What an amazing stay. Right from the time we booked, Angelo was so helpful. The staff are wonderful and everybody is so friendly and helpful. The place itself is very comfortable and within easy walking distance to some great restaurants. It is also very close to various Embassies and VFS Global. If you need to visit any of these, this is the place to stay. I cannot recommend Brooklyn Lodge highly enough. Thank you all for your helpfulness and kindness shown to complete strangers.

We were very happy with our stay at the Brooklyn Lodge. It was recommended by a South African friend because Brooklyn, an upscale suburb of Pretoria, was "safe" and the Lodge is located within walking distance to the Brooklyn Mall and several of the best resturants in Pretoria. The Lodge is a small, family-run hotel with perhaps 10 rooms. From the outside it could be mistaken for one of the office buildings on the same block. Inside it was very comfortable. The rooms, which were recently remodled, are very spacious and spotlessly clean. The fresh fruit and flowers placed in the room each day was a nice touch. Maria, the owner/manager, and her well trained staff were exceptionally friendly and eager to assist us in every way, e.g., Maria arranged tours for us, rented us a car and provided useful information about what to see and do in Pretoria and Johannesburg. Breakfast or afternoon tea were social occassions and we enjoyed meeting the other guests, mostly from the U.S. Freshly baked cakes and an array of other sweets were always on the table all day long. Maria was always busy doing something but was never to busy to answer questions or simply sit and chat over a glass of excellent South African wine. We were very pleased with the Lodge and will stay there again the next time we are in Pretoria.

Maria is a fabulous hostess - totally charming and helpful - and one of the primary reasons to stay here. She was especially helpful in introducing me to her other guests who were involved with similar work or had similar interests. Nice for someone traveling alone. The rooms are large and well-appointed and the better of the two rooms I stayed in was Room #9. It is both comfortable and quiet because it is on the side overlooking some back yards. Room #1 is very large and fancy, complete with a Jacuzzi, but the bed is too hard and it overlooks the street so it is noisy. Breakfast is bountiful and delicious, especially the scones! The wi-if is excellent and I would definitely stay there again.

This is a great place that makes you feel right at home. Maria, the proprietor, is amazing and goes out of her way to make sure all guests are having the best experience. The staff are friendly and always ready to help if needed. I spent a few weeks here, and I think I've spoiled myself from the chain hotel experience. Breakfast is served every morning, with a selection of cereals, pastries, fruits, and hot dishes made to order. Lunch and dinner can be ordered from the in-house restaurant, but the menu is dominated by pasta and pizza dishes. There are sandwich and salad options. No elevator, and I'm not sure if there are rooms on the ground floor. Internet is super fast! The rooms are equipped with heaters for the winter and have carpets placed around to keep the chill down, otherwise it's cold on winter nights with all tile floors. The whole property is a bit dated, but not worn. Wonderful rooftop area, not the best views, but still very relaxing. Brooklyn Mall is only two blocks down the street and there are 5 great restaurant options just one block down on Dey ST. Excellent location, wonderful staff - I'll definitely be staying here again!

This lodge is so comfortable and homey. Maria is absolutely the sweetest and incredibly accommodating!! I always look forward to my visits here. The rooms are lovely and those bathtubs are to die for. The afternoon tea and cakes are just the icing on top of an incredible stay. The lodge is very conveniently located near the Brooklyn mall and many restaurants.

It is a cliché, but it was really how it felt during the 4 nights I stayed in the Brooklyn Lodge on a business trip to Pretoria. Very spacious and clean accomodation with an enormous and well-equiped bathroom. Very friendly and helpful manageress and staff. Good breakfast. Free Wifi - almost indispensable nowadays. Pick-up from - and drop-off at - the J'burg airport arranged through the hotel. Nice and hassle-free.
Within 5 minutes walk from the Brookly Mall - a great shopping area with lots of food outlets. Many good restaurants to choose from, in the area.

Brooklyn Lodge has warm, wonderful people, spacious, well lit rooms, and made-to-order food. Maria is everyone's "mother" and she ensures that each guest, along with Angelo, is pampered. They, and all of the other staff members, treat you like family and friends. You can't find a better place to stay.....

The owner Maria makes you feel at home. This cozy lodge with about 18 rooms is a wonderful place to stay whether you are staying in Pretoria for business or passing through on your way to Kruger NP or beyond.

I have stayed at Brooklyn Lodge each of the last 5 years. Maria and her staff will take excellent care of you. The food is amazing and very reasonably priced.

This is a small, well-managed property that is well suited to business travelers.

My room was large and spotlessly clean. The bathroom was stunningly renovated and included a deep, free-standing bathtub that I enjoyed my first night. The split unit AC was a bit underpowered, given the size of the room, so that it took until 3:00 or 4:00 am each night until I felt really comfortable.

There is a restaurant/delicatessen in the hotel that opens at 6:30 am (very convenient) and closes around 8:00 pm (not a problem for me; I go to bed early).

There are no recreational facilities in the hotel but the front-desk manager offered to lend me a bike to go to a nearby gym that admits hotel guests gratis.
