AHA Harbour Bridge Hotel & Suites
Ranked #51 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 January 2018 via mobile

This is an excellent hotel near the conference centre with delightful staff and offering apartment style accommodation which is better perhaps for long stays and families.
The rooms are well equipped and we had a fully equipped kitchen and living area.
The dining room breakfasts were adequate and evening meal service excellent . The staff were extremely friendly and helpful
However the walking access to the hotel is not easy
Great to walk along the tow path to the CITCC and to the two red yourist bus stops. But access to the V&A is not the best. . You can walk along the towpath for 20 minutes as long as it’s before 7pm but after that the gates don’t allow you access . There’s also a good water taxi every 40 minutes and if you time it right your day ticket will get you in and out during the day and perhaps back to the waterfronts for dinner but a taxi home is the only way. To be fair it’s only about £4 so not a huge outlet.
I do recommend this hotel but if I was going again for sure I’d be closer to the harbour front with easy access to all the restaurants and attractions.

This staff are very friendly and helpful. The hotel is well located for activities in Cape Town. The hotel has a shuttle that can take guests to various activities. The included breakfast had a good variety of just about anything you could think of for breakfast.

Had a lovely little studio with everything that I could need. It was comfortable and pleasant and the staff were great. It was a little noisy but the view of the water was nice. A little annoyingly the gate to the waterfront shuts at 730 which means a longer walk home around the complex. Restaurant and breakfast was good too. Highly recommend.

Absolutely lovely. Enjoyed my stay. Beautiful room with kitchen washing machine dishwasher dryer as well. Great for kids. I Hv a one yr old and it ws spacious for her and my 3 yr old niece to even play. No water issues despite the water crisis in the city. Pool ws empty due to water crisis.. Staff were excellent.. Saw to every request.breakfast ws scrumptious n serene. Views spectacular frm the room balcony. There's a canal n a ferry tht take u to v&a from the hotel. We drove tho. Literally bout 4 mins to v&a waterfront. And very central. Sea point, signal hill as well as the beautiful bo kaap are minutes away. I'd definitely recommend ths hotel..

Dear Fathima V,

We are truly pleased to see that, not only you, but the children had a great stay with us! Your recommendations are truly appreciated.

aha Harbour Bridge Hotel & Suites is a hidden gem, central to most City tourist attractions and is ideal for all travelers.

We do look forward to your next visit and hope that our water crisis will have passed by then so you can enjoy the rooftop pool.

With kind regards,

The receptionist were not friendly and they double charge me after I showed them my booking confirmation. False advertising on the website it is gorgeous rooms with beautiful views and when you get to the room you are viewing a construction site and you hear the cars from the national roads. Rather go to the more known hotels I do not recommend this hotel.

Dear Marilize Z, we are sorry to hear that you had a bad experience at our Hotel. I can assure you that the reception team is usually the friendliest in Town. As the Manager explained with regards to the Double charge. The Booking platform that you used to reserve your accommodation, brought in a New System where guests could make a payment on the Booking platform. Your booking was the first one we received with the new change and unfortunately the team only realized this after the Manager has spoken to them. Double charge was refunded to your account and we do apologise for the inconvenience caused. It was most certainly not our intention to give you a bad experience. We offer Different room options with different room views as some of our rooms over look the Canal. We do hope that you will stay with us again to show you our Hospitality at its best. We wish you a Happy Festive Holiday and a Prosperous 2018.
