4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We just spent 8 nights at the hotel in two stays. The first 5 nights were in a top-floor room with skylights that gave little view, but we didn't mind. The room was pretty peaceful, facing away from the harbour and mountain. The bed was comfortable and the shower had good water pressure. A comfortable stay. For the second stay,... More

Victoria & Alfred Hotel: August, 2015 We stayed five nights at the V & A Hotel in Cape Town. This proved to be a perfect location for us. Being in the heart of the V & A Waterfront, this hotel offered a great variety of dining and shopping options within easy (and safe) walking distance. A walk to the central... More

The hotel is pecfect located at most central place at the waterfront. Our room was nice and tidy, maybe a bit oversized compared to furniture's. . Staff is friendly and service minded. The place can be recomend as a perfect location for a few days in town. You would have all good restaurants and shopping possibilities right on your doorstep

The hotel is located in the best possible place, right on the waterfront, you step out and are immediately surrounded by life and activity. That unfortunately is also its downfall. It feels as if you are constantly surrounded by people, the hotel does not feel like it is separate from the shopping complex built into it. That would be alright,... More

I spent a week at the V&A Waterfront hotel, and I must say it's not as good as i thought it would be. The room is spacious enough for two, and the bathroom too. The view is great, but if you're staying on the 3rd floor be sure to be careful when walking around in your room as you could... More

I had stayed in this hotel for 6 nights last week with my wife and a 3 yr old baby during our vacation in Cape town. The hotel is right across the Victoria wharf mall. The rooms assigned to us was facing the harbor and the Table Mountain. From the 1st time I contacted the reservations team they had been... More

Spent another 10 days here this spring. Still loved it! Room was great, completely updated bathroom. I must say that the bathroom was very impressive. The location is perfect. Right in the waterfront area and very safe. All the restaurants, shopping and nightlife is right outside your hotel but it is very quiet at night. Staff at the reception is... More

This is a well located modern hotel on the V&A Waterfront. It offered a good breakfast buffet but we did not dine here. Rooms are brightly decorated with lovely big beds. Ours did not overlook the water, but those that do must be nice. Breakfast can be taken on the terrace by the harbour.

Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. We booked a superior double room, when we arrived we were told we had a "lovely" loft room. Not sure I agree with the description. The loft room has small windows in the ceiling, it does have a great view, but you have to stick your head out of the window to see... More
