Protea Hotel by Marriott Cape Town North Wharf
Ranked #58 of 110 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 November 2012

The hotel is well located close to the Convention Center and within walking distance to the Waterfront and the long street and district 6 museums.
The room - suite was pretty large for 2 people with good size living room and full kitchen (dish washer and washer/dryer included).
The personel was really nice. The pool is small but good enough to relax after a long walk,
Free wifi but need to ask for access card at the front desk (100MB per connection).

My preferred hotel in Cape Town. The rooms are massive suites with Lounge, Bedroom, Kitchen and bathrooms. Many times larger than other hotels I've stayed at in the same area. Service is excellent and my only criticism would be that the breakfast somewhat lets down what is otherwise a very nice base. I suspect it has more of a business hotel feel than other vacation hotels but if you want somewhere very comfortable with really comfortable suites then this is a really good choice.

I prefer rooms with long galley kitchen as the living room areas are larger.

This is a small hotel with very good sized rooms very close to the Convention Centre if that is your business, but otherwise not too badly located for access to Long Street and adjoining streets for dining and bars, or the waterfront dining and shopping areas. Breakfast is a good offering and the rooftop pool was a major hit with our kids. Room service was OK, but generally the standards of service were always very good.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Convention Centre side are better in the short-term as there is a large construction si...

The hotel is situated in a pleasant sqare within easy waliking distance of Waterfront -even for oldies like us! Checking in was pleasant and easy and whilst I was doing this my husband was shown to the car park and our bags were carried in. Wifi was free and automatically provided at check in. We were very pleased with the accommodation. A large sitting and dining room comfortablely and tastefully furnished. Big windows, one with a balcony and a partial view of table mountain, the other overlooking the square. A seperate kitchen area with fridge, freezer,hob, oven and microwave. Deep joy! There was also a washer/dryer with washing powder available from reception. Comfortable bedroom with plenty of storage space and a safe for valuable. The bathroom had both bath and a huge shower. Evening meals could be taken in the restaurant which also had a good room service menu as did a local Italian restaurant where one could charge meals to the hotel bill. Breakfast was buffet style with a very wide choice. A most comfortable and pleasant place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Table Mountain.

Stayed in a 1 bed apartment for a week whilst visiting on business. Fantastic facilities including seriously comfy bed, 2 flat screen TVs, spacious bathroom, fully equipped kitchen with everything you need plus dishwasher and washing machine. The whole place was spotlessly clean and the staff were all friendly, helpful and went out of their way for me. I didn't manage to use the rooftop pool but it did look lovely. The gym was basic but did the job - needed a way to work off the fantastic breakfasts! Will definitely stay again.

We stayed in this lovely apartment for 11 days. It was a combination of attending conference at CTICC and also holiday. We were very happy since we arrived there. Staffs were nice, polite and helpful. Breakfast was great. Room was spacious and comfortable. Views from balcony also nice. Two TV's were provided. Bathroom amenities is good. Kitchen was equipped with cooking utensils, also with microwave and big firdge. Wifi was provided, although we had to request a new password everyday, and one password only can be used for one gadget or tablet. It was within walking distance to city central, market also torather expensive shop and resto in waterfronts,a and it is only 2-5 minutes to go to CTICC ( capetwon convention center). Will stay ther again if I ever have chance to visit Capetown..

Protea North Wharf has to be the best place to stay in Cape Town. Its only about 5 minutes walk to the waterfront, within walking distance to Artscape ( for Gershwin's Porgy and Bess). and has spacious apartments masquerading as hotel rooms
However the creme de la creme of my stay proved to be the very helpful hotel staff who went out of their way to help me book tours and transport and in general were just wonderful about everything.
Some of my collegaues ( we were at a meeting) happened to stay in nearby hotels and the service they received was of a very variable standard and sometimes unpredictable in outcome.
