I am a repeat visitor and while the property is under new ownership, it remains as good as ever. The staff are friendly and extremely professional. Definitely the best boutique hotel in Johannesburg. I would not hesitate to come back again.

Visited this venue twice already. Excellent food and they make the best coffee in town. The staff is very friendly and helpful. From the Security Guard at the gate to really everyone on site. Save parking and situated in a quiet environment. Really a place I can recommend for a breakaway, Will be going there for a third time soon.

10 2nd Ave. is a bit difficult to find at first since it is simply another gated entrance along a long street of gated properties. Once inside however you feel a world away from the surrounding city. Houghton Estate is a very upscale neighbourhood and the hotel is no exception. The staff are, simply put, amazing. They couldn't do enough...

Two things really stood out—the helpfulness of the owner/manager and staff, and the little extras that were added. A lot of attention to detail and making the guest feel welcome. The rooms are very spacious, with adequate place for working, and there is good Wi-Fi. The rooms all seem to be heated, either by gas fire or, in the case...
