Superb Location & Charming/Beautiful ArchitecturePosted Oct 26, 2014
Pros: Beautiful Dutch colonial style one bedroom house/apartment. Felt like being a local, and a great location.
Cons: Bathroom products for duration of stay, not just the courtesy pack they give at check-in.
Location: V&A Waterfront is an easy walk or cheap taxi, and just 4 blocks from downtown/attractions. Lots of nightlife for gay and straight scene.
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.

More than I expectedPosted Mar 20, 2014
Cons: A little funky under the sink in the kitchen.
Location: It was a safe, patrolled neighbourhood. Could walk into downtown. More nervous about walking to the V&A but that was a short taxi ride away.
I booked at de Waterkant Village rather late after hemming and hawing about prices and locations in Cape Town. I'm glad I landed on it. I expected a small studio, or a hotel room with a kitchenette. Instead I got a two floor flat/townhouse with a decent sized kitchenette, living room and walk out patio on the ground floor and an open plan king bedroom and bathroom with shower and separate soaker tub on the upper floor. The bedroom/bathroom combo would have been more than sufficient as a hotel room. The place was in pretty good nick. Good design in the bed/bath. The kitchen was basic but serviceable and more than met my needs. Included an iron and ironing board which was much more than I got at a "full service" hotel outside of Cape Town I was at for a conference earlier in the week. Overall it wasn't a high finish but it was cute, serviceable and clean. I was a little underwhelmed by the welcome from staff when I checked in in the evening. Things improved on subsequent visits to the office for internet vouchers or questions about trips to the airport. It is a little noisy in the evening with a popular bar close by. Nothing earplugs didn't solve. There were a number of good restaurants in the area so not too many cab rides were required. Also, a good grocery store in the nearby shopping mall.

Close to all the action in capetown. A nice area .Posted Jul 31, 2013
Pros: Lots of room in the inside .
Cons: A plug in one of the bedrooms for the little heater and a phone
Pleasant and very close to town and the wharf. I do think there should be a phone in the room to at least to connect with the desk.

What a great placePosted Dec 7, 2011 on Hotels.com
The hotel offers different options and we had a 3 bedrooms house. The location was amazing on one of the nicest street of CapeTown. The house was beautifully old fashion and nicely decorated, on 3 floors with a cute courtyard and a top floor roof terrace overlooking table mountain. The staff at reception was extremely polite, helpfull and friendly. We will be going back there as soon as we can.
