We arrived late at night and Dominic was waiting to greet us. He helped with our bags and showed us around our large, comfy bedroom, first impression - very good.

For those looking to visit Cape Town and who don't put a huge emphasis on spending big on a hotel then I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Parliament Hotel. The hotel is located centrally, within walking distance of Long Street and within a short taxi drive to the waterfront. The staff are extremely helpful and will call you a taxi...

You can find in this review my likes and dislikes about this hotel. It is in the centre of Cape Town, close to many must see museums however I would still advise travellers to stay at the Waterfront area instead for safety reason.

The Parliament is right downtown. Quite convenient. Everything was in order. Clean, spacious rooms and good service. Good wifi and a good breakfast. And, the price was affordable. By the way, the restaurant next door, The Cousins, serves delicious food

For the money I thought this was an excellent hotel. It's in a fairly safe and interesting part of town and the Italian restaurant was very good. The breakfast is included and was good. They'll do omelettes, etc for you and have juice, cheese, toast, etc. Service was fantastic at the hotel and restaurant. PRO TIP: take an uber everywhere....
