Welcome to J’s Guesthouse

Centrally located in Fairmount, amongst the pristine suburbs of North Eastern Johannesburg, this breathtaking property strikes the perfect balance of sophistication and elegance, we meet the needs of the discerning corporate or leisure travellers seeking those finer touches or that ‘je ne sais quoi’.

Starting the day off with a warm South African welcome, accompanied by a complimentary assortment of authentic South African breakfast options to choose from will have you ready for anything the day might hold in store.

In room dining:
Don’t feel like joining us in the dining room for breakfast? Perhaps you’d just like to enjoy a quiet breakfast in the privacy and comfort of your own room. We’ve got you covered.

At J’s Guesthouse, our aim is to ensure that all those finer comforts are at your fingertips. We have hot beverage making facilities in each room, or as simple as making a request, you’ll find yourself sipping on a frothy cappuccino, reading the morning paper in no time.

Special dietary requirements:
Rest assured that we can cater to your individual dietary requirements. We do request our guests to inform us before the time in order for us to be completely prepared. With our outsourced catering options, specialised dining requirements such as Kosher can be arranged with ease. We will gladly make the necessary arrangements under the supervision of the Beth Din of Johannesburg, you need look no further. An additional charge applies for Kosher breakfast.

Complimentary and efficient – the best description when it comes to our Wi-Fi. Stay in touch with loved ones, never miss out on that important conference call or simply stay informed with world news.

Daily housekeeping service:
That fresh linen scent you love, at J’s Guesthouse our housekeepers will ensure your room stays in pristine condition throughout your stay, every day from 08:00 up until 17:00, but we don’t just stop there. Our turn down service between 19:00 and 20:00 will have you ready for a night of total rest and relaxation.

Dry cleaning:
A coffee stain on a business suit can be troublesome, especially when you have upcoming events to attend. We’ll take care of that with our same day laundry, dry cleaning and pressing services.

In South Africa, one of the most celebrated to traditions is “braaiing”, known to our counterparts across the globe as “having a barbecue”. It would be a pleasure to host you in our entertainment area, where your host, who knows a thing or two about braaiing will do that for you. Feel like doing it yourself? Let us know! This is your time to unwind, either in our pool with a refreshing beverage or even our Jacuzzi.

All our guests are invited to join us in our entertainment area during their stay, whether you’re making use of the braai, enjoying a sundowner or a cigar after dinner it’s your playground

DSTV (our local satellite TV provider) is available in all bedrooms for latest news, series, movies as well as an array of sports channels to keep you well entertained. 

Need a little bit of quiet time? A reading room is available on the upper floor where you can sit back, relax and catch up on social media or dive into a good book. If you’re feeling competitive, a range of board-games are available for your enjoyment.
