The Capital breaks ground in Melrose


The Capital Hotels and Apartments has begun construction of its latest property – The Capital Melrose.

With more than 109 rooms and studio apartments that can be variously configured into studio, one- or two-bedroom apartments, with or without a lounge and fully equipped kitchen according to guest needs, The Capital Melrose will also feature four ground floor garden units, which will hold added appeal for long-stay guests.

It will offer a 360-degree lifestyle solution to those working in and visiting Johannesburg, with its proximity to one of the city’s premium retail, dining and office precincts, as well as easy access to the city’s main highway.

The Capital Melrose will also offer conferencing facilities, an a la carte restaurant and bar, swimming pool, and on-site gym.

The Capital Hotels and Apartments, which has opened 11 apartment-style hotels across South Africa since it launched in 2006, opened The Capital Pearls in Umhlanga in 2017 (see story here) and The Capital On The Park in 2018 (see story here), with The Capital Melrose scheduled to open in early-2019.
