    Fabulous 8,6 From 76 reviews

    Good 6,0
    Tiny room but great location
    The room was teeny tiny - completely different from the pictures of the rooms featured on the website. We had two large suitcases for a four night stay and had nowhere to put them (couldn't even put them under the bed as it was completely solid underneath). The bed was comfy and there was a decent sized flat screened TV - however, the TV was pointless as there was literally only one DSTV channel available to watch. On the plus side, the hotel staff did allow us to check in earlier as our flights arrived long before 3pm. It was also kept clean and a mini bar fridge is also available, although a kettle and some tea and coffee would not have gone amiss. There are two restaurants on site and the weekend revellers were noisy at times so not great if you're a very light sleeper (which luckily I'm not). On a more positive note, the location of the hotel was superb. It was close enough to walk to Cape Town Stadium, as well as the vibey Long and Kloof Streets. It's also a short Uber ride away from the V&A and Lions Head.

    Beautiful rooms. But the pool should be only for guests

    Exceptional 10,0
    The hotel is pretty nice. The rooms are a bit small but they have everything you need. I had a room with a porch which was wonderful. Water was a bit finicky in my room. I had to leave the water running for a while to get hot water (which in Cape Town, that feels wrong). Water was cut off randomly during one day of my 3 day stay. It was unclear why but it was fixed by the evening. Other than that my stay was fine. The food at the hotel is very good.

    Boutique is the proper word, in a great way
    The manager and staff were very nice and accommodating. I arrived early and they let me get in the room as soon as it was done, let me borrow an umbrella when it was supposed to rain, and helped me with transfer to the airport. I liked the atmosphere of the place. The only thing about my room was that it was on a second floor without an elevator, so it is a bit of a hassle to get your luggage up there. My bag wasn't heavy, so I didn't mind, just to let others know.
