I am not English but I speak the language fairly well. In the reception I had difficulties in understanding on what floor my room was. "First" and "fifth" sounded as identical floors so first I took the elevator to the wrong floor. Anyway, this is not important. During the night the air-condition cracked so the bed beside me became soaked...

Not much to be said other than that I was very disappointed by the room i.e the room has no balcony, the sound docking station can only dock iPod, the shower was leaking heavily, the mini bar was hot, the extractor fan was not working, there was no room service etc. It is very unlikely that we will stay in...

Stayed here for 8 nights as a base for seeing Cape Town and surrounding areas. Excellent location close to some really excellent restaurants which were very reasonably priced. Staff were helpful and breakfast was also good. We had a superior room overlooking the Lion's Head which was just a fantastic.view. The mycitibus stops just outside with frequent buses into the...

the rooms are large clean and comfortable. in the area you can find all your needs for shopping and it is less than 5 minutes walk fro the beautiful promenade along the beach. free parking in protected area is very useful.

I had a sea facing room on the Top (5th) floor and would highly recommend. Conveniently located, comfortable bed with modern facilities. My only disappointment was no bath only shower but then maybe I am a bit old fashioned.

Great value and very good, convenient location. Rooms comfortable, but not as clean as I would prefer. Service was great, from the reception to the breakfast room. Breakfast included and good spread. Would recommend for a budget stay.

It was a nice stay but it can definitely be much better. I felt the entrance to the hotel was a bit complicated considering it is at the entrance of a spar. The reception could have been quicker. The wifi was not picking up at certain areas and you had to keep logging in where as it could have remained...

We was very gappy to have a good location to stay, a safe park garage, very friendly people and bus station just there. The Regent street where the hitel is offers many excellent placses for dinner and for shopping. The hotel is embedded in a business building with a Spar and other shops which is comfortable but the holiday atmosphere...
