I spent a week at the V&A Waterfront hotel, and I must say it's not as good as i thought it would be. The room is spacious enough for two, and the bathroom too. The view is great, but if you're staying on the 3rd floor be sure to be careful when walking around in your room as you could...

Right in the waterfront area and very safe. All the restaurants, shopping and nightlife is right outside your hotel but it is very quiet at night. Staff at the reception is...

This is a well located modern hotel on the V&A Waterfront. It offered a good breakfast buffet but we did not dine here. Rooms are brightly decorated with lovely big beds. Ours did not overlook the water, but those that do must be nice. Breakfast can be taken on the terrace by the harbour.

Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights. We booked a superior double room, when we arrived we were told we had a "lovely" loft room. Not sure I agree with the description. The loft room has small windows in the ceiling, it does have a great view, but you have to stick your head out of the window to see...

It was even better than we thought. It begins with an absolutely beautiful lobby and then it extends throughout the hotel from its restaurants to the hotel...
