On our first trip to Cape Town, we had been advised by friends to stay near the waterfront but we joined our delegation to be at Hotel Le Venodome and really enjoyed the clean and comfortable rooms. Fabulous breakfast and great service. The travel desk attendants were helpful and arranged for private tours with guide to all the local attractions... More

We spent a Saturday night here having found a great rate on booking.com. We are attracted to boutique hotels. Le Vendome is actually quite a large hotel. It seems to be been the subject of a very significant upgrade. The rooms are top class, in our experience, the service was faultless, and the breakfast buffet was top class. The location,... More

My husband and I stayed here with another couple for three nights after spending a week in a beautiful beach villa in Hermanus, so we were not particularly looking forward to being back in a city. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at this lovely hotel just a short walk from the sea in Sea Point or a short... More

We had a lovely stay here. We were here to discover Cape Town and this hotel was perfect. The free courtesy bus into Victoria and Alfred Dock was great as it meant we did not need to park...and could have a drink or two! The service was absolutely superb, the staff could not do enough for us, anything from booking... More

The Hotel was a dissapointment due to the fact that it is tired and old. It is outdated, especially the beds are old and the air conditioning is very loud. The pool is not heated so too cold to swim. The staff is frendly and helpful but they have a strange system with the mini bar whare you have to... More

Dear Friends, I have lost money in the room which was kept in the safe. On Informing the hotel I should say after a month I have been given a report which states that they did lie detector test for all employees and the hotel would not take responsibility. I am sure I lost the money from the hotel which... More

This is a first rate Hotel in the Sea Point area of Cape Town. If you are wanting to stay in a place with great service and well appointed rooms you will not be disappointed. The location is perfect for getting to Table Mountain, the southern Cape, and Lions head. The hotel has free parking for your rental car and... More

We stayed at the Le Vendome after 47 days at sea. The hotel let us check in early (9:00 am) and we would recommend this hotel with no hesitation to anyone. The included breakfast was the best we've ever experienced for a "breakfast included" feature.

Hotel was great, and in quiet side street in Seapoint. Short walk to the seafront although too rocky to swim with no beach, just rocks. 100m away from main road through Seapoint which was not an area we felt comfortable in after dark, a little seedy. Hotel runs free shuttle bus to V&A Waterfront every two hours (only a five... More

This small boutique hotel is one of the nicest we've ever stayed at. The personalized service they provided was excellent in every way. Every member of the staff went out of their way to make sure that all of our needs were met. They offer a wonderful hot buffet breakfast every morning, served in beautiful surroundings by a gracious staff.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hôtel Le Vendôme is the realisation of one man's dream and, in its own way, brings the grand opulence of Paris to Cape Town. As it happens from time to time, the standards are set by a frequent user of hotels rather than an hotelier. The difference is perceptible and it shows in the passionate attention to detail, the lavishness of the decor and the remarkable personal service from the attentive staff. As you pass through the hotel, you glide through Paris: Salon Le Concorde, Rive Gauche (the gastronomique restaurant), Le Cygne (for a lighter meal by the pool), Le Louvre (a magnificent suite on the executive floor), Le Petit Palais (the perfect description for the best suite in the building) and so on. Every guest room is as chic as they come with internet and fax connections and many have balconies overlooking the lively Sea Point Promenade, the ocean and Robben Island. Cape Town is all the richer for its presence. ... more   less
