Extremely impressed with hotel upgrade done from what it was. Definitely a much better hotel than most in the surrounding areas Close to Parliament (2-3 minutes walk) It is a business and leisure hotel.

Staff are always friendly and helpful throughout the hotel. However the room was a little small with no drawer space and broken suitcase rack. Shower gel does triple duty as your shampoo and conditioner as well! Restaurant ii slow with breakfast a 25 minute wait. Please cook your poached eggs without vinegar in the water!

My wife and i spend our last 3 nights here during our trip. We booked the Jr. Suite and was extremely pleased by it. We didnt eat on the property, since there was so many restaurants near by, but we walked passed it every morning and smelled quite nice. The hotel is in an excellent location. Close to Long st...

Breakfast could be better. The staff apparently very friendly, but clearly have been instructed to trot out the same cliches. The hotel, although well decorated is sterile and lacking atmosphere. Worth it, but won't return.

This hotel offers some of the most beautiful and modern rooms I have seen in Cape Town. It is definitely value for money and I would have thought that it is a 5 star hotel. The restaurant is a bit expensive, but the food is of very high quality and when brought to the table, plated like 5 star cuisine...

I stayed there for a night on May 5th, 2014. Great hotel, very good location (5 minutes from the Green market), quiet, clean and food is good. The room I booked was supposed to be small. Actually, it is not that small since the space is well used.
