Very Bad
they arranged parking for our cars.
We had a terrible experience. The manager bardge into our room and the staff and manager knocked on the door of the room next to ours for about an hour between 5 and 6 in the morning, waking us all. my friends checked out just after 7 just to get out of the hotel. I phoned to complain about it and two days later the 'manager' have still not phoned me back about my complaint

Not a nice hotel, and not recommended
nothing
I did not like this hotel, it is not well located, and does not attact the right kind of people. I will not stay there again, as the rooms are small, the staff is not professional, and nothing seems to work. They could not even find a plug where the kettle they provided could be plugged in, meaning that the kettle has probably never worked. Can you believe it. The food is not good, and won't eat there again. The lifts are so noisy that certain rooms are not even being booked out as you cannot sleep at night. The staff are very opologetic, but get angry when you complain as they cannot help these things, and blame the quality of the hotel and the age of it, as it seems the owners are not willing to spend money on the very desperate upgarde required to fix up this place.

Helpful reception staff
Central location
Had to request a heater for the room and a room on a higher floor-all accommodated in a friendly efficient fashion.

Small room, central location and friendly service
Central location
The hotel is really centrally located with the only draw-backs being the small rooms and the fact that there is no dedicated parking bays.

Satisfied
Convenient location.
As we travelled on business, the location was convenient to visit the companies in town. There are shops and restaurants in walking distance, too. The room was comfortable. Considering the room rate, good value.

great hotel, affordable rates
location and safety
overall good, near market, clubs, shopping center. Since located in the center of Cape town you can reach some interesting places in distance walk. No safety box available, also limited bathroom amenities. Bit smelly in the lift, however very good cleanliness in room and lobby.Its better places rather than stay in the longstreet since that area is too crowded and noisy specially during weekend. overall good, near market, clubs, shopping center.

Good location but noisy
Central location, friendly staff.
I had a large room which was great since there are no views in the central district, and a smaller space would have seemed claustraphobic. It was very convenient for walking around main tourist sites and the staff were friendly and helpful. However, the noise from outside and the lift shaft were problematic, and I would probably not stay here again. The parking was not convenient and they should ask you to book in busy times. It was also expensive and the price should be indicated on the booking site if you need parking. Best suited to low budget travellers without a car who want to be close to nightlife.

Good location but very disorganised staff
Close to Greenmarket
We booked a standard QS room. After having to wait nearly 1 hour after check-in time as they couldn't find our booking, then the room was still being cleaned we were given a room with twin beds and no air con. We told them we wanted a room with one bed and they quickly obliged. The staff were friendly and helpful but very disorganised.

Great location
Location, Staff
i was in cape town on business for a few days and this hotel proved to be in an ideal location. the staff were very friendly and helpful but unfortunately that didnt really mask the fact that the hotel itself was not great with very small rooms (that had no airconditioning) and rather basic bathrooms. also, it isnt suitable for a busniess trip as internet access is overpriced and the coverage is not very good. i would defo rate this hotel as a 3 star and no more.
