We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Cape Town. The rooms are ok and also the bathroom but they are not great. It's clean and spacious enough. Breakfast is a bit poor, and if you want to have more than you have to pay. It's a good place to visit the main attractions in Cape Town, it's close to... More

Very comfortable hotel with friendly staff. Got an amazing deal compared to the rate advertised. Both the hotel and restaurant staff were welcome and accommodating. The only black mark is the elevator which needs the door timing to be fixed. Thanks to the hotel for allowing the late check out which allowed a little extra time for exploration around the... More

I just got back from a 5 night stay at La Splendida (extended from 3 nights mid stay). Given the price I paid for a suite (e.g. MUCH less than that shown on the “Daily rate” board outside the hotel), I’d say I got an amazing deal. The location is great, right on the promenade (if you like a morning... More

This hotel is very cold and unaccomadating. The staff are not very helpful. You have to park across the road and take in all your own luggage. They do not help. They offer free bicycles which is more of a health and safety hazard with flat tyres, bad breaks and iron seats. They do not greet and lack people skills!!... More

This hotel came highly recommended but I found it a little disappointing when compared to other hotels in the area. I stayed for one night on business and below are my summations. PROS: Great location. Off street parking (although I'm not sure if it's any more secure than street parking). Clean rooms. Comfy bed. Good breakfast. CONS Small room. No... More

My wife and I had a great 7 night stay at this hotel. Everyone was very helpful and accommodating. This hotel is in a great location. We rented or (hired) a car and it was perfect it was a minute drive to the V&A waterfront. The restaurant was very good as well.

Almost no sound insulation in 1st floor "sea view" rooms. Restaurant blaring awful house music at night below the rooms. Requested a new room and they wouldn't accommodate or offer any sort of help other than saying "wait for it to close at 11pm"!

The drains on the ground floor terrace eating area and in the rear parking exude a disgusting smell. It has a lot to do with how the kitchen waste is dealt with. The tar in the small car park is coated in grease. What pity as it brings down the otherwise high standard encountered during a pleasant stay.

We got in late and they were super easy going about it. They have really cheap secure parking which in Cape Town is a must. The room was really big and very clean!! Which is amazing, as I am pretty picky when it comes to cleanliness. You are right across the street from the promenade Boardwalk which is pretty much... More

Pleasant hotel with comfy beds. No water in the fridge which I thought the rooms should have at the price you pay - should have filled the fridge with complimentary waters. Lovely view, great restaurant with a stunning vibe. Lovely friendly staff from reception to the ladies that cleaned the rooms.
