This is a boutique hotel in the center of CapeTown near Heritage Square. It is teeming with people from Monday until late Friday night when everything shuts down for the weekend. Know that Friday nights get a bit noisy until midnight when the nearby music establishments shut down. You will have a tough time finding a meal in the area...

It was a very pleasant stay, stuff is very helpful and friendly. We had a very nice room, breakfast was very good, for us everything was perfect. The area is good, with a lot of nice restaurants around. If we will come again to Cape Town, we will stay again at Cape Heritage Hotel.

I tend to opt for 5* hotels when travelling to new countries but something about the boutique design and location beckoned us to the Cape Heritage. We were not disappointed! The service was brilliant, from TJ, Kelly and indeed everyone on the team. They advised us on where to eat, which driver to use (Mr Domingo - spectacular!), etc. The...

This is a great location. More importantly the staff at the Cape Heritage were fabulous from start to finish. Cannot thank them enough and kindly set us up with a baby cot in a communal room for our toddlers afternoon nap (before our 11 hour flight). Many thanks!

This hotel is ideally sited for visiting all of Cape Town's city attractions as well as being very safe for eating out in the evenings. The staff are very helpful and although the rooms are a bit old fashioned they are spacious and very clean. Breakfasts were excellent and the staff made arrangements for other meals and sightseeing etc.
