The Capital Melrose Brings It’s Edgy Vibe

Edgy, Instagrammable vibe brought to the city’s most exciting district

The Capital Melrose brings its edgy, Instagrammable vibe to the city’s most exciting district.

Proximity to Melrose Arch means best location and best rates for execs, families and holidaymakers

The Capital Melrose has opened alongside the trendy and bustling Melrose Arch, offering visitors to Johannesburg a contemporary and well-priced flexible accommodation option in the heart of the city’s most exciting precinct. The newest property in The Capital Hotels and Apartments portfolio, this exciting new destination offers 109 hotel rooms, studios and apartments.

The Capital Melrose is within walking distance of premium retail outlets, and a variety of restaurants, and the apartment hotel’s location on the other side of Atholl-Oaklands Road, opposite Melrose Arch, means that it can offer accommodation at rates far more affordable than other hotels within the main precinct – typically 25% cheaper.

“Melrose and Melrose Arch are hot places to be for their vibe and vitality, and we were drawn to the district’s exciting energy,” says Marc Wachsberger, MD of The Capital Hotels and Apartments. “However, while people are happy to eat and shop there, few can afford to stay there. The Capital Melrose offers the alternative urban styled hip hotel, across the road from the main action, that allows you to have all the uses without the extortionate expense.”

The hotel’s personality is evident from the time guests arrive, with a striking Instagrammable wall at the entrance, and vibey music that follows visitors as they make their way through its naturally lit, edgy but spacious industrial chic interiors.
The Capital Melrose offers accommodation that’s customisable for lone travellers or families, from studio apartments to one- or two-bedroom apartments complete with a lounge area and fully equipped kitchen (with a full oven), which are perfect for long stays. Each bedroom has its own TV, meaning that families don’t need to argue over the remote, or which channel of the full DSTV bouquet to watch.

When it comes to leisure and dining options, The Capital Melrose offers a buffet breakfast and an interactive menu complete with a build-a-burger option to keep kids of all ages engaged. The bar, with its range of Kegtails on tap is alongside the pool, with other available essentials including a gym and uncapped high-speed Wi-Fi available throughout the apartment hotel.

Free parking and free laundry are other small details that make a big difference, giving guests what they want and need in an urban home away from home.

The Capital Melrose is open for reservations, with a discount offered for direct bookings through www.thecapital.co.za or their app.
