The hotel is always clean, including the... More

We stayed here when we drove to Cape Town from Johannesburg. This is a nice place to rest. Housekeeping is helpful and prompt. It has basic amenities and is value for money. Cape Town has so much to visit that we planned to spend very little time in our room. This place served the purpose of resting. It is located... More

Finding budget accommodation in Cape Town is not easy. The price us great but you get what you pay for. The staff were friendly and helpful enough and parking was great. The room is air conditioned but I must say the sheets although clean we're threadbare. The shower floor needs to be rescaled and the underside of the toilet seat... More

Terrible service, in that they barged into the room at 10:50 despite numerous attempts to notify them that we were not dressed inside and the explanation we got was that they were reminding us that check out was at 11, I was in complete disgust the receptionist did not appease us in the least in fact she stood by that...

This is a perfect place to stay while in Cape Town. The rooms are clean and the service is great. The price for what you receive is definitely excellent. We walked around the area and major attractions were not a too far drive away. We plan on staying here again.

I stayed here for three weeks on a group study tour. The location was great--close to the waterfront--and it's very close to the soccer stadium being built currently for the 2010 World Soccer Cup. It is very bare bones--no restaurant, elevators, chests of drawers, or phones in room, etc.; but it was very clean. It also seemed very safe, and... More
