I was staying at the Parliament Hotel for 3 nights with my partner some days ago. The hotel is very well situated, near almost everything that tourists would like to see in Cape Town: The Company Gardens, the castle, Greenmarket, Long Street etc. It is only 30 minutes walk for the Waterfront (the port and its shops, the Aquarium etc), and very close (5 minutes) to the Hop on Hop off buses (double deckers to visit the peninsula). There are supermarkets quite close (10 minutes walk): Spar, Shoprite etc. The railway station, the station for buses coming from Jo'burg and other destinations and the station for the bus (My citi) going to the airport are 20 minutes walk away.
The staff at the hotel is very kind (and I really insist on that), they would give you lots of advice and assist you in everything. Breakfast is pretty ok: it's a buffet with bacon, yoghurt, fruit salad, cereals, bread and some cake, but you can always ask for scrambled eggs (with tomatoes, mushrooms or sausages) which they prepare very well and quickly. There is wi-fi in the room, air conditioned, flat screen and coffee/tea facilities.
Both me and my partner would definitely recommend this hotel for its location, kind staff and great accommodation. And Cape Town it's a definitely great city and place to visit!
