I spent several nights at the Bohemian earlier this month. It was fabulous! The property reminded me of a luxury Italian villa. The rooms and common areas are beautifully decorated with antiques and paintings from all over the world. There is a beautiful garden courtyard with a pretty fountain. I loved the small pool area which was perfect for relaxing... More

Wood, oil paintings, and kelims adorn the walls or floors to create a plush ambience dulling all the suburban sounds. Alta, our host, greeted us warmly at the front door upon arrival at this secure guest house. The gardens are... More

Our first night after the arrival in Johannesburg, very welcoming staff. The guesthouse is located in a very quiet and safe surrounding with clean rooms. If possible, have your dinner here (has to be ordered by around noon same day), that was sooo delicious!!!

This Guesthouse is truly a five (5) star hotel in disguise. Beautifully appointed with decor and comfort which exceeded expectations. The hosts are extremely helpful while respecting privacy. The Guesthouse is immaculately clean and has many quiet retreats for guests to enjoy. Superb hospitality, superb rooms and peacefully elegant. A must do for any discerning traveller.

We chose the Bohemian House purely because of the high ratings on here. From the moment we arrived our stay was perfect. Johan and Alta welcomed us warmly and informally as if we were returning family friends and showed us around their gorgeous property. We were offered a choice of rooms, each decorated to very high standards with every comfort.... More

A lovely stay that felt like home away from home. Every effort was made to make us feel comfortable. A few minor things that one would expect from a 5 star establishment was amiss though. This would however not prevent us from going back.
