Although the hotel is geared up for business travellers, being next to the convention centre the rooms were very comfortable with comfy beds and a good shower. The breakfast and bar meals were...

Value for money, in the the centre of everything. The In dining breakfast was limited though. They must include an extension cord in each suite to accomodate clients who will need to cut their hair....

My freind and I were visiting Capetown for 5 nites and found this hotel to be very nice to stay in. When we checked in we requested a view of Table Mountain and the front desk staff graciously switched our room.

A very nice hotel. Great location in the city center and with an efficient shuttle bus service. The staff was professional and very kind-hearted. Paid special attention to my 12-year old travel companion which made a lasting impression. Would definitely come and stay again.
