I stayed at Southern Sun Cape Sun in October 2014. Positive items first. The rooms were always very clean. The concierge staff were very friendly and helpful, whether with arranging taxis or suggestions for places to visit or restaurants to eat at. The shuttle to the V&A Waterfront is an excellent service. The gym was well maintained and stocked. The... More

I liked the location of the facility, especially my room which was facing the Table Mountain. The vehicle parking service was superb. The room was thoroughly cleaned daily and you could feel comfortable coming back from a hard working day. The food and service at the restaurant was superb and I would definately come back with my family on holiday... More

I will start by saying that the staff and service is in general "excellent". The breakfast is a wonderful feast too! Well done. The views form the higher floor rooms and the elevators is superb. The downsides are several in number: - shockingly poor WiFi service and almost non-existent in the room (2505). AlwaysOn is not a serious option for... More

this hotel has excellent views of Table Mountain if you get a room facing that way - worth asking for. The rooms themselves are quite big if a little tired. Breakfast is an ok buffet with a lot of other people - this is a big hotel. Service good. With the rand at low levels, it's extremely cheap.

Southern Sun is a solid hotel in a good location - nothing extraordinary, but friendly and reliable. However, they lose a start for the remarkably inconsistent wifi. However, it's very close to the waterfront and a solid breakfast buffet.

Sun Cape is quite nice hotel for business use right in the centre of Cape Town. Good service. The gym could be a bit bigger. When booking a room from here, ask for mountain view. Spectacular! Sea view is quite nice as well.

This hotel is centrally located a few blocks from the convention center. The shuttle services are very reliable running every hour to the waterfront, with a stop at a "sister" Southern Sun hotel which is just across the street from the convention center. What this means is that convention goers can avoid taxis. Return trips are on the half hour.... More
