The apartment was clean and lovely but the lifts had a mind of their own and we had to walk down 17 floors with suitcases via the fire exit on our departure with no help from the staff. Several people were trapped in lifts and none of the staff seemed to care. Avoid for that reason only as I'd hate...

What a shoddy and dirty hotel! Took me two hours to get settled in a room on the evening of the 28th. Room 1: relocated because of the road works below which management professed not knowing about...even though there's an information letter on the reception desk for all to see. Room 2: Great surprise when I walked in and there...

I went there with my parents last year for a holiday in Capetown. The Hotel is centrally located, just a 5 minute drive from V&A waterfront. Staff were friendly and willing to help at any given time. Rooms were very well maintained, kitchenette that had good quality equipment, lounge had nice furniture with a huge flat screen tv. we took...

A group of us staying at the Hotel were very excited to stay at the Hotel for 4 days for the Argus as the web and pics were great...but let me tell you...it was so so dirty, noisy and there was terrible service from management. We booked in as two couples per unit, we were told that each room had...

Thank you for your feedback. To anyone reading this listing, I can only imagine how this review will affect your decision to stay at VIP Living. While I cant argue that we've had problems with our housekeeping department, I have to apologize on behalf of the management company,which is Living Hotels. This isn't at all the standard or service we...

Good afternoon I recently tried to stay @ the property listed in the subject line above but unfortunately had to cxl on arrival due to lack of proper service and a general disappointment.

Thank you for the review! Management has profusely apologized to this guest in question. Our procedures were followed and our reception were under the impression that they had handled it correctly. However, for whatever reason, the lack of compassion for the guest and the service ethic was not reflective of the service we had asked for from our staff. As...

Following a genuine misunderstanding my car was clamped in the hotel basement. Parking bay markings are not at all clear and release fee is R250 or about US$40.. Hotel staff were quick to walk away from a problem that they were partially responsible for... Once again poor service defines a South African Hotel.. After all the aggravation and time wasted...

3 of us shared a 2 bedroom unit which was perfect. The bedrooms were lovely as were the bathrooms and very spacious. This place was made even better by the Food Lovers Market downstairs which provided some great breakfasts. The apartment was serviced daily and Reception were also very helpful organising taxis.

This place is excellent value, but for a reason. It's in a dodgey area. I was mugged outside the apartments and there was no police response, and absolutely nobody that I had previously asked was willing to admit there was a problem in the area. The muggers simply walked away, laughing because they knew that nobody would come. When I...

We were booked into the Icon Apartments by our UK Cruise Agent. Upon docking in Cape Town,we didn't know where VIP ICON was located, or what the amenities were. OK it lies in the commercial district of Cape Town, and 25 minutes walk to the V&A Waterfront - but don't let that put you off. Taxis abound. The biggest shock...
