Stayed for 5 nights, check in was smooth. Room was on 22nd floor with beautiful view of table mountain. Capetown can be very windy, so make sure all windows are locked otherwise sound of the wind is scary at night. Room was spacious, with full length mirror, study table, TV, tea coffee maker with complimentary cookies. Room has a safe... More

I stayed at this hotel for a business meeting and was impresed by the caliber of the staff as well as the facilities. The breakfast was top notch, though there was a slight problem in the restaurant the second day of my stay and the staff were quite apologetic. A recommended hotel if you want to to enjoy amenities in... More

Very central for what you want in Cape Town yet very easy access to all parts of that beautiful city!!! Staff were more than accommodating and friendly especially as it was the time of the Cape Cycle Tour and they were busy. Will stay there again!!

I stayed here during a Smartour in Feb. The hotel is nice in a central location and the staff was very nice and helpful on several occasions. My room was on the 28th floor facing the waterfront so the view was beautiful. The room had a double bed, desk, flat screen tv, and couch. The décor was a little dated... More

This hotel was perfect for our 3 night stay in Cape Town. This was apart of our SmarTours itinerary. The location is great. While downtown, there is a shuttle that goes to and picks up from the V&A waterfront every half hour. Also, it's situated two minutes from Long Street, which is a great location of many restaurants, cafe, bars... More
