I stayed at Amanzi for three weeks in June upon relocating to South Africa. I picked one of the studios as I was alone and it was a lot of space for one, furnished very nicely and with all the necesary equiment for a long stay.
My highlights were the breakfasts, where I was greeted by the lovely team, as well as their pets. It just gave me a very homey feeling.
The team is always on call to answer any questions or help sort any issues.
I highly recommend Amanzi.
Amanzi is our automatic choice if we are heading for Jo’burg. Jacaranda Cottage proved the perfect base. It is comfortable (including the bed) and well equipped. Water was always piping hot. And breakfast was enough to negate the need for lunch.
Our hosts looked after us perfectly. Always helpful, but never intrusive. The garden includes a decorative stream and is inhabited by hadida ibis, and the house lies in a leafy suburban area. We walked to a nearby café and park and felt quite safe doing so. Wifi was fast and available throughout.
Highly recommended. We are greatly disappointed when it has been full and we have not been able to secure a room.
We stayed at the Amanzi Guest House for nearly 2 months after relocating from Switzerland and before settling in to our own home.
It was the best choice ever – the place is very child friendly (there are dogs, a pool and lots of open spaces outside), the area is safe, a beautiful park is in walking distance and most important of all – Pam, Rob, Deli, Tabbang and Leana are just amazing.
It felt like a family to us and they were very helpful and kind.
We would recommend staying there to anyone!
I chose Amanzi as a landing spot for my first 3 weeks in Johannesburg, as I had just relocated to RSA for work. It was a great alternative to staying at a hotel as it offered similar quality of service and independence, but with a more personal feel when it comes to decor and amenities.
The studio is kept clean and fully equipped, and the staff are friendly and always available to help.
True to form, Pam, Rob, Leanne and Ryan are lovely attentive hosts and fun neighbors!
Amanzi is my home away from home in Jo’burg. A beautiful, quiet garden oasis in a pretty suburban area, the rooms/apartments are spacious, well-appointed, and very well cared for. Rob and Pam, owners of Amanzi, are warm, friendly, gracious hosts, attentive to and very respectful of their guests.
Feels like family there.
The daily breakfast is fantastic – the staff cooks to order, along with cereals, fruit, fresh coffee and home-made bread – served in a solarium dining room overlooking the front garden. There is a grocery, wine shop and several good cafes/restaurants within a short walk.
The international employees of our company always stay at Amanzi when in Jo’burg.
Private, safe and inviting. Highly recommended!
My 3rd trip here over the last few years, this time pleasure not for business. I have never stayed anywhere that feels so much like home from home. Pam, Rob and the staff are wonderful. The rooms are very good, breakfast is lovely and always freshly cooked. It’s so peaceful and quiet, surrounded by trees it feels like you are in the country yet still very convenient for the city. Would thoroughly recommend.
