“Nice hotel in a scenic location.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

This is a nice hotel in one of the pretty areas of Cape Town (as I understood it from my local guide). I got a room with a great view of Table Mountain (which unfortunately was under the clouds for most of my stay) as well as the boats harbored in the quay. The room was luxurious and very quiet despite being near a dock where a large ship was being repaired with all the accompanying noise. It's also a short walk away from a mall with lots of shopping and a variety of restaurants as well as a few markets and also the aquarium. The historical area of Cape Town is also short taxi-ride away. I felt absolutely safe walking around the area with plenty of people milling about even late at night. The included breakfast was sumptuous and the staff very courteous and responsive. All in all, I had a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Table Mountain which also faces away from the busy front of the small...

Thanks for your review - we're glad you enjoyed your stay, sorry that there was cloud over the mountain, but that's one of the few things we can't arrange for our guests!

Hotel itself is ok - good size rooms and comfortable and ok value for money. The service however is excellent and the food in the restaurant is fabulous. The steak was so good I have never tasted anything better anywhere, Its was melt in your mouth fabulous. The location is great and close to everything.

We will be back in December its a great little hotel but Im going just for the steak :-)

I stayed in a room from where I can see the main road. The rooms are well maintained and clean. The staff are trained and and offer great assistance. Waterfront is at a walkable distance. After work, you can walk up to waterfront and back to hotel.

Good location in a safe/secure area: VA Waterfront. Plenty of restaurant options nearby and the hotel room service kitchen serves up a delicious meal.

Spacious rooms and a great view of the Waterfront area, great to people-watch perched on the windowsill.

Room Tip: Try booking via Amex Platinum to request for a room upgrade if available.

Perfect place to stop in Cape Town, very close to the Waterfront with shopping centres and restaurants. You can quickly reach any place in the peninsula and can also walk to the city centre. Large parking place for cars. Breakfast is very good, with wide range of food also evening quick dinner options. I definitely recommend it in Cape Town

Stayed at this hotel for a weekend in early June and was satisfied with my stay. The hotel is on the edge of the waterfront and you can walk to a lot of places. Rooms were comfortable and service was pretty good.

We stayed at the City Lodge V&A Waterfront for a single night for business towards the end of April - this is my second stay there. It is always clean, neat, it has absolutely everything you could wish for in terms of amenities. They also have a fabulous breakfast with loads of fresh fruits and other nice baked goodies. We were dropped at the hotel by a colleague so didn't have a car to get around. The concierge arranged a taxi for us for R30.00 (4$) to get to the Waterfront for dinner. (I wouldn't recommend the walk on your own at night). All in all a fabulous stay.
