There are so many reasons this was the perfect place for us to stay while in Cape Town. We were in Cape Town for five nights in the middle of a four week trip to Africa and Europe. We reserved a one bedroom apartment, with washer/dryer, full kitchen, dining area, living room and bedroom. We made use of all these...

The location is ideal! The room and was fantastic! Modern and very comfortable. He bed was great! The only thing I found disappointing was the tv! The quality was very poor! Wifi was also very slow! The service was fantastic except the restaurant staff! Definitely one of my favorite hotels in Cape Town! I would stay here again!

The staff is attentive, the rooms are like a home away from home...and the perfect, central location to explore Cape Town. One of the best hotel stays I've had. Extremely clean, a full, working kitchen, and great views made it a perfect, comfortable place to rest my head. I loved it, and highly recommend it!

To start with, the rooms are the size of large Manhattan Apartments with full Kitchen, bath, laundry, Living Room and separate bedroom. The room had a balcony overlooking a courtyard and Government Greek Revival building with clock. The service from the moment you enter the hotel, check-in and take you to your room is 5 star.

For me this hotel right by the start of the N1 motorway to my office was very convenient for the car. Parking provided beneath the hotel and very easy to access.

I came to this hotel with high expectations and to be honest I was disappointed. The apartment and the rooms and lovely but unnecessarily large with a kitchen. If you come to Cape Town you'll be eating out most of the time. The breakfast is below average and really needs to be looked at by the hotel. The bacon looks...

I was very impressed with the huge size of the rooms/ apartment. We could have entertained a small crowd for a party. A good location for the city and waterfront even if it looks a little small when you arrive. Breakfast, garage and pool available which are great for Cape Town.
