Grand Daddy Hotel, Cape Town
Perfect in All Areas
As a solo American traveling to Capetown, this hotel was perfect. South Africa, including Capetown is experiencing serious challenges in terms of tourist comfort from the lurking criminal element that keeps travelers on their toes, erring on the side of caution. The Grand Daddy Hotel is perfect in that it mitigates the fear of the unfamiliar through proper tips from its front desk personnel. Each and everyone of the staff members is very patient as they offer necessary advice in terms of do's and don'ts when navigating the area. The hotel itself is clean, quaint, and everything works and is efficiently placed. Honestly, I cannot find a weakness with this hotel. It made my six days well worth my trip and allowed for a pleasurable experience in one of the most fascinating locations in the world.

Loved the Airstreams on the roof!
We stayed in the trailers on the roof. It was super fun and comfy. Good breakfast.

Grand Daddy Hotel, Cape Town
Great location and friendly staff
Very pleasant hotel to serve as a base for tourists in Cape Town. Room was rather small and lacked a chair (there's was a stool to use at the desk). On the other hand, there's a very large and quiet lounge on the 1st floor that was great for reading/office work. Staff was very helpful and friendly.
