      Holiday in Cape Town”

      We enjoyed our stay in the Icon Luxury Apartment in Cape Town. While we were a little disappointed to find our view of table Mountain Blocked by another high rise block development the location of this apartment in Long Street allowed an easy walk to many of the facilities we used while in the Cape. The food hall/Shop in the ground floor area meant food was always readily available except on Saturday and Sunday and the cooking facilities in the apartment were excellent. Well worth the cost paid/

      Great Location”

      If you wish to stay in Cape Town CBD, which is full of delightful restaurants and bars and at the same time be close to the V & A waterfront, I would recommend Icon apartments. We stayed there for 8 nights recently while vacationing in Cape Town. The location is excellent, our check-in was rather smooth (I note some reviewers had issues with that), the one bedroom apartment came with a parking which is very useful if you are staying in the CBD area. The apartment is on the smaller side and the bedroom faces the inside corridor of the floor, which means that all movements and chatter in the corridor is clearly heard in the bedroom and does not work well if you are looking towards a good nights sleep. Also the apartment does not have a balcony, which was a bit of a disappointment and the TV channels are not even worth talking about. On the positive side - it was serviced all throughout our stay (even on public holidays and weekends) which was cool, and there was no issues with water.

      The self-catering apartments have all the amenities. The rooms are clean with modern furniture. You are centrally located in the middle of the city near restaurants, shopping centers, the airport, and public transportation. You have a beautiful view of the city and table mountain. It is quite surroundings, well secured hotel, and well secured parking. I intend to return next year when I visit Cape Town again.

      Best Self Catering Apartments in Cape Town”

      My kids aged 6 and 10 and I stayed at the Ikon Luxury Apartments in January 2021 for a few days and absolutely loved it! The building has so many stores to purchase edibles from all we needed to do was take the lift down to the ground floor! We took a walk down town as the location of the apartment was central and safe even a 5minute drive to the waterfront! We enjoyed trips to table mountain, The Aquarium, Drives on the red buss and so much more! Kids loved the fact that they could go down to the pool and gym on their own and laze in the sun on the sunbeds - absolutely safe! We enjoyed the luxury big showers and lovely huge bathtub! Absolutely spacious apartment with all you need in the kitchen as well as a lovely balcony overlooking the stunning city! Choose the Ikon Luxury apartments today and you will not regret it! The experience will leave you longing for more and you will definitely return! Ash, Chazé & Chirannah :)

      Great apartments in good location”

      The apartmets are serviced daily (Hide valuebles , not because of the hotel or Cape Town but it's the world) Apartments are one up from a hotel room and well equiped should you not go to the thousands of restaurants nearby. Fridge, cooker, crockery for four, microwave. Bedrooms well appointed, only down is light comes from the general aera, take something to black out if that bothers. Parking below the hotel included in room price. Be cautious walking outside at night, it's right at the bottom of town by the Cape Town convention centre and gets deserted.. Take a driving service (No Taxi!), its cheap. No room services, no catering inside hotel but everything withing 30 seconds.

      Good Location right downtown”

      Felt a little disorganized when it came to the parking spot....we stayed there four nights and we found a car parked in our allocated spot three days out of four and was allocated another spot so it felt disconcerting. We shared an apartment that had two separate bedrooms with another couple but shared one bathroom so when we realized the toilet was not flushing we immediately told reception which told us that the maintenance people had already left for the day and that it would only be resolved I told her that this was unacceptable with four of us sharing one toilet that didn't flush and told her that they absolutely have to resolve this issue, they proceeded to get it resolved by the time we came back from supper. We had two other rooms that were occupied and one of them asked to change as the room was not in very good shape. The apartment were not as pristine as we thought we were paying for...such as scratched walls and broken blinds etc. But an overall good place to stay while in Cape Town just thought we were getting a fabulously rich place but it fell short of our expectations....

      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
