“Great value for money”
Reviewed 19 February 2014

We stayed our first night in Cape Town at this hotel.
Its a very cozy hotel, the room was very small but its a great value for money (breakfast was good and included in the price).
The hotel is centrally located. It is walking distance to the best dining options in Cape Town and only a couple mins walk to the Hop On / Hop Off Bus stop (which is the best way to see Cape Town) and Mount Nelson Hotel.

We discovered this hotel through FNB's rewards program and used that, along with TripAdvisor, as our proxy for judging the quality. This hotel just didnt live up to expectation.

We could not sleep because of the noisy wooden flooring and the constant movement of guests.

Bring ear plugs if you want to stay at this hotel.

If you like a small, personally run hotel in a charming old Victorian building, and at a very reasonable price, I think you'll love Fritz Hotel. The location just off Kloof St. is great. It's close to several restaurants and shops, and you can even walk into the city centre, yet it's quiet, apparently safe, and has great views. If your taste is for new hotels and fittings, this is not for you. As someone else noted, some of the fittings could do with some TLC.

My room overlooked the courtyard and had a great view of Lion's Head. I had a very comfortable bed, a small old TV, and a spacious bathroom with no shortage of hot water in winter. Wifi in the room was acceptable and strong in the reception / lounge area. Breakfast was very good. Staff were unfailingly friendly and helpful.

It's not everyone's cup of tea, but after two long visits it's definitely my first choice.

Second time to stay here; our preferred spot when in the city.

Plus points:
- Central, but quiet location; walk to Kloof str, Long str, The Labia movie theatre, the Mt Nelson, The Wellness Centre, Company Gardens, various museums etc.
- Fully stocked fridge, fan, hairdryer in room.
- Crisp, clean good quality bedlinen.
- Clean towels.
- Excellent quality breakfast with a variety of cold meats, cheese, breads.
- Friendly & welcoming; immediate response to e-mail queries.
For the above I give it a Very Good rating.

Points for improvement:
- If u've been to Grahamstown, u'll know the type of hotel: a gracious old lady who needs a bit more powder on the face to hide the ever-forming wrinkles. That's all. Just a bit of TLC. This will justify the R950 per room per night.
For this I would give it an Average rating.

I definitely recommend Fritz Hotel if u want a quiet, central location with warm service and quality breakfast.

Fritz is our preferred hotel in the Kloof street area and wonderfully central. However, the signs are all around that it needs some maintenance and TLC. Broken window latch and curtain rails in our room. Great breakfast served as late as you like.

I booked this hotel expecting the worse, however, I was quite surprise in the most positive way. They were over booked my room when I arrived, therefore they gave me an upgraded room. This room had it's own courtyard and extras within the room. The hotel was close to many local restaurants and tourist attractions. The hotel was quite and clean. Free wireless wifi was available, but wasn't told till check out. The staff helped with booking tours and things that were more local attractions.
