This is just your typical hotel. We stayed 3 nights and they were all very enjoyable and comfortable. The concierge Freddie is AWESOME!!! Anything you need/want to know about the city he will go out of his way to help you. The daily breakfast was nice, nothing extravagant. Location was perfect for us, we lived Long Street and it was...

Great experience. The only thing that worries me is that i paid cheaper rates as i used an agent to book and through Tsogo Sun the rates were almost double what i paid. The other thing is that as i booked with a guy friend i forgot to to request that the double bed be divided as two single beds....

We booked this hotel for one night. Room was clean, good bed. Breakfast is buffet. Unfortunately no fresh juices at breakfast! A disappointment for a country where fruits grow all over the place... Service is good and friendly staff.

Good location, comfortable and clean rooms. Bathrooms are clean as well, though I don't understand why they don't extend the shower doors a little bit so that the water is better contained within the tub and enclosure. Breakfast buffet was a highlight as it included very fresh and tasty croissants, custom egg preparation, and much more. Front desk was helpful...

This hotel was very clean and the staff very helpful and friendly. Close to everywhere and the view of Table Mountain was awesome. We had lovely meals and the one I would recommend is Nelsons Eye on Hof Street near the hotel. Safe to walk at daytime but at night they recommend you have a staff member with you.

Stayed here for four nights as part of a group booking. Away from the waterfront I'd never thought of staying here - but would do again. Located near the gardens, North of the parliament, it's handy for tourist things. Good parking and a great convenience store across the road. Excellent views of the mountain. It's not of the same class...

Nice hotel fairly near downtown Cape Town.Stayed two night with a group after a tour. Fairly easy check in but luggage took quite a while to arrive. Dinner was a buffet and we were disappointed with the quality of the meal. Drinks were reasonably priced for an hotel. Breakfast as also a buffet and just about acceptable . Great view...
