          Nice, clean hotel, convenient location in Capetown. Staff were very helpful and obliging. Could be a bit noisy at night from the pubs under the hotel. Big negative that there is no lift. Carrying heavy suitcases up flights of stairs was not ideal.More

          I believe so, but ask the hotel directly. I always ask this question myself when booking any hotel. We did not smell any cigarette smoke on the floor we stayed.

          For the hotel staff... I will be traveling with some friends to Cape Town in April. We are looking for 3 to 4 rooms for the nights of 20 April to 22/23 April. One would be a single king for the nights on 20 and 21 April. The second would be for a couple sharing a king for the same nights. The third would be for a family of 4, traveling with a 3 year old and a 6 month old. It would be for the same two nights plus plus the night of 22 April - for a total of three nights. They would be interested in the possibility of an interlocking/connecting room. That would, I presume, mean a possible 4th room. Can you please advise me on options and availability as respects the family of four? Thanks! Jim

          Hi, Jim. I'd suggest posting your question via the hotel's website as well. Maybe they check that communications channel more frequently than here. Enjoy your trip!
