Reviewed yesterday NEW

excellent hotel, convenient location downtown without the noise of other hotels in the centre, nice room with ample space and excellent quality of bedlinen. Would definitely recommend, although it was my first trip to south afrika and can't really tell if other hotels offer better or worse value for money.

Centrally located . Close to business district. Rooms are clean. I feel hotel maintenance is out of control. Many nagging issues. Power doesn't start when we enter the hotel. Wardrobe doors not fixed. Checkout is too slow. Break fast range is pretty average

This is an upscale Hilton, though not a true luxury property. Centrally located, it is easy to walk to some of the popular dining areas, or grab an Uber to any place in town. Rooms are comfortable and well appointed, and the pool and gym, while small, are nice.

Clean, friendly and excellent service. Highly recommended both for business and pleasure. Staff remember guest faces and address them accordingly. It is value for money in comparison to other hotel groups

Hotel is in an excellent location, near plenty of bars and restaurants. A shuttle service is provided to the Waterfront. Staff are very friendly and helpful and information provided without even having to ask. I would definitely stay here again

This hotel exceeded my expectations. Great executive lounge with good selection of food! As well good room with really nice bathtub and separate shower! The central location made it easy to get around Cape Town.

This is a halaal hotel which you only discover when you get there so no pork and limited choice of alcoholic beverages. This was probably most most disappointing stay in a hilton hotel because the service really sucks and the staff seem to not really care about guests

Having previously booked this hotel last year we had no hesitation in staying again. But we have experienced two types of Hiltons on our travels, the good and the not so good. The Cape Town Hilton is expensive compared to other hotels and for that alone we had high expectations. At this hotel every area was inconsistent, nobody immediately available...

We visited this hotel in January 2017 and we are so disappointed: in fact everything here ( I mean decent requests) seems impossible as well as a simple smile on the representatives working here. When we checked in, they were completely impolite: not even a water offered in a very hot summer day after 10 hours drive to come here:...

Thank Elena P
