Good 6.0
Great location, otherwise okay
We chose the hotel for the location and that is the point it fulfills completely, it's mere minutes safely walking to the Waterfront with it's shops and restaurants. The shower was warm, not hot and as there is no door you get the bathroom partly wet. The double bed was definitely on the small side, just about wide enough for 2 people, I would call it a twin bed. I have stayed in better Protea's but as I said, you can't beat the location.

Perfectly positioned and comfortable

Very good 8.0
Great location fairly basic room
It is in a really great location across the road from the prestigious one & only hotel and right near the aquarium and within a 5 mins walk of the waterfront. The building is part of the old Cape Town prison so quite interesting and also combines with student use in the main old prison building which is a bit strange for a hotel but nice in a way. The 2 bedroom unit itself we stayed in was small and was clearly set out to be a typical student style bedroom/s with tiny bathroom. All was ok but a bit tired but then again the cost was not high considering the location especially.

Great location but small beds
A few problems but all followed up by their management team.

Great location
Great location, nice room. Didn’t realise it used to be old jail until booked in 😊 Appreciate that it was probably busiest time of the year (checked in 26th December), but felt that more info could have been offered by staff about amenities they offered & in relation to surrounding areas.
