Subsequent to our last trip to Cape Town I had to go back there for a business trip and did not hesitate to book at the Ritz hotel...it is great to see that they are constantly improving guest facilities and I believe are in the planning stages of a major upgrade..which will include a generator to cope with loadshedding....👍👍 The...

The accomodation is very reasonable, clean, good food, great lobby. The room we were in was next to the fire escape so the room smelt of smoke, the bathroom was a bit shabby - but for a stay was comfortable, clean , great staff and good food. A great place to stay for convenience and cost.

This hotel is a run down, out-dated hotel. The bathroom was horrendous, with the added luxury of a decaying shower curtain, and the room felt dirty, the breakfast was poor and so was the staff. We landed up staying one night and checked out the next day. As a result of booking through otel.com, I was not refunded 1cent, even... More

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
