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.

My fiance stayed here for a total of 6 nights. Overall this is a good base to explore Cape Town. Close to all the restaurants and shops on Long Street, bus stop is right outside (to V&A Waterfront and Airport bus, otherwise a 40 min walk). Table Mountain is just a 10 minute drive and the Hop on Hop Off... More

Thanks for your review. Two remarks: Whereas reception indeed closes at 8 pm there is the night-guard on duty after that and we offer 24 hour check-in service. Secondly, I reckon that our breakfast is top quality. The best available fruit go into the fruit salad, we offer the best meat available like Parma ham, air-dried beef, smoked Kudu, etc... More

We lived in Fritz for 9 nights. It was a very pleasant expereience. The owner is a fantanstic person. Every evening when we came back to the hotel exhaustedly, Arthur (the owner) always kindly made tea/coffee for us. Then, we sat in the living room and chatted with other travelers. Thanks to the evening tea, we made lots of new... More

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
