My good experience with the Fritz started even before I arrived. The staff was pleasant, helpful and very welcoming over the phone and e-mails and proved to be even better in real life. They were waiting for me to arrive, no strict check-in orders regulations. They helped me plan my short visit so I would get to see the best... More

The price is well worth it. The location can't be beat (it's close to everything in the Cape Town city area). The breakfast is plentiful and healthy - not just a carbohydrate bomb like many others provide. The staff are friendly and helpful. Washing and ironing are promptly and inexpensively done. There's as good a free WiFi internet as you'll... More

Spent a pleasant evening here in December. The rooms are comfortable, well-furnished and clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The hotel is close to the trendy Long Street/ Kloof Street area and within easy walking distance of the Gardens and CBD. A small breakfast buffet is served on a lovely shaded patio. The Fritz has some drawbacks though. Parking... More

We have stayed at the Fritz on several occasions over the last few years. It has a perfect location.....easy walking distance to just about anywhere in the CBD (the Waterfront is also do-able), surrounded by great restaurants and cafes, simple access if you're driving but, for all of this, it's in a street so quiet that you could be out...

I had a last minute business trip and the B&B where I normally stay was not available. The room rate was not bad and at the time the reviews also looked OK. The outside is freshly painted so looks reasonable at first glance. The hotel had a flyer that said an early breakfast could be arranged. However when I tried... More

Our room at the Fritz Hotel offered a great value for the price. We were looking for a basic room with easy access to local sites and restaurants and that is exactly what we got. The hotel is just around the corner from Kloof street and was easy walking distance to everything we needed. The room itself was modest but... More

This is locate in The Gardens area, which is also worth exploring. It's very close to Long Street, and about thirty minutes walking distance to the V and A wharf.... More

The Fritz was the start of our South African visit and it was a perfect place. We stayed upstairs overlooking Lion's Head with a balcony which I highly recommend as it is beautiful and quieter. The bed was very comfortable and waking up to that view amazing! The minute we walked downstairs for breakfast we were greeted and offered coffee... More

The hotel is in a great location, an easy walk to Kloof St, and has available parking for your car. It is on a quiet street, and felt secure and cosy with a gate and courtyard. We were upgraded to a garden room, which was lovely. The building is old but nicely appointed. The owner, Arthur, was warm and welcoming,... More

The Fritz Hotel great location. Great staff but desperately needs a cleanup. Carpets need cleaning drapes and curtains need to be washed and hung properly. General upkeep of rooms can be improved. has great potential.
