The staff, rooms and food service at the Adderley exceeded expectation. Reception desk staff were friendly and welcoming; the room was much larger than anticipated, and nicely appointed. The restaurant provided a great breakfast at a really reasonable price. The central location of the Adderley Hotel is great - within easy walking distance of botanical gardens, museums, galleries, shopping, restaurants.

I simply love this hotel! It is amazing! The rooms are super spacious- have a lounge area with own TV, extra toilet, kitchenette, bathtub, shower, simply fantastic! The breakfast was good, had good options, didn't get to have meal at the hotel though. The hotel is also at a great location, very close to Longstreet- less than 5 minutes walk,... More

Power cuts nearly everyday, beyond the control of the hotel, but all everyone got was a candle. Would have thought with the power cuts so often they would invest in windup lanterns in every room. Asked front desk to order me a taxi, was told ( rather abruptly ) there are taxis at the front, which there is but these... More

PARKING: Brilliant. 50R per day. Enter via Parliament Street level F and check in from the car park. SECURITY: Busy during day with lots of tourist police everywhere. After dark a little caution is required or take taxis to avoid a few beggars and miscellaneous loonies. Generally felt very safe throughout and is improving having visited 3 times now. LOCATION:...

Great location. Great bedroom, restaurant and hotel support. The area where is located the hotel deserves care for those who are staying alone, especially women, because the place looks dangerous, although locals claim otherwise.

I stayed at the Adderley Hotel for 6 nights in October. This hotel is located in the central business district one half block from the Slave Museum and Company Gardens. Upper Long Street (old part of Cape Town with bars and restaurants) is an easy, and safe, 7 minute walk. The Bo-Kaap and Castle of Good Hope are both within... More

Initially I was having difficulties finding accommodation in Cape Town for the time of year we were going.

For the price I paid it was difficult to match however nearer the... More
