        Staff really helpful. Hotel is lovely but I didn't have much time to enjoy the facilities.

        I spent 5 nights at the Southern Sun Waterfront Hotel in Cape Town from 14 - 19 April 2015 whilst attending the World Travel Market Africa exhibition at Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC). Having booked online literally 2 nights prior to check-in, the $100 nightly rate I paid provided me one of the best 'value for money' deals I have ever enjoyed. And I have to say I could have got the room for even less if I had not been apprehensive about getting my Visa. The location does not leave anything to be desired. The Convention Centre is a 4 minute walk, the famed although overpriced V&A Waterfront is a 5 minute (complimentary) shuttle ride away and the amazing Long Street with its dozens of shops, restaurants and bars is a 6-8 minute taxi ride away. If sightseeing, the City Sightseeing Red & Blue route stops are along and across the street from CTICC. There is a very nice and cozy pizzeria and a café across the street alongside a Wines & Spirits store. The hotel's real gems are the staff who are warm and cheerful at all times. It was a refreshing change to be escorted to your breakfast table every morning and the breakfast buffet is sufficient to see you through the day with a wide range of items such as 10-12 freshly cut fruits, yoghurt, crumbly decadent croissants and eggs-to-order to name a few. The short-order cook remembered how I like my eggs on my 2nd morning there. Where do you see that in a 4-star hotel these days?! Room and bathroom are spacious. Room Service is quick and efficient. Food presentation is very good and rates are very competitive. All in all, highly recommended.

        If I had to find a fault, it would be slow and limited internet which is an every day necessity these days rather than a luxury.

        The hair dryer was not working very well. The bathroom amenities were not replaced everyday. It was a bit noisy (from other rooms and from outside)

        gute Lage um die Innenstadt zu besuchen, sichere Umgebung, ideal für Kongressbesuche

        Negative review

        sehr verkehrsreiche Straßen, etwas komplizierter Spazierweg zur Waterfront. Die Zimmereinrichtung ist schon sehr in die Jahre gekommen.

        All the staff were very friendly and professional. The shuttle bus to the waterfront was very convenient. We only had breakfast which was superb. We really enjoyed our stay. Thank you

        A fantastic hotel with helpful staff, especially the porters. The breakfast was amazing - i personally tried everything and it was all very light. Location is also great.

        We had booked for 3 and the room had 2 double beds in it. Unfortunately this made the room quite cramped for 3 people. It had also only been catered for 2 people, with only 2 sets of towels and glasses. This was remedied once we contacted Reception. We were on the 14th floor (note there is no 13th floor!) and there was noise from what we think were air con units on the roof.

        Very clean and well maintained. Staff couldn't do more. They were always ready to help with a smile. Well done guys keep it up. Hotel is in a very good location.

        Carpark is chargable even for residents. It would have been nice if it was free of charge.
