“Great way stop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

In Jo-burg for the night en route to Victoria Falls from Cape Town. What looked like a basically wasted vacation day was nicely salvaged by our overnight stay in this charming hotel. Well-appointed, immaculate rooms including espresso machine. Dinner and breakfast in the Level Four restaurant both outstanding. Almost wish we could have stayed 1-2 days longer.

I knew that the boutique hotel had a 5 star rating and it was evident in the attention to details of service. When we approached the hotel, I was concerned about the immediate vicinity as there was construction of a large project across the street. As we entered the hotel, there was a well dressed doorman who escorted us to the lobby area where we were greeted with a juice drink and invited us to a polite conversation while sitting on the couch. She explained all the amenities and then described a special 6 course wine pairing event that was taking place that evening. We accepted the offer and then, she and the valet escorted us to our corner room #902. While small, there was enough space to enjoy the views from the bedroom and the bathroom. There was a comfortable king bed, a large flat screen tv, desk and 2 sitting chairs. The bathroom was also small but included a separate tub and a shower that had a nice view and a window that could full open. The details were not spared with a nice makeup mirror, plenty of towels, luxury soap and lotion, bottles of still water, juice and nuts, and there was also complimentary pressing of clothes. After having been on our trip for almost 2 weeks, I took advantage of having some items pressed including a nice outfit for the evening dinner event. We were able to enjoy the sunset from our room and then went down to the 4th floor for dinner. Again, we were greeted and invited to enjoy some complimentary champagne before the dinner. The views were spectacular and there was a lap pool with beautiful and romantic lighting. When we returned back to our room, we noticed that the turn down included cotton mats on either side of the bed and juices with a small dessert. Breakfast the next morning was equally impressive since we were greeted and escorted by our servers with a promise to fulfill all of our needs and requests. There was a large table with a variety of cold items and then there was a menu of cooked items. The server stated that if there was any particular item that we wanted that was not on the menu, the chef would make it for us.

The hotel is also conveniently located adjacent to the mall with a private bridge leading to a variety of shops and restaurants. We took advantage of the proximity on our second night and enjoyed steaks at the grillhouse which is one of the 15 best steakhouses in the world. Unfortunately, when we returned at 9PM, our room was not turned down. I had to call a couple of times to finally get someone to bring us the additional waters. I was also annoyed with the internet process as guests need to establish a user name and password and then re-enter on a daily basis. It was also difficult to add my laptop and they finally provided me with a temporary code. Overall, the staff are extremely friendly and attentive. The accommodations are more than satisfactory and the immediate area is nice although there was another up and coming area with luxury accommodations and a variety of eateries.

Room Tip: request the highest floor and a corner room

54 on Bath is nothing less than one of the more enjoyable boutique hotels that you can stay in while in South Africa or anywhere for that matter. Beautiful rooms, excellent service, strong wifi that works and fabulous restaurant. A gourmet table service breakfast is included. The hotel is connected to the Rosedale Center which is a real plus because of the wonderful eateries and amazing full-service gym that is available to hotel guests ( the concierge will provide you with a gym bag and towel) at no extra charge.

A gem of a hotel in Jberg. Location is great. Staff are the greatest and exceptionally friendly. The rooms are spacious and restfully decorated for comfort and a stress free stay. Great bed for a good night's sleep. Breakfast and dinner in the hotel's restaurant were very good with attentive staff, great selection and presentation of food. Convenient to the Gautrain and the Rosebank Mall. I will recommend "54 on Bath" to all my traveler friends going through Johannesburg to all of the adventures South Africa has to offer.

The service is excellent and the rooms are beautiful. I had a deluxe king, there was an Illy espresso maker in the room, shower and bath (with sea salts)! The decor was muted gray and white, great bed as well. I will definitely stay here when I return.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
54 On Bath is the iconic landmark hotel in the heart of Rosebank, Joburg's vibrant and eclectic tree-lined neighbourhood of eateries, entertainment and art. Offering an exceptional standard of home away from home hospitality our bedrooms exude the elegance, warmth and serenity of fine living, each with views over the garden or abundantly green city skyline. A total of 75 elegantly decorated rooms are offered, comprising 51 Deluxe King Bed Rooms, 8 Deluxe Twin Bed Rooms, 12 Executive Rooms and 3 Luxury Suites. A Universal Accessible room is also available featuring roll-in shower, lowered facilities and a 24-hour monitored emergency help alarm. There are 4 sets of interconnecting rooms ideally suited for families. Each en-suite room is fully equipped with a host of facilities to meet your every need; free and unlimited WiFi, outstanding tea and coffee offering, block-out curtains, 24-hour room service, Cable TV, mini-bar and air-conditioning. Decor is soft and subtle, with pure white linens set against black, grey, teal and cream for an overall calming effect and enjoyable sleeping experience. Our Luxury Suites boast private lounges, spacious en-suite bathrooms and a balcony overlooking the city's northern suburbs. Rosebank is a perfect introduction for first time visitors to the city and with a direct link into the Rosebank Mall the neighboring street cafes, restaurants, boutique stores, world class art galleries, entretainment and the famous Africa Craft Market are right on your doorstep. The abundance of pedestrianised streets and a round the clock "bobby on the beat" security initiative makes it is safe to explore the area on foot and at your own pace. The attractions of Sandton are also nearby should you be keen to explore Nelson Mandela Square, Sandton City or Melrose Arch. We believe it's the simple things in life that make the difference and at Level Four Restaurant you'll enjoy distinctive modern dining. Classic and elegant Level Four offers a superb a la carte breakfast and whilst lunch is a casual light affair, dinner is the perfect opportunity to choose from the excellent a la carte menu. Extremely popular with local Johannesburg residents we recommend you make advance bookings at Level Four. Our Veuve Clicquot Champagne bar offers a range of France's finest alongside cocktails and wines accompanied by sumptuous bar snacks. Overlooking the terrace garden, the champagne bar is the perfect meeting spot for business get-togethers, pre-dinner drinks and evening sundowners. 54 On Bath is 15 miles/35 minutes by car and 18 minutes by Gautrain from O.R Tambo International Airport and 5 miles/ 10 minutes from both downtown Johannesburg and the Sandton CBD. ... more   less
