I rate this a "Very Good for the following reasons: The location is outstanding. The price is less than the Inn at the Square (next door) which we have stayed at before and they have family rooms.. We traveled with our adult children from the USA. They had children ages 5 & 7.
We had a "double room" for ourselves and they had 2 rooms next door that joined and that included a large bed for the adults and 2 single beds for the kids. The room could be closed off so they could sleep. Perfect! A/C worked perfectly.
Remember that Green Market Square sets up and tears down daily. If you are a really light sleeper this may not work for you but our kids found watching this from the balcony well worth it.
Of course there will be beggars (more so at night). It is just diagonal to the Green Market Square so the tourist population will be at it's peak and the probability of getting money given to you is higher. Just say a firm "NO".
One half block from Long Street which we all walked many times. Perfectly safe area for someone who uses common sense. Took the kids to Addis Ethiopian restaurant for an adventure dinner. Fun!
Older but fine for us. Beds were very good, room was clean, breakfast is included and is adequate but nothing exceptional. Included makes the price "right". I went down very early and drank coffee every morning and all the staff were friendly and helpful (brought me milk).
We always leave Rand 10 per night for the maid who cleans the room. They are not often remembered and they work hard.
Rand 50 buys you Wifi. Reasonable charge for a good connection.

Situated right in the heart of the city on Greenmarket Square with its daily African market, you will be staying in the oldest hotel in Cape Town.

The TUDOR Hotel is situated in the heart of Cape Town, next to Greenmarket Square, the vibrant Long Street and St. Georges Mall with its shops, bars and many restaurants to visit. It is only a short walking distance away from major sight seeing points, such as the Company Gardens, the Parliament and museums. Other attractions can be reached via Public Transport (MyCiti Bus Service) or by a radio taxi. Cape Town's Convention Center (CTICC) is just down Long Street and to be reached within 15 min.
