Has an excellent location

Posted Dec 21, 2017
Pros: Location is excellent. Convenient access to public transport, a mall and safe parking. Reasonable price/value for money
Cons: Most NB: better internet A renovation is needed, particularly bathroom The windows need to seal better so it's not so loud when the wind blows.
Location: Easy trip to city bowl with lots of restaurants. Walking distance to Lord Nelson Hotel, the old Labia cinema, easy to get to Cable Car and Waterfront
The best thing about this accommodation is that it is very close to two MyCiti bus routes. It's easy to get to Table Mountain and the Waterfront. The Gardens MyCiti bus stop allows one to top up the bus card there - not all stations allow this. The apartment is above a mall so it's very convenient if you need to buy something quickly or draw cash. The apartment needs a bit of a renovation but it is quite comfortable and convenient It's useful to have a kitchen. The views are fantastic. There is safe free parking in the mall if you have a car. At that height it can be extremely window and howl through the windows which can keep you awake. The internet is there, but not very good. Slow and cuts out a lot.

Value for money

Posted Dec 13, 2017
Pros: Convenience
Cons: A note of caution, that due to strong winds (gush winds can be up to 75 Km/h) the cars on roof parking could be damaged by left trolleys.
Location: Close to the City in walking distance In a Shopping mall with all basic needs covered within minutes.
Accomodation located in secure Shopping Mall with amongst others Pick'n'Pay convenience store, Woolworths Food and Hartlief Delicatessen (German Butchery + warm meals). So all basic needs can be covered within minutes. Close to the City and walking distance through Company Gardens, where parking space is limited or pay parking. The apartments are fully furnished and even a microwave available. For family with children excellent as either sleeper coach as option or additional beds can be arranged (2 children max). The room is not big, but as one is more outside than inside not a problem. The views are splendid either towards Table Mountain or versus Lion's Head/Signal Hill and City. Free parking in secure parking decks is also provided for duration of stay. Adaptors for non South African plugs or extensions should be purchased at Clicks or Pick'n'Pay (in Shopping Mall) as non standard in the rooms. I can recommend the apartments and have been visiting frequently during my holidays. The friendly reception staff (Colette/Elizma), which has customer oriented service approach, has to be mentioned. This is in my view value for money and well spend.
