Spent 3 nights on a business trip in November 13. Great comfy room, view across the Fedex Depot to Table Mountain was interesting. Despite being so close to the Airport, you never heard a plane landing or taking off. The outside area at the back was still being developed, so the walkway and swimming pool were not ready for use.

But, it was an interesting place to stat. Ask for a tour of the hotel's eco-friendly features (love the basement car park murals). Breakfast was v nice. Evening meals were a little fussy, but good quality. The best part? The lovely wet-dry shower rooms.

Free shuttle to the airport. Free wifi. Very friendly staff. Would recommend it for a business trip. But its a bit isoloted for tourist purposes.

Room Tip: Chose view towards the mountain.

Dear TimTruluck,

The lack of noise would be due to our double-glazed windows. Whether one can hear the planes is always a question that comes up and we are gratefully you pointed it out in your review.

Any of the front office staff, will gladly offer a tour of the green facilities of the hotel, upon request. We love to share our passion and knowledge with the public.

Thank you for compliments and we hope you stay with us again in the near future.

The hotel was very new, modern and fully equipped with the latest and greatest. My favorite things about the hotel were its many green initiatives. For example, they provide recycling bins for compost and plastics. I like that the toilets use recycled shower water. Because they are a green hotel, I do not see an area for activities pamphlets, which would generate more trash/recycle. By having limited printing usage, this helps manage their green initiative. All the hotel's information is available from the TV monitor, from the food menu to the weather. You earn points called a verdino for not adjusting the room temperature and for hanging towels back on the rack. Complimentary water and small bottle of whole milk are provided daily. I think my favorite part about the hotel, was the exercise room -- using any of the cardio machines along the wall helps powers up the hotel!

Now for the recommendations for an even better stay - The room we stayed was really small and usage of space was poor. No dressers, but empty shelves/holes which don't hide clothes and make organizing difficult. There was a closet (with a safe) to hang shirts and coats which also had more shelves. Also no real place to put luggage as the night stand had, empty holes, no drawers.

Would I stay here again? Yes, for sure!! All hotels should follow Hotel Verde's green initiative. It's the way of the future. We had a rental car to get around for a few days, but not needed on first/last travel day as the hotel can pick you up and drop you off at the airport. Overall, our stay was comfortable, staff was friendly and helpful, and food was delicious.

Thank you for the thoughtful response. You have taken much care in offer feedback to us and fellow users.

We have such passion, from our owner down to all the staff, for all our green initiatives and love it when guests notice all the small details we reached for.

Unfortunately, our rooms are all complete, cupboards and all! But I would suggest if visiting us in future, to request a studio room which offers that bit more space, full closet and lengthy dressing table area.

Thank you for the words of recommendation and we hope you and your family can visit us again.

A brand new modern Hotel situated at Cape Town's International Airport. The hotel has been designed from the ground up to be a modern and "green" hotel (i.e. energy efficient, and environment friendly). The rooms are fairly spacious and the bathroom is open plan (with a separate cubicle for the toilet)....Great if you are on your own, not so great if there are two of you. The area around the hotel is not great, so you do not want to be walking out of the front door at anytime. However, if you have an early morning flight, or you arrive late at night, this will be a very convenient place to stay.

Good Day JDDL,

Thank you for your compliments. We are proudly a green hotel and believe this is a must for future buildings!

We have two types of same size standards rooms: open bathroom and closed bathroom (and, as you mentioned; a separate cubicle). Please remember to book the closed option – if this is your preference. I do recommend open if you are travelling alone.

While the surrounding area is an industrial area, we do offer a beautiful fenced garden area and jogging trial for guest to enjoy and complimentary shuttles to the airport, should you need to pop to the shops. We are just in the final stages of completing our pool.

Please come visit us soon in the Mother City – Durban is not so far away. We look forward to hosting you again.

Kind Regards,
Roxanne Norman

We wish to extend our sincere compliments to Hotel Verde for really making our stay a wonderful experience. We stayed there for 2 nights (29, 30 November 2013) and we can unequivocally say that this is a 4star establishment with 5star service! The rooms are spacious and highly comfortable, the dining is superb - they absolutely have something for every taste bud, even people with vegan lifestyles! But really, the best part is the amazingly friendly staff - from the porter, house-keeping, front-desk etc - really friendly and oh so helpful! We shall be back and we definitely highly recommend this establishment to anybody who would like to be pampered and have value for their money!

This hotel is only about 4 months in operation, but all the teething problems have been sorted out successfully and it now provides an excellent stay. It is bright and very modern with some of the most advanced energy saving and eco friendly systems in place. When arriving Cape Town late at night, there is probably no better place to stay since this hotel is just a few hundred meters away from the terminal building and comes at an affordable price. Highly recommended.

Dear Kabols,

Thank you for your recommendation. We have been so fortunate with the amount of support and recommendations we have received.
Correct, we are a very new hotel and we hope to do things differently – the right way and the green way.

We are an ideal hotel to be your very first stop in Cape Town after a long flight, and why not enjoy your entire stay; Cape Town Central is only a 15 minute drive away.

We are glad your enjoyed your stay and our green initiatives and please come visit us again the next time you are in the area.

Kind Regards,
Roxanne Norman
