Wonderful hotel - the only glitch in the whole event was the elevator was under repair when we arrived. Thankfully it was fixed a few hours later. The service was extremely efficient effective friendly and professional from the cleaning crew to the smiling desk attendants to the travel coordinator and the bartender. Not bad.

My husband and I stayed at the Victoria and Alfred hotel as part of our recent tour of South Africa. The hotel has the absolute best location of any in Cape Town. It is in the heart of the V&A waterfront with easy access to loads of shops, restaurants and attractions. The ferry to Robben Island was just minutes from... More

We were twice in Cape Town and both times we chose the Victoria & Alfred Hotel. The hotel has everything we needed for our 2-3 nights stay. The room was comfortable and the restaurant and lobby support our stay well. The beauty of V&A is the location which allow the guests to access to what-ever-is-needed, shopping, dining, or even hop-on-hop-off... More

One of the best rooms I have ever stayed in. Although the room was a little small, it was very well furnished, modern and clean, and to top it all off, we had a patio with a hut tub, and further still whilst in said tub spectacular views of table mountain. The hotel itself if perfectly situated close right on... More

We booked a Piazza Facing King room with breakfast. The room and bathroom were very clean. The shower was great. The mattress and pillows were comfortable. The price was affordable.... More

We spent 3 days 2 nights at the place, and we really liked the hotel. We were fascinated by its fabulous location. Waterfront was only a few steps away and city sightseeing bus departing point was also very close from it. Room was very clean and comfortable, but slightly(very very slightly) less spacious than we imagined(maybe because we were assigned... More
