Warning, do not stay here....recently stayed at 101 loader street, whilst out during the day we had some cash stolen from our safe, we were very fortunate that we didn't leave any of our jewellery or other valuables in the safe provided, whoever stole the money had access into the room as there was no break in, which is even more concerning.....

Though in a very good location, I would never stay here again. We were booked into the villages through our travel agent and after looking at their website which included listing the various units available, we selected a particular unit that included an upstairs deck. This was confirmed with the voucher we received before traveling. However, upon our arrival we were told that this unit was not available; instead we were given a unit on the ground floor with a dingy patio that backed onto a large parking lot and a busy street.
In addition, when we checked in, we essentially were given the keys; no one provided us information on the amenities of the unit (safe, how to use the TV, etc), how to deal with utility issues if they arose, etc. In general, the staff was not very responsive to the needs of the guests; the only exception was Dorian, a manager. Further, the housekeeping staff did not clean the apartment towards the end of the visit. Another issue for some is that there is staff available, outside of security, between 11PM and 7 AM.

Room Tip: Getting a good room depends on the reliability of reservations which is poor.

Stayed for a week in a three bed apartment. The place was big enough and had a nice view of Table Mountain. The location is excellent. However there are several things that need to be improved. There was no wifi in our apartment. To get internet we had to take a 5 min walk to the reception and even then it was so slow you could barely use it. I requested a parking space and was informed by email that the apartment had a parking space. When we arrived there was no parking space. Finally in a two week trip to South Africa this was the only place where anything was stolen from our rooms by cleaning staff. The place has a lot to work on but it has potential to be a good option

Lovely area and we had an outstanding view of Table Top Mountain. The apartment was spacious but a little basic and showing wear and tear. Welcome packs arrived after we had already been to local supermarket to buy supplies.
Huge downside was no internet in apartment,you had to trek downhill to reception to use wifi there. Not ideal and very annoying for oversea guests without local phone.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Colourful De Waterkant Village is a unique European influenced village of semi-detached quaint cottages and cobbled streets preserved from the 1760’s. Cradled between the city and the V&A Waterfront, De Waterkant Village is avant-garde, a cultural urban refuge highlighted by the abundance of restaurants, art galleries, clubs, salsa clubs, tapas bars and Parisian inspired café’s. Drawing comparisons from cultural and artistic villages from all over the world, De Waterkant embraces individuality and theatricality, echoed in the architecture and vibrancy of its residents and visitors. Walking on the beautiful sidewalks, one cannot help but be caught up in its spell, cast by the beauty of the Dutch influenced architecture, with flower boxes under the windows, sprawling balconies and rooftop decks providing exquisite views and majestic old trees that line the streets, filtering the sun selectively through their branches. This is a place that will tempt you into its fold and dare you to indulge and delight in life’s finer pleasures. ... more   less
