Kanske för den yngre generationen - party-goers?Posted Feb 16, 2015 on Hotels
Intressant hotell, bra läge. God frukost, serveras fram till lunch.Trevlig personal, delvis underbar, men servicen var lite 'hit and miss' ibland. Ultra-modern inredningen lite opraktisk ibland - t.ex svårt t.ex duscha utan att blöta ner hela badrummet. Och vem tycker att det är trevligt med 'on-show toilets'?

Fun, retro-theme hotel - central and safePosted Feb 16, 2015
Pros: Lovely, bright retro (70s) theme, big rooms, huge bed, comfy, friendly staff, great breakfast, limited off-street parking, just 7 rooms
Cons: There was no mattress protector on the bed.
Location: V&A Waterfront shopping is within walking distance and we drove to Camps Bay for dinner, just 15 minutes away. Very easy to access from the airport.
We made a last minute booking to Villa Zest and the service, friendliness of the staff and quality of the room were all excellent. We arrived a little early and were greeted with smiles - nothing was too much to ask - our luggage was stored for us until the check-in time when it was moved to our room. Meanwhile we had excellent directions to the V&A waterfront, tips on safety, a parking space and we could get on and enjoy our day in Cape Town. We didn't use the pool or take advantage of the complimentary drinks as we has such a short stay but we had everything we needed in the room (hairdryer, coffee making facilities, lovely bathroom, etc.) and the breakfast was delicious. We would definitely book again.

Lovely Staff/breakfastPosted Sep 7, 2014 on Hotels
I am in the armed forces and just needed to get away for a few day i looked online and found this gem of a hotel. The staff were very friendly and accomadating. The breakfast was outstanding. The sorrounding area is a mixture of some nice some looks bad with beds and rubbish outside houses. The hotel was originally hard to find as out the way a little and the sign is clear on a white wall so hard to see. i would certainly go back in a heartbeat with my family and as the discription says its only 10 mins to walk to V&A, last point WIFI was a bonus for me and there was nowhere in the hotel that you couldnt get good wifi.

Stylish and beautiful, but uncomfortably smallPosted Aug 21, 2014 on Hotels
The location's great, the staff very friendly and helpful, and breakfast was delicious. The place is beautifully appointed and furnished. Unfortunately we were VERY disappointed with the size and comfort of our "entry level" room: we found it to be uncomfortably small. The bed was covered with (very stylish) cushions, which needed to be shifted on the floor, making it almost impossible to walk around, especially at night, but daytime as well. The small table (and one chair only, one of us had nowhere to sit bar the bed, since there was no room for a small armchair) was completely covered with a tray with kettle, cups, tea bags etc, so we had to place the lot in the wardrobe, to make room for the computer. Unfortunately there was nowhere to place our luggage but the floor. Also, the bathroom was uncomfortably small, so small that there was no room for towel racks (the stainless steel freestanding towel rack was on the bedroom floor, too!), and the very stylish shower small and awkward to use. When we came back to Cape Town for one extra night a few days later we chose to stay in a different guest house, less beautifully appointed but with bigger rooms and bathrooms. Ah, the joy at the comfort of all that desperately needed space! On a brighter note, Villa Zest has the friendliest and most helpful staff you could ever wish for. Maybe the superior, more expensive rooms are bigger and more comfortable, but we cannot comment on that.

Great, surprising, hotelPosted Aug 11, 2014 on Hotels
A wonderful little hotel. Although the location is not 'prime' it is really convenient for a short (reliable) taxi ride to the Waterfront. The hotel itself is really surprising - once inside, it is very modern, exceptionally clean, roomy, and the service is good. Slight background noise from a nearby road - but I would stay again if I get the chance.

Ausgezeichnetes Hotel in Nähe des StadtzentrumsPosted Jul 20, 2014
Pros: Server-/WLAN-Probleme nach einem externen Stromausfall wurden raschest möglich unter Hinzuziehung eines Experten behoben.
Location: Wegen der Nähe zum Stadtzentrum und zur Waterfront zahlreiche Attraktionen gut erreichbar.
Äußerst zuvorkommendes Personal sowie eine Eigentümerin, die sich täglich persönlich um ihre Gäste kümmert.
