Each huge 'room' in this hotel is a mini apartment, with kitchenette, bathroom, lounge and bedroom plus a balcony. It's clean, modern and, although not luxurious, it's perfectly nice for business and holidays. It's 5 minutes from the V&A Waterfront and convenient for everything else as well. Staff were excellent although those in the bar and restaurant were a little... More

Housekeeping really keeps the place clean and do frequent checks throughout the day.if you are doing the Cape Argus cycling race, this is the best hotel as it is a walking distance to the start and close to the finish.

I stayed at this hotel for 8 nights at the end of February with my husband and daughter. We had a 2 bedroom apartment on the second floor which was very well equipped and spotlessly clean. All the staff were efficient and friendly and the breakfast with pancake maker was excellent. The Waterfront is a 20 minute walk away but... More

My husband and I stayed in a two bedroom apartment with our 16 month old son for four nights in Feb 2014. We were on the 6th floor but couldn't really enjoy the balconies due to a toddler! Our check in was quick and efficient and they very gratefully let us check in early after a long overnight flight. The... More

We spent Christmas in Cape Town and this hotel was perfect for our family of 4. We enjoyed a 2-BR suite with a living room that gave us a chance to spread out and not all have to sleep in the same room. The location was ideal for both going to the Waterfront (15 minute walk) or into the shopping... More

Great location, in the heart of the city centre. The hotel room is just amazing. It has the feel of absolute luxury. The room is so tastefully decorated and designed that you may even take some tips for designing an elegant master bedroom back home. It is large, much larger than most hotel rooms. The separate living area is great... More
