What a find! This hotel is just perfect. The quirky decor is fantastic, the staff can't do enough for you, the breakfast is good and the location is close to everything. Our room (Studio 54) was absolutely gorgeous - very spacious and airy with a huge super comfy bed, stunning shower and fantastic decor. When we came back to the...

Stayed for a few nights in this hotel and we enjoyed our stay. The staff was really friendly and helpful. Breakfast starts at 730am but when we told them we were leaving at 7am for two days due to touring, they went ahead and accommodated our request and we had the full breakfast at 6am. Also, on the day of...

My girlfriend and I somehow settled on this cool, little movie themed, retro hotel in Cape Town. If you kind of want to gauge the vibe of Cape Town staying at a place like this on your first day gives you a feel for the city. We stayed in the 'Jackie Brown' room. So random. Only gripe was it was...

I had a one night stopover in Cape Town before catching a flight so I chose to stay at Villa Zest as it looked like it had character and I love trying out new hotels every time I'm in the city. The staff are very friendly and willing to help with anything as soon as you arrive. I was shown...

I booked this hotel while I travelling around South Africa, to be a base for our last night before travelling to the airport. It was conveniently located about less than half an hour's drive from the airport and 15 minutes walk from the V&A waterfront. The room we had (Bullet) was really comfortable (although I agree fairly small) and the...

A recent business/pleasure trip too us to Cape Town, South Africa. As we prefer a smaller, more personal hotel over a big chain hotel, we were delighted to have found this little gem nestled away in a residential area of Cape Town. A wonderful welcome by the very efficient and helpful staff eased our way into exploring the town, which,...

the Hotel is very nice and the staff is extremely kind and helpful. There are 2 small problems: the rooms are quite small and the 2 buildings around the hotel are under construction and so is quite noise.

My husband and I have spent 5 nights in this hotel as our base in Cape Town. The hotel is awesome, rather small but really special due to the 70 design really present till the details.

I spend a lot of time reading reviews before a major trip. Going to South Africa for two weeks from the U.S. is a major trip and I wanted to select the right place for our four nights in Cape Town. If (when) we return to Cape Town again, I won't even have to spend a minute looking around for...
