    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.

    Great spot!
    Great boutique hotel in an amazing location! Close to tons of food, drinks, and easy access to major tourist destinations. Really cool roof top bar with views of table mountain. Highly recommend!

    A Real Boutique Hotel
    A true boutique hotel. The physical space and design was unique and special, but functional and comfortable. The entire staff made you feel like special guest. The restaurant menu was limited, but we'll prepared and presented. The piano bar each evening was warm and intimate. The location was perfect for dining and unique shopping opportunities. In addition, it is within easy walking distance of the VA Waterfront. Due to the various elevations in the property, those that are physically challenged, might opt for a different space.

    Good location and friendly service!
    Lovely boutique hotel in a good area. Not far from the V&A port. It’s not quite walking distance to the wharf but very close. We used Uber to get there within minutes and it was only 2.34usd! The rooms are modern and cool. Great air conditioning, comfy bed and we had our own rooftop balcony. It is a little loud because our room (4) is in the hallway up to the rooftop bar. The staff was amazing. Super friendly and helpful. They have live music many nights, a restaurant and a front porch for sipping cocktails. Loved it and would go back!
