If you like a hotel with charming old-world character, you'll love this little place! High ceilings, wooden floors, elegant verandas, friendly staff and of course, comfort and cleanliness. Very centrally located and highly recommended!

We stayed our first night in Cape Town at this hotel. Its a very cozy hotel, the room was very small but its a great value for money (breakfast was good and included in the price). The hotel is centrally located. It is walking distance to the best dining options in Cape Town and only a couple mins walk to... More

We discovered this hotel through FNB's rewards program and used that, along with TripAdvisor, as our proxy for judging the quality. This hotel just didnt live up to expectation. We could not sleep because of the noisy wooden flooring and the constant movement of guests. Bring ear plugs if you want to stay at this hotel.

If you like a small, personally run hotel in a charming old Victorian building, and at a very reasonable price, I think you'll love Fritz Hotel. The location just off Kloof St. is great. It's close to several restaurants and shops, and you can even walk into the city centre, yet it's quiet, apparently safe, and has great views. If... More

Fritz is our preferred hotel in the Kloof street area and wonderfully central. However, the signs are all around that it needs some maintenance and TLC. Broken window latch and curtain rails in our room. Great breakfast served as late as you like.

I booked this hotel expecting the worse, however, I was quite surprise in the most positive way. They were over booked my room when I arrived, therefore they gave me an upgraded room. This room had it's own courtyard and extras within the room. The hotel was close to many local restaurants and tourist attractions. The hotel was quite and... More

This Hotel was selected for me by a group that I was professionally linked to. I was to stay 3 nights. It was located within walking distance of many venues in the city. The first night, I awoke with bug bites. When asked if the remaining nights could be refunded, the owner requested he see visible bug bites before refunding... More

I think we all agree that the worst thing that can happen to a hotel guest is to be bitten by bugs when sleeping! The accusation of this guest that she was bitten by a bug at night was therefore taken extremely serious by everybody at The Fritz Hotel. We checked the bed and linen carefully, but could not find...

We had a lovely stay at the Fritz Hotel. The rooms are basic but well looked after and great value for money, perfect for a more budget conscious holiday. We had a great view of Table Mountain from our room. The staff were always friendly and willing to help. The location is perfect; a safe walking distance to Kloof and... More
