It's pretty good but I was here on business and the internet is rubbish. Couldn't upload or download anything, not only was the internet bad but it's a con as they sold me 5 gig and after using 500mb they applied a limit to me so I could only use 100mb per day, it kept going down, oh and did...

The City Lodge V&A Waterfront was a pleasant experience and a real joy. The hotel is very well situated and not far from all the shopping malls. The rooms are very cosy and has everything you need.

Nothing wrong, for an overnight business trip it is functional. Professional staff, clean and .... well functional. I have stayed here a couple of times. One terrible trip with a noisily extended family across the hall and a recent uneventful trip. Not a holiday spot unless on a budget. Look it is close the the V&A

The City Lodge V&A Waterfront is in fact a fair distance from the actual Waterfront. It is probably about a mile to the Waterfront shops and restaurants, but not an unpleasant walk in nice daytime weather. The hotel was clean, the room nice although fairly compact. Nice that the bathroom had a bath and a shower. Some of the rooms... More

The hotel is very confortable and warm due to the traditional style. Everything is clean (bathroom and bedroom), and the hotel is general. The wifi is not free but it is cheap and good. The breakfast has many options including fresh fruit. The gym is very small but it has a couple of good machines for indoor running. The location... More

Typical 'business hotel' in great central area of Cape Town. Rooms were average sized and was neat and clean. It had a full bathroom better than most 3-star hotels in it's class. Breakfast was fantastic. I arrived late and decided to have supper at the hotel restaurant which was disappointing (same as other City Lodges I have stayed at) -... More

My wife and I booked in at the end of the Easter weekend, immediately after the Two Ocean's marathon. A group of fellow Zimbabweans had been staying here, whilst we were with family friends in Somerset West. It was great to be within walking distance of the Waterfront, and the stadium, as we took a few early morning 'recovery' runs... More

Great value. Newer hotel, good breakfast selection, polite staff. Clean rooms, tiny TV though! Nice to have tea and coffee in the room. Travel desk was helpful, however sent us to a Malay restaurant which was closed on Sunday! Will recommend this hotel!

Good basic hotel with comfy rooms and nice breakfast. It's a bit noisy if your room faces the road to the Waterfront so try to get a room numbered 50 or higher on each floor. In walking distance to the Waterfront along a safe road and to the city centre so well situated.

It was a pleasure of staying at the City lodge V&A Waterfront last weekend. Rooms were comfortable. Front desk staff were very accommodating and all round, it was a friendly atmosphere. I would definitely be staying there again.
