Are you heading to South Africa and worried that you won’t be able to enjoy the very best of metrosexual hospitality. Check out the Rosebank Hotel, probably the only hotel I’ve ever been to which is much more impressive in person than on its website. It is just two blocks away from the Rosebank Mall and, for all you cyber-enthusiasts, from the offices of the African Commons Project.

The lobby has lots of smiling faces and the kind of lighting that makes everyone look pretty:

Also appropriate for confined debauchery are the cocktail pods:

The rooms have all the added touches: slippers by the bed, flower petals on the pillows, and, get this, mirrored-glass that looks out on the rest of the room from the shower:

All that was missing was the accompanying super model. Well, you don’t get everything.

Most impressive of all, though, was the restaurant and its mammoth breakfast spread:
