10 2nd Avenue is the first fully Halaal 5 star boutique hotel in Johannesburg so it was the obvious choice for my husband and I to visit for a 5 star dinner experience for our Anniversary. The ambience of the dining area is lovely. Table settings are elegant and we had the dining area to ourselves which made for a... More

I received a warm welcome and was offered a seat in the lounge and a cool drink while I waited for the room to finish being cleaned. The house itself is large and charming, with art and books in the common spaces. My room was reasonably sized and had a small private outdoor balcony which was nice in the evening,... More

I have stayed several times at this boutique hotel and it is more brilliant every time I visit. It's at the higher end of the accommodation spectrum but it's worth every cent. Beautiful setting, amazing rooms and service that cannot be matched. Perfect ten out of ten!

Very friendly, comfortable place to stay in a wealthy residential neighborhood. It was nice to have a green garden/verandah/pool to sit by rather than being cooped up in a high-rise. The food is good and reasonably priced. Staff is very accommodating. The one thing I was missing was a treadmill (there's no exercise room on the property), but I figured... More

Hotel and staff are lovely. Friendly, warm, safe, authentic. It was a delight being there. There was a small downside. I asked for a driver and Collins was recommended.

What a great breakfast spread. hot and cold; English and continental. Staff met us with a welcome beverage and sat in the beautiful gardens prior to our meal. The interesting menu was "classy" and the food was served in style ... Great place to celebrate a special occasion. Reasonably priced ... other hotels in the area are twice the price!
