From the time entering the Parliament Hotel, you could feel a great vibe. The check was smooth with no issues with the room booking and the staffs are very friendly. Entering the room the place was clean, neat, with all the facilities and more than I needed for my stay. Including having secured parking being made available. I slept very solid like being at home after a very late night. Check out went smooth with no issues at all. I had friends that also stayed at another Guest House and did not have enough towels, slept on a sofa bed, and they all did not sleep well, with the no breakfast being made available to them. For an extra R50.00 they could have had a great night sleep, great breakfast and all the facilities available. We all will be staying at the Parliament…
The Parliament is located perfectly for the City Center shops and restaurants. To the Waterfront is quite a walk but 5 minutes by car or taxi. The hotel personnel is very friendly and helpfull in all aspects: restaurants, parking, internet use, how to use the safe and so on. All-in-all a great place to stay for a visit to Capetown !

After many countries and many hotels, I have never had the pleasure of such a warm and caring staff. From making me a huge breakfast for an early start, to answering my many questions, to always finding the friendliest cabbies, the Parliament Hotel is wonderful. Easy walk to District Six, the Gardens, and the Castle. Easy cab ride to the Waterfront or Table Top.
We're from the US and were suprised that in South Africa it was difficult to find midrange hotels - you can get pricy luxury or cheap and very basic, but the Parliament was the rare middle ground. Nice bath, comfortable bed, spacious room, and full service desk. The staff was always pleasant and happy to give advice or call a cab. The location is in the middle of the Cape Town bowl, so it's just a few blocks to many of the attractions, like the National Gallery and, of course, the Parliament buildings. However, at night the area is rather deserted and it's uncomfortable walking after dark, so we were told to take cabs.
