I stayed here for 2 nights in early April (Wed & Thurs nights). A shuttle from Cape Town airport will cost 230ZAR A taxi will cost 260ZAR Upon arrival, I discovered the bar and restaurant was getting renovated so it should be better than before. Breakfast was at a restaurant called Arriba down the road and full breakfast was fantastic.... More

We booked this hotel based on the reviews on Tripadvisor so we knew more or less what to expect. Being situated in a busy main street you would expect it to be slightly noisy at night as it was. We were there on a monday night and most of the clubs were closed se we did not have all the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on the 18th and 19th March. The room was the highlight of our stay - big, comfortable and great bathroom - this alone would deserve a better rating. The location is fabulous if you want to be able to go out on Long Street, it is in the heart of the action. The downside... More

We knew we needed to expect lots of noise on this street and that was certainly the case (regardless of the day of the week, it's extremely loud outside at night), but what we weren't expecting was the basic nature of this apparently '4 star' hotel. While the room was a great size and very clean, it was a good... More

This is a good hotel in the centre of Long Street. Stayed for 10 days. Got a room in 4th floor. Some noise during weekend nights, but less than expected. Normal for a hotel in the centre for cities. Nice and clean room. Ok bed. Best of all: A very large and relaxing bathtub, used every evening. And separate shower.... More

Overall, a very good value hotel in the heart of Cape Town. Being on Long Street, it was bound to be noisy - especially at the weekend. Hotel staff are friendly, and non-intrusive. Reception staff were happy to assist with travel arrangements/sightseeing. Housekeeping staff deserve praise for their attention to detail, returning each evening to see if anything else was... More

I stayed for 7 days and enjoyed. I found the staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms are 4 star , but the rest of the hotel is a 3. The noise is very very loud as you are right in the heart of long street. The music stops at around 4am. It is certainly an experience to visit Long... More

Other reviews I read complaining about noise were somewhat unfair, in my opinion - a tiny bit of research and a bit of common sense should tell you to expect some noise in a BUSY nightlife area; I had no real problems on that score. The room itself was impressive, as was the view (central city buildings notwithstanding). Service was... More

We stayed at Urban Chic for the first part of our trip. We requested a room overlooking Table Mountain and found that they were very accommodating to that request. The room was very nice and a good size. The breakfast that is included is delicious; it included a number of hot and cold options and we certainly weren’t disappointed. The... More

The hotel has been upgraded and the room and bathroom is very nice. However, if you go there you will need earplugs as the nightclubs go on all night and early morning. The first night we did not sleep at all. The second night we had earplugs which helped. The included breakfast was average nothing to rave over. I left... More
