Stayed a lovely family room. There are no good views to speak of, but the central location and good value make up for it. Minutes away from Artscape and the V and A waterfront. Good breakfast and close to restaurants and takeaways. Very comfortable beds and pillows. The mini fridge was a bonus. There is a free shuttle to the...

This is my fifth stay at this hotel. It is a bit weary worn, but is undergoing refurbishment bit by bit. The rooms are large but do not have double glazing. One half of the building has acceptable views of Table Mountain. The staff are very polite and genuinely friendly. On the second floor is restaurant that you can get...

The staff really redeems this hotel. Everybody was so friendly. The breakfast spread is large and varied, should satisfy all palates. Rooms are spacious. Bottled water is provided only once during your stay... 2 small bottles. Free water available in the lobby. Burger king is just next door. WI fi is good and free but available only in the lobby

Not the greatest place to stay but has awesome location, polite staff and awesome food. It's not a comfortable hotel but good for backpackers and group tours. The place is dated but in working order and has a prayer room. The restaurant is halaal and clean. Has good wifi and business facilities, not a luxury hotel.

How dissappointing. This place is dirty. The food although suppose to be halal is terrible. Cold tasteless and really not nicely presented. It is like nobody cares as to what is happening. Been there before about a year ago but this time around really not impressed.

The lobby is beautiful. But when you get to your floor , you realize how dirty the carpets are. We stayed there for three nights. And they had some issue with their boiler before we reached. In the cold weather we did not get hot water for 2 nights. After that when the group was upset and asked for refund,...
