Great hotel near the waterfront. Easy to cross the road to get to the waterfront and the city sightseeing bus. Staff are friendly and are always checking up on you. Will definitely use this hotel again when I'm in cape town. Ordered room service once. Was quick and efficient and food was good.

Out of the ten Proteas, we stayed at all over S.A., this place was by far the worst. We wanted to like it with its great location and friendly staff, but the stay was miserable because of the micro, small rooms, poor wifi, noise, and awful breakfast. The room was half the size of a standard hotel room, more like a closet than a bedroom. Breakfast was just crap in food quality layout and selection. This hotel had much lower standards than other same branded hotels from our experience. They seem to get a lot of University business and just don't seem to try as hard. I had absolutely zero benefits being Bonvoy Titanium. Very disappointed.

Very enjoyable stay. Good price for 10 days, comfortable room and excellent location. Staff friendly and very efficient. Will certainly stay again. We were upgraded on arrival. The hotel is a short walk to Waterfront, Myciti bus and big red tourist bus. You can even walk to seapoint. Handy for football stadium and spectacular African art gallery

This hotel is located close to the V &A Waterfront and all tourist attractions. I would suggest it if u dont intend spending alot of time in your hotel room or if you in Cape Town for a day or 2. The pictures make the rooms look big but they are actually quite small. Even the passageways between rooms is quite tight. Its like it was built for small people. The service by staff was exceptional. Wifi is excellent and ample free parking. Free Sanitizers were provided i the room which we appreciated
