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

I've stayed at the City Lodge quite a few times now and all in all, compared with other hotels, it is.... ok+. Clean rooms and friendly staff, as well as a very diverse breakfast buffet makes it a recurring choice for our accommodation needs when we stay in Cape Town. Also, the location is fantastic in terms of getting to... More

I has to shoot down to Cape Town on the 6th November for some business, it was at short notice. All the usual places I stay were either fully booked or were just ridiculously priced. The City Lodge was fine for the one night I stayed there, the staff is friendly and the rooms and functional with a good variety... More

Great position, friendly staff, clean rooms. Small gym and pool. At entrance to V&A Waterfront. Good buffet breakfast. Even room numbers face the road, uneven to the back, which may impact your sleep quality. I prefer the rooms facing away from the street.n

If you want to stay in a safe neighborhood in Cape Town without spending too much money but also stay in a very good hotel with good service, look no further, City Lodge is a good choice as it's in V&A district of Cape Town and the room and amenities are great.

This hotel would be great for business clients but not ideal for holiday makers as it's a little bit further out from the waterfront than neighboring hotels which meant a taxi back in the evenings, however it is a walkable route during the day. There is a tourist desk who are pretty helpful, however we booked our tours at the... More

We had no expectations of the hotel, and were very nicely surprised to find such a well situated and good quality hotel. The staff were extremely helpful, and we were able to book any trips with the travel advisor. The rooms were more than spacious, and well stocked, with a lovely ambience. The breakfasts were superb, and gave us a... More

This hotel wa a surprise package - so close to fabulous shops, restaurants, the waterfront and harbour. Seals right out the front of the hotel. Service great, rooms large and comfortable - couldn't ask for more. I didn't have a room with a beautiful view but others travelling with me did. We ate in the restaurant on a couple of... More

I've stayed at this property in June and July 2014 for a couple of days each time. I remember very well the friendly welcome all the time and the helpful staff.

The checkin was quick, reception helpful. Staff very friendly and efficient overall. I was assured that my room would be quiet and it was. It is in the perfect position for the Waterfront and all activities there and located to many downtown government and business offices. Breakfast buffet great but service slow in one evening. Maybe it is what you... More
