    We could not bear the noise from the night club. We paid for three nights but had to leave as the result of the noise and unsympathetic attitude of front desk staff. It is as if the new what we got ourselves to and were happy to simply get the money. It is indeed a rip-off

  • Single

    Hotel room was roomy & clean with a great view.

    This hotel is located in the nightclub district and very noisy until the early hours of the morning - very difficult for sleeping.

  • Couple
    5.8

    the ensuite bathroom closed off with a screen, so if you wanted to you could lie in the bath & watch TV or enjoy the view out the window - quite cool. the bed was HUGE & super comfortable!

    the staff weren't the friendliest; the room wasn't ready (despite us arriving after the check-in time); there was litter under the bed; the throw over the bed was stained; the breakfast-buffet only started at 07h00 (which for business people seems a bit late) & they weren't even ready for us at 07h00 (we left at 07h30 & they were still busy setting up).

    The staff working at the front and the cleaning staff were friendly and helpful !

    The only thing my wife and I found was the staff working in the restaurant never smiled and made the meal times a little depressing

  • Group of friends
    5.8

    The noise was unbareable - will definately not stay there again.

  • Single
    9.2

    Good location, very good standard of rooms. Friendly staff

    Rooms at the front of the hotel could be noisy as long St is host to bars, clubs and restaurants

  • Couple
    7.0

    Free Wifi, Free Parking & Breakfast included in price. Really good value for money compared to other hotels in the area.

    A little more attention to detail in terms of cleanliness would be a suggestion. The location is great if you enjoy the night life, however it is on a busy street so keep that in mind if you are planning to have a good nights rest.

  • Couple
    7.8

    Friendly and accommodating staff. Room was a nice size and beautiful. Where the hotel failed to meet expectations, the hotel staff were willing to assist.

    Parking out of hotel, with limited bays. Noise was expected however the ear plugs provided did not do much to drown out the sound. Probably invest in a different type of earplugs.

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    The front desk staff were amazing and very helpful. The view and location were great.

    The housekeeping staff were disappointing. There was more than one day where our room was not cleaned and we had to ask for this to be done. The sheets were not changed even once, despite needing to be. I understand the hotel uses a water saving policy which I support but I think sheets do need to be changed when dirty. The daily room cleaning was not thorough and basic amenities like soap were not replenished adequately.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Great service from reception staff, location was excellent

    Breakfast was poor, staff were friendly but service was poor. The downside of the location is the noise from the clubs outside.

  • Couple
    9.2

    Best view from a hotel room in Cape Town! And unparalleled location just in the middle of all the action.

    Service in the Asian restaurant is appalling. Eat somewhere else.

  • Couple
    10.0

    The rooms are beautiful

    The food, they really need to replace their chef

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    The rooms and the location.

    Far too noisy from the main party street in Cape Town. The party goes on all night and the sound insulation is very bad. The rooms might be "Urban Chic" but the location, reception, breakfast, etc is more of a "Urban budget backpacker". Your breakfast bacon served in a cheap Sushi restaurant...

  • Couple
    7.8

    That it was in the upper part of the street.

    Food an restaurant staff not as friendly

  • Group of friends
    4.6

    Reception staff were excellent and friendly. They couldn't have been better.

    Breakfast was very poor with sour milk and stale bread. Location doesn't feel very safe at night. Not spotless.
