Hotel in good location.Posted Mar 6, 2014
Pros: Free car parking is great and very safe.
Hotel is in ideal location for Sea Point, Bantry Bay, Camps Bay. And for local public MYCITI mini bus service to any where in Cape Town. Very clean and great staff.

Hotel inconveniently not within shopping centre.Posted Mar 6, 2014
Pros: Clean, good service.
Location: Not right next to Gautrain, which was an inconvenience.
Safe to walk to shopping mall in daylight, but not at night. Inconvenient to pay for taxi or hotel service in order to get to mall and Guatrain.

It is just GREAT!Posted Dec 9, 2013 on Hotels.com
I spent three nights here for vacations in Cape Town and it was just fantastic. Great location, great room, great view, friendly and helpful staff, yummy breakfast. The location in Sea Point is really convenient. If you come here, do not miss it.

Great valuePosted Dec 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
The New Kings is great value, if you don't need reliable wifi. The location is outside the tourist center near the beach, and just upstairs from a shopping area with Woolworth's (groceries), post office, hair salon, boutiques, and juice/coffee/Asian dining options. The hotel staff is super friendly and helpful and the room spacious, but a little awkward with the glass shower in the corner. The only issue was the wifi, which wasn't very fast and seemed to go out every now and then. Otherwise, a great hotel at a nice price.
wonderful stayPosted Nov 21, 2013 on Hotels.com
Can thoroughly recommend this hotel. Everything was great - room, breakfast, staff.the breakfast was particularly good. When we had a problem (actually it was our son who was staying elsewhere) and had to check out early the management were very supportive and fair. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Excellent choice for Sea PointPosted Sep 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
Great hotel. New, clean rooms. Wonderful filling breakfast with plenty of choice. Location was perfect too, with supermarkets and other food options right downstairs and just along the road.

Good valuePosted Sep 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
This hotel was modern, and had some nice views-I had partial sea view. Though there is a separate toilet area-the shower is "part" of the room and doesn't afford much privacy, so keep that in mind if you are sharing the room with someone. The hotels is not very close to the waterfront or the sights. We misjudged the distance the one day & it took about an hour to walk back. A taxi to most places is about 60 Rands one way. Suggest you use the hop on hop off bus service (150 Rands for the day) if you are by yourself and want to go to multiple places. Great option. Chantelle the manger was very, very helpful. I had to make reservations at the last minute for 10-12 people, and she was able to coordinate everything quite smoothly. Additionally, she helped us with day trips so we were able to get a lot accomplished in a short period of time. Couple of improvements: the access cards to the rooms would get de-magnetized very easily & was quite frustrating. Wi-Fi is a real hassle (when it works). You need security codes which are easily provided, but for most of my 4 day stay there the Wi-Fi connection was very poor, and did not work most of the time. Real challenge if you need it for work etc.

Good locationPosted May 27, 2013
Good location, near the beach and convenient for morning jog. Few supermarkets and few shops nearby and stunning view.
