This hotel ticks all the boxes for 4 star but is badly in need of a refurb! It's quite noisy, from inside and outside. Our room is rather 'tired' - furniture chipped and marked, toilet cracked, sliding door into bathroom doesn't work properly and shower door won't close! Hot water is never hot enough and the 'hot' tap must run... More

We stayed here for our anniversary, we had a nice room with a small balcony and a good view. The room felt perfectly equipped… it is in the middle of Cape Town so we just used it as a place to sleep… and breakfast was very good as well with a wide variety to choose from. We were welcomed with... More

Very good location within Cape Town CBD close to the railway station and the main bus station at the Civic Center. There is work going on within the hotel at this time which can prove to be noisy during the day. Our initial room was very small and had no exterior view, to be avoided at all cost, but as... More

Plus points: staff are friendly and helpful, breakfasts are great, the whole place is very clean; central location within easy walking distance of Long Street; comfortable beds Minus points: the location, right on a busy roundabout in the centre of Cape Town, means...

I would like to commend the Fountains Hotel, Cape Town for the friendly staff and their warm reception. From the reception, all the way through the passage and to my room was extremely neat and clean. The room was warm and cosy and inviting with its cleanliness. The hotel is located centrally and within walking distance to the V&A Waterfront.... More

Had to have a home away from home for a few days and found the Fountains Hotel to be a great venue. Being very critical and fussy, I was very comfortable there. It was clean, staff were very hospitable and friendly and the location is very central for travelers, close to restaurants, trains, buses, tourist attractions. Thank you for a... More
