Make sure you pay the correct price for in room dinner service. They tried to overcharge me. Otherwise very clean, efficient and friendly ground floor staff and a great buffet breakfast. Very handy for the CTICC

Nice hotel in a convenient location. Excellent breakfast and comfortable rooms. Shuttle to the V&A Waterfront if needed but it's walkable as well. Not far from Cape Town centre and green market square etc.
