Protea Hotel by Marriott Cape Town North Wharf
Ranked #56 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 7, 2009

Really good location for both the waterfront and the town. Exceptionally spacious apartments and a very easy to use underground car park.
I would certainly recommend this hotel.
The only downside was that I did have quite the worst room service meal I have ever had .

Great Hotel, great service - the only thing I have to complain about is the number of times a maid comes to change the towels etc. And they change the bed every day - not very enviromentally friendly. But very nice.

Donot use the Distinctive Choice Cleaners that is in the ICON building - incredibly bad service, they wash clothes instead of dry cleaning, they ruined a few things of mine and did not take responsibility....

Been here a few times on business and look forward to staying here. The staff and breakfast are fine and the rooms are spacious and really good - both times I've had a suite with a kitchen and washing machine which is really useful if you're staying for a bit. It's an easy enough walk to the center or waterfront. At night, there are a couple of restaurants directly opposite that you can walk to safely.

Great apartment hotel, with fantastic spacious rooms; studio, 2 & 3 bedroomed. Great front office service, with a fantastic intimate breakfast served. Well recommended. If anything negatoive, maybe not as central as some re V & A Waterfront, Atlantic seaboard etc and also getting a bit pricey.

I loved this hotel. We were picked up from the airport by a staff member and we got lots of good information as we drove to our hotel. Once at our hotel the staff was friendly and check in was quick. We went to our room which was huge with a full size kitchen included with a washer/dryer. Breakfast was good with lots of choice. We were right across from The V&A which was very convenient. You do have to take a taxi to the beach but it is relatively inexpensive. The only downside to this hotel is that the pool area is very small with very few lounge chairs. Other then that this hotel is the perfect place to enjoy Cape Town from.

The title of this review is really the reason for my 5-star rating. True, the pool area is a little cramped, and very exposed to the howling Cape Town winds, and the hotel could benefit from having a proper bar/cafe area rather than just the restaurant. But the location is great (walking distance from both the V&A Waterfront and the CBD areas, in between the two), the staff are friendly and helpful and the rooms are outstanding. Extremely comfortable beds, very well equipped kitchen, nice big balcony (although no table/chairs) and lots of daylight in the spacious living/dining area. And all impeccably clean.
Very good buffet breakfast too. We never had dinner in the hotel, but the restaurant always seemed busy in the evening.

I stayed in a two-bedroom apartment.
The apartment is spacious, with all amenities.
From a value perspective I think that it is sllightly overpriced in comparison with other alternatives in the cbd
