Staying is more than just a safe roof over. Its less of ' here is your key have a nice day', to actually MAKING YOUR DAY, when you check in. That's what I call an engaging approach.. 84 offers this and much besides, which includes the chance to get out onto the sidewalk in the area. I have no hesitation... More

Brilliant staff, brilliant value for money, excellent position, great breakfasts, and seriously, A+ on all fronts. We made a lot of changes and the staff could not have been more accommodating. Easy to walk to all restaurants in the area, great coffee just around the corner, fab decor, just divine.

Interesting location with a vibrant mix of cultures OK to walk about without feeling threatened. The guest house itself is a bit like the curates egg , good in parts.

Dearest ROBINONorwich, Many thanks for taking the time to review us! Getting your feedback is central to our growth. I believe you stayed in the compact room, which is our budget room aimed at the price savvy traveler.

84 on Fourth was a lovely, relaxing B&B/guest house. The area is attractive and walkable, with lots of restaurants and bars nearby. My room was very quiet and there was a lovely patio outside where I could drink my tea in the a.m. The weather was excellent--late Oct. The owner/host was fabulous and I wish I had had more time...

We had a pleasant stay at this guesthouse. Nice garden, very friendly and helpful staff and a decent room (room no. 2). 7th Street is right around the corner where you can find nice restaurants for dinner.

Excellent location in a safe neighbourhood round the corner from lots of restaurants. The house has plenty of communal space to hang out indoors and out. The large bedroom was positively luxurious. Zorana, Neli and their colleagues were most welcoming and helpful.

Rude receptionist, room without air conditioning, very early checkout and they charge you extra 250 zar if you checkout from 11am, no consideration to the clients. Resuming not a good experience for somebody who is traveling for relaxation and not in a hurry mood.
