Pleasant hotel, good location. Unfortunately 7 guests were checked into a 2 person room below us (that we could count) - this was incredibly noisy.

The location is fantastic! A very short walk to the aquarium, the hop on hop off bus terminal and the main area in V&A Waterfront where there are many restaurants to choose from. The hotel buildings co-locate with the University’s business school and the whole site used to be a prison. The room was clean and the staff were very polite. I would definitely use this hotel again when I return to Cape Town.

We liked this hotel for its location and history. It is within walking distance from the V&A shopping area and wharf. Also, it’s right across the street from the Two Oceans Aquarium.
