This place was very good. It is right on 5th in Melville (which is a street full of bars, bookstores, restaurants, etc), one of the really nice safe bohemian districts in JBurg. There are two buildings (one each side of 5th ave). The properties are fenced and locked (usual in JBurg). My suite had a separate bedroom and bathroom, and also a living room with sofa, TV, and a mini kitchenette thing with microwave, plates, sink, cutlery etc. Furniture was nice, stylish, everything was very clean. Staff were great, friendly, very obliging, obviously without the polish of a major hotel, but then this isn't Sandton...
Airport pickup was on time and efficient, internet worked well.
My suite was set in a very pretty garden compound. Very peaceful, shady.
Breakfast could have been better. It is served in a french cafe at the end of the block. I ordered an omlette. I didn't finish it because it wasn't that great...It was just OK but kind of was a let down after all the other stuff...
Melville was fun, as always.
