“Its a very dirty place”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2012

They have a very nice garden but the rooms are very dirty. I paid for two days and on the first day I claimed the sheets and the pillows are dirty anda she said that tomorrow she will send her clerks to change the cloths. Tomorrow I check out and I asked her to give my money back for the second day anda she did not give me my money back. I went to another place more better and She is still with my money. Do not go there if you need a clean place.

El Gecko is a delightful, quiet oasis in the city. Clean, and safe, with the friendly help of Pat and her staff to organize meals out, and excursions in Johannesburg. Enjoyed watching the masked weaver try to weave a house to suit his wife. Beautiful garden, and lots of plans for improvements. Had dinner in the lodge one night, a nice variety of South African dishes. Will stay again if we have the opportunitiy. The nearby new Greenstone Mall a good option for meals and shopping.

Room Tip: Ask for one at the back.

El Gecko is a lovely, comfortable place to stay while visiting Johannesburg. The B&B is in a gated community in a quiet area. All rooms have access to the lovely yard and gardens. Rooms are comfortable and come with private bath, a small frig, microwave and a kettle to make coffee and tea. Breakfasts were lovely and cooked to order.

Pat and her family are lovely, welcoming hosts to the area. They were able to arrange tours, transportation and provide us with information about attractions, restaurants and shopping in the area. Dinner can also be provided at El Gecko with advance notice.
