Reviewed 29 December 2013

We stayed in this hotel because compared to other hotels reviewed on Trip Advisor, this had comments that we liked. Most others hotels had comments such as "unfriendly staff" or "not a nice area" but not the Parliament Hotel. The staff were very friendly and were willing to do whatever you requested. They booked good restaurants for us, sight-seeing tours, taxis, etc. and all with a smile. The rooms were clean, comfortable and with air-conditioning. The inclusive breakfast was served in the adjoining Italian Restaurant and was good. The hotel is very centrally located and the charges are very reasonable.

We stayed at this hotel for over a week. The hotel is located a nice stroll away from Long street and all the museums. The local police station is on the same street and we felt very safe. The staff was remarkable, and hotel was super clean (even more than 5 star hotels in North America).

This affordable hotel is centrally located near the Company Gardens and is walking distance to the Castle of Good Hope, downtown shopping areas, and the colorful Bo-Kaap neighborhood. The staff was incredibly friendly, and breakfast was great. The rooms are just ok, but there is free wifi, a computer in the lobby, and affordable indoor parking. The biggest issue was the showers--each shower has its own heater, and the one in room 501 was extremely difficult to regulate. It varied from comfortable to cold every few minutes, which was unpleasant, and I got burned trying to adjust it. We were moved to a larger room, 503, whose shower temperature was steadier.

Room Tip: 5th floor and above have views of table mountain. 503 is significantly larger than 501 (probably si...

It was a good price, good room. The breakfast was not so good and the location is terrible. We were afraid to get home very late... the parking was not for free (and we didnt now that). There are better places to stay

Good value. We stayed over for 1 night - had a function in town so did not spend a lot of time in the hotel. Very friendly service. Room adequate - not charming. Simple but good breakfast. Only negative was shower; plumbing needs work - either too hot or too cold water, not enough pressure. Would stay again, though, considering the rate and location.

Bang in the city centre, informative and super helpful folks at the bell desk, clean and large rooms at good prices (considering it is in the middle of Capetown Central), great accessibility makes it a good place to see the city from. Net, a good hotel (very unlike a warm B&B we stayed in Cape Town earlier) which is affordable- Better suited for business travelers with very little for the touristy types.
