Click here to be the first to review 33 Melville Road

An exclusive private hotel in the opulent Johannesburg suburb of Hyde Park, 33 Melville Road is a rambling mansion on the exterior with a surprisingly offbeat elegance throughout the interiors. The uniquely eclectic style incorporates color, texture and whimsy, both vintage and modern, in playful and unusual decor. It's this charming combination of class and whimsy that makes 33 Melville Road such an appealing home.

The Hotel

Location: Johannesburg, South Africa
Number of Rooms: 3

Renovated in 2007 and decorated by the talented owner whose free-flowing, vibrant energy permeates every room, 33 Melville is all about the creation of visual surprise. Three luxurious suites each have a private en-suite bathroom, walk-in closet and digital satellite TV. The Black & Yellow Room, strikingly contemporary, overlooks the front garden brimming with hydrangeas and agapanthas. The more traditional Rose Room overlooks the rose garden, while the sunny, vibrant Victoria’s Room is most playful of all, blending bright colors like a modern art collage. The kitchen, where decadent gourmet breakfasts are prepared, is welcoming, spacious and sunny. Massive wooden doors open onto an expansive patio overlooking the gardens and Johannesburg skyline. Meals are designed by the executive chef-in-residence to suit individual guests' tastes and preferences. Lounging by the pool, playing a game of tennis or relaxing with a movie, you will feel as comfortable as if this were your own South African home.
