While Jo'burg has a bit of a reputation for not always being easy, 4living guesthouse is a wonderful little bit of peace and tranquility in the city. The gardens are beautiful, and the rooms airy and attractive. Breakfast was excellent. The Norwood shopping mall is about 15 mins walk away, with various cafés etc.

This guesthouse is a peaceful haven. The house features interesting artworks and the rooms are tastefully furnished. The breakfasts are most pleasant allowing for personal tastes and if the weather is fine served on the verandah over looking the pool and beautiful garden. The host Lee is most accommodating and does a great job to make guests welcome. Highly recommended!

The guesthouse was conveniently situated for our conference venue as well as for evening entertainment/eats at Melrose Arch. Lovely spacious room with adequate heating and solar lighting (in case of loadsheding) provided. Willingness to assist with everything from information regarding take-outs, taxis to the airport and blankets to take to the cold conference venue. Thank you ladies!

We spent the last two nights of our South African vacation and the whole family voted it the best accommodations of the trip! The rooms are clean and simply but beautifully decorated. The veranda and outdoor breakfast areas are relaxing and quiet. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating to all our needs. We felt pampered the whole time.

My short stay was peaceful and comfortable and I felt really safe. The setting is calming and the sound of the birds gives it the real country feel. Staff are friendly and caring. I would recommend this guesthouse if you are needing to relax in the midst of a busy city. From Sheila
