        An excellent value designer boutique hotel in Melville. I loved the design of the rooms and the glass and concrete bathroom looking out to a small private courtyard. Nice big comfortable beds with thick fluffy duvets and pillows. Wooden floors and little touches like DSTV, pencils & rulers, free WiFi room safe and mini bar & wine in the room. Breakfast was pleasent with fresh cooked boiled eggs, pastries, toast & cerials with plunger coffee.

        THe hotel is lovely but: The area isnt great but everything is an easy drive. Other guests were noisy disturbing my sleep in the night and also early in the morning. Seemed to be a lot of dragging/banging on wodden floors. Could do with a curtain/blind to the bathroom to block out more light from the bedroom.

        Located the quite and eclectic suburb of Melville, MMPC is a total delight for a city stay or as a home base for a longer vacation. The staff is friendly and attentive without being overbearing (which can happen in a small guest house). The space itself if beautifully designed, bright and airy, with luxuriously appointed rooms.The location is totally secure and there is usually a friendly security guard at the front door happy to walk you to a near by bar or restaurant and walk you back if needed. The staff is happy to make additional transportation arrangements for you if needed. This is a wonderful guest house. Looking forward to returning soon.

        Safety is a concern when traveling ANYWHERE in the world, you are in unfamiliar territory and there are always going to be individuals that will want to target tourists. That said, some neighborhoods are more dangerous than others, I am not an expert on Joberg but Melville seems safer than many. Mi Pi Chi will offer to send someone with you when you walk to destination in Melville, do take them up on it if you do not know exactly where you are going. Not really a negative on the MMPC but something visitors should be aware of, do not let others dissuade you from staying somewhere other than Sandton.

        1. Breakfast. 2. Breakfast. Seriously, it is excellent. 3. Floor heating in the bathroom. It was winter so it was a great feature. 4. Location in Melville is good. 5. Very clean.

        1. Unfortunately the owner wasn't there and it was difficult to obtain any tourist information from the other staff.

        Motel Mi Pi Chi was more than a place to stay. It was a well designed home. It was more than comfortable and clean. People were as kind and helpful as family. Had a nice time in J'burg with you and already missed all of you: Nicky, Virginia, Toomie and Chuck plus others whose names did not stick in my mind

        Everything about the stay could not have been better. The service was second to none, the place was well-designed from to to bottom, and you can't beat it for the money. Utterly happy- this is how a hotel should be run.

        Design and quality of room itself.

      • Single
        7.0

        The room was clean and the WIFI was free (when it was working). The staff is very friendly and the place has its own charm, if one prefers a guest house / (upmarket) youth hostel kind of feeling.

        Gate motor was very loud and can disturb during the night or early morning. Privacy is a bit limited since the door leads directly to the lounge / breakfast area and is not very sound proof. The bathroom is very bare and small. Unfortunately there is no hair dryer available in the room and limited space for clothes. The minibar prices were only available on request.

        The rooms, especially the bathrooms overlooking the tiny courtyard area were beautiful. The staff were very helpful, the continental breakfast was quite nice. We felt right at home.

        Hotel staff is lovely and attentive. Breaksfast is low fat and delicious. Indeed, the atmosphere is familiar and it was possible to meet new people. Near from Mi Pi Chi is located malls and restaurants with several options.
