Wow. What an amazing hotel. So modest, fantastic location, ultra trendy, brilliant service, awesome atmosphere. Spa was amazing. Very professional and definitely highly recommend. 2 minute walk to Kloof street but the rooftop restaurant is a must!!! Everything you need at one hotel.

Date night ... you know ... dinner, maybe a show/movie and home? Not this time!! We booked a date night at Cloud 9. The photos on their website looked inviting enough, and the idea of a spa and roof top restaurant definitely appealed. On arrival, the exterior appeal of the hotel was a little underwhelming ... but then we entered. The reception with its high ceilings, live garden walls, modern decor, natural light. We were impressed. Cloud 9 went on to impress ... it’s location in the trendy Gardens area of the City Bowl means that you are on the doorstep of party central, our room offered a perfect view of the iconic Table Mountain, the room itself with all the small touches and offerings (this includes a coffee machine), and the bed ... OMW super comfortable!! We had booked a spa treatment and the therapists literally came with magic hands ... oh and there is a complimentary glass of bubbly on arrival. From there we changed and went in search of some sundowners on the roof top. Gorgeous views, coupled with the freshest sushi (and we lived in Asia for ten years so we know our sushi). From there it was on to dinner at their restaurant. We both had the steak and it was absolutely perfect. So whether it be a date night for locals or a place to stay for non-locals, do we recommend Cloud 9? Yes, we most definitely do!!

We went for pre birthday drinks. We were accommodated on the mezzanine level below the bar and above the pool/deck area. 5 outdoor stools for smokers very airy as the sliding windows allowed on the hot Sunday enough air to come in. We had drinks, bubbly and snacks. The music was lovely a little to quiet and as it was busy too little staff but I enjoyed the whole afternoon and we only left at 21h30. Hope it stays as it is and the mezzanine level gets a little more lounge atmosphere, other colours and candles or oil lamps. I loved it.

Located in the heard of Cape Town, walking distance to Restaurants and Bars. Friendly and helpful staff. I stayed in the historic portion of the hotel, with a balcony, looking out over Lions Head. This hotel gives you the opportunity to experience Cape Town at it's best. The hotel has an amazing new roof-top bar, which is stylish and quirky in the same time. If you can, try and get a Heritage Classic Room with Balcony. Doors are double glazed, so no noise at all. Great staff
