Except for the lack cleanliness in the bathroom and the two beds I think overall the service was very good. It is important to get the views of customers with regard to the rooms they prefer. It was very embarrassing for me to be checked into a room that already had an occupant.

The room was very clean and quiet, as a result I got a very peaceful sleep I've enjoyed my buffet dinner the most. The hotel location was easy to find even though I got lost at first to Lower Long St.

Located right in the center of the city, the Cape Sun is a great place to stay. It's clean, modern and has a very helpful staff. Located five minutes from everything, including the V&A waterfront. Large, well-apponted rooms and excellent full breakfast.

Very helpful staff. We had a problem with music coming from another nearby property and we were moved and upgraded immediately. Our room was on the 31st floor so the views were great.Rooms and breakfast were excellent.
