My daughter and I went back to Gardens Centre Apartments and this year, the experience was MUCH BETTER than last year's! The key to the apartment was on hand for us and there was no need to go chasing after someone to let us in. Having arrived on a Saturday, after hours, I was suitably impressed at this. From there...

This is a fantastic choice for solos or couples visiting Cape Town. I paid R800 per night and was given a 14th floor room with a panoramic view of Table Mountain. My room was incredibly dated, sort of a 1970s time warp, with dents and scratches everywhere, but it didn't matter - linen and towels were clean, the room was...

My family often stays here when they visit in Cape Town. The location is so central, the shopping mall downstairs is great for buying groceries for self catering (open til late), or grabbing a meal. Free parking, and easy check in. The hotels is well services. The rooms are old, and could really do with an update but that's just...

I hated my time at the place. This elderly lady at the front desk was rude and went I tried to get a refund after having to leave, their attitude was appalling. It was really noisy as the wind rattles all of the old window fittings. I had to place folded bits of card to try and cushion fittings and...

Wow this place is very affordable and made my stay in cape town very pleasant for the past 2 months! The holiday apartments are located inside the mall so everything you need is downstairs! 5minute walk into Trendy Longstreet. Everything is pretty close by and I didn't have any difficulties accessing any resources as Gardens Center is centrally located. The...

Hi Tanya Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. Our guests really do love the location, it's difficult to be more central, safe and have the convenience of an upmarket shopping centre directly below you :) We will be sure to commend Elizma and Aniki for making your stay a pleasant one. We most certainly look forward...

Reviewed 6 June 2015

The property runs on a very limited service, thus prices are lower. The positive spin is that once expectations are set you can experience entering an apartment straight from 1980 (or the 70s?) and yet functional, clean, very spacious and with a magnificent view to Table Mountain, in a building where there seems to be a mix of locals and...
