Even if we did only stay for 1 night, we enjoyed the hospitality of the staff. The hotel and rooms are well designed and comfortable. Also important to mention the highly convenient and spacy showers. The location is well accessible via MyCity, but also with car or by foot. Come back.

Nice small hotel in a wonderful zone of Cape Town. Perfect stay to visit Cape Town and the Cape Region. Very close to Waterfront and not far from the City center but enough far away from the crown zone. Personnel is very friendly-
