We really enjoyed our recent stay at this Hilton hotel. Its' very central location is unbeatable. It's within walking distance to Long Street, a short cab ride (ZAR50) to the V&A waterfront and the views of Table Mountain are simply marvelous. It was such a treat to wake up every morning and gaze at such beautiful sight.
In keeping with the Hilton brand, our room was not only spacious, it was clean, comfortable and modern with touches of luxury. The aforementioned view of Table Mountain reminds you that you are indeed in Cape Town.
I can't say enough good things about the staff of the hotel. From the moment we arrived till the minute we left, they were more than a tad helpful. Every time we returned to the hotel whether from a day of exploring or at night from dinner, we were always greeted warmly.
Breakfast was good though once again, pales in comparison to the sheer enormity of the spread at the Hilton Tokyo, Moorea and Bora Bora. However, it was on par with other Hilton properties that we've stayed at. The staff at the restaurant were equally friendly just as the rest of the hotel staff were. We did try their Indian restaurant on our first night there and it was alright (then again, I'm not a big fan of Indian cuisine so I'm hardly in a position to critique that).
The hotel has a complimentary shuttle to the V&A waterfront every hour during the day until 6PM that we really appreciated. That allowed us not only to explore the waterfront but also reach destinations like the Nelson Mandela Gateway for our trip to Robben Island as well as the helipad for our helicopter tour. While the shuttle service stops at 6PM, as mentioned above, it's only a short ZAR50 cab ride back to the hotel.
Overall, I highly recommend this hotel and we would definitely stay here again if we find ourselves back in Cape Town.
