“Good location but extremly dishonest”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2011

The only good thing is the location,very close to the airport of Johannesburg.Room was dirty and cold.The problem is the owner,absolutely unpolite and dishonest.They sold us a a tour of the city,telling us that we could see Mandela's house and the Apatheid museum but they were both closed,we asked him some explanations and a discount but he answered us that we had already pay and he couldn't returned us any money.We paid 50 € for seeing nothing,he didn't even want to listen us,i really can't undesrtand how he can manage a guest house.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2010

When we were transiting through Johannesburg, our car rental office suggested Petra because of proximity to the airport. We stayed there on our return as well. Its in a quiet neighborhood with a green yard and pool. Beautiful pet birds sunned themselves in the yard, while the owner's stumpy rotund dog coaxed backscratching out of my daughters. Petra had the best wifi (free) we found on the hostel/guest house circuit in South Africa and the manager went out of his way to help us transfer and print our airline tickets.
