“An excellent hotel, right in the center of Cape Town”
Reviewed 28 July 2012

We spend six nights in Mandela Rhodes Place and all three of us left with the best impressions. We had booked an apartment for three people, which was really spacious as described and tastefully furnised. The kitchen had all appliances and you could just shop from a super market \(prices are pretty low) and cook inside your appartment if you feel like staying in. Actually we never cooked inside since cape town was incredble and even the good restaurants were pretty cheap. Nevertheless, we enjoyed staying inside the apartment at cold nights, and talking or having a drink. The apartment also includes washing machine. The service is very good and all the stuff is polite, helpful and with a good energy. In the lobby of the hotel you can find fine restaurant, spa, hair salon, while it includes spa and gym. Would definately recomment to anyone going to cape town, since its right in the middle of the town and has excellent facilities in a good price.

We loved our stay at the Madela Rhodes Place. We were constantly taken aback by the service. Everyone including at the desk, the concierge and all staff went out of their way to take care of us. Guests are assured of great value, incredible safety (with uniformed staff everywhere in the hotel,) and large modern and very clean accomodations.

We enjoyed the Madela Rhodes and Capetown. North American hotels could learn about service from the likes of the Mandela Rhodes.

The Mandela Rhodes place hotel is located in the heart of a very interesting part of Cape Town. Within walking distance there are countless interesting little shops and restaurants. Also within easy walking distance are a number of very interesting places to visit, including the National Gallery, the South African museum (and planetarium), the Jewish Museum (and Cape Town holocaust center), the Company Gardens and the Castle of Good Hope - all well worth a visit! The hotel staff were very friendly and extremely helpful, and the room was beautiful and really well equipped. We would definitely stay there again if we get the chance.

The superior apartment was more than I expected, and at such a bargain! There were 2 setbacks though. Firstly, the internet connection, which the staff claimed did not work, so we could not purchase the credits from the front desk. They said they would inform us when it was up and running, but no calls came. We eventually signed up with the city's network online. Secondly, the shuttle to the V&A Waterfront only ran at 1 timing during winter, at 9am. We were under the impression that they were complimentary shuttles! Overall, we were happy at the state of the room and its location.

Dear Driann,

Thank you so much for letting us know via TripAdvisor that you found our Hotel so unexpectedly good. I am rather sad though that the Internet was down during your stay and more so that my team did not give you feedback and for this I apologise. I trust that it did not detract too much form you overall experience and trust that we will be your choice of residence when next visiting Cape Town.

Regards

Desmond

Travelling to Cape Town with a 2 year old we could not have chosen a better acconnadation. The apartment was beautiful. We were locared 3km from V&A waterfobt, a road away from Long street..... But the apartment itself was spacious. My little one had her own room with a single bed.
Since her bed time is the early evening, we spent alot of time in the apartment, which would have not been a plesent experience if it were a tiny hotel room.

Oh and the linen and comfy bed was the cherry on top.....

We left with the desire to buy our own apartment-it was that good

Next time i go to Cape Town, Mandela Rhodes will be my home away from home.

Room Tip: I assume all are the same - exceptional
