“Absolutely Farendastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

I am staying at the Absolute Farenden apartments and will be here for another 3.5 weeks. It is a wonderful place with all the amenities one needs for a long stay. The staff are very friendly and Marie who manages the apartments is absolutely fantastic! They even provided us transportation to our workplace and to local restaurants when we needed them.
Highly recommend this place for short or long visits in the Arcadia area in Pretoria.

Room Tip: Pick their 2 story rooms for more space.

You always hear the phrase “A home away from home”. I thought this “cliché” was a great advertising line until I found Absolute Farenden Apartments.

Often the nice looking accommodation in brochures and websites are a nightmare to find. For once, it is a breeze as it is off the main street into Pretoria (N4) – This helps :-) especially after a long day in traffic as the location is great, close to all the main access routes, near the Embassies, Loftus (the home of the famous Blue Bulls rugby team) and surrounding parks.

It lives up to the first impression of a neat, modern, luxury, yet warm apartment block with sufficient parking and 24 hours security.

The décor in the apartments reflects excellent taste with no expense spared to ensure quality and neat trimmings. The apartments are spacious and the layout well planned to be functional, yet personal. Added extras include WIFI and a relaxing afternoon on the terrace with Loftus and the University of Pretoria in the background.

Besides the friendly and efficient welcome at reception, the staff members are competent, always friendly and willing to be of assistance.

Being away from home is normally associated with the thought of “I cannot sleep if it is not in my own bed”. I can truly say that here it is not the case as the environment is quiet and the bed it is really so comfortable that I actually consider to make it my next buy.

To all wanting excellent value for money accommodation, be it for a quick overnight or long stay, I would definitely recommend you stay at http://www.absolutefarenden.com/

Having stayed at numerous establishments, it is the one place where I arrived as a stranger and left as a friend …

Was on a business trip to Pretoria and needed accommodation for 1 night. Although Absolute Farenden targets travelers who are looking for self-catering longer lets, this place was also perfect for the short trip business traveler. They don't serve breakfast (yet... I was told they are planning to open a small restaurant next year) but provide all other hotel services. The apartements are nicely designed, very clean with very comfortable beds and with good security. And affordable... highly recommended!
