“Nothing special but for the price great location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2014

We stayed here over the new years holiday since it was the only reasonably priced hotel left in the city. Rooms were clean but dated with worn and frayed towels. Breakfast is in the shopping mall next door which while weird is not remotely inconvenient. Two issues: first, when trying to check in, the only person at the front desk, checked the couple in front of us in, then escorted them to their room, came back, checked in another couple that had just walked in, escorted them to their room, and then finally checked us in. I have never been in a hotel that has the person who checks you in at the front desk, escort you to your room. This is incredibly time consuming and not necessary for a hotel with a simple set up like St Georges. Even if the hotel prides itself on this type of customer service, when you have multiple customers, waiting it is not appropriate to leave the front desk when there is no one else available. Second issue, the hotel has no bathroom in the lobby, therefore you must go all the way to your room. Overall, it's an inexpensive hotel for Cape Town central, excellent location for walking to multiple areas of the city, but has some areas that need improvement.

The hotel has a very good location, quite close to the Water Front and Long Street, which are the main attractions in the city centre. It is clean, however a bit outdated.
We found reception and concierge services to be outstanding. A big thank to SADICK who was extremely helpful and always ready to give a good advice.
The only thing that requires urgent improvement is the breakfast.

Hotel is located in city center area. very near to Longe st., restaurants at walkable distance. Personally I felt bathroom is slightly smaller, mainly the shower, but clean. Receptionist is very responsive, easy to get cabs to any places. Situated in walkable distance to train station.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views of Cape Town

This is a good hotel for visitors to Cape Town looking for somewhere central, at a good price.
The infrastructure of the hotel is a little bit aged (bathrooms, elevators, communal areas) but well-maintained and kept very clean.
I liked this hotel because unlike many in the area, it offers parking off-street to guests for a small additional fee.
Staff at the hotel are extremely helpful and friendly.
A little bit unusual to have a breakfast in the mall next door, but this breakfast was perfectly adequate for holiday guests.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have windows on two sides which offer more views. Ideally try to get a room facing towa...

My friend and I stayed here over the festive period. Staff were very friendly and attentive to our needs. The hotel was what you would expect from a basic 3*, however there were a few problems! The lift was very dodgy and didnt really work properly - which meant we couldnt get down from the 10th floor unless we used the fire escape. Breakfast was served in the mall next door which wasnt a problem at all because it was very close. However there are no bar or restaurant facilities in the hotel for the evening. Also the only toilets available (apart from those in your room) are on the 6th floor.
On a positive note this hotel is centrally located near to Long Street and the markets. It is about a half hour walk to the V&A waterfront.

I stayed at the St George Hotel for 2 nights during Xmas 2013. Situated close to Long Street and the train station the hotel itself is more of a business hotel than a tourist place but perfectly suited my needs for the short stay. The reception team are very professional and very efficient and the concierge service was excellent. The hotel is very formal and the rooms reflect this, no frills but very welcoming with a normal sized bathroom a small table and chairs set along with a small TV etc. My room was a Twin but the 2 single beds were pushed together to create a double which as fine by me.
As there is no restaurant at the hotel you get breakfast vouchers at a small deli next door giving you a free buffet style breakfast. This was lovely as the deli is a nice place and the food was excellent.
Simply put no frills but catered for everything you need for a short stay.
Cape Town is such an amazing place and there is so much to do you really won’t be spending much time in your room anyway so the hotel doesn’t need to be too fancy.
