I wish we could have stayed longer. It was an awesome experience. The apartment is beautifully equipped it has everything a person may need. It was definitely a good decision. The view was breathe taking. and everything was just perfect. I will definitely come again.

This is the 3rd time I have stayed here and its always great. Apartment for a couple with a young child is perfect. They clean, close to Waterfront and amenities with allocated parking under the apartment. Only downside is a noisy site due to highway

Great place to stay. Has everything you need as fully self contained. Close to Clock Tower and local attractions. Staff friendly and helpful. Note however the building is not all operated by same management. My friends who booked in a different section did not have as good an experience as I did.

We are here for our guests and if you prefer to be in a different apartment type or to be right at the Waterfront, we have apartments that tick these two boxes. We hope you will... More

We walked each day into the touristly areas, but WATCH YOUR STEP on some of the uneven pavement/sidewalk areas. I had a bad fall one day on a piece of sidewalk sticking straight up out of the ground! There is a water taxi below the apartments that you can take part way into Capetown, but you still have to walk... More
