This is a nice hotel with decent services and very nice staff. The location is very good and the main area of the Cape Town waterfront is only a 10minute walk away. However the room we stayed in was quite standard and wasn't very luxurious. There was a make shift shutter between the bedroom and toilet which seemed strange. Also the room service was handled by an outside third party and was disappointing. It was an okay stay but could have been better.

They gave us an excellent service , thanks again to the staff especially housekeepes and kitchen staff. They where really friendly and accommodative.

Housekeepes came everyday to clean and sanitizer, kitchen staff especially on the 25 they made us feel as if we where at home with our beloved ones. I really enjoyed the buffet. It's a pity they where full booked for new year I could have spend my new there. I love that hotel it's the only one I use when I'm in cape town because of their great service.

Lovely hotel close to City Centre & Waterfront. Close to bus transport. Safe to walk around outside day & night. Staff were all very friendly. Rooms were clean, no issues at all. Kettle in room with daily refils of tea & coffee. Hotel has 3 breakfast options, and the basic breakfast with fruit, cereal, yogurt, juice, tea & coffee is reasonable at R60 per person. No refrigerators in rooms though.

I had a very pleasant stay at the CityLodge V&A....albeit for one night only. It's conveniently located and easily within walking distance from the main V&A precinct. It offers excellent value for money and I liked the innovative use of technology to contribute to a more 'green' offering which is important to me personally. O yes I loved the views from my balcony to room, highly recommended.

The hotel is in an excellent location and it’s easy to walk to bars and restaurants even at night
Staff were excellent and after a long overnight flight they let us check in early
Rooms are big and air conditioned. Generators work well for load shedding .
Breakfast great
Pool very small but ok for a dip to cool down
Excellent value for money - quality at a good price

Room is comfortable, clean and neat. Room doesn't have a bar fridge. The hotel is within walking distance from the V&A Waterfront. The area is quiet and the rooms to the rear has no road traffic noise. Breakfast is excellent. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner. Dinner is from a menu and there are a variety to choose from. The number of items on the menu is limited, but there is are a number of first class restaurants within walking distance.

If you're visiting Cape Town, you won't be spending much time in your hotel room. For a comfortable, clean room with a good (although small) bathroom, this is your place. Very closely located to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront (about a 15 minute walk), about 20 minutes from the airport and a 2 minute walk to the Cape Town Convention Centre.

A hearty breakfast is served. Staff extremely attentive and professional.

My only gripe would be their "travel desk". We tried to do a simple on-line check in for our return flight which involved me hanging over the counter and personally tapping on the laptop of the staff member who was clearly clueless.

But if you want value for money and a great location. City Lodge V&A Waterfront is a gem. Well done , team !!! We'll be back.

Just Spent 13 nights here having gone to Cape Town to watch the Cricket (we won) From the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out the people were so friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The rooms were excellent and the cleanliness was fantastic. We enjoyed breakfasts and some meals in the hotel as well as sampling the bar on many occasions. We used the laundry service. The Girls who looked after us in the bar and restaurant were brilliant and could not do enough for us , (they are all my Favourites) Thank you to all for making my Holiday in Your city fantastic, Hope to see you again some time. ( Hotel Manager please tell the Girls they are my favourite) a little joke we had together Mr and Mrs Collins ( they wouldn't call me Graham no matter how many times I asked them) great professionals please give them a bonus

Great location for walking/visiting both the Waterfront and City Centre as well as just sitting by the canal and watching paddleboarders, kayaking etc. The staff is extremely friendly, the only problem was that there was no fridge in the room, and I didn't like my room view. I also recommend them for having checking out time at 11:00 am, which allowed me to have breakfast in no rush. The restaurant had amazing tasty food, the chef understands the brief. Would definitely come back.

We stayed for 1 night and the staff was very friendly even though it was very busy. Breakfast is waht is expected, but very expensive.
No "free" water in room or not having a small fridge in the room was a let down.
Cleaning staff opened our door without knocking - this is not professional at all.

The reception at the hotel is always willing to assist. The cost of the taxi I cannot answer you. Uber would be your best bet.

Not to far although if walking you do cross extremely busy roads with 3 to 4 lanes of traffic, call an Uber very cheap
