“Good place to stay for a weekend”
Reviewed 3 July 2012

I visited Cape Town in April. We booked this hotel for 2 nights and though we didnt spend much time at the hotel besides crashing for the night, it was a good place for the money we paid. The room was spacious and clean. High speed internet was available and parking was available as well. It was attached to a mall from where you could order food. It was more of a budget hotel with a limited staff. We had breakfast at the buffet which was quite nice and tasty.

Chose the hotel for its location, a short walk from the beach and vibrant Sea Point promenade. The first problem we encounted was locating the Reception area from the garage area, which is shared with other retail stores on the ground floor of hotel building, reception was later found on the 2nd floor of the hotel, lack of facilitation, signs are placed on awkard spots and are not clearly marked for visitors to find. After walking past doctors surgery rooms we approached the reception area. After check-in, we entered the room, no fridge or mini-bar, although so advertised on the company website. There was no kettle or coffee and tea placed in our room. Room only had a shower which is okay for one or two nights but if you need one then best request a room which has a bath. The view was a bit of a let down, looked into an grey apartment block, even after requesting a room with a view of the mountain. Overall reception staff are friendly but no-one was ever visible at the front desk when we needed assistance. Just felt as though the hotel has no feeling or character, just a building with rooms to rent hoped the attitudes of staff would at least make up for the lack of facilities. Nothing fantastic and would probably not be back. There are better options in this area at a competitive rate.

Management not very accommodating. Was being charged to upgrade rooms, but not being refunded to downgrade - had a deluxe suite facing the street and BP garage. Mislead with Groupon vouchers - groupon stated 'save 50%' only to find out we saved R50pn .Good sleep, loud noises in the morning though. Convenient location. All in all, decent 'value for money' option. Wouldn't stay there again due to lack of accommodating service from management.

Room Tip: Don't expect great views from this hotel.

I enjoyed staying at the new kings hotel. the rooms were great and it is excellent value for money and it is in an excellent location. I did however find the hotel staff somewhat lacking in service. When I arrived they jsut handed me my key and expected me to know where everything was without telling me. But overall my stay was enjoyable and the best part is the piazza below with all the restaurants , my favorite is sumo . try the lemon lockstar it is a fantastic drink

Room Tip: make sure your request sea facing

Great location central to CBD and Atlantic Seaboard. Very spacious rooms and most comfotable hotel bed I have ever slept in. Breakfast spread much larger than normal and really good ! Free parking a huge bonus in this congested area !

Room Tip: Upgrade to a Deluxe room - small price for a lot of additional space and a huge bath !

Excellent location close to Cape Town CBD and Camps Bay.
Our room had a very nice view of the Lion's Head.
Rooms are very spacious and comfortable.
Breakfast is very good and offers a wide variety.
Free parking and Internet is included, although the internet speed is not very fast.
Can definitely recommend this hotel and since I travel often to Cape Town, I will consider staying at the same hotel next time.
Good value for money!
