“Retro Gem”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 23, 2012

The two drawing cards for me were location and kitchen facilities. I like to have control of my nutrition when I am on the road as 3 meals a day in restaurants are hard on the waistline. The kitchen facilities were basic but functional. The location was an easy walk to the downtown business district and the hop-on/hop-off bus route. The furnishings and decor of the room were an extended flashback to the 50s. The fact that the hotel was painting trim on the window sills was a minor irritant. The big surprise benefit from the visit was the shuttle service. Airport pickup was nice but no surprise. The big plus came from the service to Camps Bay or the V&A waterfront.

Room Tip: Request a room with a balcony.

My friend and I stayed here last month and I can honestly say it was one of the BEST hotels I've ever stayed at, especially for the price!!!! The rooms were unbelievably huge. We each had what was called a "single studio" but it was literally like having a 2 bedroom apartment! It had two full bedrooms and 2 full baths. It also had a full kitchen....micro, stove, oven, refrig/freezer...everything but a dishwasher LOL. Big living area with TV and couch/end table etc. And a nice balcony too. The room rate (which was about $79/night per room) included breakfast and that was an actual buffet. It had both hot and cold items and someone making eggs to order. I have low blood sugar so a refrig is important and also a nice breakfast that has either eggs, cheese, meats...something with good protein to keep me going so I was thrilled. The staff were very helpful and if you come in or leave between regular hours (I don't remember when she said it started but it went until 9:30pm) they will pick you up or drop you off at the airport, also included in the price! I would recommend this hotel to anyone and if I come back (which is a definite possibility) I will book here again in a second!

Spent a few days in Cape Town at this hotel in 2011. Staff was very accommodating and polite. They helped us schedule a few trips/tours as we were from the US and didn't know the area well. Even had taxis come pick us up and drop us off at places. There is a restaurant on the property, which was great for breakfast. We enjoyed eating there as it was so convenient.

The rooms were a bit disappointing. The room seemed dingy. Like everything had just barely been cleaned. The air conditioner was noisy, but it served us well for the few days we were there.

I stayed here recently with a party of 38 on a rugby tour, and it was a great place to stay, the city of Cape Town was lively with lots to do! The hotel was R35-55 for a taxi to the waterfront between 7 people which was £3-£4, the food was fantastic and the buffet breakfast at the hotel was second to none!! Table mountain is a must and the aquarium at the waterfront is worth a visit, shark diving is worth the money, although we were out of season and got it reasonably cheap! A trip to a game reserve/safari of any kind is recommended, and the night life is brill, with a fancy club on the 31st floor of the ABSA bank!! Will most certainly be back in South Africa!!!

We had a family holiday to South Africa including two nights in Cape Town. This was a great base for our travels. The suites are basic but clean and comfortable. The breakfast was fine, very reasonable for the price. All the staff were friendly and super-helpful, starting with Henry, the hotel driver who met us at Cape Town airport, and Princess and Roswell at the front desk.

I spent last week in Cape Town and stayed at the Best Western Cape Suites Hotel. Once again it was very good value for money and the accommodation was spotless and very comfortable. The position of the hotel is also within walking distance of the central business district and numerous museums.

Room Tip: The 2 bedroom units are great.

I recently stayed here at the end of July for 3 nights on a school sports tour and it was perfect for us, breakfast was lovely & plentiful, staff were very helpful. Free water, tea & coffee & wifi is an excellent feature. I stayed in an apartment for 6 people, consisting of 3 rooms with 2 single beds in them & a kitchen & living room area, everything was spacious, clean & comfortable. The security is very good with guards & gates to enter the complex. There seemed to be a lot of other sports tours there so I would recommend it to any other sports tours, as well as groups of friends, but maybe not couples or elderly people. It is right under table mountain so it is in a good location to be close to many attractions and it is a thing to boast about also!
