Lovely location for the downtown experience
Location, lobby decoration, friendly helpful staff.
This hotel, located in the downtown core, is a lovely choice for access to the joys of urban Cape Town. It has a lovely lobby which is an homage to Nelson Mandela, with quotations, an interesting sculpture and an impressive painting. The rooms are spacious, tastefully decorated and fully functional. The staff were remarkably responsive. We used a washing machine in the room, and as we washed a large amount of clothes, the staff heroically brought in a dryer and hooked it up for us as well. My daughters enjoyed the spa, and were very impressed with their treatment there. The roof top pool is lovely, and the general feel of the place was welcoming and friendly. I would stay there again.

Fabulous comfortable stay
Location, relaxing very comfortable apartment. Your own laundry facilities
I only wish it had been longer. A very convenient location. Initially I found it hard to find as I was looking for a street front door. It is located inside a small mall area. Well located to restaurants or as I did purchased salads from the nearby Fresh Food Market and took them back to my room.
