with all the amenities one needs for a long stay. The staff are very friendly and Marie who manages the apartments is absolutely fantastic! They even provided us transportation to our workplace and to local restaurants when we needed them.
Highly recommend this place for short or long visits in the Arcadia area in Pretoria.

Room Tip: Pick their 2 story rooms for more space.
