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 The hotel's rooms are outdated.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.

Spent five nights here with my family including teenage children. Great views from the rooms and the location is excellent with a mall across the street and lots of restaurants within walking distance. Rooms are ok but bathrooms need updating. For the Americans - no microwave, irons, or fridge in room nor ice machines.No gift shop or snacks. But, breakfast... More

I traveled to Cape Town with my mum and when we were looking for somewhere to stay we were looking for quite different types of hotels. I favour boutiquey hotels or places with some charm rather than the larger more institutional chains so I was a bit sceptical from the outset. But this hotel was a reliable, solid choice, and...

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.
