We have just returned from a family trip to Cape Town. This was a last minute trip and we did struggle to get accommodation. The hotel is in a good location, its on the edge of the V&A waterfront, in my opinion I wouldn't want to stay any further away from the waterfront. We were able to walk in and... More

This City Lodge is a safe 10 minute walk from the V & A and is close to all major freeway routes. The parking is secure and breakfast is available as an extra.

Our experience with City Lodge V&A Waterfront was positive from beginning to end. We were only here a night but on early arrival, were greated by the friendly staff and found a room in spite of being there 5 hours prior to the official check-in time. The hotel is conveniently located within easy walking distance to the V&A waterfront. The... More

Great location close to central waterfront. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast is very good. I Was disappointed however with my room near gym and pool, very noisy and unable to change rooms. I would return.

I have stayed in a number of City Lodge Hotels in South Africa. It is safe to say that the City Lodge Hotel Group is one of my preferred brands when it comes to accommodation in South Africa.

Hotel was in a great location, very close to the waterfront only about 10 min walk from hotel. Great breakfast. Room was clean and very comfortable. Only drawback was no frig in the room. Very friendly and helpful staff. Will use again on next visit.

Perfect stay over for a business trip to Cape Town. The room is spacious and very comfortable, there is wifi if required, it's a short walk to the V&A, and the breakfast is good. High quality location and service will keep you coming back
