Protea Hotel by Marriott Cape Town Victoria Junction
Ranked #57 of 110 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Reviewed 19 October 2012

The hotel is situated on a lively road that connects the atlantic seaboard to the cbd. Design is edgy, but not at all plastic. Quality of facilities, service, and rooms is well above average.
To my mind, area is very safe, and there are several excellent restaurants and lounges/bars on your doorstep. Cbd is a ten minute walk, and waterfront a 5 minute drive.
This is not the cheapest option, but it is good value. Try to get a room higher up. Windows are double glazed, so street facing is fine. If you want dead quiet, then ask for an inward facing room.

Stayed: August 2012, travelled as a couple

The location is in Cape Town's creative industries area. Former warehouses now house trendy bars, restaurants to service the media industries - Victorai Junction fits well into this mix. The reception/bar & restaurant area is clean, light & spacious. The rooms are well appointed with rest, work & superb bathroom areas. Our visit was fine but we did hear of very slow service in the restaurant. The food was was good - breakfast especially plentiful. This would be perfect for business travellers. There's a shuttle bus service to & from the nearby waterfront area.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the rear - we did hear that the front facing rooms are rather noisy

I spent the weekend there while attending an industry event in the city. The location is ideal if you want to be close to all the hotspots of Cape Town - Waterfront, Greenpoint & CBD.

I stayed in a loft suite which cannot be compared to any other hotel room. It was large and spacious with all the mod cons expected from a suite. I never got to use the kitchenette but the Nespresso machine was a nice touch.

The hotel itself was modern with a great gym facility and underground parking which is a necessity for this part of town.

Overall, great value for money and if I would recommend it to tourists visiting the city.

Quite convenient for waterfront - but only take a taxi there as fellow travellers mugged mid-afternoon walking there. Ensure you get a good taxi rate frlom reception and have the exact change as drivers usually don't have any! Hotel of good standard - converted old Cape Town movie studios (not sure about the Art Deco description). Quite noisy at night if room overlooks Somerset Road.

Room Tip: Try to get room at back of hotel , not overlooking Somerset Road, which is quite noisy at night.

Dear ISD_64,
Thank you very much for your review of the Protea Hotel Victoria Junction. We regret that one of your fellow travellers were accosted on their way to the Waterfront. The Hotel serves as founding member in the Greenpoint Central Improvement distrtict and together with the City of Cape Town, we are hard at work to stamp out petty crime throughout the city. Additional guards have been appointed to secure the area between the Hotel and the Waterfront and of course we also offer a complimentary evening waterfront shuttle to further address this concern. In terms of the noise factor - all our windows are double glazed but being an urban hotel, we are constantly trying to find ways to better the sound insulation of our bedrooms.
Once again I thank you for taking the time to make comment on the Hotel - we value this feedback and will always strive towards improving our product and services accordingly.
Best regards,
PIETER BUITENDAG
General Manager
