Clean and everything there. Location is good. We had breakfast deal. Breakfast is good but limited choice. Staff are friendly and keen to help. Gym and swimming pool are small but pleasant. Wifi is slow. Not able to watch videos. There is a nice cafe serves very good light bites( pizza etc..) just across the street. We popped in the...

The other had a table mountain view. Staff were very helpful and the breakfasts were great. order your eggs or pancakes as you sit down. The outside...

The staff were excellent and really helpful. We were welcomed on arrival with smiles and water and hot towel. Nothing was too much trouble. The concierge was very informative. Very close to Table Mountain and Robben Island. Would definitely recommend this hotel

Excellent hotel services, very helpful staff, ready to recommend "what to do" - day trips, very clean. In the central for those who are in Cape Town for business purposes, not close to the Waterfront area, where recreation takes place.

We were outside the Hilton and my husband asked a member of the Hilton staff if we could find an Internet connection somewhere to call Uber. Brendan, the staff member, invited us into the hotel lobby so that we could log on to access the Uber app. He offered to help me put in our location and destination. When he...

I loved this hotel except that it serves no pork and doesn't embrace alcohol, although alcohol is served. I was not aware of this fact when i booked and would not have done so, if I had known because it also brings a more religious clientele.

I stayed here with my family. My sister and I had a great room (816) with fantastic views of Table Mountain and the painted houses in this predominantly muslim area of the city. My parents and other two siblings had a large suite with two rooms and a large sitting/ dining area (807) which had views of the V&A waterfront....

So, while the people were great (especially at breakfast every morning) the grounds and room itself are just average. Nothing special, and I have definitely visited better Hiltons throughout the world. Room was not horrible, but not great and the construction added insult to injury. It has been going on for quite some time (it was mentioned on the website...
