“stay in Double tree”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

An exciting experience that occurred a few minutes after my arrival. For fear of burdom in my hotel room, I decided take a small road that led to the main road. There I saw a police van packed with a policeman close to it. Immediately the policeman saw me, he beckoned to me and said ,Gettleman you are advised to cross to the other side of the road because a m waiting for somebody to come out of that building? If I try to stop him and he makes any attempt to run, I will shot!!, What an experience to somebody visiting South Africa. With regards to the hotel, the standards are good. However, for an African, the meals are too westernized. That said it was a memorable exprience but for what happened a few minutes after my arrival.

This is a beautiful and stylish Doubletree Hotel in a bafflingly odd location.

As others have also written, it is really off putting to turn off Main Rd into a dark alleyway of warehouses until you see your lodging.

Once inside, it's quite stylish---nicer than many doubletree and Hilton hotels elsewhere.

As a runner, I found the location unscenic enough that I doubt I'd return---there are other lodging options in the vicinity that are nice inside but have prettier environs when going out for a run.

But if you're not outdoorsy, this place may well suit you.

Fantastic hotel tucked away in Salt River. Great value for money. I have travelled to Cape Town on many occassions and only recently found this hotel. Although the surrounding area is a concern initially there is nothing to worry about. The hotel is clean and tidy and the staff are freinly and welcoming. The facilities are good and it is easy to get in and out of Cape Town from the hotel.

i really loved the quality service you gave me during my stay. you should be providing more free vehicle to different sites not only to the water front. the Table mountain is also an important place for tourist to be visiting.

After many weeks of traveling across Southern Africa we stayed here assuming it would be a nice break and a treat for our last night. Instead we experienced smokey rooms, smaller than advertised beds, and a staff that was unwilling to help. I honestly think you could find better conditions at a backpackers for a fraction of the price.

The quality, service and overall experience during my stay was exceptional. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who knows what service is about! I was truly cared for. The hotel is also perfectly located with easy access to shopping centres, the waterfront and beaches. The warm cookie upon arrival really gives it the personal touch.

We stayed in the King suite during our honeymoon and it was breathtaking! The room is incredibly spacious and well appointed. The view from the balcony over the city lights is breath-taking! Pure luxury and indulgence. The staff went above and beyond to ensure we had a magical time.
