We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and was very happy with the establishment. The rooms are clean and very spacious. It is equipped with a kitchen and most important of all - laundry. We very much enjoyed our stay here. The restaurant is nothing to talk about but they are close to a very good pizza place that...

I'm not sure I've ever stayed in a hotel with nicer,friendlier staff, and I've stayed in 100's of them. That said the hotel interior itself is rather drab and tired. It's situated in the business area of town, and unless your doing business in the town centre, I would stay somewhere else. It's too dangerous to walk at night in...

Stayed here on a business trip for 4 days. Very central, opposite the Cape Town conference Centre. Check in was convenient and quick. I was booked into an apartment on the 5th floor. My first impression was wow!!! The apartment was huge with a full lounge and kitchen. The bedroom was also quite large and very luxurious. Why stay in...

We spent four night at this property in December 2016. The size rooms in this hotel are big, but that's where the good part ended for us. The Aircon was broken. Once fixed, the ceiling in restroom started leaking. The website promised sofa bed, but we got a couch. Upon request, the hotel put in an extra bed though. Not...

We stayed for a second time in 3 years in a two bedroom apartment. Excellent size and facilities including free wifi and breakfast. I stupidly left some expensive earrings behind but one phone call and they had located them and put them aside for us to collect a week later. Only downside is the noise. We were on third floor...

I liked the fact that the rooms here are more like apartments than standard hotel rooms. Large living room and bedroom, nice sized bathroom with a great shower and tub with plenty of counter space. The kitchen is a bit small but didn't care since I wasn't planning on cooking since I'm on vacation. The bed was comfortable but the...
