Nice room and nice service A little bit noisy : the windows are too thin to block all the noise from Long Street which is noisy street at night
The hotel is well decorated but dirty, hairs in the bath etc. The location is shocking, it's extremely noisy (Sunday night clubs go till after 4am). We left after 1 night as we had no sleep, and were very disappointed with the hotel and how our problems were dealt with. Everything
After having stayed at all category og hotels for 30 years; this is the most pleasant receprion staf ever. A bit noice from the street, bars and trafic. Hope some will be better after consruction work is finished
Helpful staff Noise ++++++ - the hotel is located above a nightclub, surrounded by bars and opposite a backpackers on the only party street in capetown. Do not stay here unless you intend to party and be the last in bed each night a sunrise!
In trying to create a balance on all the above points, lack of sleep can lead to murder..... I loved every thing about the hotel, except the unassuming, hidden noise factor that takes over from 11pm -4am every day. Please sound proof the window area.
The room (602) was absolutely beautiful with the most stunning view of Table Mountain. Staff were very helpful and pleasant. The garage parking included in the price, was much appreciated and an added bonus when you compare to other hotels parking situations. windows urgently need a wash (on a more regular basis at least) and the shower door did not work (room 602) - a fault from the installers - which the hotel staff should have picked up on a walk around when building was finished. road was very noisy.
Perfect Hotel, good location. Situated on a very loud street where security is an issue. Surroundings (aka streets) are not well maintained. Be careful at night.
Contemporary style and location right in the centre. Breakfast is just superb with a special for their yogourt and cooked plates. Staff utterly friendly and accomodating. Cleaning ladies very helpfull. Being located on Long St with Bars and Restos everywhere, it is pretty noisy at night. However on the 5th floor it gets fine. Otherwise room was beautiful and overall hotel is great.
Great view to Table mountain from the hotel room.What a way to wake up!A bit noisy from the street,but with earplugs,you won't notice.Restaurants,shops,museums etc in the neigbourhood.
Great location, great design, amazing rooms.....in other words: perfect! Breakfast is poor....you don't understand if the "breakfast included in room price" means continental breakfast or all inclusive, since the staff is handing a menu with prices.....another thing, we came to have breakfast an hour before the official breakfast end time and there was almost no food available....
The hotel is conveniently located from shopping area and for takinf the hop On Hop off bus. The staff were very helpful. No porter facility. More variety for the breakfast and if the time for serving breakfast could be extended for until 1100hrs. they forgot to send a taxi for pick up at the airport.
Safety of the place TV screans are too small
Proximity to city centre and the V+A Waterfront, etc etc. No issues
The staff was very friendly and helpfull! Room was impecable and clean! Will definitely recommend it to any traveller!
Very near to our business partners.
Modern and stylish hotel. The best part of the hotel is the reception staff, extremely helpful and very friendly. They gave us good advice on day trips to Cape Point and Stellenbosch. The location is excellent, nearby a good choice of quality restaurants, Greenmarket, Long Street and the bus stop of the red/blue sightseeing bus. Breakfast is good. The room is good, but could have more closet space, especially for a longer stay. The bathroom is good, but could have more towel racks. Wifi is expensive and sometimes not working.
Central location,great for walking ever where Hotel heating system in room was hard to work.room was cold even after we had someone check it out
The helpfulness of the staff and the quality of the room we stayed in Trying to find it when arriving by car. It is very difficult to find especialy as to get to it you have to drive up a street marked no entry! Guests should be warned about this as trying to get to the hotel resulted in a very frustrating and stressful hour driving in central Cape Town
Near to the city centre and shopping.
When I got to the Hotel there was no record of the reservation that your company had made for me. Luckily they had rooms available which I needed after flying and sitting for 30 hours.
The friendly disposition of staff, especially Thembi and Zanele in restaurant. Mary from housekeeping none
Rooms are beautiful with fantastic views. Gym access was great. WiFi was TERRIBLE!!!! If you need reliable internet access, this is not the place, the signal is poor, access is difficult and limited. If this was corrected, Madela Rhodes would be a superb hotel.
Very comfortable with gym facilities The shower in the studio apartment W503 messes on the floor when taking a shower.
very comfortable child friendly had to use two lifts to get to breakfast
The location was very good and the rooms themselves were really nice. It felt like a spacious 1 bedroom/studio apartment and it was awesome to have a kitchen (although we intended to use it we didn't, the restaurants are great and affordable) The WIFI connection is very slow. This seems to be an issue in South Africa at times, but it was incredibly bad at times. It would take several minutes just to load e-mail. Also, there was no fitness center there. We were given cards to go to a local gym around the corner, we did that one day and then one of the security staff told me they had made a mistake and we weren't allowed. I asked other members at the front desk later, they had no idea of this policy change. In all, I was disappointed there was no fitness center there, felt a little misleading.
