Located in Sct. Georges Mall you are in the very centre of the city. Quiet in evenings. Fountains is an old hotel which has had some updating here and there.. In this windy city it can be quite drafty. Doors are wooden and does not offer much soundinsulation, keys oldfashioned. A room by the elevators might want you to bring... More

V&A Waterfront, Camps Bay and Table Mountain - all are close by (within 15 mins drive). But the rooms are very small and does not have enough space. (atleast the... More

This hotel was great! I was there in July 2011 for about a week. Location is great for sightseeing and shopping. There's a bus to the waterfront that's cheap and runs often - just two blocks away. The hotel felt very business-like, but that's fine. Staff was helpful. Breakfast was very good.

I stayed for 2 weeks at this hotel and I was completely happy with their service. Friendly staff and wonderful service! The food at the hotel is great and the fact that they give you free Wi-Fi is great! :)

Stayed over a night at Fountains Hotel with family. We loved the ease of accessibility of the hotel and its centrality to most attractions in cape town. Our room had a king bed and overlooked the fountains below and from the bed I had a nice view of the famed Devil's Peak and the "smoke" of cloud rolling over spectacularly.... More

This hotel looks good on the ground floor (reception and dinning area), unfortunately from the lifts up it is a let down. Everything needs a good lick of paint, the carpets need to be cleaned, lifts are dirty and all round terrible. It is looking more like a hostal than a hotel. The rooms are small, but beds comfortable with... More

This is a well located hotel near to Convention center good for business activities, V&A Waterfront and just on the long street (lower). A few minutes walk to all these places. Breakfast and food is good and free wifi. The downside remains the tiny double bed rooms and present on the busy roundabout that sometimes becomes noisy. A good place,... More
