“In CBD district but close to V & A & Long Street”
Reviewed 4 February 2013

Under 15 mins walk to the Victoria & Albert Waterfront , 10 mins other direction and you are in another main coffee/local shopping area leading to Long street or the Green Market square where you walk around the numerous local craft stalls and barter for predominantly hand made goods. Apartment was reasonably costed with all home kitchen facilities. Daily Free WI-FI vouchers. Breakfast was very reasonable, plentiful with staff who couldn't help you enough. Always welcomed as walked in and only criticism is the far too small a pool on 8th floor and little sunbathing space if you wished to do that .

Room Tip: Rooms away from lift quieter ,not that it was noisey

It is a great and well located hotel ! V&A is 15 - 20 minutes walk.
The staff was really nice and the rooms are like an apartment, with kitchen fully equipped, dining table, lounge, bedroom, 2 LCD TV's.
I would definitely recommend this hotel !!

Good priced accommodation clean not on the waterfront but close enough, ten minute walk. Good breakfast and great staff. Internet is by voucher 200mb per day per room. You can purchase more if necessary . Can be a bit noisy in early mornings if on a low floor and you room is next to the road
Full kitchen and washing facilities. stayed for 7 days then extend for another 10 days..

Room Tip: Higher floors less noise from road, be aware some rooms have open plan bedrooms and if one person is...

This is where I can say I've been in real apartments.
Rooms are huge, well equipped and with modern facilities.
2 Tvs, balcony, wifi a lots of sitting.
Bed comfortable and linen crispy. Housekeeping flawless also with the evening set up.
Breakfast is great, in quality and quantity, and served for 4 hours in the morning.
Position is the best in town, in my opinion, due the close proximity with everything, both for business and tourism purposes. Parking is free and covered.
To be improved the desk attitude, with only one woman attendand smiley, and the rest of the staff quite grave.
Value for money positive.

A fantastic hotel. Rooms are actually modern apartments equipped with full kitchen, cutlery for two, dining table, lounge & bedroom have seperate LCD TV's.
The breakfast was good. Housekeeping & room service was good, Col Cacchio pizzeria which is accross the road delivers to the room too.
It is a 25 min walk or about 5 min drive to the V & A Waterfront.
For a home away from home experience with the benefits of a hotel, I have not yet found a better Hotel / Apartment.

Stay here if you have a child- the rooms are very large suites, there is an extremely comfortable sofabed for your child and plenty of space to spread out and relax.

Good breakfast buffet with omelette station and everything else that you would need- good value.

Wouldn't eat here for dinner as restaurant has no atmosphere but otherwise the service and staff great.

Pool ok- very windy and could use some plexiglass buffers to make it more comfortable
