Certificate of Excellence
33 On First Guesthouse is located in 1st Avenue close to Main Road in Melville. Whether you are here on vacation or on a business trip, you are going to enjoy the attention to detail of old fashioned/modern fusion design interior. The dining room is where you can start your day with a good English breakfast (Choices available) as well as a choice of cereals, muesli, yogurts and fresh fruit. Relax in the cozy lounge and meet other interesting people from across South Africa and around the world. You will also get advice on which trendy Melville spot is that perfect place to have dinner or where to go sight-seeing. Situated a stone's throw from the Bohemian suburb of Melville's famous 7th Street with its vibe atmosphere, pavement cafes, cozy restaurants, antique/vintage stores and cocktail clubs, we are in the perfect location to explore Johannesburg at day or at night. We would love to meet people from all over the world and especially Africa. Our focus is entirely on guest satisfaction but also with a twist, we want you to experience home away from home. We will not be in your space unless you request to have company to show you around our beautiful town.
