      Good apartment in a central location”

      Apartment 1808 had great views over the city and waterfront. The building has good security (card access to lifts and facilities, security desk, room safe etc) and 24hr reception and is within walking distance to the foreshore, waterfront, castle, market square and shopping mall. The apartment was well equipped with crockery, cooking equipment, free wifi and ample TV channels. Everything was as described although the decor is beginning to look a bit tired. We were disappointed in the maintenance staff. On two occasions we reported to reception a missing light bulb and the bath plug that did not hold water. On the second occasion a member of staff came and took photos of the items, apologising for the fact that the issues had not been resolved and promising to get things done. We checked out three days later and still no light bulb and the bath plug still didn't hold water. The receptionist apologised once again......very poor maintenance service. Despite this we would stay here again

The staffs were very friendly. They suggested places to visit. We loved it. I will stay there again on my visit to Cape Town and would recommend for all travelers.

      Service at Icon Luxury was great! we had a 4wd with roof tent and the vehicle was too tall to enter the garage but their staff was nice to lookout for streetside parking lots in front of their property so that the security can look after it for us. the receptionist was very helpful as well! everything was working in the room and was clean.

      I cannot complain about Icon. I regularly stay in different hotels to just see what suits my liking and this has completely amazed me. The service at the front desk was so heart warming and exceptional. The Apartment that I was staying in was the most amazing little apartment perfect for a couple. The whole premisis was just so secure and convenient at the same time whilst still remaining clean and neat. This was a breeze and I will definitely be going back.

      Good location and nice room with high floor view. I was surprised that there is no hair dryer, but the oven is provided! The key card did not work anymore. We faced the problem on car park access every times, what we can do is directly ask the security to validate the card. The hotel staff should check the accessibility before hand to guest.

      The Lack of Will of the staff at the Icon to silence noisy narcotic smoking neighbors was disappointing but not as disappointing as the "Cliche" PR response from the GM..... as for the cleanliness, our apartment was maintained but having to wait for towels from the laundry which arrives in the late afternoon and then only to receive 3 old over used towels while we were a family of four.............NOT GOOD ENOUGH we stopped complaining after the second day.....

      I stayed at the Icon for 3 nights. Parking was a mission. The lifts weren’t working half the time. The intercom system in my apartment didn’t work. The faucet in the kitchen was leaking and my aircon was also not working. Also, I got woken up in the middle of the night by some people speaking loudly in the always as it actors throughout the whole building. The location was perfect and it was very convenient having the Vida Café and Food Lover’s Market downstairs. Check out was also very quick & easy.

      Checkin delayed due to housekeeping issues”

      Pros Great views, beautiful decor, spacious apartment, pool, gym and reliable facilities and comfortable silence. The hairdryer was surprisingly great quality that stood out for me as most hotel hairdryers are small low heat generic and die on you within 5 minutes. They also proactively had the iron and ironing board in the wardrobe so that I didn’t have to call the hotel staff for such basic necessities.🙈 The staff were great friendly and transparent. 😁👍🏽 Cons: • delay check in process • due to housekeeping issues they were waiting on clean linen. • needless to say they eventually checked me in an almost an hour later. • upon arrival the pillows in the room were dirty. • Housekeeping arrived an hour plus afterwards and applied the bedding and pillowcases. • I slept without pillows as clean pillow cases do not equate to clean pillows. • The blue armrest single seater couches were dirty.
