The hotel is very nice with helpful friendly staffs. I do enjoy the pool in the hotel and of course all the other services it provides. The best thing about the hotel must be the quiet beautiful view. If you want to enjoy a relaxing stay, choose Bella Italia. Recommended place with reasonable price

We spent a night at Bella Italia in February 2013.It is close to the University of Cape Town and easily accessible.It was comfortable,well priced and offers secure lock up parking. It is in a quiet suburb and has a good view.Airconditioned rooms and an enclosed balcony. There was a pool on the property which we only discovered the next morning.
