This place is a true gem. From the moment I met Miss Florence, she gave me a great big hug like we were family. The entire space was immaculately clean and the king size bed and en-suite bathroom was a godsend after a sixteen-hour flight from Atlanta!!! The staff was very friendly and approachable, and the breakfast was superb. I... More

I had the chance to stay at Flossie's in January and couldn't have been happier. I stayed with a friend and my 9 year-old. I was a little nervous about staying in Soweto, but am so glad I did. I wanted my daughter to see and learn about Soweto in a non-touristy, authentic way. Flossie's was perfect. We felt totally... More

I was soooo impressed with Flossie and her staff at the B&B in Soweto. Flossie and her staff go out of their way to provide comfort and care while taking in all of the sights and sounds of such a thriving community.

Flossie's has a lovely upstairs balcony where you can chill after a busy day and just watch locals in the neighbourhood getting on their daily lives. Also a nice spot to catch up on your reading or plan your next activity. If she's not busy, Flossie could even join you for a chat.

Flossie's Bed and Breakfast has become my home away from home. Flossie herself is a beautiful, welcoming, passionate hostess. My first time here a few years ago, I was nervous to stay in Soweto. My fears vanished immediately. This place is very safe, and the neighborhood loves Flossie and her guests. Her rooms, bathrooms, and community room are beautiful, recently... More

Florence, 62 years old, manage this b & b with passion and professionalism. The structure has ten rooms comfortable, clean. great breakfast, excellent wifi, safe area, easy to get (there is also a box for the rental car).

We booked two rooms at Flossie's for our last night in South Africa. We had only one night to spend in the Joburg area and decided it would be more interesting to see what was going on in Soweto than to stay in a European-style suburban place. Flossie's turned out to be a great experience. Because we were exhausted, we... More
