We stayed at this hotel last week during our first trip to Cape Town. We didn't get a hotel room, we got an apartment! It even had a washer/dryer which we were so happy about since we had spent time camping in Botswana and really need to wash some clothes! The location was great and close to the waterfront.

I stayed here for a conference a few weeks ago - it was great. You don't just get a big bedroom you get a lounge, a dining area, a kitchen with full amenities and a bathroom! Oh and a balcony. Can't fault the room - although do bring a South African adaptor for the plugs with you - otherwise you... More

I was in Cape Town on business and chose this hotel for it's accessibility to the waterfront and the city centre. The Victoria and Alfred area of the waterfront is a 10 minute walk from the hotel.

Stayed 3 nights on business, based on the hotel's central location, secure parking and good size rooms. The room was very spacious 1 bed apartment, perfect for working in room in evenings after a day of meetings.

What a hotel and setting as well! It helps that Cape Town takes pride in its clean streets and alleys! From the bike that's available to the breakfast and the luxurious rooms, this hotel is my number one for 2014! It's a must for business people and holiday makers that like to stay in the city

Stayed for 2 nights while attending a conference at the CTICC 5 minute walk away. Well priced and a lot cheaper than hotels at the CTICC. Rooms are comfortable, clean with all amenities (WiFi free). Breakfast was fine, but disappointingly there was no cosy lounge or bar area
