This was my first visit to S Africa. My stay here contributed to the wonderful feeling I have for the country and its people. The accommodations are reasonable and clean. The location is close to buses, trains, taxis and tuktuks. But the staff is excellent. The manager was always happy to assist with everything. I will never know another place... More

I had a very good experience staying at Hotel Mi Pi CHi. I was up in Jhb for business in the city center. The commute was only 20 minutes (almost no traffic to speak of). The service was also very good and Virginia is always there to assist. There is quite a bit of road noise from cars though. This... More

This accommodation was clean and well situated. Melville is a great area with plenty of good restaurants close by. The self contained accommodation is very large - so large we barely used the separate lounge area. Breakfast is adequate but probably lets the rest of the accommodation down a little. We would be happy to stay here again if we... More

A nice place to be. The lodge looks a bit old but is very comfortable and very clean. The night watchman is very friendly and very professionnal. The location is good and easy to find. That was our first night in South Africa.

Pickup arranged via the hotel was on time but pricey at XXX. We had an appartment next door to the main building which was spacious and clean but a little cold. Heaters were provided on the bedroom though and with the door closed it did warm up.  The area seemed safe enough but as we where only there for one... More

The hotel is very clean, stylish and comfortable, and the staff is incredibly nice and helpful. However it is not adapted for winter, as rooms and the breakfast area are not well insulated or heated, so I felt cold all the time except when in bed under many layers of blankets. This place would be absolutely perfect for summer though!

We had a very pleasant stay at the hotel. Open minded atmosphere, nicely decorated room, secured parking spot, fine self serving breakfast. Just perfect. Whenever we have the chance we certainly come back.

Host was efficient with our meet & greet even though we were early. Spacious two bed room two bathroom flat. Only had one night but would have stayed longer. Certainly in the hub of town and places to go .
