“A great central location, affordable and well worth our stay there.”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

This hotel is conveniently located being central and based on Greenmarket Square which houses an array of stalls selling all sorts of African merchandise. It is a thriving market surrounded on its perimeter with many cafes' and other eateries to tempt all appetites. The hotel is smart, comfortable and boasts a small gym, plunge pool and deck area on the 8th floor terrace. This overlooks the Lions Head. Spectacular on a good clear day. The restaurant is competitively priced and the food we found to be excellent both in quality and quantity. The buffet is a must at 155 rand. (About £11).Rooms are comfortable with big beds and ample space for luggage etc. We stayed as part of a 3 week Garden Route trip and would have no hesitation in recommending it. 3 night board only £140. Can't be bad. Ask for a front aspect room and watch Cape Town wake up and work. Great.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the square if possible.

Wow where to begin?
Inn On The Square is such a beautiful upmarket hotel with warm friendly staff. They are alway there to assist with a smile and the food is to die for. What a great team!!! I cant find anything to criticize about it. Amazing view of Table Mountain from the really spacious bedroom and lovely pool deck on the roof of the hotel or relax in the cigar lounge and watch the game. Safe to walk around the area and everything is at your fingertips.
We had such an amazing time and we hope to see you again soon!

We had a nice two day stay at the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
The location of the hotel was excellent as it is right on green market square and next to Long street where there is something for everyone when it comes to night life.

The hotel has a very small swimming pool on the roof top with a few sun beds, maybe not ideal for someone who is planning to enjoy the sun the whole day, but it is still a great place to soak up some sun after a long day outside before leaving off for the evening.

The hotel provides a breakfast buffet, however it is at an extra charge to the room. Wifi is also available, but only for 30 minutes for free.

Room Tip: If you get a room facing the market, it is fun to watch the market being set up in the morning and r...

i stayed with my family at Inn on The Square over the Christmas in 2012, the hotel is conveniently
located for a tourist intending to use the Tour buses, with the pick up point just a few meters away. We were able to go shopping in town , no need to hire a cab as shops are close by. The rooms were kept clean except that the bathrooms in the rooms we used were a bit small, discussed this with hotel management who advised we could have been upgraded to a bigger one. My children though enjoyed every thing about their stay. A nice place to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 7th floor , good views and quiet.

Good location on the greenmarket square, a little but nice swimmingpool on the roof and an amazing view on the table mountain. Very little bathroom and very difficult acces to internet.
Money was stolen out of our safe in the room and the data of my credit card where used also.(for 2000 euros)
I was in the police office and they are still investigating our case but I am back in Belgium since the 24 th of december and I have still no solution.

Room Tip: One of the renovated rooms

This hotel is situated bang in the middle of greenmarket square, which is a main tourist attraction and possibly the centre of cape town. You can easily walk from here to most of the museums and gardens in Cape town. Long street is just behind the hotel where you can party all night long. There are a lot of grocery stores, cafes and foreign exchange shops located within meters of the hotel.

The rooms albeit, a little small, are comfortable and equipped with most facilities, except a mini bar. The staff is polite and courteous. Special mention to this guy at the reception names Cibo. The breakfast is a lavish spread and is totally worth paying extra for.

Make sure you use the valet service for parking your car, otherwise you might have to park it on the street, which might not be safe.

Room Tip: Choose of one of the rooms facing the square.

With the Inn on The Square one can't go wrong with exploring the city. It is centrally located with street shopping right outside the doors of the hotel, a great place to pick up souvenirs at a bargain price. Breakfast spread is nice and quality of food is good. The waiters and staff are professional and friendly. There is a bit of a fight to get a Square facing room with a view of the Table Mountain but overall the size & comfort of the room is great. The hotel is within walking distance of the " Hop on Hop Off" bus stop which makes it very convenient to get on a ride to go to Table Mountain or Signal Hill. You can also choose to go for a sunset tour and watch as the sun sets over the Atlantic Ocean.

Many shopping attractions are within walking distance. They include Woolworth's, St. George's Mall among others.

For the foodie in you, restaurants around the hotel offer many options. Right across the street from the hotel is FORK, a very popular Tapas bar. excellent food, ambiance and helpful waiters.

The V& A waterfront gives you many options for spending your time and indulge your taste buds after a shopping spree.

Would definitely like to visit again.
