Value Rating **

We only stayed at the Melville Turret because our favorite Bed & Breakfast in Johannesburg (The Sunbury) was full and this was in close walking distance. The Turret is both friendly and stuffy at the same time. You can't really buy your own groceries to cook (which is what we like most about Bed & Breakfasts - we feel more like we're at home) and the rooms are very pricey (we payed 560 Rand, or about 65 USD). The place is not conducive to meeting other guests, and attracts a somewhat older crowd. With that said if you are looking for a very safe and clean place to stay in J'burg with delicious breakfasts (lots of fresh fruit, yogurt, and omelets) and free Wi-Fi, that is in walking distance to the bars and restaurants of Melville, then this is a good pick. While you could find a budget option in Sandton for the same price, the nice thing about Melville is that you are in the heart of the nightlife and action. You don't feel like a tourist, you can interact with locals, but yet still be safe and secure at the same time (of course, as always, just make sure you use cabs at night).
