Great value funky hotel superb location

Best ovation in Cape Town just moments from all the great bars and cafes of Bree St and Kloof St. Handy underground parking and loft apartments are superb value for money for the duplex split level space. Only downside is the air con was noisy!

It is a unique Hotel!

I went to a conference in Cape Town International Conference Centre; it takes less than 10 minutes in a taxi (2 km). The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was spacious, clean and with beautiful views of Table Mountain. I must admit that only went to the hotel to sleep so I can not evaluate the other services like restaurant or swimming pool.

Great chic hotel

Loved this hotel and would definitely stay again. It's quirky but in a nice way. The rooms are clean and comfortable but fairly small, but don't let this put you off. Really helpful staff. Great food.

Good value, small room

With the flight package, the hotel rate was very reasonable. Room is small, however, and the office area is poor (uncomfortable chair and small table), so if you have anything to work on in your room, then this hotel is probably not for you. Staff very friendly and efficient. The air of 'urban chic' is slightly over done.

Great decor in this hotel - crazy!

Only downside with this hotel is the size of the standard room....another few feet would have been nice. Great location - Long Street is 5 minutes walk which is fine during the day but you need to take a taxi at night

Support by hotel staff way beyond the usual

The hotel is nice and well run, a hotel which is geared towards private travelers and not business people, I would say. It is a good choice in Cape Town, even tough as a tourist one might go for a hotel which is closer to the Waterfront or the beaches. We had an accident during our stay at the hotel and the staff and management were excellent in handling the incident, getting medical assistance and helping us with an extended stay (in a fully booked hotel) etc. We were extremly impressed by the professionality but also the warm interest of the staff the following days. In such moments you realize if you have been in good hands - we have been!

Stylisches Party Hotel in guter Lage

Das Hotel hat tolle Zimmer mit moderner Einrichtung. Die Deluxe Suiten im Nachbargebäude mit 2 Schlafzimmern sind optimal für 4 Personen. Frühstück klasse, aber teuer. Pool klein, nur 3 Liegen und keine Dusche. Die Lage ist optimal für Leute die abends was unternehmen möchten. Unzählige Restaurants und Kneipen in der Kloof, Bree, Loop und Long Street. Am Freitag und Samstag DJ in der Lobby. Sehr viel Personal im Servicebereich, aber keiner kümmert sich richtig um die Gäste. Es dauert oft 15 Minuten bis man sein Getränk bekommt.

Nuorten bilettäjien hotelli

Hotellissa on joka ilta kauhea meno ravintolassa. Valitettavasti kaikki meteli kuuluu myös huoneseen käytäviltä ja ulkoa. Jo pelkkä tuulen humina tulee ikkunoista läpi. Huoneet ovat myös erittäin pieniä. Valokuvat valehtelevat paljon. Henkilökunta oli aika tympeää muutamaa poikkeusta lukuunottamatta. Ennen kuin valitset tämän hotellin, niin kannattaa tarkistaa saako hotellia Seapointin tai waterfrontin läheisyydestä. Tällä hotellin kupeessa ei ollut yhtään mitään. Hinta/laatu on pielessä!!

Great Hotel - with style and an exquisit kitchen

This Hotel has a unique flair you feel from the moment you are entering the Lobby. The interior design is fantastic. It has a nice view on the table mountain, a great lounge and a fantastic restaurant. You get the best Milkshakes in the world there and the food is really good. The staff is more than friendly and helps you with everything. The greatest place to stay in Cape Town!
