Motel Mi Pi Chi

Top choice guest house in Johannesburg

Book ahead for this gem of a place. The design duo behind Motel Mipichi have transformed several semidetached 1930s abodes along the street into a genuine alternative to the traditional Melville guesthouse experience. It's a minimalist delight, offering a total of 15 calming rooms speckled with pastel splotches and showers that open onto private courtyards.

In the main house the open-plan kitchen and living area, partly decorated with original Portuguese tiles, is an ideal place to decompress.
