This is one of the many Protea hotels in Cape Town. Great location within walking distance of the Victoria and Alfred Wharf, Company Gardens, Long Street, shopping and most of the administrative buildings. The rooms are huge and all come with full bedroom, kitchen, living room and large bathrooms. The staff was very helpful and delightful. There is a small... More

I spent 8 nights in this hotel while attending a conference at the nearby conference centre in August 2015. The one bedroom apartment was terrific with lots of space, washing and drying facilities, a full kitchen, large living area, desk and table and four chairs. It was light and airy and very comfortable. The small lobby means that staff notice... More

The hotel has a small lobby, restaurant and bar area that is simple and works. Granted - this is not type of lobby where you will to spend time if you want to meet people (like other larger Protea hotels in other cities) it still works. The room that we stayed in was great - we picked up the 3... More

Our room was huge, with cooking and clothes washing facilities as well as the usual amenities, and it had a very large living area too - more like a small suit really. Staff were all very friendly and really helpful (especially when things went wrong with our partners' conference presentation so I had to set up their stand and needed... More

The only thing I can't comment on is the food as we took most of our meals just minutes away in downtown Cape Town (a 15 minute walk that the gentleman at the front desk expertly directed us to) I did have a glass of Pinotage wine in the lobby, generous pour, great wine, great price, great service.

Stayed here for a few days. Room was clean, and well appointed. Breakfast was excellent. Do not miss the omelette. Lounge was comfortable. Very convenient to convention center. Much better than the Protea Hotel at OR Tambo.

Great hotel, we had a 2 bedroom apartment which was great. The staff were very helpful. Food was lovely ( only slight criticism would be quite a lengthy wait for all food) and very locally situated. Recommend this hotel ,x

I've stayed here a few times. It is spectacularly good for business travelers. Depending on which side of the hotel your room is on, and the floor, views are quite good. Rooms are huge!! More of an apartment than anything else. Breakfast is buffet and quite reasonable. There are a few restaurants close by for dinner options. Staff are awesome!
