Fodor's Review

The quirky Edwardian lobby with its comfy armchairs will capture your heart, as will the guest rooms decorated in philosophical themes—Greek style in the Aristotle room, Faustian texts in the Goethe room. The Spinoza is an homage to Golden Age style, complete with black-and-white floors, a 19th-century library lamp, and framed paintings. Enjoy breakfast, or merely relax, in the large garden, or order from a nearby restaurant and dine in the cozy lobby/lounge, also the

setting for weekly lectures and discussions. The hotel has been taken over by the Sandton chain, but luckily this hasn't detracted from the charm and character; more suites are being installed in a house on the same street.
