I advised the hotel that I have had a total knee replacement and would need some assistance in the event that areas are accessible via stairs. Well, within a few hours of sending the note under special comments in my electronic booking I had an email and a telephone call from Sasha to enquire as to the extent of my...

While officially rated 3 star, I would rate it 3 star plus, for the excellent value and location this hotel offers. It is situated in the vibey city centre, within easy walking distance to major sightseeing locations and public transport. A renovated office building, rooms are compact but functional. Service was friendly and efficient and breakfast was good. Downsides are:...

We went during September 2013 via a Groupon voucher. Place looked like a dream in the pics, but just wait until you get there! Firstly the hotel has no parking of its own, we had to park a few blocks away and walk from there to go and check-in. The receptionist was so unprofessional, treated us like we were her...

My wife and I are from Cape Town and decided to stay in the city over the weekend. When we arrived the parking was not well explained and was pretty inconvenient but was the best option available in the heart to the city. The staff (especially Sasha) was very accommodating as our first room (305) was too small. This is...

My husband and I couldn't afford something fancy for our wedding anniversary so we took a Groupon special that included dinner and an overnight stay at the Cape diamond. However, the vouchers for that offer were already redeemed by others so only the dinner was available to us. We went anyway and spoke to the staff. They quickly made arrangements...
