I found House on York to be very cozy, it is a lovely place to hideaway from the buzzing of the city. What is great about this place is that it has the best of both worlds, peace and quite when you are inside and very close to Eastgate mall when you want to explore. Very clean pool and awsome...

The layout . cleanliness and entire experience was 5 star and i would recommend this place to anyone looking to enjoy their stay in Johannesburg. Staff was friendly and rooms were spacious with Wi-fi connection that had no issues. Tranquility guaranteed and a pleasurable experience overall. A true home away from home.

One of the best accommodation in the area of Johannesburg due to its accessibility of all the areas I needed to go to. EASTGATE shopping centre was close along with good restaurants along Queen Street. The guesthouse itself was a delight to be in with the sauna, pool and free Wi-Fi.

Such a fantastic, quaint guesthouse; the rooms are spacious and welcoming. The garden is beautiful all year round, with a swimming pool perfect for families of all ages. Close to the OR Tambo Airport and to various shopping malls, with antique shops and cafés a block away.
