4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012

We recently stayed at manhattan lofts. We are also in the hospitality business. We can speak highly of this apartment! Everything was very
clean and the furniture stylish. Everybody was very friendly and helpfull. Also safe with the undercover parking. Can recomend it to anyone who wants to stay in Cape Town.

My husband and i visited cape town again after 7 years and we wanted to stay in town this time round. We contacted Manhattan Lofts and we got an immediate response from Bobby Fischer regarding the rates and availability. Bobby was very responsive to our needs and made sure that we were comfortable with everything that was being proposed well before our arrival.

The loft we stayed in was definitely up to our expectations. It was very secure, easily accessible and a very nice view. We had maid service everyday, laundry facilities were also provided and the driver even came to pick up and drop the laundry:-)

We were very happy with the loft itself, its location (walking distance from Loop and Long Street as well as the Green Market Square!) and the overall welcome of staff working there as well as the flexibility and responsiveness of Bobby. It definitely made our stay memorable!

We have already recommended Manhattan Lofts to our friends and family!

My wife and i visited Cape Town from09/05/12 to 12/05/12. I wanted to surprise her by b ooking a top class apartment.The pictures on the website are to die for. When we got to the lofts ( finally) i could have died. IT is old and smelly. It is in a down trodden area of Cape Town. Another review says it is near everything. He is mistaken. The lower end of Bree st is close to the V AND A .We phoned Bobby and were met with a lot of resistance from him.We finally got him to agree to move us to an apartment in the waterfront. This after many phone calls and 2 different cell numbers for Bobby. To add insult he marked up the waterfront units by 100 percent. This we found because we went onto the website of HHH.South Africa is a beautiful country but people like Bobby make it their hunting ground.

Room Tip: Stay at the waterfront or at any hotel in or about yhe waterfront.

BobbyCapeTown, Owner at Manhattan Lofts, responded to this review, 19 May 2012
This is the type of review that is very misleading to other travelers !

Firstly the guest booked 1 day before his arrival at Manhattan Penthouse
which makes one feel how seriously does he takes his vacations!

Secondly the guest has attacked my character more than the apartment.
which i find very strange.

I did not charge the guests a 50% cancellation fee as per our reservation/ cancellation policy . Furthermore i assisted the guest with immediate accommodation in the V/A waterfront "front row" facing the Yacht Marina which is the most exclusive part . The client informed me that he had a budget of R2000. I offered a special last minute rate of R2000 per day . which is 50% discount off the rack rate of R4000 per day

I do not understand how a person can make a remark "that it is people like Bobby that make South Africa a hunting ground"

Please read our other reviews and ignore this review which is not a true reflection on anything .

I also don't understand how a person can say smelly apartment in dirt part of Cape Town
Clearly if one reads the other reviews you should get a better picture of the type of person that wrote this review from Durban

I rented the loft at Manhattan complex from Bobby Fisher this January for my first Holiday in South Africa. The loft is located in a very nice area with lots of Bars and Restaurants. The area is very nice since it is lively and very central. From the loft, you can walk to all different areas of the city. It is about 10 minutes walk to the V&A or waterkant. The loft gives a breath taken view to the table mountain and up to the ocean. You can see the all city from the balcony that is doing the corner of the building. And what about a nice Jacuzzi and South African wine while you enjoy this view. The inside of the loft is over the expectation I had from the pictures on the website. It is well decorated, rooms are big and the double showers with view on the all loft/city make it even more special. The beds are very comfortable, everything is in good condition and you have satellite TV + Wi-Fi. The Loft can easily accommodate 6 persons, it was very big for me alone!

When renting from Internet, we never know if we can trust the owner/host. But I can say that Bobby Fisher is an honest man and a very good host. What ever I needed over my stay, Bobby provided it to me right away. He was always available by a phone call and has been always ready to make my stay unforgettable. I know he is also renting other accommodation and I would for sure rent again from him in my next stay in South Africa. I was treated like a princess!

This is a really interesting and well located loft apartment. It is not suitable for large groups so ignore the ridiculous bad reviews from people trying to sleep 11 people here! What it does offer is plenty of space a great location (near some first rate restaurants) and good value especially out of peak period. Although not really within easy walking distance of the V and A its only a short cab ride away and well placed as mentioned above for some of Cape Towns best restaurants. The hot tub is a real bonus and to sip Cap Classique under the stars with a panoramic view of the Table is most relaxing. My partner and daughter loved it and are insisting on a return visit. If you are looking for good value accommodation that is different to 'formula' hotels I recommend this property.

We rented the "Villa on the Rocks" in Capetown for our family holiday from Manhattan Lofts. The villa was love at first sight - it really overshot our expectations. It had such a magnificent setting, crisp clean luxurous accommodation, and a house keeper that was lovely! This was our first time to the area, so we were unfamiliar with how to get around and exactly where the best spots would be. With one phone call to ask for information, the owners met up with us on our first day and were so incredibly helpful in pointing out major attractions to see and gave us plenty of ideas for planning the 6 days worth of activities. They also hooked us up with a fabulous driver that was so knowledgeable on the area. The arrangements were brilliant and it really was such a carefree and enjoyable holiday that the whole family is keen to do the same trip again - only this time more chilling by the fabulous pool and beach at the villa!

We were visiting South Africa on the occasion of our wedding anniversary. Our first stop over was cape town and we'd chosen to stay in a studio Apartment in Manhattan lofts. When we landed on Oct 18th and called Bobby from the airport, he seemed to be taken by surprise as the studio apartment was already occupied and he was expecting us the next day. However, he was quick to immediately book us into a hotel next door and see that we were not inconvenienced in any manner whatsoever. After a nights stay, we moved into a squeaky clean apartment the next day. The housekeeping was very effiecient.

The apartment is maintained superbly with nice amenities and offers a lovely view of the central business district and far away view of the V&A waterfront. Since there were hobs to cook, we cooked our own meals which was convenient. Bobby our host also called to make sure that we were doing ok. We enjoyed our stay as the place was centrally located, close to shopping centres as well the tourism office from where we started our daily exploration of the lovely city.

  • Liked — Good view of the business district and the amenities
  • Disliked — Cant really think of anything negative
