I traveled to Cape Town in early February for some meetings andI stayed at the Southern Sun Cape Sun. The check in process is smooth as is the central location. The staff always go out of their way to help.

Indeed i do find the experience I had very tasteful and satisfying in the Southern Sun Cape Sun hotel; this minus for the issue of being refused in room breakfast because it was not indicated by my travel agent when the booking was made
