I had an ok stay here. I was really insistent on staying here due to the location despite my friend's reluctance. I will say that the location here is outstanding and is walkable from a lot of good points throughout Cape Town's City Center.
-Great and convenient location. It was in Bo Kaap within walking distance of Cape Town's greatest landmarks. It was also really safe in this area and quite secure. Walking around was safe and easy to navigate around.
-Breakfast was good. They provided eggs, brown bread, muffins, yogurt, juice, fruit, and coffee tea that you can eat/make at your leisure. This was very convenient considering my mornings were very early and I was able to eat a solid breakfast before my daily excursions.
-They have hot water and no troubles with the shower at all
-New towels daily
-I felt the service was a bit lacking. I was not warmly greeted by staff and everything felt like a business transaction rather than an inviting stay.
-In a perfect world, quiet hours would be observed. however, on my last night here you could literally hear everything from the kitchen as the other guests were not respecting the quiet hours. This was in the middle of the night and caused a sleepless night for me. The walls here are thin here, so hopefully your neighbors can respect quiet hours when you're here.
-A little TOO secure. It took 3 keys to get into your room, and the keys are very old-fashioned so the first couple of times it took 10 minutes to get into the building, let alone your room. The safe was ANOTHER key.
--Wi-fi was lacking or non-existent. The service was poor.
Overall, a pretty average stay. I would stay here again if I was alone but I'm not sure if I would recommend it to friends.
