I never felt so desperate during my extensive travels even beyond the borders of this country. They insisted that I pay some portion of the money despite producing a purchase order and said it would be reversed within two to three days. Now it's the fifth day and counting... I wonder whether it will happen....

Hotel clean and tidy and very central to everything staff very friendly and helpful especially francois and alen. Fantastic for having a place to sleep and getting out and about easily enough and felt very safe with our surroundings.

We were happy wit our choice of the hotel as it is located right in the middle of the town, a lot of point of interest in walking distance. The room was very spacious but unfortunately in opposit of the lift, which was disturbing during the night.

Great location, the staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. They took care of us. The Wi-Fi is terrible!, and too limited. The breakfast was boring, but I think that can be fixed. Will definitely visit again!

The staff were very courteous , and the breakfast was great! Great value for money!The rooms are very clean and well cared for. The location in the center of Capetown was convenient as it allowed us to travel freely between town and Rodenbosch as well as town and the Waterfront.

Get a bit of both for a price of one, relaxed and quiet urban vibe at the heart of Cape town. When you are looking for a place to relax, your answer is Cape Diamond. When you are looking for great aerial view of Cape book at the 8th floor. Don't forget spending time at their ground floor restaurant/bar with...
