The place is totally quiet which is my number one criteria.The loft-style studio is airy, fully equipped (including homemade rusks, tea and coffee), ,well decorated and spotlessly clean. It overlooks the garden. There is no noise other than an occasional rooster in the morning. It sounds like you are in the middle...

We stayed in Belhambra Cottage. What a delightful place, you would imagine being in a quaint UK cottage. The garden is delightful and very peaceful after the city rush. The staff were friendly & very efficient. I definitely recommend this place.

I spent the first week of November 2016 at Amanzi Guest House. The house is situated in an oasis of a garden in a good neighbourhood of Johannesburg. Apartment 4 was modern, spacious and clean.

I stayed only one night but I could easily have enjoyed a longer stay at Amanzi. The room was outstanding, the breakfast excellent and the hosts friendly. The wi-fi worked well, which is not often the case at B&B's. The garden is beautiful and the birdlife lovely.
