Please disregard the December 2016 review. When I read it, I thought of canceling my reservation at Flossie's. Thank goodness I didn't. My friend and I spent 4 nights there and were delighted every minute! Florence and her staff are warm and helpful. She even took us on an extensive trip around Soweto sharing her personal experiences and local history....

It is feed-back like this which motivates me and my staff to go extra mile in making sure that our clients get the service they so much deserve , thank you very much ladies for your kind words.

Eish, where do I start? Never have the reviews I read been SO INACCURATE!! The property was NOT secure. Anyone from the street could access the building and end up in the common areas and possible gain access to the guest rooms. The main gate and the door to the building were not locked or manned. I tripped going upstairs....

This place is a true gem. From the moment I met Miss Florence, she gave me a great big hug like we were family. The entire space was immaculately clean and the king size bed and en-suite bathroom was a godsend after a sixteen-hour flight from Atlanta!!! The staff was very friendly and approachable, and the breakfast was superb. I...

I had the chance to stay at Flossie's in January and couldn't have been happier. I stayed with a friend and my 9 year-old. I was a little nervous about staying in Soweto, but am so glad I did. I wanted my daughter to see and learn about Soweto in a non-touristy, authentic way. Flossie's was perfect. We felt totally...

I was soooo impressed with Flossie and her staff at the B&B in Soweto. Flossie and her staff go out of their way to provide comfort and care while taking in all of the sights and sounds of such a thriving community. Flossie was able to treat me and my family like her own family when we were there. While...

Flossie's has a lovely upstairs balcony where you can chill after a busy day and just watch locals in the neighbourhood getting on their daily lives. Also a nice spot to catch up on your reading or plan your next activity. If she's not busy, Flossie could even join you for a chat.