We had a huge flat with an excellent view an the table mountain. Very well situated and good price ( we were there in august 2010).
Superb quality accommodation in an ideal central location in Cape Town
Hotel was excellent,staff were very friendly an helpfull.Facillities were superb.Had a great time at the hotel
Apartment hotel room was large and fully equipped for extended stays and had an excellent location close to eateries and clubs and added plus a great view of Table Mountain.
Very convenient central location for sightseeing and shopping. Well equipped rooms - loads of space and comfortable furnishings. Good choice of places to eat nearby. Extremely helpful and courteous staff ... after check-out, we requested somewhere to store/re-pack luggage and to shower and change before a late evening flight, and we were kindly allowed this facility at no extra charge. Nothing.
Apartment with kitchen Everything nearby shuts down early, not the most inviting area to walk around after dark
Stunning building and proximity to many attractions in Cape Town, including Company Gardens, Parliament, St. George's Cathedral, Greenmarket Square, etc. Apartment-style is very suitable for family travel. En-suite bathrooms in each of the 2 bedrooms is very convenient and also private enough for the adults, as both were well separated. Guest Loo - what a luxury to have, and the hotel made no hassle of guests in the apartment with you. Staff were accommodating and kind. The state of cleanliness left much to be desired. You have all these great facilities, but when you travelling with small children, you do not want them rolling around on scuffed floors and dirty carpets, nor touching dirty chairs, etc. Throw-up from a previous stay was regurgitated by one of the many basins in the apartment, and never used again. That was disappointing. They do need some assistance with housekeeping, but I found that to be a problem in restaurants as well in Cape Town. Hope that it gets better. The facilities in this apartment do make up for the lack of attention to details, though.
The staff were very congenial and did everything possible to serve Only one complaint. The shower pressure was very poor.
The duplex apartment was furnished and equipped to a very high standard. the central location was excellent and although there were still roadworks going on right outside the hotel entrance they will be finished shortly. Nothing
the room some of the staff could be more friendly, specially at the concierge. One day when I opened the door for housekeeping the lady was standing and poking here nose, she didnt not stop when I opened either.. Pool was really small and the chairs not very fresh.
Very friendly staff, excellent central location. wrong charge to my credit card
The night manager Nathan provided excellent service The account was a bit confusing
Convenient location, secure parking, great value for money, staff were helpful and friendly No cookies on the tea trolley
The accommodation was very good - better than expected and we enjoyed the large space and facilities
Initial impressions was one of apprehension as I had to ask to be helped. Otherwise the staff was very helpful and displayed a level of professionalism Nothing
Breakfast was excellent, and the staff is amazing, particularly the concierge. Bathrooms have windows to the bedrooms above the tub... why?
Wonderful, friendly, helpful staff Dinner at the Mint restaurant was only ok
Location was excellent- staff friendly and helpfull- especially when we locked our valuables in the safe and couldn't get it open again! Bedspread was a bit dirty- no towel racks in bathrooms.
The unique style and friendliness of staff.
The staff was very nice and helpful, in addition to offering a welcome drink on the balcony facing Long St, they took our clothes to the dry-cleaner and stored it in their office for a week (while we were gone doing the Garden Route). They also changed our rooms so that we got to see a couple of the fab rooms in the hotel.
cheap and clean no
Great concept, fantastic staff with good location. Facilities very good and art work fantastic.
Being in Cape Town Rooms not clean. First room- old blood on sheets, second room, cushions on bed have not been washed, full of food& ..... No place to do makeup/ hair. only one plug socket per room. No cupboard to hang clothes in.Hotel staff was incompetent; No hot water when the hotel was fully booked. Hotel management thought we were ridiculous when we complained. Parking not private as advertised. Had to park our car at the Chris Barnardt Hospital 4 blocks away and paid. Anyone considering this hotel should immediately reconsider unless you like dirty, unpractical, low budget accommodation where you get treated like an idiot when complaining: and to add to that you need to walk 4 blocks from your parking to room afraid you might be mugged.
The fact that it was very reasonably priced right in the middle of Capetown and within easy access to the Waterfront. Loved the Jazz night too. Nothing
Stephanie - the check-in / front desk staff was very helpful in offering advice on activities to do, how to do it cheaply and the best means of getting around Cape Town. The rest of staff were also very helpful and friendly. The free breakfast was excellent quality and tasty. Location: close to the yellow bus stop on the hop on hop off tour which made it easy to get around Cape Town.
