    Good location, rooms was slightly disappointing. ”

    Location was right smack in the middle of long street with easy access to lots of good food & drinks. No free parking, parking are payable from 8 - 5pm daily. Parking will be collected by a person in orange coloured vest, clearly marked as parking marshal. No charge for parking after 5pm, do not be duped by the homeless people around who claims that you need to pay for parking overnight. Clarify with reception if in doubt (who are super nice people by the way). Room was slightly small. Not much issue about it since the price was really affordable. My only grumble (albeit a slightly big one) was that the double bed that was supposed to fit two persons is really small. It was impossible to get a decent sleep as two of us (my husband and I) was unable to fit nicely on the bed, and after staying for two nights with bad sleep, we decided to forfeit our remaining two nights (my booking was for 4 nights) and went to another hotel for a better sleep. Yes, it was that bad.

    Quirky and interesting hotel, with each room having a different theme. Staff were very friendly and helpful, recommending nearby restaurants and booking taxis for us. We stayed three nights in "Sailor Jerry" which was quite amusing but could do with upgrading, especially the electrics; the semi -transparent bathroom door was a bit awkward! We returned for one night at the end of our holiday and were in "Photo Booth", which was interesting and very different. The hotel was in a good location for cafes and restaurants. Breakfast was basic with not much choice. Good value for money.

    Above average”

    Overall it was a pretty good stay, enjoyed my time and the staff was friendly and helpful from check in to check out. I did have a few issues, the surrounding area made me feel uncomfortable, the wooden floor made a noise with every step taken and the walls are thin so I could hear next door and above me, the electronic safe and coffee machine didn't work in the room didn't work.... But if your looking for a cheap place to stay on short notice, this is it

    Great concept! Nice guy at the front desk. ”

    The hotel is right in the main lane of cape town where all the bars are located. Not a place for someone who likes quite and relax time. It is botique hotel and is designed really well. The rooms are bit small but the beds are comfy. Everything was spotless clean and the staff is amazing. Check their website for different room types as you might either love the room or complety hate it. “Not for claustrophobics.”

    They went above and beyond to help get my booking confirmation email that Agoda ommited.”

    First time using Agoda for bookings was horrendous I didn’t get a confirmation email and they don’t have a contact number only a contact form. Upon arrival at Daddy long legs art Hotel I couldn’t check in and my proof of payment wasn’t enough! They initially suggested I pay for another booking and then consult Agoda whom I couldn’t reach about a refund. I refused! They contacted Agoda and sorted everything out. Agoda eventually sent me the confirmation email with booking ID and I checked in! Just some advice to the Agoda team your auto email response with the manage my booking button doesn’t work If you don’t have a profile with Agoda and thus you cannot obtain your booking ID! Fix it! Presently the only people who have access to their bookings (& booking IDs & confirmation) are Agoda profile holders. Thus only Agoda profile holders have a second booking confirmation which is logged on their profile and they can use it checkin if they don’t receive a confirmation email from Agod.

    Fantastic place to stay”

    We only had one night here- and that was the ONLY downside-we wish we could have stayed longer. We absolutely loved it. Room was quiet and clean. The staff are fantastic and went out of their way on our behalf. We received welcome drinks of our choice (glasses of wine), free coffee/tea throughout the day in the lounge, free continental breakfast, and allowed a late check out. Even after we had checked out, they stored our luggage and allowed us to sit in their lounge using their facilities, watching t.v. and having coffee. They arranged our taxi to the airport, and when they discovered we had left a small bag behind, they contacted the cab driver directly, so that we could return to pick it up. By the way, we are an older couple, and didn't feel out of place at all in this hotel. We will definitely be returning.

    For the price it was exceptional, it was located near the sightseeing tour bus which takes only 1 min to get there and there were a lot of restaurants and cafe’s nearby. Staff were so friendly and they would come up to you and engage with a conversation. Definitely would recommend this hotel ❤️

    The down sides of this hotel are that there is no TV in room, the drainage is kind of blocked so the shower tends to be flooded when you shower, and there is no elevator. But the location, design of the rooms, and the friendly and helpful staff made up for it.

Well located to the CBD, Centre of Town, bars and restaurants.. Easy access to the City Sight Seeing Town Office on Long Street and within walking distance of the down time attractions.
