54 on Bath is a welcoming and well situated boutique hotel set right at the heart of the vibrant suburb of Rosebank. Until recent years this iconic face brick building housed the award-winning Grace Hotel, then after a multi-million rand refurbishment reopened as 54 on Bath in July 2012.
Although one of Johannesburg’s newest boutique hotels, 54 on Bath already has a loyal following and was rated one of the “Top 10 Hotels in South Africa” (TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice 2015). This is thanks in part to the friendly and professional service; from the moment you arrive you’re made to feel welcome, and each member of staff goes out of their way to provide an exceptional guest experience.
Johannesburg is a busy, bustling city but the hotel itself has a sense of calm with elegant décor and a soothing colour palette of creams and greys. We also love the rooftop garden and lap pool, where you can relax with an alfresco snack or a long, cold drink as you take in the city views.
In the evenings the Veuve Clicquot Champagne Bar is a popular meeting place for hotel guests and locals alike. As for dinner, either visit one of the many restaurants in the area or dine at 54 on Bath’s highly acclaimed Level Four Restaurant which serves classical cuisine with a contemporary twist (seared duck breast, porcini risotto and rib-eye steaks are amongst the favourites).
