Spacious, clean high quality apartment with everything you need for self catering and within easy walk to CTICC. Good value and highly recommend for business or holiday. Take a higher floor apartment for balcony and view.

I stayed here with a colleague for 6 days on a business trip to attend a conference at the convention center. It was a convenient location, about a 2-3 minute walk from the convention center at a reasonable price (about $60-70/night). That was the USP, since most cities do not have a reasonably priced yet decent living options near convention... More

There was however no restaurant to use but they were busy refurbishing it. However there are loads of eateries in the city so its just a short walk to find some breakfast. The rooms... More

The flats are very spacious and beds are very comfortable. Kitchen modern and fully equipped. There are 2 bathrooms so the open plan bathroom isn't a problem whatsoever. Beautiful rain shower and big bath, 2... More

Plenty of space in the 1 bedroom apartment, the layout was great. The kitchen was good, great to be able to cook some good local produce and enjoy a bottle of wine. In walking distance to the V & A shopping, restaurant area. Walked there most days, no need for a taxi. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The hotel is located very close to anything that you can think of that's fun. Long street, V&A, signal hill, Kloof street, etc are just minutes away by walk/car. The rooms are spacious and nicely furnished. The staff are courteous and have a very cheery temperament. They're very helpful with any questions you ask. The restaurant wasn't open when I... More

Conveniently located and a very spacious, clean and modern apartment. Perfect for a field office or longer stay. No separate toilet in the open bathroom, with no door between the bathroom and bedroom.

After walking around and having to ring the hotel we finally found the enterance which is actually on the square with no drive way, the recpetion was a dodgy bar with no real enterance, we checked in with a bad feeling in our stomachs about the dodgy looking hotel. We were on the top floor where once we got inside... More
