Good location

If you are an urban traveler, not an ocean seeker, this hotel is really perfect for you. The staffs are really helpful, the location is perfect, walking distance to Long St. Close to all the Green Point bars and clubs as well. One thing, it gets a bit noisy at night as there are couple of bars and restaurants on the square.

Nightlife tip: Long walk from hotel

Take a taxi for night outings. It's safer and never need to worry about parking! It's nightmare to parking in CT general.

This is an awesome holiday place to be any time

I stayed at the HOTS for three days and nights and i the hotel is splendid, i enjoyed every minute at the hotel. I stayed in room 305 with my wife and we got the full value of our money. I would recommend your hotel to any visitor in CPT, the proximity to waterfront, table mountains, robben island trip, sea point, camps bay and the beautiful sorrounding of cape town. This is a very beautiful high class hotel, your breakfast was awesome and your staff have good customer care. Me and my wife shall make another visit again next year believe me....Mr & Mrs John Wanjohi, Nairobi, Kenya

We arrived later than planned,

We arrived later than planned, but were checked in very professionally. When they heard that we were leaving again at seven the next morning, they suggested that we went to the breakfast room at half past six and that we would be served early, as the actual time for breakfast was at seven. We then ordered toasted sandwiches from room service and were served with the most tasteful sandwiches imaginable. The potato chips that one usually gets from room service at certain hotels, gives you the idea that it was made the day before. These were fresh and crispy and we could go to bed feeling refreshed in order to get up again early the next morning. They also assisted us in using their computer to book our preferred seats on the plane for the next day. Just excellent service all round!

Internet Access not very good. Two different providers for two different parts of the site. Had to pay twice to use. One in my room. A second for the main hotel area.

very noisy hotel. even though the location is fairly handy, it remains not that safe to go out after dark. the service is also quite so so. For sure definitely, the bets asset of the hotelk is its price and restaurant (italian).
