My husband and I stayed at the New Kings hotel for one night. Very modern and stylish hotel, great location, beautiful room and amazing view! The staff was however unfriendly upon arrival and did not look interested in assisting us. Furthermore they were busy with construction work which we were not informed about before the time, so it was extremely... More

Stayed here twice already. What a charming place. The decor is fab and the staff are great! Booked online and confirmed reservation via e-mail. Asked for a sea-facing room, which was good but as the hotel is not set on the beach rd, doesn't really make much difference. Rooms are big and spacious but from the first time we were... More

I really enjoyed my stay at New Kings. Great service, friendly staff, lovely room and a breakfast to die for! The hotel is situated close to the beach, the Waterfront, Table Mountain and the list goes on.... Will be back!

A two day trip to Cape Town was made most pleasant with a stay in this hotel. Great service, friendly people all round, great parking in a busy area, yet so quiet we felt we'd been placed in sound proof room. A great centralised place to stay.

My cousin and myself treated our self to two nights in Cape town to do baby shopping before her new born arrives. We could not enjoy the Lounge/bar area for there was a private function. Naomi at Reception phoned Chantille at management and they agreed on a refund so we left. One month has passed and still no refund. This... More

Beautiful location. Rooms are ok, all amenities are in place. Ambience not so good. My biggest issue was security. The hotel is located in a shopping mall, which is wonderful, right. At the bottom is a parking garage, also great. However anyone using the mall is parking in the parking garage. The elevator from the parking garage goes right to... More

The rooms are high tech... More

It is pretty bad that this good hotel in terms of rooms and restaurant has so many security related issues. First the Magnetic cards to open the rooms are not at all reliable. For example our 2 cards never worked both at the same time... Worse as we were a group of 28 persons, one person, by choosing the wrong... More
