It is sometimes the little things that can make a
Chose to stay at the Hotel mainly because of its proximity to the ICC where I was attending a Conference.The website showed it was very close and within walking distance. I must respectfully disagree and suggest all distances to other venues be reviewed. For me coffee in the room is most important. No milk was provided and all when it was it was far too little. All attempts to rectify this through the staff were unsuccessful. Unable to sign extras to the room unless one has a "credit" ? Not advised of this when I checked in. In fact it was confirmed that I could sign drinks etc to the room and settle bill when I left. But overall an enjoyable and comfortable stay with friendly staff.

The elevators were nice for the view. The staff was generally pleasant, a few a little pushy in hinting for tips. The free wifi is not so free after you use up the small amount they provide. It makes me think of bait and switch.

Cape Town Family Holiday
Old and dusty furniture. Took 2 days to have a third towel as we were three in the family room....Asked the staff at reception everyday but no towels arrived!!! Bath leaking after showering so water all over the place. No water to drink everyday in the room, had to ask and after the second day they placed 1 bottle of water for 3 of us!!! The windows opened completely on the 26th floor without any security, I found that quite dangerous.... The staff were very kind. i will not stay in this Hotel again when back in Cape Town. Not worth it.
