I regularly stay in City LodgeHotel when on business in Cape Town. It is outstanding in quality and value. On my last trip City Lodge was full so Sunsquare was a possibility. It was the first and last time. Awful in all respects. The room was grubby and looked as though it need a good facelift. The beds were uncomfortable....

Spent the night. Standard rooms were spacious. Beds, pillow and duvet were comfortable. Bathroom had shower, bath and all amenities. Strong Airconditioners for the hot day. The staff at Reception, restaurant and bar area were super friendly, professional and efficient. Well priced hotel, centrally located and restaurants and waterfront are just around the corner. I'll be back.

At first we wondered if we had chosen the right hotel as it seemed to be a bit from the centre. Shouldn't have worried. Everything is on the doorstep including a very good small shopping mall. Open top bus passes nearby. Company's Garden is within easy walking distance. Room clean, reasonable size for a city hotel. View from bed of...

The Hotel is competitive. The property is situated in a strategic area in Cape Town. One can sense a good degree of security; the venue has access to most tourist and conference activities and facilities; shops are also in close proximity. The building looked to be well maintained and clean.

We spent 3 days here at the end of a long tour of Africa. The rooms were quite small, as is often the case in a City hotel, and the bathroom was tiny. However, we did wake up to a view of the mountain. The facilities are good, and there is a lovely ( if very cold!) pool and sitting...

I travelled to Cape Town as a Broadcast journalist covering the big story for the day at Parliament for the Mid Term Budget speech. It was great to stay so close as it gave me the option to walk or drive comfortably. Your location is perfect but your facility and service is even better. It made for a lovely stay....

Spent some time at SunSquare on a recent business trip to Cape Town, it had all the main amenities and was generally clean. The staff,however, were not very attentive especially during breakfast, had to wait a long time and ask a couple of times before coffee was eventually served to my table.
