We booked for several nights from the US before traveling and made sure our reservation was changeable - and documented on paper - since our plans weren't set in stone. The place looked nice online. But when we arrived, we weren't impressed and got bad vibes. The the young man at the desk was pleasant, but wouldn't allow us to change our reservations to just the one night and said to talk to a different person the next morning. Only problem is he wouldn't allow us to check in without paying for the full multiple night reservation we had booked, which of course I was Very skeptical of. But, it was getting dark, there were guys harassing us as we came into the place, the door to the hotel was locked when we arrived, which all gave us bad vibe, and we were told to be cautious going out in this area. So we paid hoping to resolve in the morning, called an Uber and went to a very nice dinner at the waterfront. The guy in the morning called reservations who said cancellation fee was 100% which was not what we showed on our reservation papers, so he wasn't any help either. We got Taken! for a couple hundred dollars. Our room also had a leak when we turned the sink on, water flowed out into the room, and there was a bad odor in the bathroom - they did switch us to a different room due to the leak. Really feel like we were scammed and wouldn't recommend! They also had a little coffee shop attached and the fruit in the display had mold on it...yuck, even more bad vibes... I would not recommend this place. Bad management and staff "pretend" they can't help you. I was not impressed at all! There are much better places to stay!

I've just spent 21 days staying at the InnsCape on Castle and can say I was delighted with all aspects of my stay. I'm a seasoned traveler that uses hotels as somewhere to park my bags. This was perfect. The rooms were spacious, bed comfy and facilities clean and above what I expected. My stay was made perfect by the friendliness , interest and attentiveness from everyone. Nothing seemed too much trouble and if I asked for anything, tea, milk, etc., it was there on my return. Typically, I was out the door at 9am and didn't return until 9pm each day where everyone, from the morning staff through to the night managers always welcomed me as a friend. A particular shout out goes to Victor, Ruskda and Kevin (Please forgive my spelling of your names) for all their help, ideas, suggestion's and conversations about everything from English football, through Cape Town vs English weather, to family issues big and small. I appreciated and enjoyed everyone. So, too all the people who have provided a poor review I would say. If you want a 5 star, concierge serviced hotel suite with fine dining. This is not your place. However, if you are a weary traveler, away from home in difficult circumstances, missing their family and who just wants a friendly chat, a cup of coffee and a laugh. Then this is the place for you. Thoroughly recommended

InnsCape on Castle is a quite trashy hotel actually, the place is in the CBD which is a good getaway to get around and also tries to maintain an industrial feeling in its rooms. The receptionists here really need some more training as its very antisocial and also can be much more polite (remember phones away you severing costumers), and the rooms smell to the food they make downstairs. Also, in Jan 2021 I felt that some of the guests do quarantine at this hotel, having their food outside/used plates outside the room at the common corridors which is not very healthy I believe so. Also, no breakfast here too, and you also do not have much privacy as the receptionist have to open the door and you cannot work from downstairs in curfew times. Price was 40/EUR night, where you can honestly find better in CPT.

This hotel is located at the comercial and service area of the town. At night there are many options for food, drink and parties. Close to the Kloof Street at Gardens, Greenpoint neighborhood and the V&A as well. Challenging atmosphere if you walk around the hotel area at night as in any big downtown area around the world.

We had booked a hotel room through Bookings.com and got a confirmation, we was very happy to enjoy Cape Town during our honeymoon. Since we knew that our flight was coming in late almost around midnight we emailed the hotel directly letting them know we will have a late check in. We did not get a response which we first of all found very strange. Now we understand why, they had in there system to overbook this hotel to make sure to fill their other hotels. When we arrive around 11:30 PM the people in the reception acted very strange and very unwelcoming. We understood why just a couple minutes later when they told us that they didn’t have a room for us because the hotel was fully booked and that they were sending us to another hotel. Not only had we traveled over 15 h and been up since 4 AM that morning. It is outrageous to treat your guest in this matter, sending them to a totally different hotel they have not chosen, done no research, in a bad area that did not feel safe and the standard of the hotel was even worse and the price was less. I can’t believe this was the start of our honeymoon and we were extremely disappointed to have such a welcoming. After this we had to find a hotel room in middle of the night in sometimes unsafe Cape town with a lot of luggage. Same thing happened to an Austrian couple standing in cue after us to the reception.
