8/10 Very good

I requested, several times for regular coffee instead of decaf but the request was never fulfilled.

Finally a hotel just as per the pictures. This is 5star indeed. Beautiful decor. The bathroom floor just gets wet when shower, but informed reception.

4/10 Fair

When we arrived we were expecting a King or Twin Bed set-up but found a small double, apparently Expedia misrepresent the bed size for a luxury room, so watch out!! Though the property is in a beautiful converted warehouse and is a working concept of hotel and working space, it doesn't fully operate as a functioning hotel. A bit style over substance, open shower into the bedroom (not great when sharing with a friend), sink doesn't have anywhere to put handsoap or toothbrush instead constantly leaning over the toilet!! Difficult to get hold of additional towels, ladies ask way in advance of a shower, also don't be freaked out by the very noisy plumbing system, not just your room but others too!! Location is great for getting to the waterfront and also mooching to the restaurants in the cape quarter. Overall bit style over substance at the moment, if service standards increased would consider heading back as location is a winner. To note be prepared for post 7pm access through back street car park, defo not safe feeling during load shedding!

Good location - a 5 to 10min walk to V&A waterfront. Breakfast was top. Housekeeping entered our room even when we had a sign not to.

2/10 Poor

Not advisable to stay here
There is a homeless camp apposite the hotel, the people from there would approach and badger us. Made us feel very scared. Hotel states they have a lift, but technicall that is not true, there is no lift in the lobby. One must leave the hotel, walk around it and enter the adjacent building and ask them to open their lift for you which then does stop on some hotel floors. We booked a room with kitchen, but there was zero kitchen equipment. Reception said they will lend us some one request. No support offered by the hotel or the team, only a £10 voucher as a goodwill gesture for the trauma.
