84 on Fourth is an oasis in Johannesburg with its pretty rooms and the wonderful garden. The staff is very friendly and caring and they help you organize cool trips in and around Joburg. The neighborhood is safe and a fun street with bars and restaurants is just around the corner. I already recommended this place to my friends visiting...

Really enjoyed my stay at 84th. The location is fantastic, one minute away from the main bar and restaurant scene in Melville. Service was excellent, particularly Jennifer the front of house. Also really appreciated the extra attention to detail paid at 84th, from complimentary sherry in the room to the organic eggs in the morning. Highly recommend.

Dearest nobsero, Many thanks for taking the time to review us. I am truly sorry that you did not receive our usual high standard of service.

Over priced for what you get no proper shower there was more than enough room in the bathroom to have one fitted. Being summer it was extreamly hot and no aircon or overhead fan the room was very clean and and comfortable. Otherwise the welcoming lady at the reception was very professional.

The welcome sherry in your room is a decadent luxury. Located in the heart of the action, great restaurants and culinary delights, incredible value for money considering location and comfort level... highly recommended.

Very nice B&B in Melville. Close to restaurants and safe neighborhood. Jennifer was our host and she was awesome - went out of the way to make us feel comfortable and welcome. Breakfast normally starts at 7am, but our safari tour guide was going to pick us up at 6.30am. Jennifer made sure we had a full breakfast spread ready...
