    This was a family visit. The location and surroundings are nice. The staff was also very nice. The night we arrived we had some issues getting the electricity on. But for the trouble, we got a nice free breakfast the next day (courtesy of Charles, a great guy!). My guess is that things usually run well, but if things don't work well, they do their best to make up for it. Another minor comment is that when we enter the apartment, it seemed that it was closed (not aired) for some time. Overall a very nice stay. (It would be great to add Internet to the apartments, not only for the reception area, which is a few blocks away)

    Great neighborhood, friendly staff
    Great neighborhood, large, clean room, friendly staff. My flight wasn't until midnight but I was able to spend the evening in the lobby area of the hotel; they even provided a place for me to shower before my long flight home.

    Cute and close to good food and drinks
    This was a great little place for a solo traveler. Got upgraded to an apartment, which would have been comfortable for two people. Wifi was the only problem. Couldn't find a network to even buy wifi from the room. If you stand outside of the office at night, you sometimes get it. It was a very small detail, in an otherwise great stay!

    Lovely & Reasonable in De Waterkant Village
    Our family had three two-bedroom townhouses at De Waterkant Village. They were all very clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The neighborhood is quiet, but close to cafes, restaurants and shopping. Each of the living spaces was different. One of them had a lovely rooftop seating area. We would definitely stay here again.

    Convenient apartment, a little tired
    One bed apartment was spacious and nicely laid out. Very close to the centre of the ‘vilage’. Fittings were a little tired - including a CRT television! - and the property had been sold. Good value for the price
