Located in bohemian Melville, this boutique guest house has amazing accommodation at fantastic rates. We pride ourselves on providing superior friendly service, delicious breakfasts to start your day off right and we're always happy to provide you with the perfect itinerary to make your stay in Johannesburg memorable and unique. We are located in the heart of Melville, just a few steps away from some of Joburg's favourite restaurants, bars, cafes, vintage stores and the hip retail park 27 Boxes is just a stroll away. Our location is favoured by those wishing to be close to the University of Witwatersrand, University of Johannesburg, the Central Business District and the South African Broadcasting Corporation. For the nature lovers, just a few blocks away is the historic Melville Koppies, a nature reserve to countless bird and plant species, offering its visitors many footpaths for hiking that provide unrivalled views of the city.

Overall very happy with the stay though just one night its hard to draw meaningful conclusions! Just a couple of things....no soap in bathroom (two shampoos and a body lotion), and no teaspoon to stir the sugar in my tea.

I stayed there for both Xmas and New Years(visiting from Texas) and this place rocks! Excellent views of the city, and you should bring your sneakers as you can get some good exercise in just walking the streets....

Not sure about the check-time, but I'm sure they'll accommodate you. They have a tour guide that will take you to Soweto and the Apartheid museum, which is amazing so you should definitely give yourself a lot of time for that museum. 84 on 4th is an amazing place, so you should definitely stay there.
