OUR MISSION AND FACILITIES

We pride ourselves on providing friendly and tailor-made services for all of our guests. We love our city and community and we feel privileged that we get to cater a stay for you that will leave you feeling the same way.

We have 8 unique rooms ranging from a family suite to a comfy compact room to suit the needs of all of our travelers. Each room has its own private entrance with a flat-screen TV and DSTV, fridge, tea/coffee facilities, en-suite bathroom and free fibre wi-fi. Some of our rooms even have their own secluded courtyards and clawfoot tubs!

Our delicious breakfast will start your day off right. Your first course is a seasonal fruit salad, yogurt and various cereals and your second course is your choice of four freshly made hot menu items, including our famous 84 Full Breakfast (eggs your way, bacon, sauteed mushrooms, grilled tomato and baked beans). We proudly procure our eggs from New Dawn Poultry - locally produced with no added hormones and humanely treated.

We’re always happy to provide you with the perfect itinerary to make your stay in Johannesburg memorable and unique. We create tours that are specifically fitted to help you tap into the aspects of this city that interest you the most.


OUR LOCATION

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.


OUR TEAM

Zorana

Hello lovely guests! I’m the owner of 84 on Fourth.

This is a bit of a giveaway but I’m new to the hospitality game. Until recently my career has been dedicated to working in the human rights sector. Straddling the world of development and hospitality may seem like a bit of stretch, but it makes perfect sense to me since both are centered on an appreciation for contributing to human happiness.

I’ve moved around a bit - I was born in Serbia, grew up in Canada, studied in the UK and eventually settled in South Africa. I really love Johannesburg, and that has been a major motivation behind our ethos at 84 on Fourth. I love the fact that we get to assist in shaping your experience of this unique and vibrant city, and that we get to make you feel like you’re at home in the process.

I have a degree in Tourism Management from the University of Johannesburg. I love this industry because it gives us a chance to leave a person feeling happy. I want to show all of our guests the beautiful side of our country and I believe this industry provides the perfect platform to do this.

I love music and I always have a tune playing in my head. I enjoy social media because it exposes me to different people. I love ALL forms of art, from painting, dance, fashion and poetry, so in my spare time I am always hunting for something creative.

I cannot wait to meet YOU!

I work in Housekeeping at 84 on Fourth, and I’ve been working in the hospitality industry since 2010.

I’m currently a part-time student and when I’m not studying or working I enjoy spending time with my girls. In the rest of my spare time I like shopping, cleaning and working in my garden where I grow fresh vegetables.

I love hospitality because you get to meet different people and learn different ways of life, and I also enjoy customer service.

I’m Jenny, and I’m a Guest-Service Agent at 84 on Fourth.
