The hotel itself is great - each room is individual and when we arrived we were given the choice of rooms (the fun thing is when the rooms are unoccupied they leave the doors open and you are welcome to look at all the other rooms). The rooms are furnished beautifully and all have expansive bathrooms with nice amenities. The beds are super comfy.
I can't rave enough about the staff - everyone helps with restaurant suggestions, sightseeing ideas and just general helpfulness to ensure your stay is perfect.
As to location - we decided to stay in the city so we could get a feel for the city as opposed to the purely tourist areas of the VA waterfront. The hotel is easily positioned for the sightseeing bus, and greenmarket square is less than 5 mins walk and the museums and castle - 10 mins. At night it isn't safe to walk around - however to get to VA waterfront it was 5 mins in a taxi and less than $10. There are also some great restaurants right next to the hotel. The Africa cafe was a lot of fun, and a great way to experience the African cuisine (and well priced).
Overall we loved the stay here and couldn't fault anything.
