Had a great stay at the rather large & clean room with large attached bathroom. Very well located in a nice, upcoming neighborhood with plenty to see & do (walking distance). Gated guesthouse, providing a great feeling of safety. Breakfast is included and is worth your while.

We chose this property because it offers economical prices that include WiFi and breakfast, and is in a very safe, mostly residential neighborhood, that's walking distance to the restaurants, shops and nightlife of Johannesburg's Melville district. If you're into the small-scale B&B experience in a quiet area, Ginnegaap offers good value. It's not a perfect property, but is attractive and...
