“Great Value for Money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2007

We stayed at the La Splendida for 2 nights and have no complaints at all. It is not a luxurious hotel like the ones found at the Waterfront, however, it's great value for money in our opinion, perfectly clean, suited our needs and very safe (off-street parking available as well - charged extra). The best feature of the hotel is definitely the short distance to the V & A Waterfront (and for the soccer fans: close-by to Cape Town's stadium construction site for the World Cup 2010).
Don't expect any service at this hotel like concierges etc. so suitcases are to be carried by the guests.

The restaurant next door is separate from the hotel. We didn't eat there but we had a couple of drinks at the bar. Again, nothing special but serves the purpose. We'd recommend this hotel to anyone not looking for absolute luxury in Cape Town!

Stayed @ La Splendida en route between Franschoek and The Bay Hotel. This value for money boutique hotel is just ideal for a couple of days. The sea view room exceeded expectations and I would recommend to anyone travelling and wanting to be close (5mins by car) to V&A waterfont.

Stayed here for 6 nights at end of February. Location is great, within short walking distance of some excellent restaurants, as well as the Waterfront (15-20 minutes).
Area seemed very safe.
Excellent views of the bay, especially at sunset. Room was excellent for the price, with a small balcony. Small fridge to store your own drinks etc was also a nice touch.
Staff were friendly, but did not need to use them for much, other than ordering a taxi on departure.
Cafe Bravo attached to the hotel was a good, well priced restaurant.
Would definitely stay here again.

This is a good value basic hotel. The rooms are fine, clean, with minimal facilities. There is pretty much no service at the hotel apart from the guy that checks you in....you have to carry your own bags up etc etc. There is a restaurant next door to the hotel where you can have breakfast however we avoided this (looked very smoky) and went down the road to the Newport deli which was excellent.

Overall a good location and good value for a few days in cape town, but i probably would not stay here again.

Stayed August 2006
