“Excellent hotel in a great location” (Tripadvisor)
“We stayed here for 4 nights. Our accommodations consisted of a well equipped bedroom, bath and separate living room/kitchen. All for the price of a hotel room. The included breakfast was delicious and there were many good restaurant options within walking distance (we especially liked Café Paradiso). The staff at the front desk was happy to make reservations and their recommendations were spot on. Overall, this is an extremely service oriented hotel. We loved the neighborhood feel of this hotel and preferred it to the more touristy V & A waterfront hotels. The V & A waterfront and other areas of Cape Town were easily (and inexpensively) accessed via taxi or the hotel shuttle. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Cape Town.”
