OK hotel for central Cape Town stay

Pros: Decor
Cons: Provide a hair drier in bathroom Provide free wi-fi
Location: To see the old Cape Town, this is the place to be. The old Cape Gardens, Parliament and "Cape Malay Quarter" are all within walking distance.
Booked the hotel, because I liked the look of the decor and I wanted to be located centrally, rather than be down at the waterfront. The hotel met almost all expectations. Unfortunately, the floor we were assigned to had an almost constant smell of drains, which dampened the overall experience. Wi-fi was also not free, which seems to be a common problem in South Africa. Often hotels advertise wi-fi as available, but then you have to pay exhorbitant amounts for poor connection speeds. This hotel was one of those!

Great location

Great location. Large room with kitchenette, but no utensils so confirm these are available in advance. We were on 9th floor so views of table mountain spectacular and stepped out of room onto patio/sun terrace/pool. Excellent staff, very professional. Loved the piano player over breakfast each morning, nice start to the day. Good choice at breakfast and the best steak in a long time at the in-house Butchers Grill. Would recommend.

Good value, centrally located hotel

I think we have stayed in this hotel on 5 occasions and always helpful and friendly staff. Great central location. Just 3 things to be aware of: no free wi-fi, parking costs R60 per night and the roof top pool is only a splash pool and not for serious swimmers. The rooms are a good size,and well equipped. Will stay again.

Lovely hotel - good launch pad for Cape visit

Only crticism was that the air con unit was very noisy - either needed replacing or a good service - otherwise the stay was excellent - would stay there again.

Standard rooms were small with no view at all - but adequate for short stay. Breakfast choice was okay but tables not cleared quickly so had to wait to sit down. Piano player was a nice touch though. Noisy air conditioner unit was replaced promptly. Good bar - one bartender great one not at all helpful. Overall a mixed bag but better value (and rooms) could be found in nearby hotel

10 dagen op vakantie. Een uitstekende locatie t.o.v. allerlei activiteiten in en rondom Kaapstad. Zeker een aanrader, zowel met volwassenen als kinderen. Schoon en fris en vriendelijk personeel en zeer betaalbaar.

vriendelijk personeel maar geheel niet klantgericht

Basis accomodatie, ligging ok. Vriendelijk personeel maar geheel niet klantgericht. Wake up calls worden niet uitgevoerd en toen de pick up service niet verscheen, moesten we alsnog betalen terwijl we zelf een taxi vanuit het bliegveld moesten regelen. Niet te veel verwachten dus, dan zit je goed voor het geld. Voor wifi moet men trouwens betalen
