Stayed at this hotel when we arrived late and didn't want to travel the N2. So convenient have booked again for September. Rooms a bit small but the convenience of the location makes up for it especially at the price (cheap). Good breakfast at a a very reasonable cost.

Stayed one night before departing Cape Town. No frills hotel -- hard mattress, small shower, very poor internet, limited food delivery options (no Mr. Delivery, only pizza as an option), doors shut very noisily, no shuttle service to the airport (35 RND for taxi one-way). Stay here if you need a place for a short night or a few hours.... More

We flew into Cape Town very late (11pm arrival) and were leaving the next morning to drive to Hermanus (08h00 departure). This is a perfect overnight stay for a short trip like we did. Unfortunately you cannot walk from the airport to the hotel as they close the gate at 10pm, but we were lucky enough to find a gentleman... More

The advantage of this site is the proximity to the Airport. The rooms are clean and small. The bathroom is adequate with a single basin and small shower. Nothing other than the room is included in the price, expect to pay extra for breakfast. There are no cups, tea or coffee in the room as one would expect. Asking for... More

Thank you for staying with us and for your constructive review. While we believe that this hotel easily meets the standards of budget one-star accommodation, this does mean that some services and facilities available in higher grade establishments are not available at the one-star level.

If you need to stay near the airport, this is your spot! Clean, comfortable, friendly, affordable, and close! It's nothing fancy, but who needs fancy in an airport hotel?

This is cheap, but it is very basic, rooms are looking a bit dated and the hotel lacks amenities, however there is good wifi and is very close to the airport, albeit not in a particularly safe area. Staff were friendly and helpful, but would stay somewhere else next time
