The City Lodge Hotel was a very nice hotel about 30 minutes from the airport. It was clean, furnishings were in good condition and situated on canal with beautiful view of Table Mountain, surrounded by gorgeous high rise buildings and green landscapes. Room included an electric coffee and tea maker, very large modern bathroom with a huge soaking tub. I... More

Great value for money hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. Only about 5 minutes walk to the V&A and decent bar area and veranda to enjoy a few cold one's after a long day. The staff were very accommodating and even assisted us to check in even though we arrived hours before the time.

The hotel is situated in a central area and is very close to the waterfront, but we always went by car to avoid walking back in the dark. We were pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was: spacious, clean and with a nice bathroom. We slept well, apart from the pillows...but I have to say: it's quite difficult finding... More

I did a business trip to CT on short notice and needed accommodation for 1 night and booked at the City Lodge V&A. I was concerned about possible traffic noise level given the location so close to the Waterfront, but was pleasantly surprised to find my room ( no 55) a tranquil haven with a very comfortable bed and top...

A very nice place to stay while visiting Cape Town. The Waterfront Area is just few walking minutes away and the Cape Town Convention Center is opposite of the Hotel. The rooms are good and the service is excellent. You can eat a good omelet for breakfast.

I've stayed a quite a few City Lodges but this is my favorite by far. Forget that it's close to the V&A, ever time I'm here there is a personal note welcoming me back. "They remember your last visit" This City Lodge will match many 4 star hotels I've stayed in around the world. I will recommend to any visitor... More

This is a chain hotel. It very average. its not posh at all, but a comfortable clean place to stay with a good service with helpful and polite staff. The rooms are clean and of an acceptable size. Its a ten minute walk to the Waterfront, so pretty well located without the buzz of the Waterfront. This is good if... More

We had a lovely stay at the City Lodge V&A Waterfront. Because it is situated walking distance from the V&A Waterfront, it is the most convenient place to stay. The rooms are modern, clean and comfortable with ample free parking. Because of the construction work next to the building, it is a little bit noisy now, but soon that will... More

Rooms are clean and well kept. The bed was very comfortable. Due to the construction of a parking garage at the back of the building there was noise until late in the evening. This should however be temporary. Breakfast is great!! Really good variety more like a 4 star hotel. Very central so easy to get to all the tourist... More
