We spent the first six nights of our trip to South Africa here, arriving on new years day. The entrance and public areas of the hotel are distinctly unimpressive with a tired and poky feel. Our room was somewhat better but the bathroom was tired. On the other hand the views to the Waterfront and Table mountain were great from...

Great Hotel, Perfect location Stayed here for 2 nights and it was great. Its central location is perfect as its only 5 minutes from the center of the city and walking distance from the waterfront. Rooms were well kept and hotel staff are the friendliest I’ve ever come across. Will definitely be back always

Older Style Hotel. Staff very friendly & helpful. The place is kept spotless. A good 20 minute walk to waterfront. Nice restaurants within a short walking distance. Would definitely recommend for a reasonable price hotel not too far from tourist areas.

Air conditioner in lounge didn't work. They had no cot for our baby even though I had this confirmed via email, in saying that staff did go out and buy another one which was fantastic. Staff were helpful and polite. 10-15min walk to Waterfront.

It may be that this was the end of a longish trip but our impression was that this Protea was not as good as their usual standard (incidentally we accidentally, care of satnav, went to the one just down the road and we would make the same comment about attitude about that one too) The security staff in the car...

Booked this through Marriott, which now owns or has a marketing agreement with the Protea chain. Expected, based on Marriott's webpage, that I'd be able to enjoy "full elite benefits." Wrong. No free breakfast, no room upgrade, no enhanced Internet. In fact, barely any Internet connectivity at all. The staff seemed amused that I'd ask, but in fairness, they seem...

My first time in Cape Town and if I wasn't with my friend I might not have found this hotel that easily. The room is not too bad as the beds were comfortable and I had a lovely view of the famous mountain! The bathroom was acceptable except in the morning there was no hot water it was luke warm....
