About the place

The host has committed to follow the COVID-19 cleaning protocol issued by misterb&b to offer travelers the greatest level of safety.

This King room (with a King size bed) is part of a newly renovated guesthouse, which is around the corner from Main Road in Melville. The room has air condtioning, DSTV, free WiFi, and tea and coffee making facilities. Close to Campus Square shopping centre, Wits and UJ universities as well as 7th Street with all its distinguished restaurants & pubs. An ideal suburb for all, home to Ratz Bar and Liquid Blue.
This establishment was built in the early 1900's, was originally two separate houses that were called "Semi's" and in 2004 converted into a Guesthouse.
It is a homely house with decent size rooms and a very comfortable patio/Lapa area with a swimming pool area to relax.

Whether you are here on vacation or on a business trip, you are going to enjoy the attention to detail of old-fashioned/modern fusion design interior.
