“Wonderful boutique, exceptional service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Excellent little boutique in all respects, though the thing that makes it stand out most of all is the friendly, gracious staff who are always happy and helpful (and who even patiently attempted to teach us a few words in Zulu). The Rosebank mall and the Zone are a short walk away if you fancy some nearby retail therapy. While there are great places nearby to eat, the hotel restaurant is excellent, so it is hard to want to go some place else. The chef even came out some nights and made some creative special off-menu items for us as we had dined there a number of nights running. Meanwhile up in the rooms, they will come up and press 3 items for free for you and at turn down each night, there was a little treat waiting -for example a macaroon and some fresh pressed apple juice. We will definitely stay here again when we come back to Johannesburg.

Room Tip: Corner suites have windows on two sides - they are lighter, airier and feel bigger. I would also ask...

Great location for Rosebank central and connection to surrounding Sandton area. Excellent value, bar prices perhaps a little steep for SA patrons.
Very comfortable and clean with polite and engaging staff. The finest breakfast I have ever had . . . all in all a very pleasant 4-day experience.

We were on a short visit durning our honeymoon, but we were delighted with the hotel! Te room was very nice!! The service was spectacular! As we arrived to our room we had a lot of surprises, like snacks, roses, champagne, candles, etc... Making it for a very special night! Breakfast was also spectacular!

This is the best hotel I have stayed in in Johannesburg. The rooms are generous and beautifully decorated. The beds are extremely comfortable and luxurious. The level of service is unmatched in Johannesburg. The staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The extra attention to detail makes for much enjoyment and leaves a seasoned traveller feeling endulged. The breakfasts are superb.

We are presently still in situ, attending a water polo tournament in Jhb. We booked in here by chance and have had the most incredibly satisfying stay. The attention to detail, the quality of the service, the food, the touches of nuts, macaroons and jelly babies, the pillow menu (chose your preference of pillow) the gym bag for our gym visits ....the list goes on and on. We will definitely back and are loathe to leave!!

Room Tip: Any overlooking the pool

From check-in to check-out the staff were attentive to every little detail. Everything I requested from the front desk was brought to the room within minutes. The room was gorgeous and well-appointed. The coffee maker was the coolest one I'd ever seen.

I stayed at 54 on Bath for 7 nights, combining business and personal agendas. Service was outstanding and location by the Rosebank Mall extremely convenient. The different hotels in thisTsogo hotel group also worked together well, organising storage for my luggage at a sister hotel at Monte Casino so that I could go to the theatre there on my way to the airport, without having to worry about my luggage! I strongly recommend this hotel as an outstanding experience.

Room Tip: All rooms are large and extremely comfortable
