We spent last week on holiday in Cape Town and stayed at the SunSquare Cape Town for the second time. We were as satisfied as during our first visit. The hotel is clean and quiet. It is well-situated, with restaurants, a cinema, a shopping centre and tourist attractions (the Company's Garden, Natural History Museum, Parliamentary precinct) in easy walking distance.... More

Sun Square is a lovely hotel with loads of parking. The front office staff was very helpful. The rooms are spacious and cleaned well each day. The hotel is very accommodating with a late check out. The hotel is based at the foot of the mountain.

The rooms are excellent, they are so comfortable and I would love to visit with family during holidays. The view of the hotel is also entertaining even at the reception you feel the warmth from the staff members.

The location was lovely with free parking for all the guests. It also felt like a safe neighbourhood and having traveled with my 6 year old and 1 year old this was very important. The room itself was great with two double beds, cleaned every day. The breakfast was very good as well and catered for all kinds of moods.... More

My wife and are both long term Capetonians, now living on the other side of the Wester Cape mountains. Occasionally we go stay in Cape Town for a night or 2. Decided on the Sun Square Tsogo Sun Hotel. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that it was the old De Waal Hotel which we both used to frequent... More

The hotel is well situated, easy access into the government precinct without the heavy city traffic. The staff is friendly and does their best. The food is the same and the tv channels are Eurocentric. The DsTV channel choice does not give any indication that one is in Africa. They are no different from a hotel in New London or... More
