First impressions is key for me and starts with the hotel staff. The staff was friendly and inviting. Check was smooth, as soon as I opened the door to our suite i was floored with its beauty. I must say it was warm and inviting. the outside of the hotel doesn't reveal the beauty going on inside. I enjoyed our... More

The Hotel-Super Clean The Staff personable and accommodating. I can't believe I received 2 free drink coupons as well. I loved my stay at Fire and Ice. The Breakfast was amazing.I had a choice of Salmon or an Omelette There were tons of other choices as well.

I've stayed in many 4 star hotels before but this was just not worth it.. In my many travels I've actually never written a review because I've stayed in amazing hotels that already had good reviews and any problems I might have experienced were so minor that they were not worth mentioning.. My mistake with this one was trusting the... More

The hotel was great in terms of location (down the road from the V and A Waterfront) however I found service often slow and sometimes room service wouldn't respond to requests at all (after being told the requested items were being sent up). This hotel was extremely noisy. Renovations were taking place, which I understand, but drilling continued at early... More

I have stayed here on 7 occasions, they use their CRM database very well and always remember you,even have a welcome back poster at reception. I love the sign on the GM,s door "Please disturb" sums up the whole attitude. The team always offer a warm welcome and at breakfast or dinner make it a great place to stay. All... More

Although it is not on the beach front it is along the main road leading up to Table Mountain and only about 2kms/ 1.25 miles from the Waterfront Complex. Their " milkshakes" and I have put that in " because likening their creations... More

This is my favourite spot in Cape Town to enjoy a milkshake - fantastic flavours, fun vibe and creative decor. There are so many yummy and unusual flavours, you just keep having to go back to try another. The burgers are great too. As for the hotel itself its conveniently located toward the 'top' of town, close to the night... More

Surprising fun hotel in a traditional hotel chain. Very groovy decor and a great restaurant. Rooms are small but sufficient for overnight stay...would not call it a family hotel but great for business stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Prepare to be blown away with the same force as the winds of the iconic Cape South-Easter as you step into the ultra-cool Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Cape Town. This extreme hotel, in the heart of the vibrant Mother City, offers adventure-seekers an accommodation option with a difference. A retro suspended pod chair welcomes travel weary GUESTS at reception. Beat the heat with a frosty-cold beer that awaits you in the built-in ice buckets at the bar and chill out in a booth or on the relaxation deck with a sizzling sexy cocktail. Attention to detail, personal service, and never forgetting to seize life and live it to the full' make Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Cape Town stand out from the crowd. We take service levels very, very seriously, but never take life too seriously. It is set in the heart of Cape Town, a stone’s throw away from the best vibrant nightlife hotspots, cafés and restaurants; not to mention the bustling CBD and world class Cape Town International Convention Centre. So whether you are travelling for business or pleasure, with a tour group or as an independent traveller, you’ll be welcomed by like-minded adventurers at Protea Hotel Fire & Ice! Cape Town. ... more   less
