Fabulous 8.6 From 91 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great Hotel.
This is an excellent hotel . Every detail was perfect. We were picked up from the airport by a terrific shuttle service- he even waited for over an hour because the airline lost our luggage. The front desk is efficient and friendly. They worked hard to track down our luggage and succeeded.The room is quiet, and comfy. There is a safe and great pressure in the shower. You will be right in the centre of gardens, museums, restaurants and markets. Breakfast is generous with freaks fruit etc. During the day there is a nice bustle going on outside the hotel but during the night the hotel seems to encourage you to order in and eat in their bar area because of safety. This is not necessary. There is a terrific bar- Rootstalk- a few steps across the mall with friendly owners who like to chat. There is nothing to be frightened of so try a few of the restaurants on the Mall. We went to The Fugard Theatre and walked home. Each of the 4 nights we enjoyed Theatre , Jazz at The Crypt and a dance piece at The Alexander. Exercise caution and leave your hotel at night. Experience the local area and come back to this terrific ,reasonably priced hotel. WiFi was excellent.

Centrally located hotel
Very friendly, helpful staff at reception desk. Location is great for shopping both on the street (promenade booths) and in shops.

Comfortable, clean and decent value for Cape Town
Got in quite late and check in was smooth. Staff is nice. Bar is good enough for a nightcap. Breakfast is fine, although the breakfast dining area was somewhat crowded. Rooms are comfortable enough and clean. I was attending a conference in Cape Town and while it did seem that others I talked to paid about the same and got larger rooms, it seemed to me to still be decent value.

Good location
My stay was fine and the hotel is close to most places I wanted to visit. The car access to the hotel is a bit tight due to the tourist market in the area.
