Pablo House
Amazing Stay in Melville
This place was fantastic - from the decor to the view to the great barman, we had a fantastic time - wish we could have stayed longer

Pablo House
Lovely spot!
I really enjoyed my stay at Pablo House and would recommend this spot. Comfy bed, beautiful design and spectacular views of Jhb. Friendly owners and staff and great breakfast at the nearby restaurant (you get a voucher for R100pp and transport to and from Pablo Eggs-Go Bar, but you can arrange to have breakfast at Pablo House if you leade). Nice extra touches like the Netflix TV and electric blanket on the bed. Great access to Melville restaurants and shops, but away from the noise. The wooden floors and close rooms mean you can hear other people moving around and chatting, but a handy pair of earplugs is provided (and a sleep mask), which solves this easily.

Super friendly, welcoming hosts. Views are truly spectacular. Modern Artworks and furnishings in common lounge areas are WOW. The room was really tastefully decorated, spacious,squeaky clean, luxury feel, nice touches- Charlotte Rhys products, Bluetooth Marshall speaker etc, brilliant shower. Breakfasts way exceeded our expectations.

Pablo house was great!
Pablo house was a gem! We stayed here for the last couple of days of our honeymoon and could not have been happier. The space is comfortable, modern, and beautiful - with views over Johannesburg from the lounge and dining area. Our room was spacious and beautifully decorated with all the amenities we needed (although having some wall chargers for our phone would be great). We had the room with its own private patio, which we used extensively. Having a large TV with Netflix was a also a plus for downtime. I particularly loved having close access to the pool (which we didn't even know existed before we got there). the staff were all warm, friendly, and the service was attentive and thoughtful. The location in Melville is a plus - there a lot of great bars and restaurants nearby and is a quick Uber ride to other points of interest. The only downside is that the guesthouse is on a very steep hill, hence the great views, which makes it hard to walk to and from places.nearby. I wanted to dedicate a whole paragraph to the food. It was exceptional. We had some of the best shakshuka I've ever had for breakfast. The breakfast included with our booking was delicious. There is a wood-burning oven on site and it is put to good use. The pizza and bread was delicious. The cocktails and bar service was great as well. All the juice for use in cocktails was fresh squeezed. I would highly recommend Pablo House for the hospitality, comfort, delicious food, and great service.
