Second time that we have stayed there. Friendly and helpful staff, lovely rooms, excellent breakfast selection. Very close to all Cape Town has to offer. Didn't get too much rest this time round due to other inconsiderate guests.

Probably the only City Lodge in the country with decent service. We attended a show at Grand West and booked the City Lodge. Every person we experienced displayed a commitment to customer service especially housekeeping. I have never met such a warm and friendly housekeeping team. I wish all City Lodges be focus on service the manner in which this... More

This was our first (and last) stay. Our usual hotel was fully booked and our trip was very "last minute", so we didn't have a lot of options. Room half the size and double the price compared to our usual hotel. Bathroom not enough toiletries for 2 people, and an ancient kettle meant endless patience while we waited for it... More

This is the budget option onsite at the Grandwest Casino and I was there for two days because I was working on an event in the Grandwest Arena, so it was extremely handy being within a 5 minute walk! The whole place is a bit shabby and outdated décor wise, but what it lacked in style and aesthetics was more... More

Nothing to complain about in the quality of our stay. The room I felt was a tad tight but the bathroom was really spacious. My main gripe was the slamming of doors . For some reason , I presume it had to do with the locking device, the door could not be pushed closed - one had to give it... More

Check-in always a breeze. Staff always friendly and accommodating. Rooms comfortable and always immaculately clean. No complaints at all. Am of the opinion that breakfast is totally over priced as well as the liquor in the evenings.

This is a simple no frills hotel that offers a warm and friendly welcome. The rooms are comfortable, clean with comfortable beds. Rooms have air-con and opening windows. The bathroom with bathtub and separate shower cubicle is great however a little dimly lit. Amenities are adequate for one person especially the bath gel - take extra if you are 2.... More

We decided to stay-over the night of the Carlos Santana performance (and what a show!), so we could arrive early and rest a bit, early dinner and a relaxing drink after the show.
