Very good hotel situated in the heart of the sea point area. Rooms well equiped, also some (not sure if all are) with self catering equipment. Within easy walking distance of the sea and also the mycity bus station from where you can explore Cape Town.

Booked a sea view room at The President for three nights for a few reasons: We knew and liked the Bantry Bay area. It looked like it had a decent pool area to relax. Easy to get around to and from. It was decent value compared to the similar hotels around the V&A. In fairness to other reviews, parts of...

Fair enough we tried booking in at 0900 hrs after a long flight , the flight crew got their rooms but we and others weren't allocated rooms till noon. I can only assume it was because the cleaning staff didn't exactly rush and for a lot of the day, cleaners trolleys weren't in the corridors. The reception staff gave the...

The hotel is very comfortable but not very centrally located. It is located a very short distance from the ocean and has a on and off bus stop a block away, but otherwise not located well. The rooms were of nice size with good mattresses. The breakfast buffet had a good selection of foods and eggs cooked to order. The...

My husband and I were visiting Cape Town for 8 nights over the February half term and had a fantastic time. The hotel is really well located as it is only a short taxi ride into the city centre, as well as being a short walk to Regents Street which has lots of bars and restaurants. You can easily run...
