This is a wonderful hotel right on the waterfront with lovely accommodations and great food and drinks. Right on the waterfront where all the action is. Staff was outstanding and remembered our evening cocktail preferences after the first day. Easy to get out to see all the sites of the cape.

the situation of this hotel cannot be beaten. The staff are very accommodating and efficient. The breakfast was good. The lady that sits at the travel desk is wonderfully helpful, anytime we needed anything she was always quick to help including calling taxis for us daily. This hotel is so central to everything that you can walk during the day... More

The City Lodge is well situated for touring the peninsular down to the Cape of Good Hope and downtown Cape Town. There is a super little Canal Boat that takes you around the Canal right to the centre of the Victoria and Alfred complex, it stops right outside the hotel. The cost R30! The staff provide an excellent and friendly... More

Friendly staff upon arrival. Fresh juice, coffee and muffins for free. Centrally located and walking distance to City Centre and V&A Waterfront. Rooms were neat. Was worried about noise factor because of location but rooms are very sound proof. Good value for money.

I always enjoy my stays in City Lodge V&A. The rooms are spacious and confortably furnished. The staff are friendly. Located close to Harbour, V&A Waterfront, ICC as well as the City Centre. Easy access to the highway.

15 mn walk from the VA Water Front, reasonable price. Stayed 4 nights for INDABA Mining in Feb 2014. Staff helpful and very good breakfast included. Can't complain. Great hotel if you look something decent and can't afford one of the top brand close by.

If you are looking for a good base for a few days exploring Cape Town then this is the place. It is ideally situated between the V&A waterfront for all your shopping and no end of evening meal opportunities, not to mention the many boating excursions you can take, and the city centre. Both are within safe walking distance from... More

This hotel is very well located for those who wanna have fun within the Waterfront area. A walking distance to most of the malls and fun places in the Waterfront area. It is also very fairly priced. Though do not expect much from an old hotel. This is a chain from the City Lodge and after visiting two of them... More

The City Lodge V and A is perfectly situated and well geared as a business hotel. The rooms would be too small for leisure , but for a 3 star I thought it was very good value for money and had all a business traveller would need. The staff deserve a mention , the concierge arranged a taxi for me... More
