bheki arranged for me to be picked up at park station -- which isn't particularly far, but is far with a suitcase. the room was nice and bright, and, in an oddity for central johannesburg, there was a full-size fridge and stove in the flat. additionally, the shower was *wonderful*.
i know the neighborhood well, and i socialised with various friends, as well as my son, who also lived in the area [and now in the building]. the building is a great base from which to explore central johannesburg. it's really outstanding.
honestly, there was only one real downside. there's no elevator in the building, and the room is on the third [top] floor. that's 65 steps, which were a bit of a mission after a night of heavy drinking and any of the nearby bars in central joburg. also, it prevented me from buying as many groceries as i wanted, as i would have to take them up all those stairs. but i did end up spending a lot of time in the nice restaurants in the area. so even that negative turned out to be a positive.
awesomely placed, well-priced accommodation in central johannesburg. i would almost definitely stay there again, and highly recommend it.
maboneng is a very stylisch aerea unfortunately almost everything was closed because of holidayseason! :-( rooftopparty was great and livingroom is a very nice place too with good music and atmosphere! bheki and jabo are very nice and helpful!!! they are imbued with good will and we wish them all the best on their way. the center of jo'burg - as we have discovered so far - has rather the appearance of a ghost town. there would be so much potential in the city and we hope that all the positive developments should continue.
Maboneng is a great neighborhood, absolutely unique, totally secure. Main Street life is a great building to live in, Bheki made my one month stay there feel like I was actually home.
Great & fast communication on my last minute request. Bheki was very helpful and the place & neighbourhood were just perfect. Clean and stylish art hotel, rooftop views of Johannesburg and places to wine & dine all over the place. Thank you for everything & I'll be back !!!
A great place to stay in very cool area of Joburg! The room was perfect and Bheki was super helpful. He showed us around area, which had great places to eat, an entertainment venue (where we saw some South African stand-up comedy) and an independent film theater. We thought the urban revival project was great and we can't wait to come back!
It was cool being the first Airbnb guest to book. The Maboneng precinct is super cool and exciting. I had an event going on the cinema there and needed a place close by to stay.
I dealt with Bheki in my booking and he couldn't have been nicer and was very accommodating. He made sure that all my needs were met. He took me on a tour of Maboneng to look at other possible venues for next year's event.
The room that I stayed was stylishly designed and well kept and well priced. Very comfortable bed. I slept so well. The shuttle service was also a huge asset and very convenient. There was also many options for food in the area.
In general, the Maboneng Precint is a very cool area to stay in, with plenty of creative energy and urban chicness that I feel is the future of Johannesburg.
