Stayed here for 11 nights while out visiting my mum and dad during their holiday. We had a two bedroom apartment on a high floor. Both the bedrooms had their own bathrooms, their was a generous lounge area with a nice kitchen which had a washing machine and dishwasher. The balcony had a lovely view of the city, Signal Hill and the pool. with the sun catching the balcony for most of the day. The staff at the hotel were fantastic in getting us a cab and always greeted us on our return from a day out. We will definitely be returning to this hotel next year.

Stayed: April 2014, travelled with family

Standard 4 star hotel serviced apartments. We stayed in a 1 bed superior apt which was spacious and had everything we wanted incl. fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with bath and separate shower. Very friendly and helpful staff. Onsite car park which we used, was secure and access straight into hotel.
Centrally located with lots of cafes and restaurants within a five minute walk. Food store opposite for those who want to self cater. We just bought a few breakfast things but there was lots of prepared salads, pies, cakes etc. at a very reasonable price. So if you want to stay in central Cape Town I can recommend

There were 3 of us so we got the suite with 2 bedrooms. There were 2 full bathrooms, which was really nice and tons of space to get ready! We had a nice outdoor balcony that overlooked the city and table mountain! The ONLY down side was that we tried to use the washer and dryer and it didn't work. We tried washing the 1 load 3 times and drying it, but we could never get it to dry. It was just wasted time and effort that didn't need to happen, but luckily when we called the front desk, they washed our clothes for us and got them back to us before we had to leave!
The outdoor market is also extremely close and there were people who gave us advice on where to eat, what to do, etc. Great experience!

We had a wonderful, luxurious, spacious and very comfortable 2 bedroom suite in this hotel, with a lounge, dining area with huge table, 3 flat screen television sets, balcony with view of Table Mountain. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast in the comfort of our apartment (which was fully self-catering, but we chose delivery from Dopio Zero). Their food was very good value for money, and delivery was free of charge. We were close to the starting point for the Argus. Will stay here again, for sure!

Room Tip: We stayed on the 10th floor, I suppose that's why we did not have a noise problem. The 2 bedroom suite was huge, great value for money.

My husband and I stayed in a studio apartment on the 3rd floor over the Argus weekend. The apartment is beautiful and spotless but the building is VERY weirdly designed. The bedroom was next to the corridor and had a large window which wasn't soundproof. In fact the noise echoes through the entire building. The first night we barely slept. You can actually hear when someone opens or closes a door all the way down the passage. The hotel is also a block away from Long street so there were drunk people coming home at all hours of the night. Unfortunately we were told the hotel was full for the weekend and couldn't be moved, but luckily that first night was the worst and the rest of the time we were there we weren't disturbed too much.

Other than the noise there were a lot of pros to to place:
- good cheap parking (we had straight access to our floor from parking lot)
- beautiful, large apartments which are very clean
- full kitchen (washer/ dryer, microwave, large fridge )
- DVD player
- Good area - easy access to long street. There's a food lovers market (supermarket with cafe) across the rd a some other restaurants too.
- good value for money especially for family's who can get a 2 bedroom apartment.
- the spa is really nice - very well priced and great massages

Cons
-The wifi is ridiculously stingy - 200mb free only for 2 devices.
- the noise
