We were booked in this hotel for the weekend of the Cape Town Jazz Festival. The hotel is in a good spot closer to the Cape Town ICC and to all other nice places in Cape Town. But the rooms are terrible and they Smell something I can't explain. The beds are bad and shower bad. Honestly I couldn't find... More

I chose to book in the centre & was glad I did. The hotel is well located & not far from many of the main attractions in the city & Long Street with it's bars & cafes. The staff especially reception were extremely helpful & friendly. Good choices at breakfast Top floor rooms have views of the waterfront & ocean

first hotel in a month's tour of South Africa. This place is so bad that it makes every other accommodation look wonderful. Noisy and decaying, and the staff seem surprised that anyone would actually stay here. Don't!

The Leisure Group should either consider renovating this hotel, which is long overdue, or market it as budget/economy accommodation. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with old. My own house is old. However, service and communication etc. do not depend on the looks of a place. It, generally looks clean, better than their other 'Fountains Hotel' where dirty... More

I have no words for this place beside the fact that it is Terrible! Broken showers,Dirty toilet, Stained curtains and walls, no remote for the television, light bulb fused. It was the worse experience ever! 10 mins in this place was enough to send anybody away. Do not waste your time on it!

Although location wise this is close to the main attractions of Cape Town, this is not a great area of the CBD. It is also extremely noisy outside the hotel at night so don't expect a solid sleep. The hotel itself is somewhat rundown and the rooms are not in the best condition.

We had booked 6 nights stay at this hotel, we lasted 1 night. If that doesn't say it all then let me continue. Many amenities were not included and if COCKROACHES were on the list when I booked then I must have missed it. FIRST thing we see upon entering our room were four cockroaches in the bathroom. Went and... More

Hotel key didn't work properly; the bartender consistently returned less change than I was due and claimed not to be good at math whenever challenged; left two days early and I'm still trying to get a refund for the nights I didn't stay. There was no hot water in my room (only tepid). I've stayed in hundreds of different hotels,... More
