I cannot say enough good things about our time at this hotel. The location is fabulous,with entertainment, shopping, restaurants, ATM, aquariums, bus, taxi right out the door. The staff is so pleasant and accommodating. The room was lovely and spacious. And the view from our window of the mountain and the small harbor was fascinating and ever changing. You can't...

This hotel is 5 star all the way. The location is on the V&A Waterfront perfect for a walk along the waterfront for a fresh fish & chips lunch or amazing sushi from one of the fantastic restaurants along the hotel. There is also a shopping centre within walking distance with stores ranging from luxury to mainstream.

The hotel V & A continues to be an optimal choice in Cape Town. The hotel's location is excellent, the building is historic, the breakfast is delicious and the staff is very gentle. Nonetheless, we believe that V&A hotel should go through a revival of it decor. Time passes and things deteriorate.

Stayed here for 4 nights as part of our honeymoon in a mountain facing room. The view of table mountain and the harbour from our room was something to behold, absolutely beautiful and we sat there watching the world go by and the seals playing in the harbour every morning. The staff were friendly and attentive and made our honeymoon...

Located right on the waterfront at Cape Town harbour the Victoria and Alfred Hotel puts guests right in the heart of a lively area with many shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment. Also views from the rooms deliver stunning views of the waterfront and Table Mountain, an added bonus. The public rooms aren’t enormous and provide a cosy atmosphere for travellers....

Very well situated hotel for the waterfront. Service was excellent from the time we arrived until we left. Views of Table Mountain from our room. Excellent breakfast. Would definitely recommend this hotel for a couple of nights stay in Cape Town. We loved it.

Perfect central location for discovering Cape Town and its surrounds. Our organiser Sandie from Destinations Africa planned an ideal 4 days. V&A exceeded our expectations for service and quality. What a spectacular view of table mountain from our rooms.

I'm normally a person who likes to stay in-town, however for Cape Town this was a terrific location as a home base for 5 days. The hotel services -- from the fabulous Matthys at the front desk to the restaurant staff and porters -- were AMAZING. The hotel is a 50 Rand ($5-ish) ride from the center of town. Our...

I stayed with my wife in a entry level room which are the loft rooms situated on the 3rd floor. Perhaps this was just a problem with the loft rooms but there was a lot of noise. Anytime someone walked passed our room you could hear their footsteps as if the door was open. Hotel staff barged in unannounced quite...
