Very central. In town and close to the Waterfront. Can walk to the Waterfront which makes it very convenient Comfortable apartment with stylish decor and all the basics. Good value for money! Staff are friendly and helpful Should throw in the parking and not charge extra as there is not much parking available outside

Not only is the place run down, but we were badly treated by staff and the manager himself. Staying there ruined our holiday. The managers attitude was demeaning and aggressive. They also boast a luxury suit but the views consist of run down buildings and the rooms themselves were not cleaned properly.

Room 705 is a corner room. Self contained. A little kitchen equiped with toaster, micro wave and a cooker. Very clean and a nice room. View on tablemountain. Breakfast: plenty of everything and sometime a speciality from the kitchen like frozen coconut squares.

Great hotel with huge suite rooms in the middle of Cape Town. It's only a short walk to Long Street for all the shops and restaurants or the train station which will take you out to the airport. You could even walk all the way up to Table Mountain if you wished, but that will take at least an hour.... More

I stayed here for three night in middle of July. I chose this hotel as it is at a 5 min walking distance from the Cape Town International Convention Center (CTICC) where I was attending a conference and this was the only one within my limited budget. I got a very good deal on hotels.com & my experience at this... More

Reception staff were quite disinterested. First comment was its Sunday our Bar and Food is closed and its 80 a day for parking. Not exactly a great way to start. Room was OK but only for one night. No views uncomfortable furniture. Mouldy shower. Icon apartments are a minutes walk away and far better for about the same price. Breakfast... More

The rooms themselves were very well equipped for self-catering with plenty of space, but the downside was that the windows faced straight into an office block and with no net curtains which meant keeping the curtains closed all day. The hotel is located in a business area, close to amenities, but after hours and over weekends is pretty deserted, so... More

Appreciated by its location - 10 minutes walk by the MyCiti Airport Bus Terminal and City Sightseeing CTICC station, right next to Burger King and a supermarket where you can get a Vodacom sim card for internet. Also with its nice breakfest, friendly staff and neat and tidy room. Definitely my first and future choice in Cape Town.

Quiet hotel situated in the CBD and not too far away from the party streets and the v&a waterfront. The breakfast spread was quite good and the manager on duty was really helpful and accommodating. Definitely recommend staying there if you arent looking for anything too expensive.
