Amazing hotel, with beautifully situated rooms (we had suite # 1). Had dinner and breakfast at the hotels restaurant and both were simply fantastic. Although we only spent only one night here, our memories here will stay on forever! The views during sunrise were just perfect.

We had a really lovely stay at the very hip and trendy Pablo House. . Nikola and the entire staff are amazing and always smiling too. Everything was spotlessly clean, the rooms are lovingly designed and spacious. The views outside our room were amazing...could not believe we wee in the city! We enjoyed all our meals there too. Thank you to the Pablo House Team. It was just what we needed. Regards, Venishree

The service of Pablo House staff is impeccable. They are extremely friendly and helpful, as well as cater to your every need. Beautiful views and decor from rooms and restaurants. We had pets with us and they were extremely accommodating to our two dogs. Room 6 was on the ground floor right by the Beautiful garden with a pool. Parking at the location isn't ideal, but the kindness of the staff makes up for that. The gentlemen that received us upon arrival were so professional and kind- they helped us with luggage and even opened our car doors for us. The food is very nice, the main menu does not have a lot of vegetarian options, although the meal I had was delicious. We would definitely stay at Pablo house again.

We only stayed one night at Pablo House but wish it could have been longer. What an awesome and trendy B&B! We loved the overall look and feel of the place as well as the vibe. The decor is tasteful and modern and the rooms super comfortable. The rooms come with a flat screen TV, nespresso machine, king size bed, rain shower, mini bar fridge etc. There are great views from all the rooms as well as from the restaurant area. The staff are super friendly, helpful and exceptionally well trained. I love the feeling of being up in the trees looking out at the greater JHB area. There is a lovely private pool area at the bottom of the property that is designed like a mini oasis. You really don't want to leave and go explore anywhere else when staying at Pablo House and you don't need to. The restaurant is fantastic serving great pizzas and beautiful wine. We will definitely be back!

My boyfriend and I just spent our last night in Jo'burg together at Pablo House. We were immediately impressed with the stunning view, and decor of the place. It is designed beautifully and has a great energy and vibe. The check-in process was a but weird to start, we were told to sit in the lobby area and given drinks but no other information. We sat there just waiting for about 30 min. with no explanation or offer to sit at a table in the dinning room. We then were walked to our room- super cool, open plan bedroom and bathroom and a nice outdoor seating area. We were interested in getting a pre- dinner drink upstairs before our 7pm reservation. The service upstairs was confusing- thank god for Andrew he was the only person who paid any attention to us and was amazing. He was able to serve us food and drinks and made sure we were take care of for dinner, Thank you Andrew. We were told we had a reservation, but when we asked to move to a table there was a lot of waiting to "see if there was one open". The food was delicious, but the dinning room was loud and very unorganized. We then went to bed, only to wake up at 1am getting bit by mosquitoes and overheated. The room had no fan, and no mosquito repellent. We had to walk up to the reception area at 1am to ask for a fan- another shout out to the VERY kind and lovely security who helped us with a fan so we could sleep. Overall, we REALLY wanted to like this place but, but it felt short especially for the cost. We were confused most of the time, which is a terrible feeling when you are looking to just relax and enjoy. I would for sure go back for the pizza and view, but not to stay. We felt like an afterthought most of the time (except for Andrew and the security who were wonderful). Perhaps it was just an off night.
