Its a great value for money hotel. Reasonably close to the waterfront. Beautiful gardens behind the hotel and next to the Museum. Service is very good and the staff is very pleasant and approachable. Definitely take the room with the view. Its worth the little extra:-)

Stay here if you're taking a mountain view room...Well worth it. Also is a lovely clean well kept little hotel located close to the gardens but appx 20 min drive to the V&A waterfront. The rooms are really small and the bathrooms tiny. The balcony too is a sliver....you can't sit there or anything. The staff is helpful and friendly...expert...

Within easy walking distance to Long Street and Bree Street for restaurants and bars, the location itself is quiet, with the hotel directly across from the Company's Garden. There is no parking onsite, but that's no problem as there is parking available in the adjacent African Pride Hotel as...

We stayed two nights at this modern hotel. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff was helpful and always displayed a friendly attitude.

The hotel is on a quiet side street that is within walking distance to the active shopping and night life on Long Street.

Situated next to the Company Gardens so a bit away from the V&A Waterfront - bit too touristy. Good sized bedrooms, excellent restaurant (dined there twice), great staff - and important for South Africa - safe, secure parking at next door hotel (about £3 per day). Will visit again.
