The Hilton Cape Town is a good business hotel located in the center of town. Its clean, and well maintained (but a tiny bit dated). Its primarily a business hotel and does lack a bit of charm, but good for what it is! If you are a tourist its ok, but you will have to travel down to the Victoria... More

Hotel is pretty standard Hilton with great service. It is in the city so on a pretty busy road. There is some road noise, but that's to be expected based on the location. It's a quick cab ride to the V&A Waterfront and other locations. We found the staff to be very attentive and helpful.

A very friendly environment with great service and the manager really goes the extra mile. Highly advised for anything from a relaxing evening with your love to having a dinner with the company!! I will definitely return to the Signal Hill bar and hubbly lounge. Thank you Yusuf Mussa for the great evening :)

At this hotel I was racially, ethnically and religiously discriminated against. What sort of Hilton hotel does not serve bacon for breakfast. I could understand this if it were in an Islamic country but South Africa is still a multi-cultural society and to be told that I cannot have bacon with my eggs for breakfast is an absolute disgrace.

The accommodation is key point for a long journey abroad. I did a very nice experience in Hilton Cape Town City Centre. Thanks for their hospitality and qualified survice. If possible, I would like to choose it again in the future. It is also a high recommendation for friends.

Very nice/smart room and excellent service from the Hilton staff. the bathroom was outstanding. A smile goes a long way. The parking is also a plus point. Highly recommended if you want to be central to all the routes. God bless.

We have been to Cape Town twice before and both times stayed in Camps Bay. This time we needed to be in town as it was a business trip predominantly. Its in the perfect location to get around, right by the waterfront and only a 10 minute drive from Camps Bay. Rooms are nice and modern, the staff are delightful,... More

Hotel staff was very helpful from the front desk to the concerige to the waiters in the bar. They helped us arrange transportation and recommended restaurants amd things to do. We felt safe walking around the neighborhood during the day, but to err on the side of caution used taxis in the evening. There is no ATM located on the... More

The Hilton was a great hotel selection for Cape Town. Great location in city centre, and the concierge staff is very very helpful! Thaafir was the best! The front desk staff was able to accomodate us and allow us to check in early. The pool is a bit small and cold however. I would recommend getting access to the Executive... More

have to say this is one of the best Hilton's I've stayed in. Some might not like the fact that it is away from the harbor area, sited more centrally but the waterfront is a short (cheap) taxi drive away. My room on the 5th floor didn't have the best view, some look out on to table mountain, but the... More
