I really appreciated the hosts' hospitality. Our stay was short, but it was easy to check-in after arriving from the airport. The location is walking-distance from shops and bars, so it was easy to unwind after the flight.

Mi Pi Chi has nice town houses in one of the best neighbourhoods of Jo’burg. The staff is very friendly and helps you to find your way in this vibrant city. There are several nice bars and restaurants in the direct surrounding.

We stayed at Melville just for one night, before catch flight at Johannesburg. Beautiful accommodation. Room was very nice and very clean. Very good breakfast! Melville by night is very cool with a lot of restaurant, bar, etc..

You can use uber to get around. The BB is closer to some great restaurants. I was there only for a night and didn't look for a shopping mall or groceries.

Yes they are very accommodating. Just tell them when you book and I'm sure they will be able to arrange for you.
