We stayed here for one night, as we arrived in Joburg one day before our onward flight. As others have commented, this is a beautiful house and every room is very comfortable. The breakfasts are excellent and this is one of the nicer, safer areas of the city. Very convenient for Sandton City as well, for those visiting on business....

A pleasant relaxed atmosphere in the centre of the city. Large well-appointed rooms and helpful staff. Large pool and gardens give a homely feel. Shame that a few minor blips and missed attention to detail prevent a first class report. Minor points make good places great.

This guesthouse could be great if a few small things were changed. There was no air conditioning in our room and the sun shines in the huge window from the minute it comes up, so it's extremely hot. The wifi in our room was useless so we had to go and stand out in the stairwell to get online. The...

We stayed at the Blu Swan Guest House for about 2 weeks during January/February 2015 and we were so glad that we made this decision rather than to stay in a standard unfriendly hotel. Blu Swan is homely, comfortable and of great value, it caters for both business and family oriented guests. The guest house itself is modern and spread...

This guesthouse offer the opportunity to experience the Johannesburg climate fully. With an old tennis court and big swimming pool I enjoyed the amenities after my workday. It is a home away from home and the breakfast served next to the pool was great. I can see that families will be welcome here as they have a trampoline and the...

We stayed at the BluSwan for 4 nights and it felt like we were in the middle of a calm oasis. The pool area is stunning while the balcony room overlooks the Johannesburg central business district..Our daughter fell ill and Ben, the most helpful manager, made arrangements to accommodate her separately, even thought the guest house was fully booked! Amazing...
