We stayed at Protea Seapoint for our first trip to Cape Town, South Africa and enjoyed it. It’s a typical short-stay hotel which serves as a good gateway to some of the tourist attractions. It’s about 30-minutes drive from Cape Town International Airport and 10-minutes cab ride to the waterfront. The hotel is good, clean and modern. Good breakfasts with...

From fire alarms going off at least once a night...which is within their control...to a noisy active suburb...which is not...don't expect this to be the best sleep you get in a hotel. The room servicing was erratic. Some days we got our water, sugar and coffee replaced, other days we didn't. The staff were on the whole accommodating, but never...

What is the most outstanding feature is the staff. Every staff member from the reception personnel, the housekeeping, the breakfast and the shuttle staff, were all very helpful, friendly, and always had a kind word and a smile. The standard rooms are small, but very clean and comfortable. The breakfast is outstanding. The pool area is nice and has a...

this is more of a "pre-review" as I'm only due to arrive tomorrow, but I've been thoroughly frustrated by the booking process. To be fair, it's entirely unclear to me if it's the hotel's fault or booking.com's, but in any event they need to sort out the arrangements between them. I've booked thru booking.com several times with good results, and...

Stayed there 1 month ago, I like where this hotel is located, minutes to the beach, which I could see the beautiful sunset in the evening. Basically I could walk alone in the area in the afternoon as well as evening without any disturbance. Pretty safe. It is also near to many restaurants, many choices of international cuisines. Waterfront is...

Tiny tiny rooms (smaller than Paris or NYC), small beds, bathroom in the main area (not separate) - location was fine- good coffee up the street at Bootlegger cafe. Staff were poor and customer service was questionable. Toilet paper was never refilled after every room serving - annoying. Biggest gripe and warning for others; they have a parking garage underground....
