Large bright clean apartment, well equipped with large comfortable bed. Secure underground parking. Approx 15min walk to the VA waterfront as not actually in the waterfront. Water taxi also an enjoyable option. A much cheaper option than staying in the waterfront. Pick up and return from/to the airport same price as taxi and definitely worth booking. Taxi to the waterfront... More

Very secure accommodation at a very convenient location in Cape Town. We stayed in a one bedroom apartment on the fourth floor in August 2014. The apartment was very clean with all the basic amenities. The best thing about Canal Quays is that it is very well situated to reach almost any destination within the city and surrounding areas in... More

We stayed at Canal Quay Apartments in late January 2014 in two stays of a week in total. We spent five nights in a one bedroom executive apartment on a lower floor, and then had two nights in a normal one bedroom apartment on the fifth floor.

We were pleasantly surprised, arriving at this location. It's not well known among local taxicabs so it took a little time to find it. The guidepost should be the Westin, which is near to the Convention Center. The building is very secure and the units are actually condos. They include a full kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. Also included... More

I'm sorry to have to write such a poor review for this place. The apartment itself was actually quite nice, and very clean. However, there were just too many downsides. The wifi did not work in the room ever. The front door opens onto a balcony with no windows, so the wind rattles and bangs the door all night. Since... More
