“Nice hotel in good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

From breakfast to a good night's sleep, this hotel has it! Outside the doors is the "Market Square" for a fun something to take back home.
We enjoyed evenings with friends in the bar and found many restaurants close by that were very good, although we also had breakfast, lunch and dinner at the hotel on occasion.
I would recommend this hotel.

Thank you for the great review - we value your feedback and this is testament to what we strive to accomplish.

We are very fortunate to have a good location to experience Cape Town and all it has to offer.

We do hope that it will not be too long before you return to Cape Town and of course Three Cities Inn on the Square.

This hotel is wonderful! Perfect location for sight seeing, nice rooms, comfy beds, spatious showers and the markets are literally directly in front of the hotel (I spent way too much money here... the markets are great!). I stayed here on two separate weekends and both weekends the staffs service and the cleanliness of the rooms was impressive. I would highly recommend staying here if you don't want to spend a fortune but still want a lovely hotel!
Although the WIFI was extremely slow..

Nine travelers were booked into this hotel for four nights at the end of our trip to southern Africa. Rooms were slightly small but certainly adequate for our stay. Shower was outstanding...big enough for two. Loved bed linen. Hotel staff were outstanding with any request we had...booking trip to Robben Island. Breakfast buffet was good but room could get a little crowded at times. Had dinner for six on last night and food was very good. Loved having the craft market just outside the front door. How convenient! Easy walking distance to South African Jewish Museum with a Holocaust section and the Iziko South African National Gallery.

Room Tip: Our room was 203 and had no street noise and close to elevator.

Booked into this hotel by OAT on Southern Africa trip. Nice breakfast buffet, never were here for lunch, had one very nice supper on our last night - too tired to go out and were pleasantly surprised by quality and presentation. Housekeeping could have been better, forgot the top sheet one night, forgot the second bath towel one day. Had no problem with noise from the market. Our room was on the 4th floor and had double windows. Staff pleasant, not as friendly as those at lodges in the bush. Market was great for getting the things you forgot to buy earlier.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Hotel.

We are delighted to read that your dining experiences with us at Dish Restaurant met your expectations. We are over the next couple of weeks introducing a new menu which we are sure will enhance the dining experience even more .

Rest assured that the service delivery from our Housekeeping department has been addressed as this is not our normal standard . Please accept our apologies for these shortcomings.

We do hope that you will be able to visit us again.

The location of the hotel is great for sight seeing but lack ambiance. The staff is cordial but not warm- it felt like you are staying in a block of flats. Be aware that parking would cost you an additional R75. Breakfast is ok.

Greetings from Inn on the Square

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review for our Hotel.

We do pride ourselves with consistent high standards of service and constantly change the way we operate to ensure complete guest satisfaction, it is only through feedback received from our guests that we are able to achieve this. Our front line staff are busy with retraining with regards to warmth and empathy and going the extra mile - I am sure the next time you come to stay you will see a marked improvement.

Our Dish restuarant is in the process of upgrading and enhancing the offerings we provide and you will be delighted to experience it - I am sure.

Parking does cost R75.00 a day and our team will valet park your car for you in the nearby car park and will fetch your car at any time that you require it.

We do hope to see you back at the Inn on the Square in the not too distant future.

Kind Regards

We were booked into this hotel by OAT. The best thing is the location as you can walk to all the museums & there is a market right across the street. Also, the buffet breakfast is very good.

The room we had was big enough for two, but so poorly designed. There is a cubby, bit no shelves, there was one double bed & one single bed next to each othrr. Why not have 2 singles or one queen? This would add space. The bathroom is tiny. You can hardly close the door. The side mirror was cracked & when we first got to our room we had a tissue box with 3 tissues left. They do not replace toilet paper unless requested and also forgot to give us new hand towels & shampoo. They did however bring these quickly. This hotel could be better with a little more attention to the smaller things.

Greetings from Inn on the Square.

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review on the Inn on the Square.

We also believe our location is just the best !. We are pleased you enjoyed the buffet breakfast as well.

I must apologise for the short comings in the service provided by Housekeeping. Retraining has taken place in this department and I am sure should you return to Cape Town and our Hotel you will see a marked improvement.

Our Hotel has twin bedded rooms, double bedded rooms and family rooms. Our twin rooms do have 3/4 beds in the rooms, the double bedded room has 1 queensize bed and then we have family rooms which have 1 queen size bed and then 2 3/4 beds. For a nominal fee all our guests can be upgraded to a family room (subject to availablity) which are more spacious and have a larger bathroom. Please do make your request via your travel agent.

We do thank you for your support and hope to welcome you back in the near future .

Kind Regards

Fell into this place by accident. No idea what the hotel is like but it looked really nice. But in the restaurant, the Inn on the Square, we were delighted by both the food and the service. Quick and tasty food. Option to sit inside or out. Was getting a bit cold by the time we got there, so we opted for inside. If the square market had still been on, we'd have had a perfect view of all the hustle and bustle.
