Location great a few minutes walk from Long st, CTICC, Waterfront, etc. Very friendly staff, clean and upscale everywhere. Quite a little pool with no views, but with a cosy poolside lounge/terrace. Great for a holiday in a city, or a business trip.

Nice, centrally-located hotel, great for business, and priced right. What made this eight-night stay work for me was the staff! Friendly, accommodating - there wasn't a thing I needed that they weren't able to find, direct, or manufacture! A short cab ride from most of my appointments or meetings; on the day off, a free shuttle was ready to take... More

The Hilton is just on the edge of the down town area, and benefits from being a short distance away from the hustle and bustle. The staff were extremely helpful, especially on the concierge desk - which is a great asset. We received good restaurant tips and a friendly word on each occasion that we passed through the door.

Hilton Cape Town city center is well located at walking distance from Long Street, Waterfront, but is located on quite a busy road and as a consequence it was quite noisy in our room (even though it was on the 7th floor). The building itself looks a bit outdated. Our view on Table Mountain was amazing and our room was... More

First impressions were not good. The hotel feels cramped and the decor appears dated. The swimming pool is a puddle and the 1st floor has the only small bar that generally shuts at 11pm (although we learnt to persuade them to keep it open longer.) The bathroom supplies were sporadic and random and the two lifts were always busy and... More

This is a nice small hotel located near the Bo-Kaap in Cape Town. Good service, nice rooms and a location walking distance to many places. Great as a leisure hotel for a base to visit Cape Town but also functional as a business hotel.

Found this hotel to be one of the best I've stayed in. Ease of access, good location, and tranquile rooms. Stayed only a few nights but it was worth choosing this hotel as it made transition around the city so much easier. Would defenetly return here once I visit this city.

I stayed in the hotel as I was attending a course that took place on the premises. I arrived late at night and I must compliment the hotel on the efficiency of the check in at such a late hour. Unfortunately I was given a room on the second floor facing the road and on arrival, I called housekeeping and... More
