The guest house is in Melville, s Johannesburg nearby suburb, with lots of restaurants with a couple blocks. Rooms are comfortable, breakfast is good, staff is wonderful. While it's not right downtown, it's a great neighborhood and the greater city is very accessible.

The bed was ok but the bathroom was a little, let's say, old? Some black must at the silicon rubber but also that's usual after a while if it isn't cleaned and dried properly....

melville is a nice place, safe and not too far from the city center; the venue is nice, rooms are well equipped, the breakfast is good, the staff will help you to find a transfer to/from the airport or the museum and the 7th street with nice restaurants is at a short walking distance.

The area is very safe, and the offer convenient airport transfer through a very...
