We moved from Hotel Westin to Ritz and boy oh boy.. at first we were happy about choosing this hotel because the view was really amazing but then slowly we started to realize that the AC wasn't working properly and also the door locks were weak. The staff weren't really the friendliest people one would come across. I spent around... More

This hotel is well located at Sea Point area, with a great sea, Signal Hill and Cape Town Stadium, which is the only positive thing about it. Don't trust about the images that the hotel provides on their website, they are not how real rooms look like. Rooms are very old style,very bad smells comes from the bathroom plumbing. At... More

This hotel is centrally located in Cape Town and is within walking distance the the Sea Point Promenade, which is a bonus. The staff were friendly and helpful, but it is not enough to say it was a great hotel, the hotel is in desperate need of a makeover, the lifts, carpets, curtains , bathrooms and windows all need to...

I have to agree that it's kind of tired and run down, but please don't let that fool you. I stayed in the hotel for the first two days of my holiday. The bed was comfy, the staff friendly and the public areas of the hotel are pretty new and clean looking. I didn't eat there, so I can't comment... More

Firstly, please dont go on the name of the hotel. This is definitely no where related to the better known Ritz Carlton. The hotel has been the worst i have seen in my many years of traveling. Worst then few in Bangkok. Our ordeal started with the hotel address being difficult to find. The locals as well as taxi services... More

Great location and great price, (not necessarily value though!), and that pretty much sums up the positives, whereas negatives are a few more to mention; general old/tired feeling to all hotel areas, lifts, rooms, bathrooms etc with a weird odour permeating all, (resembling urine?!). Breakfast also not great, and if not included as per my case and great price I... More

I stayed here for 11 days in February-March 2015. It was a working trip, with a few days available for sightseeing. Positive: 1) Very friendly staff. From the second I arrived, I was greeted by friendly staff in the lobby and reception. They were very helpful with everything from repairing clothes, booking cabs, arranging trips, storing luggage, describing the local... More

Stayed in the Ritz hotel for a month. The hotel does need an upgrade to match the beautiful views you have from your hotel room window! I stayed on the 15th floor and the view was magnificent! The hotel is clean and service is above par! I would like to personal thank Carmen and Dorothy from the reception who made... More

Effortless check in with a cool drink on a very hot day made for a great welcome-this hotel, the first of the tall hotels built in C.T over twenty five years ago may have seen better days -on a windy night on the 20th floor the windows rattled, but at least you could open them...but it's an architectural landmark We...
