My husband and I stayed here the last night of our trip through South Africa and couldn't have been happier with our choice! We arrived and were told that we had been upgraded to a bigger room, which was absolutely lovely. The two women who tended to breakfast were so nice, as was the manager, Jacques. The neighborhood was cute, and there were a couple of restaurants right in walking distance. Jacques was able to help us hire a driver to take us around town (to the apartheid museum, etc) and the price was much more reasonable than it would have been to hire a taxi off the street. We would definitely return to Village Green and would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Jo'burg!

I had to spend one night in Johannesburg. I can't imagine I could have found a better place than the Village Green, especially at the price I paid (less than US $100). I stayed in the Rose Suite, which was spacious, beautifully furnished, and very comfortable. The breakfast was fabulous. Best of all was the incredible service from the staff, led by Manager Jacques Kotze. Even before I booked the room, he arranged for a tour of Soweto on the morning of check-out to start an hour earlier than usual so that I would have time to catch a flight later in the day. When I arrived, on a Sunday, he arranged for two pairs of pants and a jacket to be pressed at no extra charge. The Village Green, located in one of Johannesburg's safest neighborhoods, is, without doubt, the best B & B I have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: I highly recommend the Rose Suite, which is where I stayed.

Village Green is a great place to stay in Johannesburg. It's located right in the middle of Parkview, one of the nicest suburbs with a really friendly feel about it, and Village Green has the same 'home away from home' quality. The staff are so friendly and the breakfasts are wonderful (as is Demarise's shortbread!) - rooms are large and well-equipped and the pool, set in lovely gardens, is beautiful. This really is a place you can relax, kick off your shoes and maike yourself comfortable. The rates are extremely reasonable for the quality of the accommodation. Highly recommended!

We stayed here for only one night during the World Cup.

We were welcomed so warmly, and given a welcoming glass of sherry whilst signing in. The manager was a bit flustered by the chaos of the World Cup, but did a great job, as did her assistants.

Our room was one of the smaller ones, but loads of room and a big bathroom. There was a queensized bed and it was very comfortable. We had access to the garden through french doors. Other rooms were bigger and you'd feel quite comfortable there for a long stay. There is also a pool, but it's not heated. Breakfast was included in the dining room and we had fruit salad and then a cooked meal - made by the ever-smiling staff.

We ate dinner over the road in an Italian restaurant (Francos?) and it was great and so reasonably priced.

Staff organised a tour of Soweto for us and I'd recommend it. We made sure to leave a decent donation with our guide to help the local community.

The only reason I marked it down a bit on price was that we were gouged because it was the World Cup, but then every hotel was gouging and it wasn't just this place. Their usual rate is less than half of what we paid and we'd stay there again if we were back in Joberg.

Almost forgot - it's got FREE wifi - fantastic.
