    Great location for Melville. Staff excellent, good breakfast.

    Room was basic and very overpriced at around £200 for twin ensuite.

    Fabulous

    Great location (just off 7th avenue's selection of restaurants and bars). The staff were very friendly and the place was easy to find.

    The internet did not connect and it's not free WiFi. Breakfast selection was too small.

    Exceptional

    Rooms are clean and spacious (I was even offered a choice of rooms). Garden is very well kept. Very safe and secure. Literally a one minute walk from 7th Street. After checking out you can leave your baggage and they also let me use the facilities all day. Cooked-to-order breakfast. Jane can also make arrangements for taxis, tours etc. Great place at competitive price!

    Excellent position, safe walking distance from the bars and restaurants on the 7th street. The caretaker ladies are just fantastic!

    Average facilities, the pool is not really actractive and there were ants hanging around the bathroom, the room and occasionally the bed.

    L'emplacement à Melville est idéal (à exactement 30 secondes de la rue la plus animée tout en étant sécurisé, ce qui paraît rare à Joburg).

    Le rapport qualité prix est très mauvais. J'ai payé autant dans cette guest house (750 rand la nuit en chambre double) que je qualifierais de 2 étoiles que dans une guest house 4 étoiles à Cape Town vraiment sympathique et très bien placée. Je remercie cependant les dames en charge de l'acceuil, qui ne semblent pas être les propriétaires, mais ont été tout à fait gentilles. Cela dit, ça fait un peu impersonnel...

    Quartier sans risque de Johannesbourg. bien situé on peut aller à pied dans la rue principale où se situent tous les restaurants et bars avec concerts, ambiance très décontractée et sympathique. Calme et tranquille. Très bon rapport qualité prix, maison très agréable et conviviale. Petite structure, petite salle de petit déjeuner très agréable, parking fermé à disposition. Parfait pour visiter la ville
