Very lovely
Awesome place, I totally recommend!!

Good location, helpful staff, good value for price
Good location but better get a room facing inside to avoid the noise from two bars to left and right of the hotel. Sharon at reception was really nice and helpful. No elevator, no facilities on site, which are ok to me as I didint stay in room much. WiFi was unreliable, needed patience. Overall a good value for the price.

Great place to stay
A very nice place to stay in Cape Town. Central location. Helpful staff. We stayed 3 nights, taking tours from the hotel on 2 of the days.

Very nice small hotel that was clean and had excellent service. Fun to stay away from the large chains and try a smaller hotel. A number of very nice restaurants close by. Only downside was number of beggers in the area, which I'm told, is common throughout Cape Town.

Great choice of hotel in an amazing location
It's your basic, clean hotel in an amazing location! Staff was always present, attentive and friendly. For the price you are paying, it's a good deal. The only issue was that nights can get very noisy depending on which room you are in - if you are in a room facing one of the bars, it can be problematic if you are a light sleeper. All that being said, I will definitely be back here next time I am in CPT.
