The suites were beautiful, spacious and clean. The view was breath taking. Checking in was straight forward enough as we had paid in advance but I witness other guests having a few issues. It's in a great location. The only issue I had was with housekeeping not replacing towels and refilling the teas and coffees . Otherwise it was a... More

The location was great, the staff was very friendly. Very nice layout with a kitchen and washer/dryer. The Doppio Zero pizza place was very convenient, and the Food Lover's Cafe across the street was also convenient and very affordable. Building security was very good, so I felt very safe. The only issues were that there is a fair amount of... More

The apartments were beautiful and very clean and well maintained. The staff were all helpful and very polite and well mannered. The reception staff were also very well informed and we were able to do online bookings for the various tourist attractions like Table Mountain and Robben Island.

The Aha group, I was graciously afforded many a "Aha" MOMENT on the first day (3rd August) of my stay at the Mandela Rhodes. Let me summarily itemise the little moments first. 1. Incorrect allocation of the 2 platinum suites. 2. Airconditioner not working in suite. 3. A mystery beep from the fridge that could not be silence by the... More

I have had the pleasure of staying at this establishment in previous years and have only had positive experiences. Unfortunately this changed dramatically on my recent trip to this hotel. Initially there was confusion regarding our rooms (we had booked and paid for 2 penthouse suites). When we called to confirm we were informed that there was only one suite... More

Mandela Rhodes was conveniently located, restaurants were good, and very clean rooms. We were upgraded to a two bedroom suite and had lots of room to relax. The Hop on, Hop off bus stops right outside. Staff is very helpful.

I travel requested and staying in an hotel is unavoidable. So when in Cape Town I tend to stick to those which offer high levels of cleanliness, excellent and professional service, good coffee and friendly staff. In addition it must offer parking and be centrally located. This hotel ticked all the boxes but always ask for room away from the... More

My room was excellent and provided me with everything I needed for a 2 day stay. It was very quiet despite having window overlooking a busy street and no far from the lift. The coffee maker stopped working and it was promptly replaced by the new one.

Not bad at all, very centrally and lack the feel away from the tourist traps of the V&A. view from the room was great and staff are very helpful always. But the room does need some attention, flooring needs replacing and just looks dirty (would not take much to replace). Overall great value for money, just needs some attention. Would... More
