To much noise and over priced for a hotel that is located centrally for businesses and traveling. Rather stay in a guesthouse before book again with them. There's no communication between staff even if you arrange beforehand a late check out. They will still phone you to tell you not asking that it's time to check out.

The room was immaculate, crisp white bedding, great bath and shower. The bed was comfortable and overlooked the pool. We only spent two nights but thought it was worth the room rate. A short trip from the airport and close to Athlone, Claremont and Rondebosch. The resident café served the most gorgeous, just like Mamma makes it, meals and we... More

The City Lodge chain is rather big in South Africa, and just on the other side of Table Mountain this City Lodge is located, great for business purposes. It looks like the hotel recently has been refurbished, modern rooms with all comfort necessary for a business hotel. If one is visiting Capetown for leisure I would suggest to go closer... More

I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. The rooms are the same quality as an InterContinental or Hilton. The room was spotlessly clean and well designed with a writing desk and a space to make coffee.The hotel soundproofing is good and I had a good night's rest. The only improvement I can suggest is more light at the mirror in... More

Clean and functional hotel when on business in Cape Town. I have stayed here often in the last year and the hotel is close to commercial and industrial areas. Not close to city centre or attractions so not really for tourists, although golf course right next door. Staff friendliness outstanding and service interactions were always a pleasure. Rooms clean and... More
