Adderley Hotel

Reviewed September 2, 2014

We stayed two nights. Safe parking garage for around R40 per night extra. Walked to Long Street and surrounds. Very interesting area. Clean studio, crisp linen, great shower, fluffy towels. A bit noisy if you stay on the street side, but not too bothered as one would expect that staying in a city. New kitchen and appliances (microwave, kettle, toaster, bar fridges, no cooker), great for picnic type meals, just need to add a small carving knife and scissors. Friendly service, had a bit of trouble to get onto the WiFi, but was assisted by reception immediately (buy vouchers). Will stay again anytime! Good value for money!

We stayed a total of 6 nights at the Adderley during our stay in South Africa. It's a great hotel with surprisingly up-dated, modern decor. We paid for an upgraded room, but not the highest priced suits. All three rooms we stayed in were very clean, comfortable and very large! The location is ideal for exploring downtown. [However, downtown Cape Town isn't large and many of the downtown hotels would be acceptable in terms of location.] The staff at the Adderley was friendly and helpful. Upon arriving for the second leg of our stay, our bed was not comfortable. Because no other room was available, the hotel staff switched out the bed immediately. Impressive! Our only complaint would be the restaurant. It may have been nice, but the prices were very high. There are many excellent, but cheaper, dining options near-by. The hotel is within walking distance of the main train station. Also, it is right next to Government Park and the Slave Museum.

Room Tip: The upgraded rooms are absolutely worth the money...some of them, particularly those on the top floo...

We found this hotel from an outstanding special on Booking.com and it is walking distance from all that is hip and happening.
When we got to the hotel the staff gave us a free upgrade to one of their luxury rooms. We stayed on the third floor in room number 2. The room was nicely decorated, clean and spacious with a massive bath to relax in. Really great!!!
The hotel is on a main road, so I do think that it can get a bit noisy in the week. As we were there on a weekend the road were quiet and the noise from the street minimal.
Some other problems that I read on this site about the hotel were that some people had issues with parking, but really there is no issue if you just follow instructions. To locate the hotel’s parking garage you must drive to the back of the hotel and enter the parking garage. Drive up to Level F and park in a ‘Adderley Hotel’ parking bay. From there you just take to lift down to reception. The hotel does charge a fee of R45 per day for parking, but it is definitely worth it.
The hotel staff were super friendly, professional and they really when out of their way to be helpful. We would have liked staying longer and we will definitely return.

We enjoyed our anniversary at the hotel and to our surprise, were upgraded to a luxury suite. Very friendly staff, clean rooms and close to a variety of restaurants, art galleries, museums and the company gardens. The only negative is that we were on the 2nd floor, which can be quite noisy at night with the main road just outside the windows. Other than that, the perfect place for a romantic getaway.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less road noise.

We found the location perfect and central if you want to walk around central Cape Town and to the Waterfront. It also is close to the gardens which is good for leisure. Within walking distance to Long Street which is great for eating and drinking. Rooms were clean and very comfortable, and the staff were fantastic and helpful. If you want to leave a little extra money in your pocket I would suggest staying here, especially if you like to explore on your own. Taxis are easy to get at this location also.

We were very satisfied with the hotel for the price we paid. It's in the central business district, about 20-25 minutes walk to the waterfront. Not great for going back and forth, but taxes were only about $5 each way. We walked during the day when it's safer and took the taxi back at night. Certainly much cheaper than staying at the waterfront.

The rooms were renovated quite well and spacious for what we needed. I like the fact that they had a fridge and microwave for leftover food. The only downside is that the windows let a lot of sound in and there was constant sounds throughout the night which kept us up. If you have ear plugs, then it's a great place.

The suite I stayed in was spacious, comfortable and incredibly affordable. The block itself is nothing special but you are a short walk over to the bars/restaurants on Long Street and are very centrally positioned to take a quick cab ride anywhere in the city. Stayed with a friend and our room was huge (king bed, couch, table, kitchenette, spacious bathroom) and the staff set up a roll-away bed at no extra charge. Don't go here for the food (didn't eat at the restaurant since there are so many other good options around), and the roof deck/pool is nothing to write home about (very small and looks over a busy city), but it's a great place to use as your home base while exploring the city and you get great bang for your buck.
