            Fantastic spacious rooms, great location, comfortable beds, Nespresso machine. Free spacious parking. There is a free shuttle to V&A but not at times that suited us. Walking to V&A is less than half an hour. There were only Nespresso coffees though so 1 tiny coffee each. I didn't bring my own coffee pods as I saw about 2 pods on the photo. The pool is located on the 15th floor on the terrace of the restaurant, and it is about 2x2m. I will definitely recommend this hotel to friends and return myself.

            Great location and friendly, helpful staff. It was really helpful to have kitchen and laundry facilities. Overall a very pleasant stay - I would stay again if I was in Cape Town. A couple of minor negatives - Breakfast was very slow and started late so was never able to take my included breakfast due to my early starts. The Shuttle was hard to find when trying to catch from the waterfront so best to have a back up option. Finally, I wonder why the ceilings were never painted in the rooms - it really doesn’t fit with the style of the rest of the room and looks very odd. However, these are all very minor issues and more than made up by the positives.

            Great Choice For Stay In Cape Town”

            Found the Capital Mirage on Agoda with great ratings for a reason. Lovely newish hotel/appartments. We booked a large modern fully equipped room with washer/dryer and full sized fridge and mini kitchen. Bed was comfortable & nice large windows. Large flatscreen TV with many channels. Excellent quality breakfast with amazing view of city. Excellent & very helpful staff (please ask at front desk about walking around in this area before you venture out, staff more than willing to advise on this). Great free shuttle service to V&A area which is safe for walking at night. Located half way between center of Cape Town & V&A. Taxis are quite cheap so easy to get anywhere.

            Cool place to stay”

            Overall, the hotel has a young and cool decoration. Loved the kitchen in the room, very helpful. Hotel is quiet at night. Wouldn't mind staying there on my next visit. If you plan to share a bedroom with a friend or co-worker, this might not ideal because requesting twin beds it´s the same than sleeping in the same bed because there´s no space between beds, you can feel the other person moving although the suit is spacious. Cleaning needs to improve a bit, making sure that bathroom has enough toiletries for 2 people...having to dial 9 for these things was not that nice although it was solved immediately.

            Perfect hotel apartment in Cape Town”

            Undiscovered gem well located in CapeTown. Can walk to the V&A Waterfront., Central downtown area and real grocery store (Pic&Pay) just a few blocks away on Strand.. Spotlessly clean. The single room units are quite commodious and the two room luxury suites are huge. When I mentioned our front-facing room (with a great view of Table Mountain) was noisy from street traffic, staff offered to move us to the back, quieter side. Gold star for accommodating staff. Shuttle service reliable and on time. Steak restaurant inside the building is OK for meat lovers but many other choices within a short walk. After long flights getting here, the washer/dryer was a godsend to restock our suitcases with clean clothes for the next few weeks. Breakfast on the rooftop (covered/enclosed) was way more than adequate— with hot entrees made to order. A definite recommendation if you want extended stay accommodations in Cape Town. Since no concierge per se, best for independent travelers.

            Comfort..comfort..comfort

            We spend a week here in Capital Mirage. On the day of the arrival staff at the front desk greets us gracefully with a smile. Attending us professionally. It was of a good start. In our room, we were greeted with a complimentary bottle of red wine. The room was modern, clean, spacious with a view of the Table Mountain. Equipped with all the necessities such as washing machine and dryer, oven, toaster, chopping board, knives, nespresso coffee machine, fridge and a safe. Not forgetting a big samsung tv. The bathroom/shower was immaculate with Grohe rain shower head. Location of the hotel is several minutes walk to greenmarket square..main bus stop to citysightseeing hopon/hopoff bus..long street..bree street..bokaap.. Free shuttle to V & A Waterfront. The pool serms to be under construction and yet to be open. Once it is open, you will have a spectacular views of the Table Mountain. Well every stay in a hotel does not comes totally perfect though. Since we stayed there for a week, we sincerely noticed several things. Some of the staff at front desk didn't even put a sincere smile when we walk pass them. They were talking among themselves. Next thing that made us frustrated was one occasion while we werr waiting for the hotel shuttle service at V & A Waterfront. It was supposed to come at 1pm as scheduled. 15 minutes pass but still no one arrived. Lucky thing, there was a kind driver from Hilton Hotel looking how frustrated we were, came forth and chauffeured us back to Capital Mirage. Big thanks to him. So, when we arrived at Capital Mirage, we were shocked to see the shuttle driver sitting around and having a chat with their colleagues. I came over and told them about the unfortunate situation. The driver knowingly that he supposed to fetch passengers at 1pm and apologise. Hotel management, kindly do something about the behaviour of your hotel staff as they are key to your hotel success. All in all, we love our stay there and would certainly recommend others.
