We spent 4 days at the Lucky Bean when we needed to wait for a safari we were going to start in a few days. Upon our arrival we were met by one of the women who is a caretaker for the guest house. A few minutes later the owner Conway came in and we were shown to our room. Upon our request we were moved to a room with a/c and we soon found out that we did not need it. That night we walked down to 7th street and ate dinner, and we ubered back about $2 US. The next morning we contacted Conway and asked to move to a different room which was bigger but did not have a/c, Conway said we absolutely could and we spent the rest of our time there. Upon our return to Lucky Bean that afternoon our belongings had been moved to a beautiful and Big room. TV had some movie channels and sports, also CNN. We had a nice patio to spend some time outside and there was a pool but we did not use it. We got information about how to get downtown and both Conway and his wife helped us. He suggested if we wanted to visit Soweto a woman who had lived there. We took a day long trip with her it was fantastic. Other days we ubered to downtown the cost and the uber was about 4.50 US each way. Breakfast each day was made to order, great coffee, and there were also fruit and cereals if you wish. Water from the tap in all of Johannesburg is drinkable and we did drink it each day. Conway has a fridge stocked with wines and beers as well as juices and bottled water for your use at a minimal charge which is all on the honor system. The Lucky bean is in an area which is what we consider very safe during the day, we walked around and down to the 7th street area to eat when we wanted when it was light out. Very good restaurants there. After dark as Conway said just Uber back, very simple. We would highly recommend the Lucky Bean Guest House for anyone who is interested in a great place to see Johannesburg and relax. Conway and staff are very nice, accommodating and the place is so comfortable. Thank you Conway and staff for a great and restful stay.…
I stayed at the Lucky Bean for three nights in early January 2020. My stay was very nice. I had Skyline room, nice view! and room. Breakfasts were also nice, and the staff was helpful in arranging an Uber for me.
We stayed over with a bunch of other couples and we had a great time. The owners, Conway and Natasha were very nice and helpful. The rooms are pretty big and clean, and the breakfast is delicious (and the staff are very friendly and kind!). It was the perfect place to just sit down by the pool and relax before our flight back home. Thank you so much for your great hospitality!
This is THE place to be in Jo'burg. We got safety, space, precious decoration, comfort, tasty & full home made breakfast (even very early) and we have been welcome by so special owners👍💯. One of the double bedroom offers a very nice view on the city from a nice terrace.Book now & save the adress 🤗
