Great place to stay in Cape Town
It’s all location, location, location and the hotel is only a 20 minute walk to the waterfront and they had shuttle service that ran every 30 minutes to the place to go in Cape Town, the waterfront. The hotel itself was very nice. It had recently been refurbished as it looked like a brand new hotel. Rooms were nice and modern, not overly big but a good size. Big buffet breakfast that had everything. I would really recommend this hotel

Would highly recommend
Great room. Spacious and clean. Awesome views of the city and Table Mountain. Walking distance to food or take the free and really convenient shuttle to the water front for all the activity there. The staff was really friendly. The morning breakfast had plenty of seating and a varied breakfast buffet. I would stay again and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel.

Fantastic super clean hotel with good service
Excellent throughout. Very clean, modern, lovely room with very nice bed and bedding. Very courteous staff. Great value. Breakfast was included and was very good. Ate one night in restaurant and it was very good and fairly priced. 15 minute walk to the very cool waterfront area, hotel right across street from convention center.
