This hotel is fantastic value for money, you can't beat it! The hotel may need to be slightly modernised however if you are looking for cheap accommodation in a good location you won't be disippointed.

We booked the hotel despite seeing some poor reviews because the price was too good to ignore.
We were pleasantly surprised. The view from the delux room over the harbour was fantastic. The rooms were clean. Breakfasts good with a wide variety. The pool area good for relaxing. The revolving restaurant served some of the best value quality food we ate in South Africa. If visiting Cape Town again we would definitely stay at the Ritz.

I had booked a delux room but was given a standard room, so make sure you check your booking. Staff were helpful but they do look out for extra money maikng such as if they book your taxis they get a kick back and if you ask about trips make sure they dont book it before you say so.
The Room was clean and bright with comfortable bed good size bathroom and tea and coffee was fine. It is a bit dated but clean and fine. Breakfast Buffet would compare very favourably with most other hotels , good variey of hot food and plenty of fresh fruit , salad, cold cuts etc.
Pool area great but crowded.
Location is quite good , many restaurants within walking distance and very good value for money so overall well worth the low price paid.

Faded slightly in its decor however i really enjoyed my stay at this hotel , there were 8 of us and everyone was pleased with it. Nice restuarant and breakfast , pool is lovely , staff (with one exception) were excellent and very friendly.

Rooms come with cable tv and have excellent views over the bay and the under construction world cup stadium.

I would definitely stay here again . good stuff

We stayed at the Ritz for 10 days. The location was great but we experienced too many problems with the Ritz. First day we were there, the maid stole sweets from our room and money was also missing. We reported this and the maid did admit to taking the sweets, money is still yet to be solved. The room was out dated, the toilet wouldn't flush and there was water leaking all over the bathroom floor. The TV stopped working and every morning there was constant noise from works being carried out within the hotel. Overall it is the worst hotel we've ever stayed at and would not recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Cape town.
