CapeTown. Good location

Pleasantly surprised as it was Xmas day and a lot of local restaurants were closed but Hippo gave us vouchers to buy a good breakfast at a nearby one that was open. Long Street within walking distance.

Das Hotel liegt in Mitten der City. Bars und Restaurants rund herum gelegen. Wir fühlten uns sicher, gibt aber sicherlich auch Sichere plätze. Parkplatz abgeschlossen deshalb Sicherheit gewährleistet. Die Einriichtung ist okay. Es ist ein 3 Sterne Hotel für uns. Das Frühstück haben wir nie genutzt da es im Restaurant neben an ist. Der Betrag ist vorgegeben- deshalb lohnt es sich kaum mit Frühstück zu buchen. Das Personal war hilfsbereit, aber nicht zuvorkommend= wir mussten erfragen wann das Frühstück ist, der Pool wurde nicht erwähnt haben wir auch nicht gefunden, Sicherheitstips wurden uns nicht mitgeteilt. Was super war wird durften ein Zimmer benutzen bei Ankunft morgens um 9.00Uhr da unser Zimmer noch nicht frei war obwohl wir mit dem Hotel vorgängig den Check in um 10.00Uhr abgemacht haben. Zuverlässigkeit mittelmässig.
