Great time at Fountains, staff were friendly and generally had a fantastic time! Neat room, great food and friendly helpful willing staff made my stay that much better. Location is central to most of cape town, and the staff organised us transport wherever we needed to go.

Fountains is centrally located and is a 3 star hotel. However this is no excuse for the general neglect of the hotel, its common parts and the services areas. As you enter the first things that you notice is a bad refuse smell that never seems to leave. The smell increases and decreases with intensity depending on how well connected... More

We booked three night at the Fountains Apartments and unfortunately the rooms were no up to standard, the bathrooms smelt of urin, the carpets had bugs and were stained, the curtains were the dirtiest I had ever seen. Sad it was so as we were looking forward to a great weekend. We wont be stay there again.

My husband and I and two friends just returned from a wonderful trip to South Africa where we stayed at the Fountains Apartments in Cape Town for 5 nights. The location is wonderful, right in the heart of Cape Town with a central location to all of the things we wanted to see and do. Upon arrival we were upgraded... More

I stayed at this hotel (apartments) in early February 2012. Due to the facts below, I was promised a refund for 1 night. They claimed that they could not refund via my credit card but had to credit my bank account, I still haven't received payment almost a month later and every time I query I get a new excuse,... More

We came here after spending a week near Kruger Park, too. The city is definitely a change of pace! We totally enjoyed our first visit to Cape Town. We would love to come back and we would definitely stay here again. The apartment was spacious and the kitchen was properly equipped, though we would have liked a microwave oven. We... More

My husband, adult daughter and I spent a week here after a 2 week safari in Kruger so it was hard to adjust at first to this rather noisy inner city location. However, The Fountains is ideally suited for seeing Cape Town. There is a bus stop for the fabulous double-decker red sightseeing bus right near the Fountains plus both... More
