“A Must Try....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

We recently stayed here and we happy not to go anywhere else. The staff are friendly, the place is cosy and comfy. You get privacy in a homely environment. The location is soooo convenient so we could walk in and out with a lot of ease. We'll surely be back. We got good rates, definitely value for money.

I've never written a review on TripAdvisor - but I felt compelled to say something about this place. Louise Terrace Guest House is convenient, super friendly and made my trip to Joburg absolutely enjoyable.

It's a small guest house close to everything worthwhile in Joburg, the prices are reasonable and the rooms are comfortable. To sum it up: it's like being home.

I would reccommend it for its easy access, easy stay and general easy-going feel.

It is a constant delight to come back to Louise Terrace, a place that I personally consider "my only home in Johannesburg and in South Africa in general", and my stay there is always very relax, revitalizing and conducive for my work whenever I am in Johannesburg.
Nicolas, in addition to his amazing customer care, has become more than a host, and his warm hospitality also adds to the home feeling that Louise Terrace welcomes you with.

This time around, for my 4th stay at Louise terrace in the last 2 years, I was happy to see that the place has grown in size and extended.

The highlight of my stay was discovering VINTAGE INDIA, the new restaurant on Louise Terrace premises. The name is very evocative, as the savors and delicacies offered there will surprise you and send you on a delicious and ecstatic gastronomic journey that adds to the already impressive value for money that you feel everyday of your stay at Louise Terrace.

I miss my SA home already, and look forward to coming back.

Until soon,

I was visiting johannesburg for training. My booking at a different hotel got cancelled due to renovation so that hotel made arrangements and booked me into the guesthouse. On first appearance it looked a bit worn out. Garden looked like it was not taken care of in a while and the parking is a bit cramped. The room i was staying in was spacious. Furniture needs to be retouched. Some of it is old, Beds are comfortable. Breakfast was nice but limited in what you can order of the menu. Overall experience was intermediate. Not an experience i would freely opt to have again.

We had a really nice time at this guest house. So conveniently located, lots of attention to detail, and the manager, Brian, was so friendly. He went the extra mile to make us feel at home! I highly recommend it.

I booked my mother into the BnB and she has not stopped raving about how comfortable her stay was. The staff was very friendly and Brian was an amazing host. He even allowed for a later than normal check out at no additional charge. Very clean establishment, tranquil, trendy and homely at the same time. Real value for money. I would strongly recommend the establishment and I will be making use of it in the future.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 April 2014

I stayed 1 night in Room 15. Situated on busy main road next to offices, so there isn't much to look at. I was worried about the noise from the traffic, but it did calm down after 8pm so I was able to have a good night's sleep. Comfortable bed and pillows. Excellent wi-fi connectivity. A hairdryer would be good and a chair with a back, and a comfortable armchair. There was a big crack on the cupboard/mirror. The water from the shower did cause a bit of a puddle on the outside. There was a dressing table with a stool, but this is not good if you have to work on your laptop. Nicholas & Brian were very hospitable. It was quiet in the breakfast room when I left and had a good chat to Nicholas and the 3 cute dogs. For longer stays I would prefer a guesthouse that has a lovely garden to look out to.
