Zietsies in Johannesburg

Zietsies has arguably one of the best views in the City of Gold. Situated on the highest ‘koppie’ in Johannesburg (in the suburb of Auckland Park), the view stretches over the North of the city all the way to the Magaliesburg, 70 km away. During the day you have the greenery of the city’s seven million trees at your feet and at night, a fairyland of lights.

The guest house has three beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms and a loft suite, each with a design and character of its own.The dining room has been built with glass and steel, creating a ‘conservatory-feel’. The dining room can seat up to 30 people and is ideal for small conferences, with convenient plug points and white board. Breakfast is included in the price of the rooms and dinner is served on request, with the owner being well-known for her skills in the kitchen. Please note: there are no televisions in our bedrooms, but we do have an extensive library for your reading pleasure, and who wants to watch television in any case when you could rather sit on the deck with a drink in your hand and watch the twinkling lights of Joburg?

Auckland Park is right next to the suburb of Melville with its restaurants, bars and second-hand book shops. We can provide you with a driver should you feel like a night on the town. We are also in very close proximity to Wits University, University of Johnannesburg (RAU), SABC, Milpark and Garden City Hospitals.

Zietsies Guest House is a comfortable and relaxing inn away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. The rooms are clean and have a lot of nice amenities like French press coffee and little baked goods in the room. The views from the dining area and my room (cant speak to the other rooms) are spectacular - they look out over the hills. Plus, the breakfasts are superb.

Had a lovely stay here with two colleagues from the University of Cape Town. Wonderful food and great views of the city. Really enjoyed the drinks and the free WiFi, a great place to work during the day. Highly recommend if you like comfort and eclecticism.

Vastly more pretentious than it can sustain. The food started out ok and quickly converged on average.

Delightful guesthouse with very personal touches. Breakfast is always a surprise and you must say if you need dinner ahead of the time. You usually don't have a choice, which can be nice unless you're very picky about what you eat.

review by Charlene Rolls


Excellent and unique. Beautiful rooms, friendly staff and a fabulous view of Johannesburg. We will definitely go back.

review by Katherine Moore, South Africa

"The best!"

The best treat I had in a very long time! It was a priviledge to meet Elzabe - she's one of a kind, down to earth, has a fantastic personality and a very good sense of humour. I really enjoyed her, she's a ball of energy and an inspiration. The food was divine. Beautifully decorated and I will go back for some more special visits. Thanks once again, Zietsies!
