The locations is extremely great in a walking distance to all you need (shops, bars, restaurants, public transport, etc.). The value is great indeed. Very safe around even at late night. It is on the top of a hill and walking sometimes can be challenging. Some of the apartments the entrance is from outside and when it rains can be... More

I went with some friends and we shared a nice apartment for the three of us. They had the upstairs room and I was downstairs in the other bedroom. The apartment was very clean and nice, the maids came everyday though we never saw them as we were out exploring the city. The only issue that I have is that... More

Receptionist was very off mood on arrival. Gave a dark dank room behind reception for our son. Tried to charge twice for airport taxi. Inappropriately charged late check-in fee despite our informing we would arrive past 4pm since we were coming by road from Lesotho. Had to contact credit card company to reverse unwarranted charge. Will not use or ever... More

The rooms are very nice and big and each one has its own on-sweet bathroom. all the rooms share one kitchen and sitting room area. The owners are friendly and it is located close to central Cape Town.

The Waterkant Place has become my second home on my regular visits to Cape Town. Their rooms are spacious, the positioning perfect in the colourful area of Waterkant Personal, attentive service and a great outside breakfast area.

This was a quick stop for business and my first time at De Waterkant. Check in was fast and efficient. Rooms nice, clean and tidy. Biggest problem was lack of parking in vicinity. Area very busy so ended up parking in a parkade and walking up to check in and then moved my car later. Am a light sleeper so... More

Thanks again to De Waterkant for making coming to Cape Town feel like coming to a second home. Always friendly and helpful, in a nice, village-y neighborhood. This time, my room was in a shared apartment (never saw nor heard the other guests) with a private balcony with late morning to early afternoon sun. Always something to be wanted -... More

The place... More
