The Ideas Cartel Cafe is smart in offering more than just the A-typical Full English for its normal breakfasts and its brunch time – especially in a city where friends, associated, families, and solo diners seek out tastes from around the world. My recent weekend staycation at @cartelhousehotel involved trying quite a few things from the cafe, from the Classic Croque Madame – a sourdough sandwich of creamy Bechamel-covered ham and cheese and egg – to the Strawberries and Chocolate Flapjacks. The @Brunch.ct chef is very clearly well-versed in more than just eggs and breadstuffs. My most memorable meal was the Full English Breakfast Dutch Baby. The traditional Full English here, may pass muster decently enough, but the Dutch Baby twist makes for one of the most divine breakfasts for under R100, that I've had in the city so far. I highly recommend this specific order for your brunch - it shoots well, and satiates the tumtum and tastebuds wonderfully!

I stayed here for a business trip in December and will be the only hotel I would return to when staying in the centre of Cape Town. The interior design is gorgeous, location fantastic (lots of shops, cafes and restaurants within walking distance and anything else an easy taxi ride or drive away), the amenities perfect and the staff was fantastic. Travis in particular was always there to help and super easy to communicate with as I needed quite a bit of help (via whatsapp even!). 5 stars all around!

On Saturday, 1st May 2021 my wife and I took advantage of a bundled deal offering advertised by Cartel House Hotel and checked in roundabout 16:00 after a relaxing Spa as part of our Wedding Anniversary celebration. I asked via email during that week if they could please do something special for us as it is our wedding anniversary on the Friday, 30th April, however when we got to the room we didn't notice anything done that indicates this at all. I couldn't make any enquiries about this either as there is no room service, which is odd because how would you communicate if there was an emergency? Considering that we have never been to this hotel before, it would seem that this hotel focuses more on business clientele that comes in for a one or two night stay and then leave again, but then if that is the case, the management should look into the finer details and ensure that all the amenities are at least in working order as advertised. The Wi-fi in our room didn't work and neither did the electrical points to the left of the bed. Nevertheless, we didn't allow this to dampen our celebrations and still headed out to enjoy the rest of what was left of our day. A lot has been done on the aesthetic and cosmetic appeal to the rooms, which is all good and well when you're paying R1700 a night, but then the service should be on point for that price as well. For us this wasn't a business trip, but a special occasion and unfortunately the hotel missed the mark on our experience as first time guests. Yes, hospitality has taken a knock in these challenging times, but that does not mean that service should be compromised by any means and I hope that this leaves room for improvement. Other than this the room was neat and tidy and offers a beautiful view across the city.

Memories areade when everything comes together perfectly, staying at The Cartel House made this our reality. A definite recommendation for anyone looking to stay in our beautiful Mother City.

I always say that the people of Cape Town and South Africa don't value our city and its little hide aways. This hotel is a prime example of excellent service and absolute relaxation. With its limited rooms it also gives a sense of individual attention from its staff. It was indeed a memorable stay.
