We spent 5 nights here after 2 weeks in the bush. The hotel is located 2 blocks from Green Market Square and 2 blocks from the hop on hop off bus line. The rooms are clean, I was not exactly impressed with the lack of privacy for the bathroom. Breakfast was great and the staff was extremely helpful and best of all the price was right. Unfortunatley they overcharge for the WiFi

We stayed for 3 nights. Very small rooms (very very). With a roll door between a room and WC, so you can't be isoleted ever. Rather frayed interior. Very poor breakfast. I noticed the unfriendliness of the staff as though they are not happy to work there at all. The parking was about 250 R per night, rather expensive but safe (the area around didn't seem to us safe enough to leave the car outside). I am not a capricious tourist but was dissatisfied with the hotel in general.

Stayed here for 8 nights on the 9. floor: it was a really nice place to be! I was a lady alone in Cape Town and the staff looked after me quite well and made my stay! The food was delicious and the staff incredibly friendly and helpful.
The room was quite small but clean and comfortable. During the day I wasn't really in the room so it didn't matter.
The Cape Diamond is centrally located in Cape Town. It is within walking distance of the main city attractions. I felt very safe going out alone in the area.
In the future I will hopefully be returning! T
Thanks to Michelle, Nataschja, David, Jimmy and all the others!

The Cape Diamond Hotel is part of the Comfortstay group. It is a three star hotel, just off Adderley Street in central Cape Town and a short walking distance to parliament, Long Street and other major attractions in the centre of town. Waterfront is a short drive from there with easy access to transport (taxis).

The hotel has an art deco feel to it, tastefully interior and a warm and elegant atmosphere. I have stayed there more than once and the friendly staff and great service always impress me.

The MD of the hotel is passionate about art & culture, and the Gatta Patat Restaurant bears evidence of it with many traditional meals and great cuisine. They also have an art cafe where local South African celebrities perform on a regular basis.

With parliament around the corner, many prominent ministers and politicians are often seen there enjoying lunch.

Stayed 3 nights in Cape diamond, good central base to explore capetown, rooms clean and fair size, breakfast good, staff excellent could not have done more for us. Can't

On the 1ste of September I went and watch a show at the Gatta Patat Teater in the Cape Diamond Hotel. It was a La Diva Show and it was awesome. I like the venue and would go back for any another show at this teater. You can sit and drink wine while the atmosphere is great. Many well-known people has sign the "wall of fame" in the Teater so I would assume there was a lot of nice shows before. Well done to the Cape Diamond Hotel for such a great venue!!!!
