The rooms are small, but all is very clean and have all necessary facilities. The area is quite noisy, but it's only a 15 minute walk from Waterfront. Service was perfect, I can definitely recommend this hotel!

Check in was a breeze. The service was fairly good. The hotel has a restaurant, bar and cigar lounge and is located close to Long Street. Lovely breakfast but limited options. Ethiopian cuisine. Clean and tidy. Room service available 24/7.

During my time at kings in cape, I was subject to poor service standards, no one was very helpful. The food is average, i opted to eat elsewhere and the room need to be upgraded. I wish them all the luck.

Good things: 1. Location. Next to the city center, restaurants, shops and not very far from the waterfront. Bad things: 1. Room. The closet of my room was destroyed, the staff told me they would fix it right away, after 5 days nobody came. The windows were broken like someone opened fire on them. 3. Elevator. There is a fake... More

I will never stay here again, let me start with the horrible long wait for my hot breakfast. I got there at 10:10 for breakfast and only got to eat at 12:00pm. I ordered, 2 egg whites, bacon, sausage, beans, raw tomato and mushroom and white toast. After waiting 40 minutes for my breakfast and seeing that the couple that... More

As I typically do, I’ll sum up the top and bottom three aspects of the hotel (as I experienced them). For other implications of my stay, feel free to continue reading on. Top 3: 1. Location. Located in City Bowl, you can walk almost anywhere that is almost anything near downtown Cape Town. Near the South African Missionary Meeting House... More

I had tge worst experience of all my travels. Requested plain yoghurt for breakfast on 1st day. That was not made available. I raised the matter with F&B manager but no change. On my last day I requested a packed breakfast because I was departing early, that was also not delivered. I felt like I was being done a favour... More
