Hotel is conveniently located just before the entrance to the waterfront. Rooms and bathrooms are clean.The breakfast is good with a good variety. There is a splash pool. The decor and rooms are presentable. Please note there is no early check in. Check in is 2pm. Really good value for money.

We have an excellent stay at City Lodge, centrally located in Cape Town. Space and nice rooms, excellent breakfast buffet, nice staff and friendly atmosphere. We're a group of twenty, and we all agree that it's closer to four stars than three. Great place!

Spent there 2 nights for business. The location is just perfect, near the nice Waterfront where you will have a great choice of dinner possibility. Rooms are quiet big and well organised for such type of hotel. Breakfast is just wonderful. The only problem is that the rooms are not really soundproof, so that your tranquility might be disturb by...

This was a business trip for a single day. The hotel is undergoing some renovations on the outside area and there is some construction nearby but neither were a problem. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the room was comfortable and well appointed. An early morning run was great as it was possible to run through the V&A Waterfront...

I last stayed here a few years ago. The reception team were superb and very friendly. Room was comfortable and clean. Overall I still like this hotel as it is close to everything. Breakfast alright, however could have been better. It seems to be outsourced. There is considerable noise in early morning with nearby construction. Overall though good.

Nice hotel, rooms basic without balcony, but clean and adequate. best thing about this hotel is the customer service. The receptionist, bar staff and particularly the Travel desk were all very friendly and helpful. The hotel is only a 5 minute taxi ride from the waterfront. However, be aware that there is currently buliding work going on between 7am and...

Hotel is well situated. Whether you are in town for a conference of for tourism. Just across the Conference Center and a 5 minutes walk to the nice waterfront. Funny I found the meals at the restaurant pretty great, but Front Desk ladies kept saying "we only have light meals". Until the day I left, I still could not find...

Stayed here for 4 days, and have nothing but good things to say about this hotel. Friendly staff and clean, big rooms. The breakfast was nice. They had a chef that made all kinds of eggs and sausages etc. I love such things. In the afternoons there was free lemonade in the reception. It was very refreshing after a long...
