We chose this hotel from our guide it was a top choice, but we found it very disappointing. The decoration and location are very nice, but that's all. The gate which opens every time someone comes in is very very loud, so we couldn't sleep because of this. Also in the morning the wooden floor makes you hear everything from... More

Motel Mi Pi Chi is a very nice and quiet place. The area is safe and you can go around by night alone for dinner or some drinks. The staff is nice too. Virginia was very helpfull. Don't hesitate to ask the service of Pierre. He is a very nice guide tour who works with the Motel. For a good... More

We stayed at MiPiChi after receiving a recommendation from a friend and It was perfect! Very affordable, secure parking, and 2 blocks from a delicious resto "The Leopard", we couldn't have asked for more!

Stayed for 3 nights. Very comfortable beds and loved the bathroom.Breakfast was continental style with freshly squeezed orange juice. I went on a tour to Soweto which was organised by motel Mi Pi Chi. The guide was great and had good local contacts in Soweto. My only criticism was that I had arranged a transfer from the airport and confirmed... More

We landed from overseas in Johannesburg and were apprehensive about the city and its neighborhoods at first. But when we drove into Melville we had everything we need, shopping centers, banks, supermarkets and restaurants. Walking on the streets at night was a bit scary though (the street-lights were out) but a bunch of nice restaurants are only a few minutes... More

Good location, nice rooms, kind service ... This guesthouse has a very familiar atmosphere. A nice kitchen that can be used at all times and a save parking for your car. Shops are very close and can be reached by foot.

Had a wonderful stay, and enjoyed the clean and very nice room with shower/bathroom next to the small open court yard. One minor thing to perhaps improve: it's not really considered safe/best practice to send CC details (incl. security number) by email or leave it at an unfamiliar website, so felt a bit uncomfortable that i was required to do...

We only stayed 2 nights but we really enjoyed our stay here. We actually stayed across the street from the main building in basically a very large studio apartment. It had a small kitchenette w/oven and fridge. It also had a nice seating area, bedroom area, and the bathroom. Everything was very clean and well decorated; It looked like an... More

We stayed at Mi Pi Chi, located in the Melville section, for 4 days. They provide lots of help, their own airport pickup and tours (the fees are comparable to others from what we see), and a fine breakfast. The price per night is quite reasonable, and there are many good restaurants nearby.

The Mi Pi Chi has nice rooms each one in a different colour. The rest is ok, but not more. They have a car gate next to the room that makes quiet a lot of noise when it gets open and closed, so ask for a room in the middle part. The staff doesn't know much about the activities to... More
