Even though the hotel is currently doing some renovation you really don't know it. Rooms are quiet, staff is awesome, and the location is perfect. Less than 5 minutes to walk to shopping, restaurants, and the sites. Only about 20-25 minutes from the airport. Alex at the travel desk was so helpful and got us set up for tours and... More

The V&A on the waterfront in Capetown is a quality hotel. Excellent room, helpful staff, ideally located. Although some renovations are underway, they did not deter the feeling of staying in a quality hotel. It is ideally situated near many restaurants, close to the Hop On/Off bus and numerous shops, department store and markets. It is right next to the... More

We spent four nights enjoying beautiful Cape Town and could not have chosen better accommodations. The rooms are very spacious, comfy and elegant with fabulous bathrooms. Those facing the busy waterfront have great views yet remain quiet and feel private. The... More

Pleasant stay . Nice vibe on V and A . Good service. The rooms that opens up on water very nice. The ones over parking area average . Better value for money than the Queen Victoria. .. Lovely breakfast spread . Enjoyed it.

This hotel has a great location right on the waterfront. We had adjoining rooms and both were very spacious. It was my daughter's favorite hotel during our 3 1/2 week trip. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There is so much to do in the area that we only used our rental car one day.

The hotel is excellent. Is located right in the waterfront. At the time they were under renovation so was a lit noisy. My room was clean and spacious. The gym is located across the street in the sister hotel. I recommend this hotel.,
