My wife and I stayed for 5 nights on a Smartrip tour. I expected a rather drab, impersonal lodging and was pleasantly surprised. We are experienced travelers (visits to 90 countries) and found more selection and quality items on the Breakfast menu than in any other foreign (exclude Las Vegas) country we have visited. My wife, the antique hunter, scored... More

Located in the convenient downtown section, a short walk from the "Company gardens" promenade and several attractions. Rooms are a bit dated and lack some amenities that Americans take for granted (like an ice bucket or fridge in the room, or an iron, etc.). The buffet breakfast is beautifully arranged and wide variety (as is the dinner buffet at the... More

Overall an Excellent Stay at the Hotel which was in walking distance of my Company’s Offices. Staff was friendly and eager to provide service at the highest level. The food was of high quality and the menu catered to all people’s liking.

The Hotel CAPE SUN provides such great service to it guests. I am so pleased to state that I have never stayed in a hotel like this. Next time when I go to Cape Town I will do my best to be back in the CAP SUN hotel!

I stayed for 4 nights in this hotel. The Hotel is located centrally in cape town. Has good shopping area in vicinity. But, I didn't find any fancy in the hotel. The hotel's rooms are outdated. After taking shower the water was coming out of Bathroom and the carpet got wet. Not a great hotel.

Terrific hotel staff: friendly, upbeat, helpful and professional. Rooms: Comfortable with fabulous and powerful showers. Each room has a view of the sea OR Table Mountain. The elevators provide you with a view of the city/sea or Table Mountain, because they are located on the outside of the building. Food: Excellent: Good assortment; they even have smoothies made to order... More

My husband and I stayed here from July 9th to13th as part of a tour group (Smart Tours), visiting South Africa. Hotel offered amenities of a first class hotel. The breakfast buffet was exceptional and each morning we were serenaded by a pianist which offered a touch of elegance to an otherwise delicious breakfast. The hotel staff were helpful and... More

This hotel is excellent. The rooms and the hotel environment were immaccutaley clean. The staff were incredibly helpful and always happy to go the extra mile. The breakfast was great, lots of choice but the restaurant did not seem big enough for the size of the hotel and so breakfast was often accompanied with queuing, both for a table and... More

Cape Sun in centrally located and reachable from any other place. Walking distance to the Waterfront, parliament and other places of interest. The room provides all that one needs on business and a mini bar fridge to keep food fresh.
