7th Street Guesthouse is an elegant guest house in the heart of Melville. Located in a quiet cul de sac, on the corner of 7th Street and 7th Avenue, at the bottom of 7th Street village and overlooking the Melville Koppies. This beloved bohemian little village in the mids of Johannesburg has recently been voted by TimeOut Worldwide as one of the top 50 suburbs to visit. 7th Street Guesthouse provides home comforts for pilgrims, tourists and business travellers alike. What makes 7th Street a unique experience? It is the outdoor patio, sipping cocktails as the sun dips beneath the Koppies. It is the private entrance and manicured gardens appointed to most of our rooms, that is such a welcome change for the frequent flyer. It is the vibrant common-room at night and the personal attention that every one of our guests deserves… It is the pulsing night-life, just a few blocks away, and the small bespoke bookshops and bakeries housed in the National Heritage buildings that make up the central village of Melville.
