Melville is a bohemian neighbourhood located in the Northern Suburbs of Johannesburg.  Its artsy reputation is a reflection of its community; a mix of university students and academics,  artists, media professionals and rights activists.

The University of Witwatersrand, University of Johannesburg, the Central Business District, the South African Broadcasting Corporation, Garden City Clinic and Milpark Hospital are all within 10 minutes from Melville and 84 on Fourth Guest House. It's one of the few neighbourhoods in the Northern Suburbs that is situated in a community lined with local shops, restaurants and nightlife rather than the more modern shopping malls. Just a few steps from 84 on Fourth and you'll be on 7th Avenue, with some of Joburg’s favourite restaurants, bars, cafes, specialty bookstores, vintage stores and the hip retail park 27 Boxes.

For the nature lovers just a few blocks away is the historic Melville Koppies, a nature reserve to countless bird and plant species, offering its visitors many footpaths for hiking that provide unrivaled views of the city.

Melville is a perfect home base for touring all of the local historical attractions, including the Constitutional Court,  Apartheid Museum, Soweto, Maboneng Precinct, the Botanical Gardens and the Zoo.
