Stayed 6 nights in October 2012
a good basic tourist hotel ver centrally located
location, good bed, friendly service. wi-fi in room
The rooms were a good size with a comfortable bed. All rooms have free wi-fi. The breakfast was adequate with a good variety available to suit all nationalities. The safe in our room needed replacing and this took awhile but was done after a couple of calls. The location is just accross the road from the main railway station and bus terminal. The Red Tourist bus passes by and it is a short walk to the nearest stop (pity it is not at railwat station opposite).

Clean and Service Staff Excellent
Service Staff
After reading a few negative reviews about the hotel before we arrived we were pleasantly surprise that none of the reviews were right. We found a hotel that was clean and the service staff was excellent on all counts. The Doorman - Thys was especially special and a real asset to the hotel. A wonderful stay.

Great location but quite a small room.
Within walking distance to the city center.
The hotel provided with very basic toiletteris - only body wash was provided. The management should look into this.

Great location and friendly employees
Employees went out of their way to help in any way possible and were always available
i had asked for a high floor with lots of sunlight and a view of signal hill or table mtn. we check in and the room had a cubbyhole of a window, a view of an unattractive commercial building and was dark. i was too tired the first night but the next day i explained the situation and that afternoon we had a sunny room with a view of signal hill. a few days later we had a problem with the lock on our room door. they then transferred us to a major upgrade which was a studio suite with terrace,great view on a higher floor. all in all for the price this was a great deal. they also upgraded us to the breakfast buffet (which was quite good)

Great Location, friendly staff
Great Location, good breakfast and is included in room price, very friendly and helpful staff.
hotel was a little dated. bed sheets were too small for the bed, and came off during the night. bathroom window had a light curtain, on a large window, which allow people from outside to see through at night, so when showering we were unable to keep the lights on in the bathroom. staff were friendly and helpful, and breakfast was more than adequate, and location is great. overall a very nice place.

Good hotel with very spacious room
Large self contained room and a good breakfast buffet
I stayed here for a few days and it was a really good value hotel. The room had a separate bedroom and bathroom and the kitchen/living room was spacious and very well equipped. The hotel was in a very good location and I would recommend this to people in Cape Town on vacation or business.
