Not a bad hotel at all. I was initially put in a room without a desk - (really!) but on request my room was changed without fuss. Not sure how the booking process works but when a guest books under the name of a corporate, during the week, surely you assume the person is on business and therefore needs a desk. The hotel is recently renovated so is fresh and new. The staff are very friendly but don't appear to be solution driven. When a problem arises, they tend to look at you with no solution, but when you ask if they can do something specific to help they are very pleasant about doing it. Rooms are nice and while bathrooms are very small, they are perfectly adequate with very nice showers. It's a bit out of the way if you are doing business in Newlands, Claremont and if you expect to visit the V&A a bit, best to stay in town. The I house restaurant is the Spur which is a bit of a disappointment. 500MB free wifi a day. And it's fast. Bonus!
Would I stay here again? Probably not, primarily because it is too out of the way for my business purposes. Otherwise, definitely.
