Everything about this restaurants' food is authentic. With a seven piece blues band playing in the back, you are in for a treat. The place isn't much to look at but with the vibe it brings and the collection of oddities its wonderful.

Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful but they could not solve the basic problems like, poor Wi-Fi, poor sound insulation against neighbouring rooms. Also the taxi the hotel sent for airport pick-up overcharged me for about 30%. Night staff-cum-security guard speaks almost no English hence couldn't transfer phone calls to my room. Breakfast was in minute portion.

This is not a hotel. I arrived to find that the "hotel" lobby turned into a dirty dark night club atmosphere. A live band playing music that can be heard from my taxi two blocks away as I approached. On booking in I was rudely treated. Once in the room the music was so loud. This music was from the...

the Hotel is situated in not such a great area; even though we were sleeping on the 3rd floor it was very noisy the whole night. They do not have any safe parking for vehicles. Breakfast was also a very bad experience.

The rooms are small, but all is very clean and have all necessary facilities. The area is quite noisy, but it's only a 15 minute walk from Waterfront. Service was perfect, I can definitely recommend this hotel!

Check in was a breeze. The service was fairly good. The hotel has a restaurant, bar and cigar lounge and is located close to Long Street. Lovely breakfast but limited options. Ethiopian cuisine. Clean and tidy. Room service available 24/7.

We then ordered food and the wrong food order was given to us. I am in the hospitality business and this service is disgusting! I will never take my...

During my time at kings in cape, I was subject to poor service standards, no one was very helpful. The food is average, i opted to eat elsewhere and the room need to be upgraded. I wish them all the luck.
