Rustigheid in 'n stadsgewoel.

Ten volle toegerus vir beurtkrag, baie privaat en uitstekende gashere.

Comfortable.

I was welcomed with a big smile that made me feel at home immediately. The area is tranquil. The unit was clean and neat.

Gemaklikheid.

Ek was ontvang met 'n groot glimlag wat my dadelik gemaklik laat voel het. Die area is rustig. En die unit was skoon en netjies.

Place is friendly and quiet.

Let them level the path between next door wall and the house moving towards room 2 from the laundry. I tripped and fell hard on my right shoulder and had to seek for medical attention.

A home away from home - definitely a place to stay at again when in Jhb.

Six days spent at Alexander's House, was the perfect place for me. The fine touches in the room was evident that this place is a labour of love, guests are valued and not simply "another number". The owners Stefan and Elsolet were also very kind and accommodating. Five stars, and a big thank you to them!

Alexander's House's response

What a beautiful and heartfelt review. Thank you so much. We embarked on this journey less than a year ago and it is guests like yourself that makes it all worthwhile.
Much love and appreciation.

Satisfactory.

Good accommodation, but there should be more chairs and dishwashing facilities. Good quality beds, and security is a plus. DStv would also improve the experience.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Bevredigend.

Verblyf is goed, maar meer sitplekke beskikbaar maak en ook wasbak/fasiliteit om skottelgoed te was. Beddens van goeie gehalte en veiligheid definitief 'n pluspunt. DStv-kanale sal ook verblyf meer waarde gee.

Absolutely ideal for to people who are comfortable in each other's company irrespective of gender.

The area is quiet and you feel safe and secure. Absolutely adequate accommodation for our purposes. Equipped with all the facilities we needed. The TV didn't have great reception though, but it didn't bother us. Good value for you money!

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Absoluut ideaal vir twee mense wat ongeag geslag gemaklik in mekaar se teenwoordigheid is.

Die omgewing is stil en daar is 'n gevoel van sekuriteit en veiligheid. Die akkommodasie was absoluut voldoende vir ons doel. Alle nodige geriewe was daar. Die televisie se opvangs was nie van die beste nie, maar dit het nie gepla nie. Waarde vir geld!

Dit was baie aangenaam en waarde vir geld staan uit.

Die gastehuis eienaars was uiters vriendelik en behulpsaam. Baie skoon linne en verblyf. Uiters goeie waarde vir geld en sal dit so ook aanbeveel. Lekker om met ons mense te kan gesels in ons eie taal.

It wasn't the same place as the pics.

The mattresses in the room is very old and tired. The pics and what the place looks like in real life is not the same. The walls and the bathroom should be revamped. Very old. I won't stay there again.

This review has been translated,click hereto view the original version.

Dit was nie dieselfde plek wat op die foto's was nie.

Die kamer se matrasse is baie oud en deurgelê. Die foto's van hoe die kamer lyk en hoe die kamer werklik is stem nie ooreen nie. Die mure en badkamer kan gerus oorgedoen word. Baie oud. Ek sal nie weer daar bly nie.

Alexander's House's response

Beste Jurgens,

Baie dankie vir die resensie, ons neem ag van die kommentaar gelewer.

Ons verkies dat inboektye streng nagekom moet word, tensy ander reëlings met die eienaar getref is. U het by Alexander’s House ongeveer 15:30 ingeboek alhoewel inboektye eers vanaf 16:00 is.

In die prys van R250 per persoon per nag, wat in ons opinie 'n baie bilike tarief is, is daaglikse, gratis skoonmaakdienste, groot hoeveelhede skoon handdoeke vir elke persoon netjies neergesit met individuele sepies, die lekkerruik-handewasseep en -handeroom in die badkamer, die nuwe, dik winterkomberse en beddegoed asook die heerlike Mocha Cuppuccino en Vanilla-beskuitjies van Woolworths, ingesluit.

Ons hoop u kry in die toekoms iet smeer geskik vir u voorkeure en smaak.

Warm groete,
Elsolet Joubert

Beste Frans

Baie dankie vir jou resensie. Ons het geweldige probleme met julle vorige gas tydens sy verblyf gehad. Hy het 'n ekstra gas in die eenheid, wat slegs vir hom bespreek was, laat slaap. Dit nadat ek vir hom van ons reëls bewus gemaak het en dit nadat hy ook belowe het om die reëls na te kom. Ons kan nie vreemdelinge sonder, enige reëlings, toelaat op die erf nie aangesien dit vele aspekte, maar veral ook die veiligheid van die ander gaste op die erf raak.

Ek is seker julle sal in die toekoms iewers elders kan bly waar die akkommodasie meer buigsaam is rondom hierdie spesifieke reëls.

Vriendelike groete
Elsolet

We are in the process of moving to Kenya. With one foot still in SA and our lives packed up in 6 crates, Elsolet made us feel welcome. If we're in JHB again, this is where I'll stay!
