“A home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

Flossie's B&B in Pimville, in Soweto, was a delightfully comfortable place to stay. We felt as if we were truly at home in Soweto rather than being tourists looking in from the outside. The B&B is very safe and secure, clean, and comfortable. It's close to major attractions, museums, and the Maponya mall. But perhaps the best part of all was the sumptuous breakfasts Flossie provided us. Flossie herself is incredibly welcoming, and we will absolutely return!

Flossie's B&B is situated in Pimville in Soweto. It's about 800m from the Maponya shopping mall.
Florence the owner of the place can be reached through email, her phone nos and she responded to the enquiry I made through her website and phone nos.

Though she wasn't around when we got in, her house help welcomed us in and showed us our room (I stayed with my wife). Florence herself came in later and she welcomed us with hugs. She's warm and caring (even offering my wife a orange drink that same night). She's open to your requests. Her B&B double bed room has a comfortable bed, hot water and a TV (with local channels only). However she has a Satellite TV in the very comfortable living room. Note that the rooms are not very big, just the size of a typical hotel room.
She does take university students in too, but these are few and extremely well-behaved and noiseless during the two nights we stayed.

Concerning the area, it's neat and not really noisy (you occassionaly hear car noises, but not enough to disturb you or your sleep). I'm told by the students that the area is safe provided you enter before 9pm. Flossie's B&B has a big sign that says it's protected by .....
We went to the Maponya mall and we were able to buy gift items at good prices.

As soon as I returned from our holiday in South Africa, I tried to review Flossie's but could not locate her on tripadvisor. We were only able to stay one evening in Soweto with Flossie, but she made us feel soooo very welcome. She was most accomodating. . . drove us in her own vehicle to the local mall so we could get something to eat, and even loaned me her cell phone to call her when we were ready for pick-up. We were able to meet her daughter and grand daughter. Very authentic Soweto. The B and B was clean and modest. . . but could tell Flossie took great pride and thought in putting this business together. We felt very safe. . . . it was a great experience. I might add. . . everyone should expose themselves on occasion to environments where one is a minority. Here in Soweto, we didn't see any other white folk until we were in the heavily tourist areas of Soweto. Do yourself a favor - don't miss Soweto and definately stay with Flossie. She's the greatest!

Florence was a marvelous host—gracious and fun to be with. A sensitive and knowledgeable guide, she conducted us through several areas of historic import within the township. Her B&B is neat and roomy. Food was fine. Neighbors were outgoing and friendly as we took several walks through the neighborhoods. Rarely did we see other tourists where she took us. We particularly appreciated our visit to the market at Kliptown.

Room Tip: Write directly to Florence with personal request
