Melville is the most central base for visiting Joburg. Its central location makes it easy to access Soweto, The Apartheid Museum, Braamfontein, Maboneng, the Red Hop-on Hop-off Bus, The Cradle of Humankind, Rosebank and Sandton.
We are also close to University of Johannesburg, Wits University, Parklane Clinic and the Donald Gordon Medical Centre.
We are perfectly positioned for visiting all of those places, and you have a selection of good restaurants, coffee shops and bars close by on 7th Street. The ideal Joburg visit is 2 or 3 days long, to allow you to truly experience how diverse and exciting the city is. Speak to us, we are happy to share!
