Perhaps my favorite hotel experience in 4 decades of travelling.
We spent 4 nights on our own in Cape Town following a 15 day organized tour of South Africa. The hotel room was fine, but one cannot say enough about the front desk staff and restaurant. Best steak (beef fillet) ever !! ... and service staff were very personable.
We primarily interacted with a young man at the front desk who referred to us by name and we left a glowing report with his superiors on a hotel comment card.
Location is a short 15 min walk to the VA waterfront, the hub of Cape Town.
This is an apartment-style stay in the beautiful De Waterkant Village area, smack in the middle of everything. Table Mountain and water views from the rooftop terrace. Everything is within walking or quick taxi, and the area brims with nightlife. Of course it's not a full service hotel, but staying at these properties will give you a real local experience, and the place was comfortably furnished like a local home, if not a posh hotel. I really liked it! Special kudos to the lovely reception staff, who were super friendly and helpful with questions and such. You will need soap and shampoo, as they only give you one set of hotel size bathroom products, but you can pick those up at the Spar supermarket, just a short block away (Spar is a charming supermarket, and has all kinds of other foods and goodies that you might want as well, and the shopping complex its in has other coffee shops, wine shops, restaurants, etc). As always, mind your belongings at night, especially on the block with the gas station, which is 2 blocks away....but that's just something to be aware of anywhere you might be staying in the city. Wifi available in apartments/houses for small fee.
