Service not as good as the previous time. Staff not very attentive to small details

With everything you need for an easy and conveniently located Joburg stay for overseas visitors, solo travelers, or just for business. Modern and fuckydesign, good shower, decent breakfast, great wifi and walking distance to lots of great restaurants, if you dont want to go eatout, plenty of takeout delivery services are available. And oh great comfy bed, I sleep like a baby. Host and staff are super friendly and makes my stay comfortable and undisturbed.

Great stay at Motel Mi Pi Chi! Very comfortable and homely, beautifully decorated, warm and friendly staff. Thank you, Motel Mi Pi Chi for an awesome stay in Melville!The only downside was that Safarinow did not send my payment confirmation to the establishment, fortunately I had the confirmation email!

We loved our stay; the design, the décor, the staff, the breakfast and the the room with its little treats are original and fresh. Heated bathroom floor was a gift! Good value for the price.
