Booked a table of 10 for a year end lunch. Firstly take note, all halaal, no alcohol served, no byo. Long queues for the buffet. Quite disgusted that none of the prawns were deveined and I complained. Ended up not eating at all as I was put off by the queues. Overall very average and not a place I would... More

We arrived at 3 in the morning after 13hrs travelling. We payed for our stay although the entrance appearance left us sceptical to their 4 star rating. We got into a very dirty looking elevator,reached our floor and walk down a very soiled looking carpet passage to our room. The final straw came when we were warmly greeted by a... More

The hotel is located on a pedestrian square, which makes it a quiet place. It is only a 15 to 20-minute walk to the waterfront, 5 minutes to Long st, which is a touristy street in Cape Town with plenty of restaurants. Rooms are very spacious and quiet, with a very large desk, and nice bathroom. The breakfast buffet is... More

The only reason I am giving this review 1 points is because the elevator attendant and the staff member that drove us to the waterfront was fabulous. As for the rest, shady. This was a suggested hotel with a discounted rate for the conference I was going to be attending. To my surprise, booking with the hotel, for the conference,... More

We have stayed for 4 days at the Capetonian last May. The hotel has been recently refurbished and the room looked quite new, specially the bathroom. We stayed at a sizable two room suite on the 12th floor with a veranda spanning both rooms and from which we had a beautifull view of the Table Mountain. Location is splendid and... More

I had a group of tourists (Doctors and business people with their families) staying for two nights. They were not happy with the rooms. The location is more for the business traveler, as the hotel is in the business district of the city, close to the International Convention Centre. Walking at night from the hotel is not recommended unless in... More

Stayed there for a couple of nights. The parrot on reception died the afternoon before we arrived! Very security conscious - the staff press your floor on the lift so you can only get out of the lift on the floor selected by them. We were on the fourth floor - the room was big and fairly luxurious with plenty... More

Was at Cape Town for a conference @ the ICC. This hotel was ideally located and I could walk to and fro with ease when tired of being at ICC. Price was much lower than other similar hotels which are a bit further away. Food was not bad however some of the staff weren't that great in the dining area... More

Facilities are usually comfortable. There was no also be troubled with water around. Staff are ちcheerful, and did a polite response. Because the hotel away from the waterfront, shopping might be a little inconvenient. I was able to see the Table Mountain from the window in the room. Be careful to stay away parrot , it will bite you.
