Can't say enough for the staff who went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. However the facility provides it's challenges. While it's a convenient location, it's not an appealing one. A little dreary and uninviting with quite a bit of street noise. There are about 10 steps up to navigate luggage before reaching the one lift. The... More

I had a great 4 days staying at the Parliament Hotel before moving to another (more expensive) hotel at the start of an Intrepid tour. Without fail, every member of staff was friendly and helpful. I had a massive king bed, comfortable room, great shower (over the bath). WiFi was far faster that the more expensive hotel, everything was handled... More

Unfortunately we didn't have a good experience with this hotel. Our room was simple and ok but the bathroom was not cleaned at all. Also the towels were dirty. The stairs to reach the rooms were totally decrepit and dirty. The breakfast was good but it could have been better. Despite all that the position was ok and the stuff... More

We stayed 5 days at the Parliament Hotel and were very pleased with the facilities and staff. Antonio was very helpful and took time to answer all our questions regarding the city. Our room was very good; mattress was fine, room big enough and clean. Breakfast was very good and more then sufficient. The hot part of the breakfast was... More

Good Value for the price paid. I had a nice stay in a budget hotel suiting the goals of my trip. Would visit again if I ever go to cape town once more. Although situated in the town centre the hotel offered an ok stay even if it needed a bit of refurbishing

I had a great experience at the hotel and very much appreciated the advice of the front desk, as they made reservations for a tour I did. The location is also very convenient, and the adjoining restaurant was very good.

The room was spacious and clean with a comfortable bed. The staff were helpful and friendly during our stay. This isn't a spanking new hotel but it's still well-maintained. The bathroom maybe is a bit too small but that was okay with us. Perhaps, the shower curtain needs a change. We picked this hotel for in-room wifi and they didn't... More

This is a perfect city hotel for tourists and business travellers. It's well located in the centre, close to the District Six Museum, the Company Gardens and Long Street. It's not in a very modern state but it is very well maintained and clean, the rooms are big and offer wifi as well as international outlets in case you don't... More

Staff are very friendly and the breakfast is good. Unfortunately the rooms face the street and are noisy at night. the location is not great for holiday makers. if you don't have a car you are lost as you are a long way from the waterfront. The room can do with an upgrade. just another picture on the wall might... More
