We stayed 5 days and were very happy with this hotel. Situation and views were excellent, Centrally located in Cape Town with a free shuttle bus service to the waterfront was most welcome. The staff were efficient, friendly and most helpful. Breakfast service was good as was the lounge food. The rooms were comfortable, spacious and clean although slightly tired... More

its a good hotel in the heart of the city. everything is at a walking distance. water front is a bit far though. i like the glass lift .market is dead really early in the evening. its not safe to roam outside in dark as hotel security says.

My wife and I cruised from Cape Town, South Africa back to Southampton UK from 24th April to 17th May. Prior to the cruise we were booked into the Southern Sun Cape Sun Hotel for 3 nights. The hotel was spotless and the staff very friendly and most helpful. The food, we decided to have the buffet, was excellent, plentiful... More

I enjoyed my recent stay at the Southern Sun Cape Sun. I did not chose the hotel but after my stay would probably come back if in town. The location is good, although on winter or at nights there are some nearby streets which do not look that safe. The hotel itself is pretty decent, biz standard style. The food... More

The staff are friendly, the hotel has a great atmosphere and the restaurant and bar is highly recommended. You will love the trip up to your room in the glass elevators! My room was spacious, clean, and had modern... More

Had the pleasure of staying in Southern Sun Cape Sun in Capetown for two nights end Feb'14. The hotel is very conveniently located in The Mall area of Cape Town which is where you would want to be. Surrounding the hotel are a number of restaurants that you can savor good South African cuisine and Green Market Square is just... More

This hotel doesn't have on-site parking but you arrive and the valet takes over and give you a receipt so when you want your car back they bring it to you (for a daily fee). What a pleasure, it was efficient and the staff friendly. Check-in was smooth and quick, then into those outside lifts which are something else. Room... More

Came for a congress. They took care of their guests. service was good everything was as expected. It was definitely a five-star hotel. They have a very nice elevator and you can see the whole view of Cape Town.
