We strongly recommend this hotel; food was excellent, staff helpful, congenial, room clean and nice. We had smaller wardrobe and less space for clothes. This should be a problem if you stay here longer. On the other hand, this hotel is profiled as city hotel suitable for short-time business trip especially.

Even for someone who has lived in many countries in four continents our first day in Cape Town was extraordinary. This was mainly due to the extremely pleasant stay at the "Hilton Cape Town City Centre". For us by far the best Hilton experience in the last 10 years: Well organized, friendly and competent staff, clean and quiet room. Really... More

During congress in SA we stayed in Hilton hotel. It was very pleasant. All staff was friendly and helpful, trying to solve all needs and problems. We are very satisfied and recomend this hotel for everyone. I consider it to be more business or city hotel, not a resort :-)

All the staff members I encountered upon arrival, reception, concierge matters, room cleaning etc, were very helpful, courteous, smiling in a very relaxed and natural way. I cannot pick up any single encounter that would have contained even a hint of unpleasantness.

The staff here know how to make you feel welcome. I find most Hiltons to be excellent. They pride themselves on service and the hotels are always clean and comfortable. This hotel takes that baseline and raises it a notch. From the fruit in reception to the wonderful rooms, it has all the facilities you'd want. But, again, it's the... More

The two bedroom suite was the best choice for 3 teenagers and a mother. They watched the games for the World Cup, ate their snacks at the executive lounge, while I worked and then off to see the town. The people were very friendly, the rooms were tended quickly.

Location close to waterfront with beautiful views on table mountain. Check in and check Out were very smooth and fast. Room very spacious with comfortable bed with big bathroom and strong shower. Bathroom amenities were always a problem. We had to daily ask for shower gel and proper towels. Towels are small and worn out- some have holes in it!... More
