Mi Casa Su Casa on 5th
Ranked #159 of 298 Johannesburg B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 October 2016

Spent four nights in this wonderful, homely villa located around the Wits campus area. Easy access to fine dining and bars. Price was very modest and the house attendant was very helpful. I would definitely recommend Mi Casa Su Casa to anyone who is travelling for fun, and on a budget. As it was low season, we had the entire house to ourselves and it was quiet and private.

Room Tip: Choose a room that overlooks the hills!

We would have liked to write a proper review of this hotel, but as they cancelled our long standing booking barely two weeks before we were due to stay because "other guests wanted to extend their stay" this is not possible. This type of behaviour is unacceptable. Need I say more!

Room Tip: Do not rely on a booking here.

This is a careless and amateur operation. Shabby half broken bathrooms, long faces at breakfast., exploitative and shady transportation services and the distinct impression you are being taken advantage of. On our 2.5 mnth tour of South Africa, this is, by far, the worst palce we stayed in.

Our stay in Micasa Sucasa was fantastic: Carolyne has been extremely accommodating and nice, the room was perfect, the swimming pool so nice for a break, the wifi was working perfectly well.
The location itself is really good, just few meters from the 7th Street for restaurants (the veggie burger at the Lucky Bean or a drink in the patio at the Ant were my favorite), it's a quick drive to Rosebank, Parkhurst, Maboneng, Sandton (just avoid the traffic jam hours for Sandton especially).
I'd love to come back there, it felt a bit like home.

Room Tip: The big bedroom in front of the swimming pool is awesome but you can hear the neighbors in the room...

Stayed here for a week while attending a conference. The staff went out of their way to help my stay be enjoyable and easy. Morning breakfast is great - juices, cereal, tea, coffee and any cooked breakfast you request. The rooms are comfy (although do request one with a shower not just a bath) and there's a lovely lounge to relax in, as well as pretty grounds with a pool. The trendy cafes and shops of Melville are a stone's throw away. A great choice for those looking for something more personal than a hotel in a cool area.

I call my experience at Mi Casa Su Casa Joburg's finest because it really was just that for me. I have stay at lodges in Gauteng and their names were not worth remembering. The room was big and very neat. I love the clear white sheets on the bed because for me hygiene and especially bedding makes or breaks a hotel. the pool was also clean and inviting. The help was also very friendly and patient with guests including me and all my queries. I also liked (very) much the fact that guest house is situated in the very heart of Melville right ay the bottom of 7th Street where all the clubs are. One the last night I partied solo and walked back alone. But I had left all my valuable locked in a safe so not to attract the criminals. Thanks Dean for making me and my colleagues feel at home and managing our schedules so effectively. The meal of Indian food was the highlight of my time there.

We booked into this B&B for a night, having been unable to find accommodation in the very nice Melville Turret down the road, where we had stayed on a previous visit to Joburg. Mi Casa Su Casa was, quite simply, awful! You get the impression the owner is trying to make a fast buck out of the lucrative and thriving B&B business in Melville, without caring a damn about the service he provides -- or about giving a completely false impression of the place on his advertising website! In our room the paintwork was blistered and peeling in both bedroom and bathroom; the shoddy bedside light didn't work, and it shared a plug with the racketty airconditioning; the dusty and flimsy curtains didn't slide on the curtain rail and came off at one end when one tried to draw them; the bathroom cupboards under the old sink were rotting at the bottom edge and lacking paint. In fact the whole place was thoroughly shabby and smelt of cigarettes. There was no milk on our bedroom tea tray. At breakfast there was a coffee percolator with no coffee in it. The only fruit -- in a country that produces the most fabulous variety at this time of year (summer) -- was a bunch of tired bananas. I declined the full English breakfast, and asked for two lightly boiled eggs. They arrived in a cereal bowl, next to a pile of fried mushrooms and a tomato, and when I looked at this weird arrangement and asked for an egg cup for my (very hard) boiled eggs instead, I was told: "Sorry, we don't have egg cups". The woman serving breakfast was very pleasant and willing, but she had clearly not been given any training in catering for customers. The whole establishment is a disgrace, and I mused that in UK the owner could be reported to the Advertising Standards Authority for misrepresentation. Just look at the website! But just be sure not to take it on face value!
