Staff very kind and helpful. Appropriate location for business and tourism. Cheap compared to the hotels in the same area. Wifi works as expected. some good restaurants nearby. The rooms, even if just a little old furnished, are big and comfortable.

In December cape town city centre is a buzz...
Making sure you get the right hotel or B&B is crucial to ensure your day trips is backed by some proper R&R

I chose to stay at parliament Hotel in barrack street in cape town.. This is my experience..
A clean hotel with shining floors a with a well lit passage way and always a friendly face who greets u at reception.

The bookings is a breeze and help is always on offer to take your baggage to your quaters.

As you leave reception you take a flight of stairs up to where you will get an old but not forgotten lift..

The room i stayed was on the 5th floor.. I was greeted by an clean and bright lit passage which led to my room..

Inside my living quaters was a dubble bed with clean bedding
A desk a chair a tv on a tv stand two bedlight lamps and bedside drawers. There was a cupboard with enough packing space to easily accommodate a week or 2's journey..
It had a safe deposit box. An aircon unit is fitted which would blow you cold quicker than you can say wow
The bathroom looked fresh and modern fitted with an shower toilet and wash basin finished by a stunning mirror and special holders for your toiletries.

Pro's and con's of staying at Parliament Hotel
Pro's

Friendly and polite staff, they made me feel welcome and almost like it would have been a luxury hotel.

Good breakfast, clean room. The view from the window was nothing to see though.

Good location if you want to be close to city centre.

Very clean. The staff were very helpful. Location is excellent to explore the city'so history. Freda was extremely helpful in booking our golf tee times and getting us great rates. Avoid first floor due to the noise from the busy street
