I think this is a very lovely hotel and has got a great potential if they up the game on customer service. There was no personal touch what so ever and I find most of the people working there pretty miserable and unhelpful. Don't get me wrong I enjoyed my stay at this hotel due to it's proximity to the...

Extended my stay in Cape Town , so, I had to book another hotel for the final 3nights. Chose the Marriott Protea Victoria Junction. Initial impressions were favourable. A modern looking building , walkable to the Waterfront and the many restaurants and cafes on a Main Road and the WaterKant. I arrived in the late morning. A rather sour-faced white...

This was my first trip to South Africa. Stayed for 9 nights so long enough to form a decent impression of the hotel. In terms of location it is excellent, a simple 10 minute walk down to the waterfront and perfectly safe except late at night when it is better to take a cab. Beware the cabs range wildly in...

The hotel is nice and clean. It is situated in a good area and it has a parking garage. It is a bit complicated to get the wifi going but we managed with a bit of help from the staff. Breakfast buffet is nice. We recommend to take an uber to go places or back to the hotel.

The hotel is very well located. App 10 min walk to the V&A Waterfront. There is also a free shuttle bus running once / twice a day (evening).

With the Protea's brand, price, quality and service, this hotel has a magnificent location, near the Waterfront and the center of the city. The staff is helpful, restaurant is good and the swimming pool, although small, is nice, long and good enough to swim. Good quality for the price.

I miss the former Victoria Junction, a cute boutique hotel with quirky decor and great breakfast and snacks. This has been taken over by Protea by Marriott sadly. Protea is no more than a 3 star bog standard hotel trying to be something it's not. Our Loft room didn't have a mini bar but an empty fridge; aircon was on...

Great hotel in great location. Lot's of restaurants in the area to walk to. I got a loft room on the 5th floor. It had more than enough space and felt like you were staying in an apartment. Great floor to ceiling windows that let in a lot of light. The kitchen/ dining room was super useful.
