Awful from beginning to end. This is no boutique hotel. It is falsely presented. It is simply and honestly a pretty backpackers. It is a converted house. There is no privacy. Rooms are centimetres apart. My own assigned room was behind the reception desk. You could not sneeze without the whole house knowing. The bathroom was minute. And if you... More

I am simply enchanted by this little gem. Arriving late at night, I encountered a friendly reception and luggage carried to my room. Here waited a comfortable bed with crispy white linen and blasts of orange in the decor items. Loved the colorful tub chair and artwork. Reveled in the huge bathroom with trendy finishes and spacious shower - and... More

Staff at the Mi Pi Chi went out of their way to be helpful to us. We loved nearby 7th Street. The guest house has made interesting use of available space.This was really good value for money. Close to trendy 44 Stanley.

Staff was very friendly and helpful (especially Virginia). We stayed at the self catering rooms across the street. Room was huge, clean, and the bed was very comfortable. Location was excellent - walking distance to many restaurants in Mellville. Only downside is that's it's down the street from an adult video store.

Nice place, carefully decorated. Funny notes, color coordination in the rooms. However, basic care to customer seems to be a little bit left apart: arriving on a saturday afternoon for 1 night, nobody at reception. No answer from the phone contacts given in the booking details (such calls have a significant cost for non-SA residents ...), no one answering the... More

Motel Mi Pi Chi was a great place to stay in Jo'Burg. The staff were incredibly helpful, the room was posh but comfortable (very spacious and well-decorated), the entire venue was cozy, and the motel was well-situated in the city.

The motel was beautiful and modern. The bathroom was almost in a private courtyard, encased in glass. Contemporary, pretty. The staff were super helpful. The location couldn't have been better for my needs. The neighborhood felt safe. The wifi worked & the breakfast was good. I wanted to move in.
