The location of the hotel is very good, you can reach by foot shopping mall and atractions as well as bars and night clubs. The rooms are rather big, unfortunately no bath, just a shower. Adapted power plugs for different plugs. Food in the restaurant was delicious, however the

The hotel is comfortable and the location good. All the basic amenities you need are there, AC, free wifi etc. The bath needs to be re-coated - it has stains and is scratched badly. Better yet, remove it completely and replace with a shower cubicle. Pity about the service -

Good accurate answers above! I can't add much more. It is downtown and slightly shabby.. Definitely not the level of the V&A Waterfront environs/surroundings or Camps Bay. But a good hotel nevertheless. And I have certainly walked around the area in the day. Don't do that at night though. It's just a bit empty and dark. Just catch a cab or get Uber on wifi - Uber works very well in Cape Town for getting around. If you are in a normal taxi make sure it has a meter.
