This is a nice hotel in a very good location, right in the heart of Cape Town and just a short walk from Long Street. The staff are lovely, and nothing is too much trouble.

I stayed at this hotel for the NYE of 2015, had a amazing time there. Good location, very prestative staff and a fantastic view of the table mountain from the room. The breakfast is until 10:30, só you can get up a little bit later.

Exceptionally convenient location close to monuments, shops, restaurants and public transport (within walking reach). Extremely reactive and friendly staff. Clean and comfortable rooms ( complimentary tea/coffee maker, safe box; no fridge). Wifi on the premises (free for IHG members only). Good buffet breakfast. All in all, a very positive experience: recommended.

Excellent staff, they were very helpful. We brought the wrong power adapter and they were able to lend us one to charge our computer and camera. Enjoyed the breakfast selection also. The room was clean and large enough to spread out our suitcases. Enjoyed staying here.
