“The best kept secret in Johannesburg”
Reviewed 2 December 2011

Everything about this hotel is superb, the location, the quality of sleep, the cleanliness, the service, the space, the small size, the fantastic armosphere, the wifi, the gardens and outdoor dining in the very beautiful gardens and especially the food. There are no other hotels in Johannesburg that offer all of this together. A wonderful experience!

This is an amazing hotel. A genuine oasis within the hustle and bustle of Jo'Burg.

All the large rooms are very tastefully and individually decorated. There's wi fi and a complimentary mini bar and laundry service too (Yes, you did read that right!). Large comfy beds and plenty of room as well.

Staff are super helpful. Sides restaurant has great food and there's lots of good wines too.

I stayed on business, but would recommend Ten Bompas to anyone visiting Jo'Burg.

We stayed here for a weekend in May 2011. The service was very friendly and professional and made you feel welcome from the very beginning.

The suite we had was amazing, with lots of thoughtful touches such as ipod dock, fireplace, open bar, complimentary canapes and champagne. The fire was a little tricky to work out though, and the room was a bit too cold.

We had dinner and 2 breakfasts at the restaurant which were absolutely fantastic.

The grounds itself were well maintained but nothing very special.

This hotel is a nice alternative from a larger place, with the personal touch and a few eclectic features that make it memorable.

My husband and I stayed at Ten Bompas on the way back from a wedding in Mozambique. We typically prefer boutique hotels over large chains and with all of the great reviews and the lure of individually designed rooms it sounded like a superb idea. Overall we were very pleased. The breakfast was no doubt the best I've ever had at a hotel. The service was splendid - in particular, our concierge was phenomenal. In fact, he is such an asset to the hotel that if it were up to me, I'd make him part owner, seriously. My only complaint is that it was c-o-l-d in our room! We visited in the winter time and it honestly seemed colder in our room than it did outside at night. Even with the fireplace going and the heat on maximum it was still too cold to walk around the room without bundling up. I discovered this was due in part to drafts coming from the windows and doors leading to the patio area. Otherwise, it was wonderful. We would certainly recommend the hotel to others but I think if we're paying $500 nightly I expect to be comfortable in the room without having to wear my winter jacket!

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We took note of your comments on the draft - this has been fixed by inserting rubbers under the aluminum doors. We can confirm that the hotel rate in 2012 is now less than US400 a night for a full suite and includes full breakfast, complimentary mini bar, laundry and high speed wifi. We hope to see you again! Warmest regards Peter Aucamp

Stayed here for 5 nights with my husband and 2 year old daughter. We all loved Ten bompas. From the moment we checked in, we felt we made the right choice for our hotel in Joburg. Super friendly and attentive staff, nothing was a problem, and all our requests were dealt with efficiently and with a huge smile. The restaurant was the best food we had in all our trip in SA. The suites are large, confortable and very secluded, all you hear is the sound of birds, and had a small outdoor area to relax in. The bathroom has steam room (v. cool) shower and a separate bath. The laundry is free (yes!) and was done at super high speed. The minibar is also free with all you may need to make your room time more enjoyable. The 5 pm treat (changed everyday) was also a lovely surprise.
The garden is an oasis, and was perfect for us to have lunch while our toddler run around!
This was by far my favourite hotel in SA.

We stayed here for three nights as a part of a tour in South Africa. The place is really a hidden pearl in terms of architecture, general ambiance and food. The rooms are spacious - ours was suite style and I think this is the standard - and make you feel really relaxed. A built in steam room in the bathroom. Minibar was free when we stayed there - very generous. My only wish would have been for the staff to be a bit more assertive and show a bit of attitude that would make you feel more at home. The service was very reserved and too servile. Hopefully this has changed since I was there. Overall, I cannot recommend the place enough.
