A small yet comfortable hotel in a very good location within Cape Town. The breakfast is lovely with lots of fresh and healthy offerings. The free WiFi is slow and unreliable but still a highly recommended hotel.

My wife and I spent an overnight for our sixth anniversary at this quaint hotel in Gardens. The staff was courteous, the breakfast delicious and accommodation was excellent. We arrived on the Friday evening and it was nice to be received with the band playing in the background at the restaurant in the hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay.

What I have always liked about the hotel is that It is centrally situated, with stunning views, easy access to a number of shopping malls. As well as being in easy reach to most of the stunning and scenic attractions offered by Cape Town. The staff is... More

The soft furnishings are not significantly different to those which existed prior to the closure ...not too bad a point as they were ok before BUT someone in their wisdom or... More

I have yet to come across such helpful and polite staff in the hospitality industry. The location is central and perfect. I would always stay at Sun square if I take a trip back to Capetown. The...

The most amazing revamp, value for money. The staff were so helpful and courteous, it made my stay wonderful. I can highly recommend this hotel. I will only consider staying there whenever I return to cape town. Also accesible to most places of interest. Thank you Sun Square for giving me a home away from home
