Hotel Bristol set to be a sundowner spot of note
Always on the lookout for a spot to take in great views of the neighbourhood or the city, we’ve found a new standout option: Home Suite Hotel Bristol (on Bristol Street, Rosebank) is a new intimate ‘home suite’. (That seems to be a term for places that bridge being a smaller hotel with an element of more casual apartment living to create a home-away-from home vibe).
It’s less than 1 km from the Rosebank Gautrain, which makes it a lovely launchpad from which to explore the area. Let’s not forget that Rosebank has become an art and design hub alongside some of the city’s slickest restaurants and bars. The hotel is upmarket and elegant but not standardized like so many of the bigger ones. It’s sophisticated without being brash, and Tonic, one of the most awarded design teams around (they specialize in bespoke design and interiors) has made their mark. The hotel is tech-friendly with things like a mobile key that’s sent to your hone instead of time-consuming check-ins.
And here’s where the great view part comes in: there’s a roof “garden,” one of those spaces where you can enjoy a drink and soak up the city. We can just see this becoming quite a spot when summer sets in…
