Siyabonga Guest House
Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

I found this guest house on the internet as i was looking for a place for my step son to spend a few nights while in Joburg.The manager Sheila was so friendly and very receptive.She organised a taxi to go and collect my step son from the airport and ensured he got a nice room.The rooms are large and fully furnished with dstv and hot water throughoutvthe day.There is a swimming pool and pool table.Siyabonga is in a very nice area of Joburg as there are many shops nearby and its in walking distance to Eastgate shopping mall.I would definitely recommend this guest house.

I would not recommend the hotel at all...Rooms are filthy and dirt are swept and keep in corners...If you book for a rate then you get the surprise of your life..the lady will then increase the price...verify the prices of Taxis before you book transport with them as its cheaper most often.....Watch out for hanging lavatories and falling doors..Truly what you see on the Website is no match for the real thing....

Service is very poor and surely don't get squeezed into a single transport...
I wish the South African Tourism Board would do a complete inspection of the premises.

Room Tip: If you have a must to go and no place else, ask for top floor rooms, although not really good, you m...

I had a great time at Siyabonga Guest House.It was very homely and cosy,the rooms were well kept with adequate facilities i.e TV,refridgerator e.t.c.The bath and toilet were clean and matched surpassed standard requirement.The Manager was down to earth and helped in guiding me through city of Jo'burg.I hope to visit SA some other time and trust me,it would always be Siyabonga Guest house.Thunbs up!!!!

The accommodation is average but the people who run the guesthouse are amazing... they picked us up and dropped us off wherever we needed to go and were so helpful. They made out first few nights in Johannesburg at the beginning of our trip to South Africa wonderful and gave us a great impression of the South African people.

Only parking is a tandem driveway so if someone wants to move their car you get a call at 12pm midnight to do so! Toilet concertina door held together with masking tape which had broken so we had NO privacy! Shower didnt work, toilet didnt flush properly, the fridge was filled with the food for the main kitche so they would just walk in to your room and fecth eggs in the morning! The main door didnt close from the outside so we had to request a long padlock! Basin and bath so stained and decrepit I wouldnt bath or brush my teeth! Shocking!
