Squeaky bed & small room
Our 1st day was short of us checking out The room (606) was too small and the bed was small and squeaking with each turn the whole night. Horrible 4 star experience. The room was changed after we complained. Super horrible but the 2nd room was better.

Excellent stay with confort.
Hotel is excellent, I noted some small maintenance problems at my floor, the 8th floor. The room service was very fast and efficient. The bar and restaurant service excellent. Concierge very helpful and professional. At the reception, check in and check out was fast and professional nevertheless the personnel could use some smiles. Breakfast very well organised with lots of personnel ready to help.

Wonderful
Raul, ie6 night trip
Very good 8,0
This hotel overall was great. I think it was a good value for what I paid. It is very centrally located and the complementary shuttle to the V&A Waterfront was excellent. The breakfast was fantastic, there was a wide variety of food and beverages. The concierge service was great, they were a great help with everything from transportation to booking tours. The only thing that could have been just a little better was housekeeping services. On multiple occasions I had to individually request bathroom towels, face towels, shower gel, toilet tissue and an iron and ironing board. Those requests were made after my room was serviced for the day. Overall Cape Town is an amazing city, with very friendly and humorous people.
