“Centrally located Capetown hotel”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

I had a great time at the Parliament. First, the hotel staff are super kind and friendly, my room was cozy and had a good view, the English breakfast was delish and coffee strong, and there's a wonderful Italian restaurant right next door. Many museums and other sights are walking distance. Love this place.

I was in cape town for 9 days for my vacation. I enjoyed each and every single day staying in parliament hotel. Antonio helped me to organize all my activities and made my stay a pleasant one. Thank you antonio...Great room service and friendly reception staffs. Breakfast was included in the room price and its something you should not miss, if you are staying in parliament hotel. Also found couple of indian restaurants(bukara and Eastern food bazaar) close to the hotel. Eastern food bazaar is 5 minutes walk from the hotel and i pretty much had all my lunch and dinner over there. It’s very cheap and delicious food. Hotel is located in a very safe place and easily accessible to many coffee shops, restaurants and even you can do lot of shopping around. Capetown is a very beautiful place.. friendly people and more than that an awesome weather(i am from montreal, canada :-( ).. Couple of days i have to leave early morning for safari and cage diving, so they have packed my breakfast and its a healthy one too.. Room is very spacious with a tv, air conditioner, locker and lot of space to keep your luggages. For me this hotel should be rated as 5 star for the way they treat their clients. I am very much impressed and happy to stay in parliament hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel for budget travellers. Thank you antonio,frida and all the staff members for making my trip a pleasant one…

My wife and I were on our honeymoon, so they decorated the room up a bit - a very nice touch.

Positives:
- Centrally located, great value for money hotel
- Clean and comfortable room
- Breakfast, provided by the restaurant next door is very nice
- Very friendly staff, excellent advice on what to do while in Cape Town

Do note:
- Parking in multi-level car park is recommended. However, the hotel slots are on an upper floor, so you have to spiral up in the car for quite some time
- Parking is charged separately

Room Tip: 1) The elevator can get quite noisy. We used to be too tired to notice by the time we got back, but...

A couple friends and I stayed here for about a week. The staff were lovely and very helpful. They were great about letting us leave our luggage there until check in and after we checked out. There are parking spots and you can go in and out all day for the same price. The regular beds were comfortable and the rooms were a nice size and clean.

It's about a 10-15 min drive to the V & A waterfront, as well as to the Camps and Clifton beaches.

Breakfast was included and lovely. You could order eggs and bacon and omelettes. It was a great start to the day. We loved our time in Cape Town!

As flight crew we spend over 180 nights a year in hotels and this is one of the dirtiest. The front desk staff were lovely and that's where the positives stopped. The unit we were in was disgustingly dirty. Dirt was on the shelving units beside the bed and the sheets had stains on them. The washroom was the most disgusting of all. There were dead files on the walls and there was no hot water. When we inquired about the lack of hot water the housekeepers looked at it and left without a resolution. It's probably for the best with no amenities there was only "dish" soap in a truck stop washroom dispenser to wash off with. Furthermore you have to lug your suitcases up a flight of stairs to get to the elevators.
