I stayed at the Blu Trea for one week (I was in Jo'burg on academic business) and could not have asked for anything more. The room was fantastic--creatively decorated with a very comfortable bed, private bathroom, TV, microwave and fridge--and the property is simply beautiful. The breakfast is very tasty (you can get a hot breakfast if you want, but... More

Great rooms, great food, and great host! It's a small place in a beautiful neighborhood, and for a great price. For those of you who run,there's a beautiful park less than a mile away. I really enjoyed my stay.

It is a quiet atmosphere, proximity to shopping store and excellent restaurants, Natasja and the staff took care of our ever needs and breakfast was very well prepared and they really know how to make you feel welcome. The rooms are spotless and comfortable, so come on in and discover this secret place.
