“Great solution in Green Point”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Primi Oxford house offers self-catering suites in an area of cape town called Green Point, which is a stone throw from the V&A waterfront. The suites are all very big, furnished in a modern design style and with a kitchenette area. In my view, these suites could easily be rented by someone who wishes to spend some time (months) in cape town.

Things to keep in mind if you want to stay here are: a) the manager is a very nice and practical person but he's not always around (it's not an hotel) anyway there is a phone number you can call in case of need and I'm sure he would be available in no time. If you are arriving late in the evening I would suggest calling while on the way to make sure someone is there to check you in; b) albeit very close to, this is not the v&a waterfront, it takes about 10 min walking to get there as the two areas are separated by a fence which is open only in one point, and at night you may feel uneasy at walking on the road to get there as you will most likely be the only one doing it. If you want something closer to the v&a you should probably look at soemthin on Portswood Rd

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We were looking for accommodations near the Cape Town Stadium since we were going to watch the Lady Gaga concert. The location was excellent because it was just about 3 blocks from the stadium so we could just walk. There are many hip restaurants and bars, and even convenience stores and chemists, just along Main Street so you don't have to go far to get food. The room itself is quite spacious and has modern interiors. My only problem is they don't do a very good job at cleaning the room. Other than that, I think it's good value for money, especially for such a prime location.

This property is close to the V&A downtown area, and is relatively HUGE, clean, and air-conditioned. The limited interaction (we only saw the staff for a few seconds here and there) with the staff was pleasant and friendly. We stayed for 2 days so we didn't get to spend a lot of time there, but we were certainly pleasantly surprised with the value.

There is a small kitchenette, a microwave. There is a Woolworth's down the road too. It felt safe and homey. It was very clean and bright. Bring your own toiletries.

I was pleasantly surprised by this little hotel. The room was very comfortable and spacious. Staff was very friendly and kept room spotless throughout the stay. Although so close to the V&A, the area was very quiet. Security was great too - cameras watching over your car at night. Can highly recommend!

Room was very big and comfortable, huge bathroom and kitchen facilities. Comfy bed, quiet street, although very close to the waterfront.
You have to climb the stairs, so prepare your arms to take the luggage!

Very spacious, very large bed, very clean with great facilities. Kitchenette has a sink, fridge, microwave and toaster along with utensils for two. They don't have any facilities to wash your items after but they wash them for you when they clean the room.

There is a good sized wardrobe, desk with chairs and lounging chair.

Shower has a tendency of getting the bathroom floor wet which was a bit hazardous.

Overall though, the size of the room and the facilities are brilliant for the price.

I stayed here on a weekend away from volunteering work. I chose because of both price and location, and being close to V&A and very reasonably priced I wasn't expecting much,

I was pleasantly surprised on entering the room, mainly because of the size. It was a lovely big room , well kitted out and very comfortable.

Easy to walk into town or around the area which was really clean and safe. Bathroom is big and airy as well.

Staff were friendly and helpful

Happy to reccommend Primi Oxford
