We loved staying at Arum's Place. The rooms were wonderful - large, cozy and spotless, hosts and staff were very kind and the location in Melville is great. Delicious breakfast, too. Thank you for having us!

They were the perfect hosts, waited up for us to arrive.... The breakfast was the best we've ever had, and the staff are so friendly. The unit was stunning with some unexpected luxuries. We will definitely be back in the near future!

If you're considering staying at one of the many guest houses in Johannesburg, look no further. Lovely rooms, delicious breakfast, and kind and caring hosts. I highly recommend Arum Place Guest House. Tell Daisy & Minny I said hello.

Arum Place is a lovely place to stay. It was easy to get to other places in Johannesburg. It was quiet, clean, and equipped with everything we possibly needed. The owners were incredibly accommodating to our travel schedule. Breakfast was delicious as well.

I'm afraid it's not my guest house - I was a traveller, but they took four of us plus luggage to Park Station for R400 if my memory serves me correctly.
