Super clean room. Convenient location, easy drive to the airport. The pool was very clean and the outdoor fireplace was a great touch. The entire staff was very welcoming and ready to help answer any questions. The "honor" bar was very convenient for the entire family.

Very pleasant stay, close to airport, Rooms are clean. Bathrooms spacious. Cats were friendly. Dog overweight. Breakfast selection sufficient. Service quick. But now you are forcing me to write at least 200 words, and I am getting annoyed.

This is a very reasonably priced place for an overnight stay with excellent access to the airport. You might argue that it is too close as it is directly below the flight path so a noisy jet passes overhead every few minutes at peak times. There seems to a curfew after 22:00 so there are no flights until the morning...

On our way between Zambia and Dar es Salaam we had to spend the night in Johannesburg. Instead of staying at an impersonal hotel at the airport we chose the Journey's Inn Africa. We were not disappointed. Excellent BBQ for dinner, clean room, bonfire and nice breakfast the next morning. Everything the we needed for this short transit.

Two things are indispensable for us when choosing a holiday accommodation: very nice hosts and excellent breakfast. We found both in the Journey`s Inn Afrika guest house. Whoever receives others warmly and gladly, usually makes sure that everything else is right. Just as in this case: We had a nice room, with a large bathroom. Also in the decorative design...

A great little hotel near airport, in a residential area. There's a supermarket and small shopping-centre about 1,4 km from the property. You can walk safely dying daytime. Friendly staff, good food, a nice garden with bonfire in the evening, and a small clean pool. Rooms are basic but with everything you need, we liked the interior. The rooms size...

Beautiful clean place with friendly service. Needed a place to overnight and rest up after flying in from Denmark, this was just what we needed and then a drop off at the airport to continue our journey. Was so impressed that we booked in again on our return journey. Will definitely do this again. Thanks a million.

This hotel is a gem. We were looking for a 2 night stay at a quiet, nice hotel to avoid the huge airport hotel experience. We had been traveling for 3 weeks by car and just wanted to relax in a safe, comfortable hotel before our departure by air. This hotel is lovely, so well cared for and the staff...

Thanks to Laurence and Alida for organising our trip to Victoria Falls and then the amazing Blue Train to Cape Town! Everything was spot on including all our transfers and lovely hotel at Vic Falls. Journeys Inn Africa was just right for our overnight stay in Jo'burg - friendly, good food and spotlessly clean. Thanks again for your professional friendly...
