We are so happy that we chose this little spot to stay in while in Jo'burg. It was lovely, lots of shops of various tastes, great restaurant choices, and diverse crowds.

We stayed in Melville for a night and had a great time. We went to a few bars and restaurants, we walked around and felt completely safe, even at night. My personal highlight is Pablo Eggs-go-Bar for breakfast or brunch.

My husband and I stayed in Melville in a B & B Lucky Bean and we were most satisfied. Even though it is not a hotel, we would highly recommend this B & B. Transportation was easy with tuk tuk to visit around.
