Johannesburg is fast becoming a thriving metropolis. It's a stopover, drive through and even final destination for many parties. The city of gold plays host to many events and functions, both on a local and international platform. So! Where does someone put their head down to rest, yet without compromising local activities and nearby sights for that matter? A cosmopolitan bed and breakfast accommodation industry has blossomed around Johannesburg to support the growing demand for 'comfy travel accommodation'.

It has become possible to choose your location rather strategically within the city or on the periphery. Whatever the reason for your visit to Johannesburg you simply must make time to see this city which has become renowned for more than one reason. The city has become a stopover en route to the popular Kruger National Park and the magnificent Victoria Falls across the border. There are several safari destinations in all the major directions around Johannesburg so the city has become a well-recognized meeting point for holidaying parties. Johannesburg is a great holiday destination all on its own merits, with the best in bed and breakfast accommodation on offer.

When looking at a map of Johannesburg, it's easy to note the various suburbs and their accessibility advantages to and around the city and its many attractions. Depending how well you know the city, one of the places that's hard to miss is Melville. Situated right near the main highway Melville has acquired a reputation of sorts through the years. Melville is a quaint upmarket suburb transforming into perhaps one the most cosmopolitan places in Johannesburg. It boasts the finest selection of restaurants, theatres, shopping boutiques, and bed and breakfast accommodation.

Melville is easy to find if you're driving from the O.R. Tambo international airport. Aside from having quite a bit to offer itself, it is a short distance from the Johannesburg Botanical Gardens and the Johannesburg Zoo. There are several good golf courses also rather close by. The Houghton Golf Club and Killarney Country Club are amongst the best courses and golfing greens in Johannesburg.

The bed and breakfast accommodation itself is also your best source of information. With the University of Johannesburg and the University of Witwatersrand in close proximity Melville has a youthful energy and vibe about it. Melville is different in that most of the suburbs in Johannesburg have enclosed malls, whereas Melville is made popular by the cafes, shops and restaurants that line the streets. One of the most famous streets in Gauteng is 7th Street in Melville which boasts a number of the trendiest restaurants.

The old and new come together beautifully in this eclectic mix of commercial and residential properties. Some of Melville's homes date all the way back to the early 19th century and have been converted into exquisite bed and breakfast accommodation. A pleasant stroll through the suburb will find you exploring second-hand bookshops, art galleries, body-piercing salons, and other interesting places.
