Hotel Verde Cape Town International Airport

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 16, 2014

My daughter raved about this new green hotel. So whilst in Cape Town last week we visited Verde.
No directions and we got lost. You can see this idiotic hotel from everywhere.Finally we arrived and more silly admin problems.
However the Front desk staff were super. And behold the rooms were fantastic. Servise was excellent.
The front desk supervisor took us on a tour of this great Green Hotel that makes energy from the wind, the sun and even from gym machines.Rain water is collected and used on site.
Even the bathroom water is recycled to flush the toilets.Super.Orchids everwher and it has its own featured vertical garden wall inside the bar.How cool
The eco pool was the highlight with the running track going through the hotel wetlands.
Breakfast with its own garden vegetables and health juices was outstanding.Free airport transfer with excited staff was a feather on this hotel'
Will come back soon.

Room Tip: Any one. The executive is for a few days stay,but the deluxe is great for overnight

Ten green points to the Hotel Verde team for thinking of and implementing so many green details in this brand new building. Loved that you can pump out green energy in their gym, that they recycle everything and used concrete saver bricks in the construction. Loved especially that the very friendly staff have been trained into green thinking - and that you can earn your own points or 'verdinos' by taking a leaf out of their book - reuse towels, go easy on the aircon and rack up energy on the cycle machines. Nice. Esp nice green graffiti art in the basement car park!

Exellent beautiful and spacious room, great shower and bed, very complete breakfast, nice gym, very close to the airport and convinient for who has a lay over/conexion flight.
Efficient staff.
The only thing was under expectation was the lack of a free transfer to the airport, which is very close by, like many other hotels offer.

Dear Ms iana_abreu,

Thank you for your feedback on our facilities and great staff. They check Tripadvisor regularly and will be proud.

We do in fact offer a complimentary shuttle to and from the airport between 04h00-00h00: http://hotelverde.com/hotel-shuttle.

I offer my apologies that this service was not efficiently communicated to you.
Please be sure to request a transfer on your next stay with us.

Staff friendly and welcoming. Appreciated free airport transfer and wi-fi. A few minor issues, I spoke up and staff kindly resolved. A proper hotel and loved that new smell. Shame no free transfer to CBD but no matter, hotel organised reasonable and safe option.

Good Day Pacia2013,

You are absolutely right, we need to offer a complimentary shuttle to the City Centre twice daily to cater to the travellers that wish to explore our beautiful city.

And, it is a service that we offer! A shuttle goes twice a daily to the V&A Waterfront. I will have a chat to the all front of house staff and ensure that they are all aware of this, to correctly help our guests.

The shuttle departs at 10:00 in the morning and then again at 18:00. These times are seasonally and subject to change.

We stayed there a night because of an early flight the next day. My husband was not too keen to stay in a hotel instead of our friends in Stellenbosh but in hindsight he doesn't regret it... We all had a great stay, this hotel was well worth it: we found staff very helpful, the room was spacious and very, very comfortable, breakfast was awesome.

Great accommodation for an overnight stay anything more and the flaws begin to appear.
Searched the first day looking for the non existent pool, spent a fortune getting in and out of V&A Waterfront. The staffs knowledge of the local tourist industry is non existent. Eventually hired a car and got some tourist information from a stall at the car rental place at the airport because the Hotel Verdes staffs knowledge was zero.
Order your dinner and ask for dessert after 10pm and it will gracefully explained how the kitchen is now shut. Bar supposed to shut at 12pm? Try ordering a drink at 23.40 to find management saying they are closed and cashed up. I went to complain then they said yes we can get you one drink, so I ordered a drink 30 mins later they still can't find keys to open bar. Two young guys got turned away because they wanted a can of coke at 11.50pm Absolute joke of a hotel with such great potential.
Gym is good enough, washroom facilities great in it, pity there was no towels or paper towels to clean the equipment you were working out on. Again I hope the management read this and put a simple couple basic needs of travellers.

Room Tip: Rooms are all high standard ask for water as it's not replaced unless you ask
