What can I say except wow. Tripadvisor winner two years running. Deserves every star. From moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. Nothing is too much for the staff from front line to kitchen staff and every whim is attended to without hesitation. You show respect and u earn it. Breakfasts are fantastic as I challenge u to not... More

I find the part of Sea Point that this hotel is located in is a bit on the shabby side, the small shopping complex in which the hotel entrance is located is nice, but once you step out onto the street I felt a bit on the uneasy side as there were plenty of drunk vagrants loitering around.

This is our second extended stay at this hotel. From the time of wring to Marilu till check-out, everything was marvelous. We arrived at about 1400, and within minutes were in our large room on the fifth floor, equipped with mini fridge as requested. As hard as we could ry, there is no noise from the passageway, nor from neighboring... More

We love this hotel due to its great location and friendly staff (especially Liesl at Reception). Rooms are big and breakfast is nice. Shops and restaurants are nearby, so is the beach for jogging and cycling. All sights of interest are easy to reach. Good place in Cape Town.

Stayed here Feb 22- 26 2014 between business trips in Johannesburg and Nairobi. This was just what I needed! This being my first time in Cape Town and alone, I was a bit nervous. I later found that there was nothing to be nervous about and was able to relax. From booking tours, to making dinner reservations to booking taxi's... More

From the dead orchids in the reception area to the rock hard pillows (despite a pillow menu supposedly on offer) the airconditioning unit being so loud that I was unable to use it, I cannot find anything to recommend about this hotel - for what you get it is totally overpriced. Good location tho.

Stayed at this shotel in Dec 2013. Very central to everything, rooms are decent size, had a lovely view. Staff is very friendly. Only problem i had was the TV gave problems daily. Breakfast is standard but could have done with abit more variety. All in all a great hotel to stay. Value for money.

Breakfast was absolutely wonderful! Most of the staff were very friendly, especially the housekeeping staff and security. The man at reception was not that friendly. A lady later took over which was much more friendly. The room was small and hot, facing right into the morning sun! It seemed like they revamped a storeroom to make more space. Never accept... More

New Kings Hotel is situated in the heart of Sea Point - lots of restaurants and stores that are walking distance, including the mall that the hotel is situated in. From Check in to Check out, everyone was so helpful and professional. The rooms are quite big in size and had a lovely view of the ocean - would have... More
