“Fabulous hotel in Johannesburg”
Reviewed March 10, 2014

My son and I just spent one night at the hotel 54 on Bath at the end of our trip in South Africa. I have never received such personal service as I did at this hotel. They first connected me to a guide who works for them, Jacob. One could not ask for a more perfect person to give a tour of Soweto. Jacob grew up in Soweto and was there during the mid 70s riots. His mom still lives there and he even brought us to her house where she still runs a shabeen.

Dear Lynda R,

Thanks for sharing your review on Trip Advisor we appreciate your time in doing so. It was an absolute pleasure to look after you and your son and to assist where we could to make your stay more enjoyable.
We're delighted to hear you enjoyed your tour of Soweto - it is a fantastic place to visit and the locals are incredibly welcoming and friendly. Your experience with Jacob was surely a memory that will last a long time and this is what we wish for our guests when they stay at 54 on Bath. We do hope that you will have the opportunity to return to South Africa one day and naturally that you'll visit us once more.

Thanks again.

As this was a day to spoil my wife and I. I must say that the level of professionalism and the experience was mindblowing.
As a frequent guest in most of the Tsogo Sun group this hotel was and is the best experience one could ask for.
From the check in to the check out I can not find any fault.
The dinner at Level 4 with friends was also very high class and I can recommend this hotel to everyone.
Keep it up 54 on Bath as i am now you guest for life!!

Room Tip: If you can please try and get the executive suite.

We had previously stayed at this hotel when it was the Grace Hotel and were concerned as to whether the same level of service was maintained. We were very pleased that the hotel is actually better. We arrived with 4 other guests in our party and everyone raved about the service and ambiance of the hotel. The facelife of the rooms made you want to stay in the rooms rather than going out, and for those who like bathrooms this is it, even with the scale. Food is great and the staff is very attentive to any needs. Two of our party were ill from airport food and the staff took excellent care of them and even rescheduled their tour until the next day when they were better at no additional charge. The hotel's private transfer and car service was an added incentive. We will definitely be back when we return to Johannesburg. my wife is a hotel snob and she loved it and highly recommends 54 on Bath.

Dear Michael K,

Thank you so much for sharing your experience of 54 on Bath on Trip Advisor, we appreciate it.

In its former life as The Grace Hotel this grand lady was known all around the world for its superior service and ever since we took over it was always our goal to keep this reputation alive. It is reassuring to hear from our guests that can make this comparison, that our efforts are on the right track.

It is wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that you took time to go on a tour, Johannesburg has lots on offer for visitors to enjoy.

We trust the return journey home was comfortable especially for your travel partners and it would be a privilege to have you stay next time you come to Johannesburg.

Kind regards
Darren

My husband & I celebrated our wedding aniversary at 54 on Bath and it was the most memorable stay we have had at a hotel. The service was impecable, the hotel was beautifully decorated in a blend of Georgian and Modern styles and the restaurant served fabulous breakfasts, high teas and dinners. Loved the corner room we stayed in with a view over the city of Rosebank from the shower.

Very nice large room, modern and sophisticated alle decorated on tones of greys. Discreet and effective service. Located literally next to Rosebank Mall. Not absolutely central but what is in such a spread out city ? It is 5 minutes by taxi to Nelson Mandella Square and Sandton. Gorgeous breakfast with lots of fresh fruits included. We would definitely book this hotel again !!

Dear Olivier D,

Thanks for taking your time to review 54 on Bath, we appreciate it. At over 1600 square kilometres Joburg is indeed a sprawling city so we're perfectly placed between the CBD and Sandton - the best of both worlds. We appreciate the fact that you would elect to return and do look forward to your next visit.

Kind regards
