Good location just a few minutes walk to V & A Waterfront, city center, and Hop-On-Hop-Off stops. Hotel is clean and staff were very friendly and helpful. On-site food is good, and the breakfast is exceptional. Travel desk in lobby was very helpful in booking a day trip outside of Cape Town. Only negative is poor wireless internet connectivity that...

We stayed at this hotel in October at the end of a 3 week trip to SA. Great location 10 mins walk from the waterfront. However don't walk back at night but during the day it was fine.

Ideal location for those people attending events at the ICC in Cape Town. The reception needs require a frendly and more welcoming atmosphere. Convenience to the VA waterfront with wonderful eateries . The Market section there is a delight. City centre is also conveniently located.

I often stay at the City Lodge at the entrance of the waterfront. The staff are very friendly and jacked up. The rooms are good - perhaps slightly above average. Breakfast is fairly limited but you have to obviously realise you not staying at a 5 star hotel. The main gripe I have is that there is no free WiFi.... More

I spent 3 nights here recently on a business trip, and was very comfortable. The staff are very friendly - the rooms comfortable - and the breakfasts substantial. Little touches like an early morning coffee station for early departures make all the difference. Wi Fi only free for one hour - would have been great to have free wi fi... More
