Nice small hotel in a wonderful zone of Cape Town. Perfect stay to visit Cape Town and the Cape Region. Very close to Waterfront and not far from the City center but enough far away from the crown zone. Personnel is very friendly-

Think the title says it all....Once we parked our hire car outside all the staff were helpful and friendly. Provided maps and advice. We walked loads from here but during the night a taxi was about 60r from the harbour. They have a computer and printer for use which was very useful and a small book exchange. The room was... More
