Why pay ridiculous prices for luxury accommodation?? We've got it all... beautifully decorated rooms, full en-suite bathrooms in all our rooms, TVs, mini-bars, a gorgeous courtyard garden and really awesome breakfasts... but we don't charge a fortune! That is what makes us different!
Originally established as Saffron House Guest House in 2001 - we were one of Melville's first guest houses. We'd love to welcome you to our charming establishment where our focus is entirely on guest satisfaction, right from our friendly "hello" when you walk through the gate, to fond goodbyes when you leave.
Situated a stone's throw from Melville's famous 7th Street with its pavement cafes, restaurants, antique/vintage stores and cocktail clubs, we are in the perfect location to explore Johannesburg, being only a few minutes from fabulous places like the Apartheid Museum, two universities, Gold Reef City, Constitution Hill as well as a mere 30 minutes from the Cradle of Humankind.
We've purposely steered away from the "clean-lined minimalist chrome and glass" decor style - ours is a classy eclectic mix of Moroccan and South African influences which is cozy, inviting and fun... you'll want to put your feet up, relax and enjoy!!
If you need an airport transfer or tours arranged, we have our own luxury bus that can transport up to 7 passengers in style, comfortable in the knowledge that the driver is correctly licensed and the vehicle insured and with all the necessary permits. Let us know your flight details and we'll be there to fetch you with a big smile!
Very lovely hosts. This really depends on your expectations. Breakfast was very cozy at 1 table. The guest house was very full and so we were obliged to sit with other guests. That works if personalities gel but not if they don't. There are some nice outside spaces that could have been used for breakfast dining weather permitting. Bathroom sink could use nearby shelf to put toiletries on. Supplies in rooms fairly basic. But certainly good value for price!
Saffron House was great. The guest house has a refined character with simple and clean rooms. Aubrey was very accommodating and an excellent host. Thanks for a great stay in JoBurg.
Saffron House is a very Nice place, Quiet and very safe. It is very hospitable with charming and friendly hosts and of course affordable prices. My family and I really enjoyed our two weeks stay at Saffron during last christmas and New year season
I recommend it for any occasion and especially for those who seek solace after the whole year of hefty and tight work schedules
I loved staying at the 84th on 4th. The neighborhood was safe and walkable with tons of cute shops and restaurants! The breakfasts by Precious and Kristine were the BEST I had during my whole 3 week stay in South Africa! I love those ladies and can't wait to go back one day!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
