“Protea North Wharf - Close to Water Front Cape Town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

This hotel is in walking distance to the Cape Town Convention Centre, its a longer walk to the waterfront and a shuttle is probably recommended to 1st time visitors, also very close to the offices nearby.
3-5 minutes stroll to the Food-lovers market - open daylight hours only, banks are as close....
This hotel has parking but access is strangely on the other side of the building, however the security guard jumps in to ensure you don't get lost, he only has to show you once.
Good pizza across the road, can be delivered as well.

Room Tip: The rooms can be self catering and are more than spacious and can accommodate meetings and client me...

The visit commenced with a fantastic greeting at reception, couldn't be more helpful. The accommodation was spacious, very clean with all the essentials of an apartment. Food freshly cooked in front of you. Feel safe in the surrounding area with public safety officers walking around the location all the way down to the water front.

I spent three nights in this hotel in the first half of September (i.e, the beginning of the spring season in South Africa).

The room was simply wonderful: a very large living room with sofa, armchair, TV, table, desk, etc.; a well equipped kitchen; a very nice bedroom (with a second LCD TV); a large bathroom with a huge shower and a bath tube. Every part of the hotel looked very clean and well-finished. The staff was very kind in assisting me on any requests. The breakfast was simply perfect: there was every kind of food and everything was really good!

The location of the hotel is excellent too (it is in the city center, 1 walking min to CTICC, and 5 min to the waterfront).

The only issues were: 1) the bathroom was quite cold and 2) during the night some cold air came from outside the (closed) window of the bedroom.

This is a gem of a boutique, all suite hotel hidden in the centre of town and surrounded by huge, skyscraper, faceless hotels.
The eighty plus suites are exceptionally large and very well appointed with fridge, freezer, cooker, micro wave and even a washing machine and dryer. My suite was on the fourth floor overlooking a tree lined square adjacent to the International Conference Centre and a ten minute walk to the famous Waterfront. It was kept beautifully clean with morning and night service by friendly, attentive staff. The resturuant is pleasant and adequate producing a very good buffet breakfast and with world class resturuants all around you won't need it further. The gym is small and lacking facilities as is the pool on the top floor but these are the only draw backs from awarding the hotel five star status. I spent a very enjoyable week here and all of the staff went out of their way to make me feel at home and after sampling life in a luxurious suite, I will not be staying in hotels rooms anymore. At least not in Cape Town.

We recently stayed as two couples and two children in the Protea North Wharf suite on the 7th floor. It has three rooms, a living area and open plan kitchenette. this is a perfect setting for a family holiday in December at a reasonable price. The V&A waterfront is 15 minutes walk away, there is a pizza place just outside the front door and a gym. if you rent the suite and go up one floor you get to the roof on which a beautiful pool is build in a wooden deck. I think overall this hotel is good value for money for work or play.

Room Tip: If you go as a family, the suites on the 7th floor is a good choice. Otherwise any room will do.
