i've stayed at Urban Chic several times, its a regular location for me when on business in Cape Town.
Generally - friendly, if a little fumbling, staff, clean rooms, excellent cold & hot breakfast included in the price- which, based on the usual R950 room price, is very good value. Usual breakfast in a CPT hotel is going to set you back around R85.
Location cannot be beaten - 2 minutes to anywhere interesting on Long Street. Yes, it can be a little noisy - especially on Friday / Saturday nights- but this is a city hotel, right in the middle of the entertainment area, and that's why you're staying there.
No room service, which is agravating, but approx 15 places to eat on Long Street, so get out the room.
Nice modern rooms / bathrooms, floor to ceiling glass with mountain views.
For about 65GBP - what more do you want? I've stayed in more than a few hotels in Cape Town, this is the only one that doesn't double its rates in tourist season!
