This apartment complex had very many positives. The location is perfect, the pool is fantastic, the gym is VERY well decked out. The two bedroom apartment is very spacious, very well decked out and was cleaned daily meticulously. Master bedroom is airconditioned and has a very large ensuite with a huge bath. The second bedroom is a little smaller but still fine. You also get a free parking pay, which again is GREAT!

The only few downsides I can point out is that it does say that they offer free wifi, however on checkin they tell you that you only get a voucher for 500mb then must pay 100 rand for each additional 500mb, so it is not technically true that it includes internet. They offer free wifi in the lobby however this is not really convenient, rather something you would do in a hostel. Also the master bedroom has no power outlet at all, so if you wish to charge your phone you must do it from the lounge, or do as i did and use your laptop to charge your phone. Also the master bedroom is very bright with no block out blinds, the light streams in early so eye shades might be an idea. Lastly, the second bedroom (although does have a power socket) is quite loud as it faces the inner complex which echoes with every door that shuts. If you are a light sleeper you may find it hard to sleep in.

Room Tip: Higher floors for better views. No power in the master bedroom for charging so think ahead

Hello

Thanks for your review and all the positive comments.

We offer 500MB free Wi-Fi to use in the apartment and access to unlimited Wi-Fi in the business lounge like other large hotel groups.

We do not advertise our properties as offering free Wi-Fi, but as providing "Wi-Fi access in each apartment".

We certainly hope you will stay with us in Icon again and if you have any questions or are uncertain about the services offered to guests you are welcome to contact us.

Kind regards

The location was so convenient, staff were friendly and the gym and pool facility was a bonus. The kitchen may need a few more utensils but we coped well with what was available for self catering. There was also a lovely snipet view of the Table Mountain from our room.

good location , spacious apartment ,
the decoration is somewhat unpersonnal .
the swimming pool area is not very welcoming and the environment is quite noisy
There is a food market on the gound level which is good since there is no shopping area close to the building (walking distance).

My friend and I just got back from a wine tasting weekend in CT. We stayed at the Icon on the 20th and 21st February 2015. Bad experiences have made me apprehensive about trying out a place that i have never been to before - sometimes what you see in the pictures on the website is nothing like the actual hotel/apartment. However, the Icon did not disappoint in anyway. I was so impressed iwth the service at the front desk, efficient, welcoming and friendly. The apartment building itself is secure - which gave me peace of mind given that we were two females travelling alone. The room was incredible - clean, neat, modern and comfortable - we stayed in room 1101 which had beautiful views of the mountains. The bathroom was lovely - massive shower and oh so clean and neat. We used the hop on hop off bus, safe and beautiful walk to Waterfront - we also went to Long Street, just up the road from where the icon is - so all in all- ideal location. I would definitely stay here again for my next trip to CT.
