Protea Hotel by Marriott Cape Town Victoria Junction
Ranked #59 of 110 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Reviewed September 21, 2012

What a quirky, vibey, happy place to stay in Cape Town! The location is great, the decor is fantastic and the little touches are inspiring. Great conference venue, despite the busy lobby it is very easy to grab a seat there and get lost in your work, with helpful staff within beckoning distance. Love the spacious loft rooms with double-volume breathing room.

this hotel had a good location close to the docks. the rooms were somewhat small but adequate. the v iews were not very impressive, and the hotel was full of tour groups. one strange thing was that there was a charge for kleenex if you needed more.

Room Tip: higher rooms are better

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in June and had a really good stay. Travelling with a 4 month old baby in winter meant that we were indoors a lot; it was very useful to have the loft room at the hotel because it is very spacious. With the lounge, dining and kitchen area separate from the bedroom, we had lots of space for the little one. The rooms are clean and modern with all the amenities we needed.

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. They assisted us in calling a Dr to consult telephonically for our little one's cold. Room service was good and the food lovely. The hotel is within walking distance to the shops.

We had a great time and will stay there again.

Room Tip: Corner loft room is very spacious.

I have just returned from the Protea Victoria Junction where i stayed for 4nts on my honeymoon. The room was a loft room on 2 floors and was really fantastic. There was 2 flatscreen tvs & 2 bathrooms. There is no fantastic view BUT the modern room & location compensates this. It takes approx 10 mins to walk to V&A Waterfront or 3mins in a taxi. The walk is safe as government employed security guards on found on every corner. In fact i found this particular area very safe. As a nice touch the hotel gave us a cake & wine to complimentary to celebrate our honeymoon.

I would definently recommend this to anyone who wants a modern, central, stylish hotel.

The hotel was really great. It was cool and modern and a duplex/loft. The staff was great. We stayed for our honeymoon and they gave us dessert, champagne and put roses and candles all over our room. It was so thoughtful. The hotel is within walking distance to the waterfront, but it was a little far for my preferences. They did have a shuttle. Best complimentary breakfast buffet I've ever seen.

Clean and comfortable rooms but missed a fridge or minibar in the room.
Staff is very helpfull, we could even securely store our luggage for one night in the hotel.
Provide 100MB free wifi per room but the wifi signal is not that good in every room.
Location of the hotel is super.You can safely walk to the waterfront or Cape Town railway station.
Waterfront is only a 10 minutes walk.Spar supermarket is nearby.Always taxis in front of the hotel and they drive on the meter.Restaurants we would recommend in the area: Beluga ( just around the corner of the hotel), Hussar Grill (for a good steak),Voila ( for breakfast), Andiamo ( for salads).
Would come again.

Stayed at this hotel on recent business trip. Staff very friendly and accomodating allowing my to check in early after a long haul flight.
I was given a Loft room that was rather large for my single requirements but none the less very well appointed with TV's on both levels with a great range of programmes especially if you like sport. WIFI access was free for first 100Mbit per day but I found that it dropped out continually when connecting to my business secure server.
I ate in the hotel restauraunt both evenings i was there. The menu is quite limited but good value none the less, with a good choice of wines.
Location of hotel is excellent with easy access to motorways and Capetown Waterfront.
If I return to Capetown on business in future I will certainly consider using this hotel again.
