How many times does that happen? Lovely gem in quiet neighbourhood. Understated elegance, great service, very comfortable modern rooms, immaculately clean. View of table mountain. Wonderful breakfast, walking distance to small mall and museums.

The service in the dinning room was pathetich to say the lease, never ever experience such incompetent service. Even the rooms was not equipped and filled up on a daily basis. Defiantly nothing to be proud of and a shame to the Tsogo Sun group.

This hotel is a little way from the centre but there are some key roads and attractions within walking distance. It is a modern hotel at the comfortable end as opposed to luxury - but perfectly adequate for purpose. The entrance is a short walk from the main road (see photos) as the coach cannot drive there, but taxis do...

We spent last week on holiday in Cape Town and stayed at the SunSquare Cape Town for the second time. We were as satisfied as during our first visit. The hotel is clean and quiet. It is well-situated, with restaurants, a cinema, a shopping centre and tourist attractions (the Company's Garden, Natural History Museum, Parliamentary precinct) in easy walking distance....

Sun Square is a lovely hotel with loads of parking. The front office staff was very helpful. The rooms are spacious and cleaned well each day. The hotel is very accommodating with a late check out. The hotel is based at the foot of the mountain.
