Had a really nice stay at the Mi Pi Chi which is in the Melville area of Johannesburg. Check in was swift and our room was lovely.

Great accommodation, which has so much more character than a hotel. We shared a two bedroom apartment, which was clean and very spacious. The motel is also located in an awesome area, close to lots of restaurants.

This place was very affordable for the level of quality and its location in Melville. Security is a concern in this area so it was nice to be in a secure place. Our room had a really cool bathroom that blended into the outdoors. Clean, solid service, good location -- can't say anything bad about it.
