“Very adequate”
Reviewed 28 April 2013

Large room, good location except there are a lot of strange people in the streets at night which makes one wary of straying too far for dinner. There is a bar on the corner with free Wifi, which compensates for the fact that the hotel still wants to charge for it (progress is coming slowly in S. Africa evidently). The bar is directly opposite the cathedral where Desmond Tutu did some good things. Main park just up the road leading to many of the museums. Good walking through the park. District six and jewish museums both within walking distance and both worth visiting. Fort museum also (where you will see what a bad lot the Brits were during the S. African (Boer) war, what with concentration camps and all). Staff at hotel did the right things, but somehow the soul of customer care is missing. Restaurant in the hotel always seemed to be empty. Walking distance to shops and banks. Short taxi ride to V&A waterfront. Longer ride to table mountain. Red bus (tour around town) stops close by

Great value and spot if your going to SA. It is a close walk to everything in the heart if the city. The waterfront is a short drive and you'll be home after dinner in less than ten minutes even with traffic.

We stayed one night at the great little hotel in the very city of Cape Town.
Location is perfect very central in Cape Town and just next to Company’s gardens, there is indoor parking for only 45 Zar pr night and the rooms are very large and with cooking facilities.

My only complain about this hotel is that there is quit some street noise. We stayed there Saturday night and it felt like a party was going on in the street and you could hear cars all night long.
But if you don’t mind that I will defiantly recommend the hotel.

A second visit to the Adderley, just as good as the first. Big modern clean rooms, good food in the restaurant, helpful and friendly service at reception. Easy car parking. A good base for central CT.
Negatives? The service at breakfast could be sharpened up a bit.

At first there was a booking issue through hotels.com, but the friendly staff and manager assisted us with a smile. The hotel is very hip and trendy and the rooms are very clean. Rooms are very spacious and could almost go as a 1 bedroom apartment as opposed to hotel room. Safe parking in the parkade building behind the hotel that connects directly into the hotel. Furthermore the restaurant looks out on Adderley street with view of the Company Gardens and serves delicious meals. There is a rooftop pool as well, with a great view to the gardens and down adderley.

At first we had some difficulties finding the hotel because the entrance wasn't that obvious. Despite the modest entrance and small reception you cannot say the same about the rooms which were very spacious and modern. As a plus, they had parking spaces for a reasonable price.

We found Adderley Hotel very nice and good priced. Very well worth another visit!
