I rate this hotel highly bearing in mind it is a budget hotel and not one that offers everything you don't need when staying for a day or three. Starting at reception, the staff were very helpful and friendly. They took our case up to our room on the second floor - there is no lift but the stairs are... More

We have stayed here twice - the first time in 2010 and then in May 2015. The location is great and is situated in a quiet sidestreet off lively Kloof Street where you will find supermarkets and plenty of places to eat! The staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast buffet has plenty of variety and there is a chef... More

Older hotel, Friendly staff, double beds in clean room with safe. Grocery store and restaurants and some landmarks only a block away as well as a view of table mountain and a park. Swimming pool. Excellent breakfast. Quiet rooms with outdoor terrace to dry laundry after a long trip.

I stayed for 2 nights in Lady Hamilton in Cape Town and had an amazing experience. The hotel is in an interesting part of the city but is internally located. The quality and variety of the breakfast was a pleasant surprise. However, I was most taken by the excellent service at the reception - the Lady Hamilton staff really made... More

The front desk staff was very friendly and the buffet breakfast was fine. The rooms were clean. From there it goes downhill. From the rip in the bedroom curtain to the furniture in the lounge which have seen many, many better days, the hotel is missing out on an opportunity to attract as it is reasonably well situated. Stayed there... More

This hotel is very dated and in need of some upgrades. The location is pretty good - close to some great restaurants and bars but not too close to the tourist spots. The room wasn't as comfortable as we would have liked and the windows wouldn't lock which was a bit of a security concern as we were on the... More

Retuning from an over landing trip, the hostel accommodation offered, was not good, so we looked close by and found this quaint place. It may not be the Ritz, but the staff were friendly and cheerful, the food fresh and tasty. The rooms were basic but adequate. We found it easy to access the city and in a quiet safe... More

Who knew that Cape Town & TripAdvisor could have such old, ugly,untidy, dilapidated accommodation listed as an option. Let alone the poor location, but the messy carpets, unprofessional staff who were not coherent and couldn't generate an invoice for payment for parking in the basement flooded and with lumps of concrete as the ground. They also couldn't advise on how... More
