Stocked with a kitchen and a very large den/living room the room was very luxurious. The staff was friendly and helpful; however, the pool was on the rooftop and only 1m deep. The location...

I was shocked at the quality of the hotel room. It is not a room but rather a small apartment. Amazing room!!!! Will never stay anywhere else when visiting cape town. Also so close to waterfront and many tourist attractions in CBD. You cant go wrong if staying at this hotel.

This hotel is a gem! The rooms are HUGE with a FULL kitchen including an apt size washer and dryer. Best rooms are high and not overlooking the parking lot to avoid traffic noise.
