Hotel is in an excellent location, near plenty of bars and restaurants. A shuttle service is provided to the Waterfront. Staff are very friendly and helpful and information provided without even having to ask. I would definitely stay here again

This hotel exceeded my expectations. Great executive lounge with good selection of food! As well good room with really nice bathtub and separate shower! The central location made it easy to get around Cape Town.

This is a halaal hotel which you only discover when you get there so no pork and limited choice of alcoholic beverages. This was probably most most disappointing stay in a hilton hotel because the service really sucks and the staff seem to not really care about guests

Having previously booked this hotel last year we had no hesitation in staying again. But we have experienced two types of Hiltons on our travels, the good and the not so good. The Cape Town Hilton is expensive compared to other hotels and for that alone we had high expectations. At this hotel every area was inconsistent, nobody immediately available...

We visited this hotel in January 2017 and we are so disappointed: in fact everything here ( I mean decent requests) seems impossible as well as a simple smile on the representatives working here. When we checked in, they were completely impolite: not even a water offered in a very hot summer day after 10 hours drive to come here:...

The only five-star attribute of the Cape Town Hilton is the price. It does not live up to the usual Hilton standard. As at December 2016, the time of our stay, the hotel was being renovated. Our room was freshly upgraded - we could still smell the fresh paint. It was a reasonable size with a nice view over the...

Friends advised that the hotel was in a not so good (safe) neighborhood and that a hotel at the waterfront or at one of the beaches would be a better choice. This not true. The hotel location is very good to excellent, in the middle of everything - BoKaap, shopping center, waterfront (free hotel shuttle bus), table mountain, etc. The...

Stayed for three nights in an impressive executive suite which was very spacious. Concierge were very helpful and housekeeping excellent. Hourly shuttle bus to the waterfront is very useful. Unfortunately, the breakfast was very poor when compared to my last stay. On the three mornings we had breakfast, there were frequently no glasses or bowls. Breakfast menus were only provided...
