This hotel was recommended to me by STA Travel, which was the only travel agents I had access to at the time (I was travelling around SA). I realised why this is when I arrived. This is essentially a student residence and was full of north american students when I was there, to the point that I felt quite aware that I was one of the only non-students at breakfast in the mornings.
Rooms are basic, although clean and I had a nice view, but with thin walls. I could hear people shouting and running through the corridors late at night.
The hotel was one of the cheapest I could find, althugh for a little bit more money, I would have gotten a genuine hotel with more atmosphere.
The location is "great" if you want to stay right in the VA Waterfront. But remember that this is tourist central through and through, and you will not experience any genuine culture here. It's packed full of soul-less tourist restaurants and trinket shops.
I regretted not selecting a hotel in Camps Bay or even elsewhere in city centre.
