Situated a pleasant 5 min walk from the V&A Waterfront this hotel is superb, rooms are modern and clean, staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly. Highly recommended. Great value for money if you wish to avoid the pricey waterfront properties and enjoy the same experience.

This is truly a wonderful hotel, right in the waterfront, rooms are great, clean, new, big spaces, the staff are so helpful, I cannot rate this hotel highly enough.
We travel from Australia to Cape Town every year and always stay here, value for money you cannot beat this hotel. Get a Procard and start getting discounts from rooms to restaurants, with the card you get a free upgrade.
Rooms that have a view of the mountain are great, they also have family rooms with 2 bedrooms, great for business or for holiday.

Room Tip: Rooms with a view of the mountain

This hotel is about 500m (800 yards) from the vibrant Waterfront in Cape Town.
It has had a compete makeover and renovation.
It is located in a centuries old prison and shares the premises with the Graduate School of Business of the University of Cape Town ( one of the top Universities in the world)
Rooms are smallish but really well set up.
Good breakfast as well.

Room Tip: No view so ask for ground floor room

Stayed here for two nights with a school sports tour.

Ideal for big groups as hotel has friendly staff, great breakfasts (if a little expensive!!!!!). The hotel also has complimentary wifi and computers.

The hotel is in a great location as it is only 3 minutes walk to the waterfront. The hotel has a Gym and you can pay 5 rand for laundry. My only criticism is that the rooms are a bit small but they are comfortable.

Overall, would recommend this hotel for a big group or a family.

The hotel is located within walking distance to the waterfront which made it easier for us a family of five to just walk across to board a ferry to Robben Island, the Two Oceans Aquarium and other places of attraction. Breakfast was very good. Rooms are vey nice and clean and finishes mordenised. Although there were a few glitches staff are very professional and efficient these were resolved on time. As a light sleeper I had a problem with air con noise. All in all this us a great hotel to stay I would recommend it.

This was a perfect hotel in every way. Great location, amazing rooms, food was first class and the staff were exceptional. Highly recommended and they were able to house our party of 86 fantastically well. The best hotel I have stayed at in Cape Town.
