Very comfortable room with nice bath and shower, adjoining garden with tables & chairs in the sun is good. Friendly, professional service and a great breakfast. Only minus is no drawers or shelves anywhere to put clothes, so have to use suitcase.

It's a lovely and clean boutique guesthouse with comfortable beds, eclectic furniture and friendly staff. It's conveniently situated near 7th street where you can find many bars, restaurants and shops.

84 on 4th makes travel easy. From the staff helpfulness (they got our breakfast 30min earlier than the usual time due to our early flights on a Sunday); clean and thoughtfully decorated rooms and common spaces; ease of booking and communications, and close proximity to Melville's cafes , yet quiet surrounds, made this guesthouse a welcome retreat from a busy...

84 on Fourth provided excellent service. Very friendly and helpful staff. The room was great and the interior patio was wonderfully quiet and well designed with an artistic flare. Melville is a great spot to base in Joburg with great restaurants and small neighborhood feel. Easy to Über wherever you need to go.

Good environment and very friendly staff especially the one Neli who was the receptionist on the day of arrival and departure.However i suggest your housekeeping staff make sure to refill the toiletries and ensure that there is hot water. There was a day i bathed cold water and for two days no soap was provided,otherwise i dont mind coming back.
