We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights on a city break. The location is good for the city centre with a Steers and KFC directly over the road, and Long Street just a minutes wallk away. However as tourists we felt that the city centre wasn't really the place to be and we would have much preferred to be at the V&A Waterfront.
The undercover drop off point was a nice first impression and the door staff were very friendly and helpful. The lobby was clean and modern and the rooms were of a good size and standard. We stayed bed and breakfast, and the dining hall was big and clean, and the choices were good with pastries, hot food, egg station, cereal and fruit bar and bread and toaster.
The taxi fare from the Strand to Table Mountain cable car was around 60Rand and to the Waterfront was 50Rand.
Overall if you want to be in the City Centre, I would recommend this hotel especially for the value for money.
