Average. We couldn't sleep the students were making noise. Music was loud. The lifts were very old like they will stuck at any time. For the amount paid it not worth it. The cleanliness overall is not bad

Good spacey room, WiFi was excellent if you compare it to others in SA, when power was cut they lit candles and the generator did its work. Restaurant next to hotel is Italian, bit expensive and not very big portions but ideal if you don't want to go out anymore. You get what you pay for.

This centrally located hotel is a very reliable choice. Management and staff are very helpful and reliable, and breakfasts, provided in association with the restaurant next door (The Cousins), are excellent. Higher floors are probably best to minimise street noise at night.

Good hotel, good location, nice and educated crew, I really recommend. The crew is very good and really helped me out booking restaurants and activities, I'm glad to choose to stay here. The restaurants near, both Italian and the cafe are good options for the extreme activities days, when you arrive to tired to go to another errand... Very good.

I loved staying here for the fact that they noticed we were using the futon as a bed and they brought in an extra bed without us asking! The bathroom was small, but our goal was to be out and about in Cape Town so that did not matter. The breakfast is good and the staff was helpful. My only... More

DSTV access was poor - very limited choice but the WIFI was excellent and do keep it up. The breakfast was good but lacked variety and do something about the flies in the restaurant, please. The service was good as staff were always willing to assist but a bit aggressive which was scary.

This is a comfortable midrange hotel right in the heart of Cape Town, near St. George's cathedral, the train station, and several museums. A great place to start your walks in and around Cape Town from. The waterfront is about twenty minutes by foot. Staff were helpful, polite, and quick to respond. Breakfast was good with many selections, hot and... More

I enjoyed my few days at the Parliament Hotel. It is downtown and easy to catch the public transport or walk to sites. There is a boisterous bar down the street, but that can be good or bad, depending on your wishes. Staff were lovely--super helpful. The breakfast had everything that I wanted, and the restaurant next door was delicious.... More

Good Value for money and excellent staff who helped in all ways. As we arrived and left by taxi (organised by the staff) I did not test ease of finding the place or car parking facilities. The hotel was in the process of redecoration, but this did not cause any inconvenience

Staff friendly & helpful. Good breakfasts. Lots of taxis when I wanted one, central location. 20 minutes walk from the train station. Parties on the sidewalks outside, didn't last very long, and not the hotel's fault.
