“The staffs are friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

Facilities are usually comfortable. There was no also be troubled with water around. Staff are ちcheerful, and did a polite response. Because the hotel away from the waterfront, shopping might be a little inconvenient. I was able to see the Table Mountain from the window in the room. Be careful to stay away parrot , it will bite you.

Location is very good, specially if you are self driving. We had a great bed and breakfast was alright. In the room there was a very loud and annoying noise, probably water running in some pipe. The shower water would be either to hot or too cold. Hotel has a very decadent feeling, most definitely needs some work done.

We stayed for one night at The Capetonian, Cape Town this weekend. Although oldish and in need of a revamp, I took the 4 star rating in my stride. Although clean, I was surprised to find a plastic beaker in the bathroom (the last time I've seen one in a room, was in a 2 star hotel in India). We ordered 2 beers via room service, & luckily I had an opener, because the waiter arrived with none. We signed for these. The Saturday at 07:30 am we got a rude wake up call confirming & informing us that we had 2 beers, and that we have to pay for this in CASH at reception. Half awake, I immediately inquired why cash? But was told that reception ordered it. I've never skipped on a hotel bill, & this really made me feel like a crook. Besides, they had our credit card, why worry? By paying cash, they can write that off, and not pay tax. This really is not a way to treat guests. We could not get out of there quicker - and they will never see us again

This hotel is centrally located and mins from all of the attractions of Cape Town. Close to public transportation and the airport. Dining was pretty good except there needs to be more variety at breakfast, fried fish and pork needs to be added to the menu but it was still pretty decent.The dinner buffet was delicious but the drinks need to be inclusive in the pricing not extra. WIFI worked really well in the rooms and common areas. The staff was superb and professional. Would stay here again for sure.

Room Tip: Request a higher floor for better views.

We stayed at the Capetonian hotel for 4 nights in early January.
The hotel, though a bit dated inside, we found to be clean, tidy and well kept. The staff were always polite and friendly and there's a parrot who lives at the reception called 'Captain'. The breakfasts were very nice and there was a large choice.
There was a chef to cook eggs to your choice and also to make fresh waffles.
There's a car park at the front of the hotel, which is free for hotel guests to use. Other hotels charge extra for parking.
The location of the Capetonian is very good. Its a short walk to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and its a short distance from the N1 and N2 roads.
Some of the other reviews that we had read, people complained about the rooms being dated. Yes, they maybe a bit dated, but our room was very well presented, clean and tidy. For the money we paid for this hotel, including a good breakfast each day, the Capetonian was very good value and can definitely recommend a stay at the Capetonian hotel.

Average quality hotel, in central Cape Town, walking distance from CTICC and the CT club life.
The rooms are decent, and are rather designed for business travelers (big stand alone desk with power points) than for holiday makers. A bathroom combines bath and shower in one, which is totally uncool, and if you are taller than 1,7m, you will need to bend to get under the water.
Breakfast is below average, both quality of the food and service. The hotel is overstaffed, yet the tables are half served as the staff members wonder around and prefer to chat to each other rather than cleaning the tables. Parking is very limited.
