Amongst the many guesthouses tried in Johannesburg, The Leaves stands out head and shoulders against every other that I have tried in the last 5+ years travelling to Johannesburg. Not only is it conveniently located (with easy access to Rivonia/Sandton as well as the N1 highway), the surroundings - with its garden-like feel offers the weary business traveller a peaceful and safe environment. The rooms are exceptionally decorated with what can only be described as the very best. The real difference is in the small touches; from individually wrapped soaps, wooden ladled bath salt dispensers, bamboo ladder-like towel rails, large fluffy towels and personalised inspirational messages in each room. The rooms all have satellite TV, wireless Internet, personal bar and aircon and in winter months are warm and pleasant. The complimentary Sherry is a winner! The highlight for me has got to be the breakfasts. Sue is a gifted cook and each breakfast is a gourmet treat. Fresh juices and filter coffees are complimented by daily newspapers and the warmth and care of Sue and her friendly employees. Highly recommended!
