The Fire and Ice Melrose Arch is one of the most well situated hotels in Johannesburg that won't break the bank, has a free shuttle service for guests between the gautrain station and the hotel and milkshakes that make you feel like a child again.
Located in the Melrose Arch business precinct, it's literally a walk across the street to an array of restaurants, boutiques and shops, which includes an iStore, so ample opportunity for one to have a shop!
The hotel also has a very popular outside chill area, bar and pool; it's not uncommon to see people enjoying the warm summer evenings outside with a drink and friends.
The Fire and Ice is well know by locals for their amazing array of milkshakes; Oreo, chocolate, etc. too many to remember or mention, so if you love milkshakes, you can't go wrong!!
The room we stayed in was awesome...the interior was slick and well designed. The bed was comfy with more than enough pillows. Our room had a window overlooking the pool area, which was great. We opened the window during the evening and we're woken the next morning by a Robin singing his beautiful melody!
We had toilet, shower and basin which were clean and well stocked.
Breakfast the following morning was superb! They catered for all our needs as part of their breakfast buffet; cereals, fry-up, etc. there wasn't anything we couldn't have.
Overall, I'd say that you'd be doing yourself a favour staying at the Fire and Ice. For the price that you're paying, it truly is great value for money and I highly recommend it!
