We choose this place because of the good valoration. It has been a deception. We booked three nights. The bathroom is tiny and we had to ask for towels, toilet paiper and soap. The same with breakfast. The electric exterior door was really noisy and we have many problems with wifi. It is not a bad place, but I think...

I booked this room for location and unique charm .It's close to downtown and near a Gautrain station, but not actually in downtown Johannesburg. As a first time traveler I felt a little safer near the university (it's about 3 blocks away) and it worked out really well. We stayed for one night between flights and our luggage was lost....

I stayed here for one night stop over and was pleasantly surprised by how nice this place was. As the room I had booked was I occupied I got a nicer room. Very modern and after flying for 40 hours I had the best sleep inspite of thundering during the night. For more details and photos read voyagerjdotcom.

I booked here last minute and enjoyed my stay. The room I had was large and clean with a nice bathroom. It was a bit loud with street noise, however, but acceptable. Popular restaurant and stores in Melville are a quick walk away, including my favorite restaurant in the area, The Leopard. Good value for money.

This is a wonderful little place. I massively enjoyed my three night stay. The rooms are light big and spacious. I loved the idea and decor of the bathroom and shower. The breakfast buffet is a great way to start the morning. Generally there is a relaxed, friendly familiar atmosphere, and Virginia and the rest of the staff are top...

The motel was chosen for its position because we wanted to stay in a quiet district in Johannesburg where possibly not to use the car for every move we would have made, and we got exactly what we wanted. The business seems family ruled, and the people of the staff were friendly and helpful in providing advises on the surroundings...
