Very nice staff, running to do whatever we asked for. Great location, 1/2 block from beach, 1/2 block from main street. Near shops and transportation. Huge shower but smallish bathroom. Smallest pool I have ever seen. over all very nice, modern efficient place.

Don't hesitate to go to Marriott Sea Point. The rooms are comfortable. The food is delicious. Very nice lobby. Attentive staff. Great location for sightseeing and shopping. A great place to stay while visiting Cape Town South Africa.

Really really average hotel, especially after the great value and luxury we experienced on way to Cape Town from the garden route. Finer details missing - no wine glasses, face cloths, tooth brush holders etc .. I felt ripped off. Pool was also not operating. One lift for the entire building. Shocking all round.

We stayed at this hotel for three night while touring with Gate 1 Travel. The hotel was clean and rooms well appointed with then exception of the bathroom, which was extremely small and had no electrical outlets, had to plug in the hairdryer in the bedroom. However, the breakfast buffet made up for any incontinence. Wide variety of fruits, pastries,... More

Stayed at this hotel while traveling SA. Very cute interior, complimentary coffee, and great staff. Everything was very clean and the area is pretty walkable to bars/restaurants as well as ocean front.

I like the Sea Point neighborhood and I think it's an excellent choice for foreign visitors to Cape Town -- safe, atmospheric and convenient. Only a block walk from the very pleasant seaside promenade. At the right price, the Protea hotel is a good choice. While not as luxurious as most Marriott properties, this Protea offers what I'd describe as... More

Lovely clean comfortable allergy free room. The larger rooms with balcony are much nicer if you are there for a longer stay. The staff are very friendly. It is close to restaurants and shops, and is on the bus route. It is fairly close to the V&A Waterfront and Cape Town central. The larger rooms have a refrigerator.
