Bolanle's Place is very close to 7th Street in Melville. The apartment itself is clean and comfortable, though very chilly upstairs in the winter. Kenneth was very willing to show me around the area and help set up a cell phone, etc as I was in the process of moving to Johannesburg. Wifi was spotty, but not bad if you just need it downstairs for a short while. My one complaint is that the airport transfer offered by the accommodation was very expensive, R700 (nearly $70), (I later realized this is about 3 times as much as an Uber) so I would recommend finding another way to get there. After I left I asked for a receipt for my airport transfer so I could be reimbursed by work and have yet to receive this after 2 weeks and a few requests.
I read your review and I must say am very disappointed considering the fact that you think I ripped you off , maybe you forgot that I also recommended Uber to you and also help download the App on your phone as a means of cheaper transportation while you were at my apartment, first of all I don't offer cab services, I only do this airport pick up once for guest on their first day in the country considering the fact that they have been in a long flight and is not easy trying to catch a cab to the apartment with God knows how many luggage you have , 99% of my guest always grateful that I came picking them up after an exhausting flight in which you also confirmed, now saying this? Well..... Thanks for your opinion but it wasn't really necessary
Kenneth was really helpful and readily available
The apartment was beautifully clean and tidy and has all the amenities you need for a stay in Joberg. Made my trip a lot more relaxing than staying in a hotel :)
Great apartment and awesome view, a well appointed apartment with very comfortable furniture. Kenneth was very helpful and made the stay easy.
Kenneth is nothing short of a dream. After our HORRIBLE introduction to our first listing in the Maboneng district, I reached out immediately to Kenneth to see if Bolanle's Place was available. He responded within minutes to my inquiry and ensured I had all the information I needed. He even offered to have his driver personally come rescue us! Bolanle's Place is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. The most important thing for us is cleanliness and safety and the listing exceeded our expectation. Melville, where the listing is located is a beautiful, sweet, middle-upper class neighborhood with tons of restaurants and shops nearby. It is accessible to all parts in the Joburg area. Kenneth talked to us, wrote to me each day to make sure we were okay and gave us tons of information on things to do. We will absolutely be using this place each time we visit and highly recommend it to our friends.
First time in Joburg. We chose this place because of the reviews about Kenneth. They were spot on. Kenneth has been one of the best hosts that I've met in my dozens of AirBnBs. The apartment is beautiful -- and it is the place to stay at if you're trying to be close to the small town in Melville. Will be recommending this listing to my friends and followers on my blog. Thanks so much Kenneth!
Greetings, I chose this place to stay in large part because of the large number of positive reviews that were left. I am happy to add another positive review to the list. Kenneth was the most gracious and helpful host that one could ask for. Everything was as noted and he went above and beyond to ensure that I was comfortable and safe. He was able to recommend a number of good eateries and attractions which I found quite valuable. He also went the extra mile to ensure that I had the necessary sim card for my phone so I could text and call locally and this proved quite valuable. I felt quite comfortable coming and going and was able to access a driver for my longer trips with no problems. Kenneth also checked on me via text occasionally to make sure I was doing well and did not need anything and this again was much appreciated. There are no negatives about this space and the personality and hospitality of the host make it a no brainer. Thanks again Kenneth for helping to make my time in Joburg absolutely splendid. I look forward to returning again in the future. Cheers.
Kenneth was a sweet, welcoming, jovial, easygoing host. The space was comfortable, chic and looks exactly as it does in the pictures. My friends and I were comfortable, felt safe, and most importantly right at home.
The apartment is literally around the corner from the "hip strip"
everything that you need is right around the corner (atm, restaurants,shops, thrifts, just about everything you need.
The property is safe, gated, and my girlfriends and I came and went at our leisure. Kenneth was not smothering, and we knew that he was just an phone call away. I would definitely stay there again.
