Dear725elenaj Thank you so much for providing such a detailed review of our hotel. I am pleased to read that overall you enjoyed your stay with us once again. My apologies for the parking, as we have very limited parking with only 12 parking bays below the hotel we have rented parking in the buildings surrounding the hotel in order to try and ensure that we can always assist our guests with parking. The company that is contracted to the hotel provides a valet parking service as they park the vehicles to three different buildings. Your comments relating to the guests smoking in the room - once again, my apologies. We do try and ensure that guests do not smoke in non-smoking rooms. The smoke detectors are for the purpose of a fire, not detecting guests smoking in rooms. We look forward to welcoming you back on your return to Cape Town. Once again, thank you for your valuable feedback. Kind Regards Judy Coleman - General Manager

My husband and I are considering staying at the Cape Town HIE and wanted to know if it’s safe to walk a handful of blocks to restaurants/lounges at night? Did you have to use Uber or Taxis at all? How far is it from the Hop on Hop Off city tour stop? Thank you
Its safe depending on the precautions you take. Pickpocketing is common. Dont show off valuables snd generally be street smart. There are also marshals walking about.

Hi there, I am planning to stay at your hotel for the first time in Cape Town next Apr. I would appreciate your advice on the following: 1. As there is no metro, please advise how I can get around to the sights in Cape Town to and from your hotel by public transport eg V&A waterfront, table mountain, penguin island, sea seal island, 12 apostles. 2. As I will arrive and depart in JB, does your hotel have any coach service running between JB and CapeTown? 3. How much approximately by a taxi from your hotel to the V&A waterfront? Metered taxi? Thank you very much! Alan
I would consider using uber for most of your needs, their prices are very affordable and accurate. During my stay I walked to table mountain, it took me about 40min to the base of the mountain. There was grocery store to get water and drinks then 3-4 hours to devil’s peak. Just take as much as you can liquid to avoid drinking from water stream as no other shop available in the mountain. You can navigate good hiking trails using google maps. To water front it was shorter walk about 20min with good pace.

I am staying at the hotel in mid May. we don't tend to venture out in the evening, could someone please let me know what english tv channels they have in the hotel? I would like to check them out online in advance to see if I need to stock up my laptop with films to watch. Thanks
not much but a few english channels and sports channels like super sports 1 2 which show rugby cricket football what i can suggest you is become a member of the hotel programme and get free wifi voucher and then enjoy you tube or ask your tour operator to take you to the waterfront which is safe and lovely
