The location of this hotel on the waterfront was so convenient for visiting Robben Island, shops, restaurants and easy access for driving in and out of the city along the waterfront to the Cape, Table Mountain, the wine area. We had a corner suite which was a large room with a seating area with views of Table Mountain. The bed...

As first-time visitors to Cape Town, we appreciated the location of this hotel - right in the center of the busy Waterfront district and close to all the local restaurants. We had very nice and spacious interconnecting rooms on the 2nd floor with all the usual amenities: well-equipped bathrooms. flat screen TV, etc. Impressed by the free car parking also....

We booked last night at the Victoria and Alfred Hotel . Really the room we had 311 was pathetic for the money. So small and it felt like a prison cell. Nothing to look at, windows so small. All the bedding in the room was Feathers and i am allergic to it but they don't tell you that. Asked for...

I stayed with my family here in June. We were given a ‘normal’ room overlooking the big Ferris wheel at the back of the building. The room was easily large enough for our king bed and an extra bed for our 4yr old. There was a separate toilet to the shower and bath room which worked well for us. Occasionally...

We booked our New Years Eve stay a bit late and ended up having to pay the eye-watering prices at the V&A Hotel. I wouldn't have minded, except that it seriously wasn't worth the money. Half of the rooms overlook the touristy parts of the waterfront, so you're likely to be woken by noise form musical performers or otherwise. All...

This hotel had been recommended to us by a number of friends and it did not disappoint. The loft room we selected was clean and comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located on the waterfront, and there are many restaurants close-by as well as the hotel restaurant. Breakfast was included in our rate and it was excellent - a buffet as...

Room was very comfortable, breakfast (included) was excellent. Staff very helpful and location perfect for wandering the waterfront, taking the hop on hop off bus tours. Restaurant was fine for dinner, though there are many other choices on the waterfront

Nice hotel but getting old Room was not so clean as you can expect for this kind of hotel Asked for a non smoking and got a smoking one; smelly Insulation is poor; so you feel cold air constantly Noise proofing is poor too.

Stayed here 4 nights and absolutely loved it. Amazing location, a very lively area. There are many things to do around and a lot of restaurants too. The view of the waterfront from my room was great. You'll enjoy amazing views during breakfast too. The breakfast service was a slow on couple of occasions because they were understaffed, but the...
