location was great. Walking distance to restaurants, green city market and the waterfront. Their shuttle rates are less expensive than taking a cab. Staff is friendly.

I had to reduce my stay from 4 days to 3 which I did more than 3 days. This was the most disappointing aspect of my stay.

        a good comfortable hotel. busy but efficient. nice limitless breakfast good location in centre of cape town for shopping and entertainment. free secure parking. small gym and indoor lap pool. wifi available with vouchers. comfortable room with good facilities. excellent staff. just small criticism of over eager cleaners and mini bar checkers wanting to get into the room at 8am on new year's day!

        Good hotel. Price-performance is not right.”
        The hotel is in the center and has a good location and breakfast is ok. Unfortunately, my air conditioning was very loud and did not cool. The vault was also first broken and was torn out in the closet. Also, I noticed negatively that the guest is not informed that the water is scarce and can be saved. I have seen better in other hotels.

        Didn't look like the photos!”
        This hotel is older and dirtier than it looks. It's ok in reality but should have managed our expectations more. The room carpet doesn't seemed to be vacuumed and when we checked in our room, the toilet/bathroom hasn't been cleaned! We left after 1 day in this hotel as we also didn't like to stay in the city centre as there are a lot of beggars and scary people looking at us/approaching us.

        Two stars...”
        Firstly, it was very expensive. They’ve removed the swimming pool and none of the fountains were working I guess due to the water restrictions but we weren’t informed. They also charge extra for parking. It took 15min to try and sort out our check out since they weren’t sure whether we’ve paid or not, it didn’t show up on their system. But the staff was really friendly.

        The room was a bit small, only 1 bedside table could fit but adequate for our needs. Well situated for the Cape Town Cycle Race Start and close enough to walk to Waterfront and to City restaurants. Staff were friendly. Will Stay again although this is more a middle of the road 3 star, rather than 4 star, hotel

        The hotel had a very large unruly party of Argentinian rugby players staying, slamming doors and generally being very noisy. I asked if anything could be done to give us a better night's sleep and they gave us a complimentary upgrade to a 2 bed, 2 bath suite with lounge, kitchen and balcony on the top floor! Fabulous!

        The Fountains Hotel in Cape Town offers good value with a delicious breakfast buffet, clean rooms and friendly staff. The location is central and close to shopping and transporation. The concierge was helpful and offered us suggestions of day trips. Our only disappointment was the location of our room. We faced another building and could not keep our window open. This made our room quite dark. In spite of this we would definitely stay at this hotel again.
