        MELVILLE'S BEST KEPT SECRET”

        WOW!!!! Absolutely THE MOST STUNNING Hotel/Guest House in GAUTENG!!! Woke up to the most incredible view. Breakfast was so deliciously tasty & huge portions (they definitely NOT shy with their helpings) - freshly squeezed orange juice! The venue is so beautiful with a stunning view, the 'home-away-from-home' hospitality you don't want to leave! We forgot some belongings when we left and they called to let us know (that doesn't happen these days) !!! Hands down FIRST CLASS - Excellent +++10 rating!!!

        Great base for Joburg ”

        We stayed twice in Pablo House during our trip to SA as we had transit through Joburg to other destinations. Pablo House is a great base and offers comfort and tranquility in the midst of a hectic city. Owners were very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast down the road at Pablo Eggs Bar was delicious and efficient. We felt very safe, security was always in the door. Highly recommend!

        Nice place in cute neighborhood w great views and restaurant”

        Staff was super friendly, rooms were nice, beds comfy (w heated blankets on the cold winter nights), breakfast excellent, nice restaurant and, as a solo traveler, they brought food from the restaurant to my room for the evening when the restaurant was busy, which was very nice. Also if you are a runner, it's a pretty easy run to the botanical gardens which is nice.

        The Pablo House staff went above and beyond to make sure we felt welcomed and taken care of. In particular, they let us store our bags until our evening flight and even let us use an available room to freshen up before our flight. The hotel has such a cool vibe and amazing views and we also really enjoyed our dinner at Dos Manos. Next time we're in Joburg, we'll definitely stay here again!

        Pablo House is near to my actual home but I’ve visited the restaurant on several occasions and loved it! You feel like you are in a different country. My stay was amazing and I enjoyed the peace and quiet - very relaxing!
