Part of the reason I feel inclined to give this place 5 stars is that they DONT ADVERTISE FREE INTERNET. you pay for it. now, THAT MAKES SENSE. I definitely don't mind paying for it. what drives me nuts is the countless places that list "free wireless internet" and seem to think the word "free" makes it optional. Otherwise, the...

Garden Center Holiday Apartments sounds attractive on paper!! But please take note of the following: 1. Close to amenities and shops. 2.Walking distance from City center. 3.Difficult to access apartments as indications are poor to non-existent. 4.Room 501 has maybe the oldest mattress on the market - please stay clear!! Door appears to have been damaged and forced open. 5.First...

Stayed here for 3 days on a business trip. Rooms look a bit old and worn, but they were comfortable and had enough space. For the rate we paid it was OK. If you are used to 4 or 5 star establishments...in fact, if you're in the habit of referring to your holiday accommodation as "establishments", then this is probably...

My daughter and I went back to Gardens Centre Apartments and this year, the experience was MUCH BETTER than last year's! The key to the apartment was on hand for us and there was no need to go chasing after someone to let us in. Having arrived on a Saturday, after hours, I was suitably impressed at this. From there...

This is a fantastic choice for solos or couples visiting Cape Town. I paid R800 per night and was given a 14th floor room with a panoramic view of Table Mountain. My room was incredibly dated, sort of a 1970s time warp, with dents and scratches everywhere, but it didn't matter - linen and towels were clean, the room was...

My family often stays here when they visit in Cape Town. The location is so central, the shopping mall downstairs is great for buying groceries for self catering (open til late), or grabbing a meal. Free parking, and easy check in. The hotels is well services. The rooms are old, and could really do with an update but that's just...
