A light white open place-space, motel Mi Pi CHi is the ideal sanctum to retreat to after a day of Joburg frenzy.

Unique among Johannesburg places of stay, motel Mi Pi CHi utilises its location to offer an urban African experience – contrasting a serene and quiet interior with a lively street scape on weekends.

Designed by architect, Andrew Makin whose creative wizardry has contributed to watershed projects like the South African Constitutional Court & Singita Lebombo and Sweni in the Kruger National Park.

Boasting easy drive-in, drive-out accessibility it's an unexpected oasis on the other side of a rough, high brick wall on Melville’s vibey fourth avenue.

motel Mi Pi CHi announces itself to the weary traveller by means of a cute neon pink sign, that is just a little clue to the stylish contemporary accommodation that lies beyond our impressive front wall. The perfect location for globetrotters to unpack their bags and make themselves at home, our sassy overnight establishment gives you the opportunity to refuel and refresh during your trip to Joburg, Mzansi’s hippest afropolitan capital.

motel Mi Pi CHi is situated on fourth avenue in the heart of Melville, close enough to wonder down the street for a decent espresso or browse through a second hand bookshop in Joburgs’s most cosmopolitan village.

If it's a silent weekend of cocooning you're after, head further north, but if you like a bit of weekend liveliness, the 7th street stretch of cool bars and cafes is just a stone's throw away. ‘Sewende Laan' even has a daily soap opera named after it.

Close to the gritty city as well as well as to the M1 Highway, which leads to the flash northern suburbs, Melville is the ideal central location for any visit to Johannesburg.

Each bedroom suite opens on to a screeded concrete shower room with under-floor heating that intern flows out a little private courtyard with a waterfall, so guests feel like they have their own little piece of wilderness to enjoy.  It’s like taking a sensual outdoor shower minus the rough edges.

Our open, visible clothes racks (with lots of hangers) mean you don't have to dig around in a dark cupboard to find what you want to wear.  Each shower room is equipped with a hair dryer and shaver plug.

The Motel is the lovechild of Nicky Rofail, Whose Humour and poppy inventiveness give the place its character and charm. She’s the generous sprite behind the surprise bowls of Nik Naks, Liquorice all sorts and sugus sweeties.
