I picked this hotel after reading reviews on this site and initially booked to stay for a 4 day vacation. i was picked up at the airport by a hotel shuttle and spent the drive into Cape Town in the hands of a very pleasant driver who gave me the latest local news and best activities to look out for on such a short trip.
The Hotel is located on a busy road, that gives easy access to to the CBD, one can walk quite safely or take a commuter taxi or a cab, all very well priced. The location is also a mere 15 minute walk to the water front which is what I frequently did, ut took a cab back to the hotel there after, at 40 rands each way it was affordable.
the hotel is also close to lots of restaurants, a small mall and two supermarkets. This came in handy as I was booked in on a room only basis. Finding a meal was very easy.
The hotel is small and well put together.I found it clean and the staff polite and efficient. The rooms comprised of a small living room and a bedroom. the couch was comfy and the limited satellite channels were well chosen to offer variety. The linen was nice and clean, the bathroom was modern and kept clean. there was a well equipped kitchenette.
i was on the fifth floor and had a balcony to take in the wind and had a view of the water front in the distance and signal hill at the back. The noise from the cars below was not a problem.
They offered 100Mb of wifi free every day, the speed was OK.
Overall this is a budget hotel that is clean and well positioned for all cape town activities. I would definitely say there again because i did get value for my money.
