Review of La Splendida
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 01 Feb 2024via mobile
Stayed here with my partner for
One night as we went to Calabash.
The lobby area and restaurant is abslultely stunning. Great service and we loved the ambiance. I can sit in that restaurant all day long! Great food too. The gentleman -our waiter- and lady (who helped me with my phone charger) at around 15:00 - 31 Jan - were so nice and friendly! We thought the house wine were very crisp and enjoyable too!
Also the gentleman that checked us in around 13:00 on the 31st Jan. So nice and efficient.
Only positive critisism I can offer , is that I feel the room needs a bit of attention. The aircon was making a constant loud noise and not very cold.. and the TV … only two channels worked. Very bad reception too. Plugs.. I had to plug in my phone upstairs? No phone plugs next to the bed. Good stay overall though and will visit again.

Room was very spacious a d restaurant had good variety menu with very tasty meals and service.
The common areas of the hotel lacks maintenance and cleanliness. The smoking area at back of hotel parking area is not ideal for a guest as this area not hygienic, clean nor aesthetically pleasing.

We stayed at La Splendida for 4 nights. The hotel reception and lobby area is beautifully decorated with a really cool vibe. The staff were amazingly welcoming and upbeat, there’s a really nice atmosphere. The rooms are spacious and clean, although a little basic - they could do with some shelving in the bathroom and a bit of a spruce up. The location is great, with the city sightseeing bus stop right outside across the road and a lovely walk along the coast, we walked right to the V&A waterfront easily, which was about 20 mins. But Uber drivers are aplenty there and so cheap! The food at Sotana (hotel restaurant) was superb and the breakfasts included with our room were fantastic. The only downside is that we were on the first floor and our doors were just above the outside bar area, which is quite loud but usually quiet by 11/11:30. This was a great base for Cape Town exploring!

Room tip: If you prefer quieter evenings, ask for a room at the back

A warm welcome awaits at this hotel from the minute you come through the door. Nothing is too much trouble for any staff member. Bedrooms are large with extremely comfortable beds & pillows.

A charming hotel with beautiful ocean view. Cozy bar and good restaurant. Lots of ambiance on weekends, you have to make a reservation. And above all very friendly staff who also do everything possible for special requests.

Room tip: Can be a bit noisy in the weekends ... but very cosy

The room was on the side of the building so had partly sea view and part Mountain View. The staff were friendly, the food was amazing Sotano has amazing breakfasts along with the main meals. I highly recommend it, a minute walk yo the sea which is closed off as it’s a rocky beach splendid views all the same which goes with their choice in name La Splendida indeed!
