“Excellent boutique hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Grace has been turned into a modern first class boutique hotel. Service is outstanding and the location next to Rosebank Mall convenient (once the mall has been renovated). A few kinks to sort out - including weak wifi on one side of the building - a somewhat limited room service menu (but very good what is there) - and a wifi system that requires frequent log ins (leading to lost connections to corporate servers). What stood out was the friendliness and warmth of the staff - for a frequent business traveller this has particular value

Room Tip: For good wifi connection - chose rooms 5 or higher on whatever floor

Dear nairobijohn,

Thank you for visiting 54 on Bath and for your Trip Advisor review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and subsequent to your review we have raised your repeated log-in issue with our service provider for investigation. I was rather hoping to meet you personally when you stayed but I'm sure we can leave that until your next visit to Johannesburg, which I hope will be sometime soon.
Kind regards

54 on Bath was the Best Hotel experience of my life! Having lived in New York for 8 years I am used to high levels of service and great hotels. This hotel and was absolutely magical! The room was out of a movie: plush, elegant and beautifully designed. The staff could not do enough for us and always greeted us with a smile and a "can-do" attitude. Anyone staying in Johannesburg would be missing out on an experience of a lifetime if they did not stay here.
Thank you 54 on Bath...you will definitely be seeing us again!
Best Regards, Dimitri

Having not been to the hotel since its last incarnation as The Grace, I can only say that this is truly a top 5 star establishment in Johannesburg. Well done. Every attention to detail is perfect. I will stay there again and I DO heartily recommend the hotel whether you are on a business trip or on holiday.

Room Tip: Corner Rooms are excellent.

We often go to Johannesburg for business and have frankly never found a real wow one . Last week we browsed Tripadvisor and decided to Try 54 on Bath as it has a high rating , is very conveniently situated in Rosebank and the price is reasonable (US$ 325 per room B+B. ).
We arrived at the hotel , they took our car and went to park it and our suitcases to our room whilst we went directly to the restaurant ,first for a drink in the beautiful outdoor garden with a wonderful view of the City and then inside for dinner ,as it was cool outside.
All I can say is that EVERYTHING impressed us tremendously - the staff was the best we have ever encountered anywhere -nothing was too much trouble and their pride in their hotel was amazing The décor is extremely classy , the rooms big and comfortable , a wide variety of coffee and tea , including a coffee machine ,huge beds with the best sleep quality we have ever encountered anywhere in the word. They even had an extensive pillow menu !
We have just returned from an extensive overseas trip to Italy including Rome an Venice as well as the French Riviera and booked everywhere on Tripadvisor ratings . We paid about 3 -4 times the price that 54 On Bath charges and not a single one was even half as good as this hotel . We will never stay in any other Hotel in Johannesburg or Pretoria ,ever!

Room Tip: As this was our first stay I really do not know what the other rooms are like . Our room , no 604 wa...

I'm from around Johannesburg and never had I thought when I wanted a break away from life's busyness, I will find the best right next door. My husband and I had a fantastic time at your hotel. arriving on friday, to find our room all set for a romantic night as we were celebrating our anniversary, was the top of the cream. The food at the restaurant was nothing less than perfect. Thank you so much for a time well spend. Looking forward to visiting very soon.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less A/C unit noise. Totally loved my room.

From the time you arrived at the hotel to the time you departed you were overwhelmed with friendliness and helpfulness!! Nothing is too much for the staff. The newly refurbished bedrooms are elegantly designed and offer great comfort. I stayed on the 8th floor overlooking the pool and well manicured gardens. After making the reservation to stay at the hotel the hotel sent me a preference list to complete so that they understand me and what my needs are – great touch well done!! The food is fantastic! Keep up the good work!

Room Tip: I think all the rooms must b fantastic!
