Brooklyn Place Guesthouse is a beautiful place with excellent service. It is so quiet that you would forget that you are in one of the capital cities of south africa. The staff is so friendly and so helpful, right from the check-in to breakfast (the next morning). The rooms are sanitary and neat, everything in its place. This is my home whenever I need to visit Pretoria for work or leisure.

My recent visit to Brooklyn Guesthouse proved to be a very good experience. Well located in a well-decorated Victorian-style residence with a beautiful swimming pool, the guesthouse offers both convenience and security. The staff was a model of hospitality. They were welcoming, friendly, and willing to go the extra mile to ensure my stay was comfortable. The rooms were clean and well-appointed. Thank you, Brooklyn Guesthouse team. I look forward to my next visit!

Most friendly reception and excellent service from start to a wave goodbye. The breakfast was top class. I sat outside enjoying the sounds of birds visiting the garden. I definitely recommend this guesthouse. It’s beautiful and the room was more than I expected. Better than 5 star hotel!

We stayed overnight for a Visa appointment. Close to VFS Global. Tasty breakfast was served by friendly staff. Room and en-suite were spotlessly clean, spacious and first class. Access to immaculate garden and pool. Didn't even notice load shedding. Highly recommended.

I was in town for an academic conference, and had expected to just sleep at the guest house, it ended up that others attending the same conference were staying there as well. I was able to have wonderful conversations in the garden and get to know people I would never have met I had I stayed in a hotel. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating. My first day I had bought some wine, cheese, and bread for a simple lunch and had asked to use a cutting board. Instead they insisted I use a proper tray with a doily, plates, wine glasses, and napkins. That set the stage for one of the most delightful afternoons I’ve had in some time sharing my lunch with another guest! I hope to get back again, and would heartily recommend s the guesthouse to others.

I only stayed one night at Brooklyn Place, but it was perfect. An easy distance from the Hatfield Gautrain station, which required a taxi since currently Ubers cannot pick up at the Gautrain for the avoidance of conflict. The owners both greeted me, charming people who could not be warmer and more hospitable. It is "Victorian" in many aspects, though perfectly modern. Many thoughtful touches abound, right down to the bedside carafe of port or sherry (I didn't partake so not sure, but appreciated its presence). The room was a good size, the bed and bedding perfectly comfortable, and a delicious, very generous breakfast all made me regret to press on. Will definitely return next time in Pretoria.

I have stayed at BPGH on several visits to Pretoria. It is a beautiful 2-storey Edwardian-style home set in an upscale, quiet, safe neighborhood of elegant homes, well-manicured lawns and numerous trees, including the iconic Jacaranda. Pretoria is the administrative capital city of South Africa and many of the homes are the foreign embassies of other countries in South Africa. The house is furnished with rich brocaded curtains, elegant furniture, books, and many original paintings and figurines. The grounds are immaculate with manicured lawns, well-tended shrubs and beautiful flowers. The swimming pool is a sapphire jewel of crystal clear water. The property tastefully evokes the feeling of a bygone era in South African history. It is restful and serene. There are seven rooms that range from cozy to spacious, and a meeting room that can accommodate about 20, so the property can also host small gatherings and meetings. The owners and staff are friendly and attentive. Their goal is to make their guests feel welcomed, comfortable and looked-after. And in particular I would like to mention Mr Van Heerden's assistant, Chanel, whose smile and cheerful personality spread sunshine wherever she goes. Brooklyn Place Guest House gets my highest recommendation.
