We felt very safe and welcomed here. The service was fantastic from the outset- the email correspondence was fast and helpful, the taxi transfer from the airport was reassuringly well organised and the Whatsapp correspondence before travel helped us be organised. The room was lovely, the breakfast fantastic, and the location worked well for us as the next street along had great restaurants and bars.

The family suite was perfect for my family of 4 and included a baby cot. The staff was so friendly and went the extra mile to make us feel welcome. We also felt safe within the walls. Super comfortable bed and great breakfast!

The staff at 84 on 4th are wonderful and go out of their way to make sure your stay is comfortable. The rooms are clean and the entire guest house has a lovely vibe to it. Also, the location is great--lots of coffee shops and restaurants within walking distance. I will certainly stay here again the next time I am in Joburg.
