The stay was awesome and wonderful and i would like to come back again. The service is always good and i really appreciate. The bed is soft and nice and the room itself it's more spacious. The place is so quite one can afford to sleep till the next morning without any disturbances.

The service I experienced at the hotel was superb with extremely helpful and co-operative staff. The rooms were quite well maintained, location was residential with Killarney Mall available on 10-15 minutes walk. I liked the breakfast at the hotel since the fruits available was quite fresh.

Fantastic property. Beautiful garden, great service. Rooms spacious and quiet. It's a "halal" property so you won't get a glass of wine for dinner. If that's ok with you, perfect. I just wasn't prepared for dinner with water after a stressful day of work.

I am a repeat visitor and while the property is under new ownership, it remains as good as ever. The staff are friendly and extremely professional. Definitely the best boutique hotel in Johannesburg. I would not hesitate to come back again.

Visited this venue twice already. Excellent food and they make the best coffee in town. The staff is very friendly and helpful. From the Security Guard at the gate to really everyone on site. Save parking and situated in a quiet environment. Really a place I can recommend for a breakaway, Will be going there for a third time soon.

10 2nd Ave. is a bit difficult to find at first since it is simply another gated entrance along a long street of gated properties. Once inside however you feel a world away from the surrounding city. Houghton Estate is a very upscale neighbourhood and the hotel is no exception. The staff are, simply put, amazing. They couldn't do enough...
