I won't be telling you that this is the five-star, super luxus lodge...

BUT it is a great place to stay. Stevie and Daisy have outdone themselves providing an accomodation with familiar, relaxing atmosphere where one can enjoy his/her stay in Johannesburg.

To the facts: clean, comfortable, pretty cheap, free transport from and to the airport and all in all a great service.

A big plus: when Stevie got me from the airport together with his cute 2 yo daughter, I got to hear the best performed childrens' story during the ride!

Thank you guys.
Definitely visiting again the next time.

Good value for your money.Steve is very friendly and helpful. Next time I have to wait for a flight in Jozi I know for sure where to stay. The garden is a splendid place to kill some time birdwatching.

Was planning on staying for just one night but Steven was honest enough to tell me from his vast knowledge about South Africa that I should change my plans. So I stayed another night to sort out everything, changed my plans completely trusted Steven's advice and in the end had a wonderful trip! So I owe him a lot for all the help and honest advice.

The place its self is of course very good. Comfortable beds, good shower and toilet, nice common area, safe and close to the airport.

Would highly recommend a stay!

Short stay in Jo-burg in Blue Mango Lodge has totally change my impression about South African Hotel Operator, Steve has make me dreaming of going back for another short holiday in Jo burg. Just a call from the porter, Stevie is there to pick you up without any delay. I was surprised when the porter told me that the owner of the blue mango was outside to take me to my hotel because it was around 12midnight.Blue Mango Lodge is really home away from home and Stevie always goes extra mile to satisfy his customer. Immediately i got to my hotel room i was complaining about a Sim card that will allow me to talk to my people back in naija.Before noon, because i have to sleep and rest a little bit. Stevie was right their for me to take me to peep in order to get a Sim card.I will always recommend Blue Mango Lodge to anybody from Nigeria and any other part of the word.What a great experience, kudos to you Stevie.

Room Tip: Room on the south side are quieter.

A perfect solution to being bumped off your flight!
Stevie is wonderful and very efficient. From a late night glass of wine to a delicious, home-cooked meal for lunch.
Really home away from home and he goes the extra mile to ensure that all your needs are met.
Strongly recommend!
