Hello, my girlfriend and I will be spending 2 nights in Jo'burg this January before flying back to London. We were hoping to stay some where 1) lively and walkable 2) safe and clean
I had originally thought Melville would be the place to stay, but some posts suggest it has become grimey and only suitable for the early 20's student crowd.
Sandton seems stale and far away. What areas would combine the best of both? Looking for a neighborhood we can walk around between shops, restaurants, cafes and enjoy a bit of nightlife as well? I realize that Jo'burg is a very car dependent city but was hoping there was something that would fit the bill. If not, then Sandton it will be.
