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...

This was my second visit i stayed in Feb 15 . last i gave this hotel top rating and again I was not disappointed ! I do not expect 5 star for a three star cost and i do expect that sometimes a kettle may not work properly !, The hotel is busy vibrant and multi international . You are... More

In 2006 I visited the restaurant at the Ritz Hotel for the first time and last week for my Mother's birthday I had the pleasure of visiting the restaurant again in the year 2015, a long 9 years after my first visit. Unfortunately, I feel that the restaurant are still operating in the year 2006. The reception of the hotel... More

This was my seventh time at the Ritz Hotel and still the best hotel in Cape Town for location an friendliness of staff, also value for money. Rooms are clean and tidy and even if you find yourself on the 20 floor there are 4 lifts so you are never left waiting. New improvement to reception area means a quick... More

We found a empty condom wrapper in our room. Immediately felt like we were in a cheap motel room. We mentioned it to reception when checking out & was told to write an e-mail to the room manager. Did that. No response. We also had to pay for ice and two glasses; and struggled to get milk sent up to... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Ritz and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Although the hotel is a little dated, it is ideally located at Sea Point, close to the V&A Waterfront, and represents excellent value for money. Our room was on the 8th floor with its twin aspects giving great views and was clean and satisfactory (although the AC was... More
