Fortunately we only needed a place to sleep and shower. If I had to stay a second night, we would have moved to somewhere else. TV could not switch on. Hairdryer did not have an adapter. Bed lamps did not work. It was not clean.A Room safe without a key. The kitchen and bathroom had net curtains that was not wide enough for the windows. I can go on and on..
We stayed in these apartments March 2017 for a week on recommendation of a bussiness friend. We especially asked, as we were arriving by car from Namibia on Sunday if there would be someone to meet us and check us in. When we arrived the doors were shut and no one around to meet us. Thats how it started........ Then the cleaning lady appeared and said that the lady who would check us in would be coming soon !?? After about twenty mins she appeared and checked us in which was fine. The apartment is very basic with antiquated furniture and fittings and not very clean at all !! The bathroom fittings are really old and the shower is a hand held shower of the plastic bath. This was irritating for me as it was extremely slippery and the danger of falling is a real problem. Parking , we were told, was an underground, secure parking but turned out to be just an open parking at the back of the building. The area is not at all good with lots of clubs and lots of noise at night and police sirens forever present !! The receptionist/manager is never at the reception should you require something. Not up to stadard at all and we are certainly not snobs, but expect a minimum, decent, standar.…
Not sure this is the correct apartment. Seems to be different ones. But 8 Vesperdene Road is correct! The furniture were bit worn. But all CLEAN! We appreciate that! Enough kitchen, the bed comfortable, clean fully working shower. Wonderful with private parking! Balcony small, but enough and so nice! Location super! But think the wonderful nice female owner sold it while we were there. Worth every penny because so cheap!
We arrived to find out that we had to drive 40mins to pick up our keys, then found out that we had been checked into the wrong room and they said we had to return the wrong paperwork they gave us. Like it was our fault. They lied about having free wifi and I emailed them 3 times asking for help and no one bother to respond. Heaps better places to stay. Don't waste your time or money in Cape Town
We stayed one night as it is within walking distance of the Greenpoint stadium. The place is tired and dated, but although basic, it is clean. Towels and sheets etc clean and the kitchen area perfectly OK. There's a kettle and a full sized fridge. It was quiet and we slept well. It isn't luxurious but the staff were pleasant and welcoming. There is secure parking on site. Internet is free, but is the somewhat restricted AlwaysOn.
