City Lodge Hotel V&A Waterfront
Ranked #67 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Reviewed 18 June 2013

Good location in a safe/secure area: VA Waterfront. Plenty of restaurant options nearby and the hotel room service kitchen serves up a delicious meal.

Spacious rooms and a great view of the Waterfront area, great to people-watch perched on the windowsill.

Room Tip: Try booking via Amex Platinum to request for a room upgrade if available.

Perfect place to stop in Cape Town, very close to the Waterfront with shopping centres and restaurants. You can quickly reach any place in the peninsula and can also walk to the city centre. Large parking place for cars. Breakfast is very good, with wide range of food also evening quick dinner options. I definitely recommend it in Cape Town

Stayed at this hotel for a weekend in early June and was satisfied with my stay. The hotel is on the edge of the waterfront and you can walk to a lot of places. Rooms were comfortable and service was pretty good.

We stayed at the City Lodge V&A Waterfront for a single night for business towards the end of April - this is my second stay there. It is always clean, neat, it has absolutely everything you could wish for in terms of amenities. They also have a fabulous breakfast with loads of fresh fruits and other nice baked goodies. We were dropped at the hotel by a colleague so didn't have a car to get around. The concierge arranged a taxi for us for R30.00 (4$) to get to the Waterfront for dinner. (I wouldn't recommend the walk on your own at night). All in all a fabulous stay.

First time in cape so not sure if the service is the norm. I was not impressed and I was not upset, just meh service. The hotel rooms are small so if business traveler you may want to rethink. The bathrooms have a Euro shower so tight quarters even for a small person. The bed was comfortable. I stayed facing a busy street, may want to ask for a different room if you are not wanting noise. The location is actually so so. If walking you walk through a lot of construction right now and even on other streets not a lot of light to get to the waterfront. I thought the travel desk people were very friendly and more personable than the hotel staff. I took a ride from them to get to Table top, sadly they made me feel more welcomed.

The City Lodge was our base for four nights in Cape Town and we were very pleased with this hotel. It offers the perfect location, within an easy 10 minute walk to epicenter of the V&A Waterfront complex of shops. Our room and bed were comfortable, everything is well-maintained, the front desk staff was professional and the buffet breakfast (with made to order omelettes) was superb. No pool (just a jacuzzi) but everything else was very satisfactory.

Stayed here with my sons when we were looking at schools in CT. Well located and reasonably priced. Decent sized room, but TV was tiny and the is no room service. You can tray-in from the restaurant where prices are reasonable or access fast-food via Mr Delivery.. But it's not the same. The hotel 'does the job' - good for a business traveller on a budget who just needs a place to lay his head.

Stayed: April 2013, travelled with family
