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.

We booked this hotel on arrival at Cape Town airport through Tourist Information, and asked for a budget of R1400 max for two. All staff were very helpful and friendly. We arrived on a Saturday and curiously found ourselves the only couple in the dining room for dinner. The waitress was lovely and very efficient. Mysteriously the dining room was... More

We loved our stay at the City Lodge V&A Waterfront. Friendly staff, small but comfortable room and the fact that it was walking distance from the V&A Waterfront is a big bonus!!!

Pleasant stay and very friendly and efficient staff. The dry-cleaning team took extra effort in catering to my specific laundry requirements The check out took a little longer, but the staff were awesome. The restaurant serves the best homemade bread ever.
