Pros: Inexpensive and central location. Decent breakfast. Cons: No internet in rooms (very expensive one in the lobby). My room was somewhat noisy (permanent fan-like noise).

Room lighting not the best. Not may TV channels to choose from. Takes a while for hot water in the bathroom, had to run the faucet quite a while. Good breakfast buffet, much better than most for a two star hotel. Friendly, helpful staff.

It is an avarage hotel but spacious rooms, perfect location. Breakfast is for free, not really good, but sufficient. Breakfast rooms looks very modern. Is renovated!

Bedrooms facing the street are extremely noisy. The hotel, also, is plagued by cockroaches. I renewed my reservation to return at a later date, but the hotel claims thet had no record of this, and the employee I dealt with was unpleasant and unwilling to resolve the situation. To be fair, the hotel has an excellent breakfast bar, the best I experienced in South Africa! It is also one of the cheapest places to stay in Cape Town -- so if cockroaches, incomptence, and rudeness are ok with you, it is not bad value!

8.0 Very Good

If you want to be in downtown Cape Town for a good price this place is for you. The decor is very basic but O.K. The hotel seemed very secure. Be sure to confirm that the hotel has confirmed your reservations by telephone prior to arrival. They are frequently overbooked. Breakfasts are very good. They serve lunch and dinner upon request. The internet and the laundry service is overpriced. For internet walk two blocks to Long Street. An internet service in a cafe is available til midnight seven days a week for a fee that is ten times less than at the hotel. After sunset, I don't recommend walking alone for more than three or four blocks from the hotel. Use a taxi which are not cheap but not very expensive.

Good basic value. Generally clean, good filling breakfast. Bathrooms tired and a bit tatty but clean. Mattress had suffered years of one person sleeping on one side! Very good central location with no problems walking around and down to waterfront despite scaremongerers. Would recommend it as a cheap central place to stay

9.5 Outstanding!

It's a good and really cheap hotel in the City. One of the problems which an European faces there is that there are no electtic adapters available neither in the rooms nor at the reception. The second issue are the taxies: when you order one at the reception they set the price themselves and get their share.
