We stayed there 3 nights, 2 in the loft rooms and were upgraded for the 3rd night to the new renovated room. The loft one is bit small but perfect if you travel around most of the day, the difference is mainly the view from normal window and kip-pi one. Breakfast is absolutely great, team is warm and welcoming, walking... More

This hotel is located in one of the best spots in Cape Town for a tourist to stay - in the center of the vibrant V&A Waterfront, with many types of stores and restaurants in easy and safe walking distance. You are a very short walk away from the ferry that takes you to Robben Island as well as other... More

As far as the rooms are concerned, especially on the third floor, this hotel is similar to a Hampton Inn - very comfortable, clean, quiet, and with every amenity. However! ---- go downstairs for breakfast! You'll be blown away by two things - first, the food and the variety, and then the view of the harbor, the city, and Table... More

I obtained a last minute very good rate (via tripadvisor) for a loft room at the V&A. I guess the the rate was good as renovations were ongoing, athough the only sign of this was a sign in the lobby, I did not see or hear anything. My room had clearly been renovated and bathrooms were great. No view as... More

We spent the first part of our honeymoon here. The location is perfect! We were bummed out that we didn't have a table mountain view but that's how it was booked through our travel agent. We had a beautiful view of the harbor. The restaurant downstairs was delicious as well. The room was clean and service was attentive. We would... More

The hotel is beautiful and in a fantastic location in Cape Town. Our bedroom overlooked Table Mountain and the harbour which was the perfect view to start your morning. The staff where so helpful, when we arrived they advised that we should go to table mountain straight away as the ‘cloth’ would be on for the next couple of days.... More

When breakfast starts with a dozen oysters and a glass of champagne, what can go wrong? My wife and I are very grateful to the helpful staff who dried our soaking clothes.
