I recently travelled to Cape Town and stayed at Sunsqaure for its location. I need to say a big thank you to Lebo at reception. He went out of his way to make my stay comfortable. I really appreciate it. This is a difficult time to travel and the hotel made it so easy. The room was comfy and had everything I needed. Lovely views!

A smart, comfortable hotel, but my advice would be to always get a taxi from and to this location. Some people who were on the same escorted tour as us were approached by a beggar as they got out of a taxi outside, and it turned into an attempted robbery. BEWARE! I was also victim of a street robbery opposite the main railway station. The staff at the hotel were very helpful, but I got the impression that they often had to report crimes to police on behalf of its guests. Lovely roof bar with a great view of Table Mountain. Has a pool on the roof, but it is very small. Reasonably priced food.

We stayed here for 3 nights in March 2020. The hotel is in a good location. Rooms are very spacious and well equipped with all amenities. Breakfast choices are good with a plentiful variety and eggs cooked how you like. Pancakes are also freshly made. Due to the Corona virus our flight to Mauritius was cancelled and we ended up staying an additional 2 nights before we could fly back home to the UK. Due to costs we decided to stay in the adjoining sister hotel Stay Easy. We found the Duty Manager Lebohung to be extremely helpful. He ensured that we could access the adjoining hotel from a connecting floor, gave us a discounted rate for the rooms, allowed us to have breakfast in the Sun Square hotel, provided bottled water and most importantly allowed us a late check out as our flight home was in the evening. Thank you Lebo for showing us humanity and kindness in these troubled times. The world is a better place with people like you. This hotel deserves a 5 star rating!
