Checked in and got upgraded from a studio we had originally booked, to a two bed apartment, which was a nice surprise. Good location close to Long Street and Greenmarket Square. Staff were helpful and the hotel felt safe and secure. Would return if I'm ever in Cape Town again. Helpful in storing our luggage for us as our flights...

They had strewn petals on the bed,...

Average accommodation. Good location beside a stop for the city sightseeing tour bus. Near Long Street and Bree Street. 60 zar in taxi to waterfront. Apartments spacious so would recommend for people travelling with children.

The staff were working hard, the room was spacious, and the location was the best. In particular, they are willing to work for us: bringing our baggage before asking them, The hotel was almost excellent except that the internet was slow.

The location very centralised and access to all major routes very easy to navigate. The one down side was that when the wind blew a gale, it was quite noisy in the bedroom making it...
