The Whale Watchers had a lovely stay.Posted Mar 23, 2015 on Hotels
The only thing I would like improved is a mirror closer to the power-point where the hairdryer is. Thank you for a lovely, clean stay.

Spacious apartmentPosted Oct 2, 2014 on Hotels
We had a good stay, we were only lacking glassware and crockery. Beds were comfortable and it was relatively clean.

Clean and convenient but very overpricedPosted Jan 12, 2013
Pros: Location, location, location
Location: Urban, but safe environment
The location of these self-catering apartments is very central - 20 minutes taxi ride to the Waterfront, CBD, etc. There's also the convenience of having a huge mall with good shopping, restaurants, movie theaters and grocery stores right next door to the apartment building. Also very important for naive visitors to South Africa like us, the area outside the building and the walkway leading to the mall, etc. feel very safe and we did not hesitate to be outside in this area till fairly late at night. The apartments are very overpriced - Unlike Island Club apartments, Manhattan Suites chooses to charge much more for a group of 4 vs. a group of 2. The apartment itself is a nice affair. Check out the Moyo restaurant at the waterfront for a nice dining experience. Also, Adis restaurant in the CBD has some of the best Ethiopian food I've tasted. Take the blue/red doubledecker buses on your first day to get oriented to the city. The bus goes up to the Table mountain cable station (A thrilling ride - a double decker bus on a curvy hilly road - Definitely worth it!) Other tips: I did not want to experience driving on the other side of the road, so, for visits to the vineyards, Cape of Good Hope, etc. so I hired a car+driver for R1500 a day. Pricey but I thought it was well worth it for the convenience and much cheaper overall for a group of 4 than some of the tours listed.

GOOD PROPERTY, GOOD LOCATION, LOUSY SERVICEPosted Dec 10, 2012
Pros: THE PROPERTY'S LOCATION NEAR CANAL WALK SHOPPING CENTER.
Cons: THE ABSOLUTELY APPALLING CUSTOMER SERVICE
Location: THE PROPERTY IS IN A GOOD LOCATION NEXT DOOR TO ONE OF CAPE TOWN'S MAJOR SHOPPING CENTERS.
GUEST SERVICE AT THIS PROPERTY IS AMONG THE WORST I'VE EXPERIENCED ANYWHERE. FRONT DESK STAFF DID NOT PROVIDE ANY ASSISTANCE REGARDING KEY ISSUES SUCH AS PARKING ACCESS, LUGGAGE ASSISTANCE, ETC. FRONT DESK STAFF WERE ACTUALLY QUITE RUDE AND SIMPLY SAT AROUND, EXPECTING GUESTS TO FEND FOR THEMSELVES IN AN APARTMENT-HOTEL THAT WOULD REQUIRE STAFF TO PROVIDE GUESTS' ASSISTANCE & DIRECTION. THE HOUSEKEEPING STAFF ENTERED THE APARTMENT WITHOUT EVEN KNOCKING!

Manhattan Suites close to Canalwalk shoppingPosted Oct 21, 2011 on Hotels
This is a perfect location for any visit to Cape Town as the Apartments have quick access to the Hghwy into Cape Town(less than 10min) and is wonderfully close to the Canal Walk shopping centre with night shopping till 9pm and loads of restaurants. Very safe to walk at night and just a perfect spot to stay. Apartments are new and plush.

Gutes Frühstück, gut eingerichtet. Sauberes Zimmer und guter Zimmerservice. Internet etwas teuer. Ideal wenn geschäftliche Konferenzen um das Century Village sind (Crystal Towers oder ähnlich). Transport ins Stadtzentrum etwas umständlich.
