We stayed at the Capetonian for 2 nights after wedding before leaving the country on honeymoon. The size of the room was average. We didn't feel anything special about it given we had just gotten married! The room was so hot and stuffy, and the air cons make awful noises that makes it a bit hard to sleep. The balcony...

Stayed here for my honeymoon in December 2011.... Knowing that we were a honeymoon couple there was nothing special done by the staff.... The room given to us was very average and with the view of the parking lot.... There are some shops behind the hotel where you can buy some basic amenities.... The good parts were that there is...

The only advantage of this hotel is that it is near to the conventional center where we were exhibiting. The hotel is old, very old room ... the hotel is still living the mid 80's

Some of the rooms have nice view to the Table Mountains, some - to the rear of the parking lot. Very good air condition, spacious rooms. The compressor of the A/C is located on the small terrace, making it useless. Dinner on 3 consecutive nights was identical - even the soup... Well located near the waterfront and convention center

I stayed at this hotel as part of a trip to the World Cup, so was obviously subject to the price hikes that happened during the tournament. The location was superb, with just a 5 minute walk to the busy Waterfront but also a 5 minute walk into central Cape Town and the cultural sights. A no frills business hotel...

We came here for the World Cup along with our very active one-year-old. First of all, we found the location to be quite central. There was even the big red touring double-decker bus station right behind the hotel. Took very little time to travel by public transport or taxi to the V&A Waterfront or to the Green Point Stadium. The...

We staye here during the world cup, the staff were very friendly and helpful, security was very good, rooms are comfortable but not stunning 4 star, food good, if not plentiful....I would say it is ideal for business or a base for sight seeing, not a family "chilling" out sort of place--No Pool etc.. but can't complain, have stayed in...
