I stayed here for 3 nights in August. It is a very small hotel. There is a restaurant right next to the reception desk. My first impression of my room was that it was cold. It is all cement with a few splashes of color. It also had a weird smell to it. My first night was miserable it was... More

Stayed here for 9 nights on business in May and loved it! Perfectly situated, great accommodation and warm hospitality. The staff could not do enough to make my stay as comfortable as possible. I hope to be back in the very near future!

We had booked 11 rooms for my colleagues and clients who had come to Cape Town for the annual Loeries. The hotel is in a great location and a stone's throw away from the beach. When we arrived in the hotel the front desk ladies were very friendly, and we were welcomed by a very bustling coffee shop downstairs. We... More

La Splendida is a small hotel directly opposite from the ocean, a lovely park, and the On/Off bus stop, about a mile from the V&A waterfront. Perfect location if you want to be a little out of the action and noise yet within 5-15 minutes of it all. The rooms are bright and clean. The people, Elana the manager, and... More

Allied Publishing's staff always stay at the La Splendid Hotel in Cape Town. We mostly stay there while on business, as we find its location central and just perfect for all our business meetings in the area. It has become a home away from home for us.

Stayed at this hotel in April 2013, I was very disappointed at the time because I wasn't aware that the hotel at the time was next door to a construction site. I returned for one night, had a lovely sea facing room. Construction has been completed, advantage of that is that the new building next door has a good steakhouse... More
