Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood in Sandton, this B&B offers everything you'd expect. The room was nicely decorated with modern South African decor. The bathroom is spacious, modern and well lit. The breakfast is standard B&B fare, but of great quality.
Dina is an excellent host. She is present, helpful and caring, yet never intrusive.
My only complaint (and I use that term loosely) is the lack of AC. Most months, the climate in Johannesburg is pleasant and dry, however it can be hot in the summer months. Given the lay out of the facility there was no cross breeze and the room can be stuffy. If not AC, a fan would be a great addition to the room.
Overall, I recommend Sandton Slippers without reservation. Its location, accomodation and overall ambiance is great. I plan to stay there every time I travel to Jo'burg.
