City Lodge Hotel V&A Waterfront
Ranked #66 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Reviewed 10 February 2014

This hotel is very well located for those who wanna have fun within the Waterfront area. A walking distance to most of the malls and fun places in the Waterfront area. It is also very fairly priced. Though do not expect much from an old hotel. This is a chain from the City Lodge and after visiting two of them i conclude they are not very good at preparing breakfast. Take a stroll to the mall if you can there is a wide variety to choose from foodwise

Room Tip: If you can get the rooms facing inward or the higher floors you may get a glimpse of the Table Mount...

The City Lodge V and A is perfectly situated and well geared as a business hotel. The rooms would be too small for leisure , but for a 3 star I thought it was very good value for money and had all a business traveller would need. The staff deserve a mention , the concierge arranged a taxi for me in minutes and the bar staff made a hot chocolate for my dinner very close to closing time with a smile , the waitress even said " oh really it's nothing you sit and relax". Big comfortable bed, good sized working desk with PC friendly lamp. Windows that open onto the canal so you can choose between fresh air or aircon. Ideal for walking to and from waterfront.

8 of us stayed before our golf trip up the Garden Route....
Great location to stroll to the Waterfront.
Service was excellent - we were collected at the airport arranged by the hotel. Reception had our rooms ready for early check in and were extremely friendly.
The breakfast offered was excellent - as may have said, as good a choice as any top hotel.
The Manager, Dean - was very visible and proactive during our 3 day stay and his staff did him proud.
Overall, a great place that is close to the "action" and conveniently located for anything "Cape Town wise"

I spent a few nights here for a work related conference. Excellent location and far surpassed my expectations for a city lodge. Fantastic service, great food and convenient. Rooms larger than i have had for most business trips. Highly recommended,

This hotel is an excellent base to explore Cape Town especially if u love walking. Most attractions are within walking distance and/or within a tour bus/taxi route. Lovely rooms but don't count on any type of real view. Beware there is NO pool as advertised but rather a splash / jacuzzi type of outdoor thing. A bit disappointing considering that this area can get really hot in summer! All in all no real reason not to recommend. Shop for a good room rate..

This was our first visit to South Africa, arranging 8 people to travel around for 15 days is not easy, with help from friends, we were recommended City Lodge to finish our holiday and booked 4 rooms. On arrival the reception ladies were very pleasant and so helpful, we were soon unpacked, enjoying a cool drink in terrace bar. Breakfast was amazing with the quality of some very top hotels, plenty of choice, and very helpful staff. Easy walking distance to the beautiful Waterfront, to enjoy some shopping and entertainment. We used the Red city bus tours to travel up to Table Mountain, and the 2 hop on bus stops are close to City Lodge. The hotel has a travel arrangement desk and we were able to book our airport transport easily with security that we would not be panicking to be on time. Swift checkout after 3 enjoyable days in Cape Town. Well done City Lodge a great end to our biggest adventure.

We stayed in a very spaciousness quiet room on the top floor over looking the harbour for 4 nights in the week prior to Christmas. Very impressed overall, the hotel is very central, with the rooms clean and tidy. We were surprised then even with the hotel being full, it was very quiet and a good sleep was welcome. The reception staff very friendly and welcoming. Parking was easy. Highly recommended.
