Stayed here in July as the first part of our honeymoon for four nights. The staff here are incredible, they would literally go out of their way to do anything for you- they even posted our camera battery to the other side of the country for us as we had left it behind. They are so attentive and genuine and... More

From the moment we checked in, we were amazed by the service at this boutique hotel. The staff is beyond friendly, and attentive to all your needs.

Just a block from the beach w Table Mountain a few kilometers away. The hotel is ultra modern w exceptional staff and service. It is accessible to all the wonderful aspects of Cape Town. The morning breakfast is amazing. The entire staff is incredibly helpful. The hotel is a jewel.

My stay at The POD Hotel in Cape Town was one of the most pleasant surprises of my time there. The staff is so incredibly friendly and helpful, the rooms are beautiful (heated floors! especially nice because I was there during winter), and I always felt at home - comfortable to do my own thing. I can't even imagine how... More

It was our honeymoon, Impressed by the friendly,wellcoming and very helpfull staff. I loved the design. Quite, clean and relaxing atmosphere. Small warm place to stay. I Prefer this over big hotels. Main door is well-secured opened only by cards or front-desk. Breakfast is of high quality but needs more varieties. The hotel planted a tree for me in a... More

I had read a lot of great reviews on this place, so my expectations were high. Well.....these guys have impressed me above & beyond.

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel. My only complaint would be I wish I had more time there. I honestly have never stayed in a hotel I liked more.

We booked to stay in The Pod for one night during a trip to Cape Town this August. All I can say is that it was a truly special experience. The rooms are comfortable, minimalist yet thoughtful. We had a classic room, and the underfloor and central heating made sure we were extremely comfortable even in the cold of winter.... More
