I spent the first week of November 2016 at Amanzi Guest House. The house is situated in an oasis of a garden in a good neighbourhood of Johannesburg. Apartment 4 was modern, spacious and clean. You can enjoy your breakfast outdoors while listening to the birds, read a book, or take advantage of the 50/50 mbit wifi. There are a...

I stayed only one night but I could easily have enjoyed a longer stay at Amanzi. The room was outstanding, the breakfast excellent and the hosts friendly. The wi-fi worked well, which is not often the case at B&B's. The garden is beautiful and the birdlife lovely.
