Happy Rhino Hotel
Ranked #110 of 112 Hotels in Cape Town Central
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Not happy with a few things at the Happy Rhino. The hotel knew we were 3 people in a room yet they still gave us 1 towel to share. Also the guest were far too rowdy and constant noises through-out. The lift for the duration of our stay did not work and the alternate lift was a shocker to use.

The rooms are really really smalls. . The people in the hotel was very stranger and you have to pay the parking with an additional money, and that was not saying in the informations of the hotel, really bad hotel.

The place is still under construction - we checked in and checked out within an hour. Exposed electrical cables in the room and on the balcony, builders rubble, completely unsecure - the rooms have no burglar bars and there are construction workers outside your bedroom window. The one lift was broken. Sewerage smell in the bathroom. Red stains down the one wall in the bedroom. I could go on... spoke to a lady Lorraine the next day as it was a Sunday and no one could assist us with a refund. She called me to assure me they would do a full refund into my account and needless to say Iam still waiting. The owners should be embarrassed.

No towels
No floor mat outside the shower
Matchbox room (extremely small) - once you put your bags down you cant move?
No lift for 2 floors
You still have to pay R150 per night for parking despite being a paying client?
The view that was advertised and what we saw were two completely different things

I checked out of the hotel 2 hours after arriving. It was still under construction and nothing like the pictures posted. Perhaps it will eventually look like the images advertised, but for now it is false advertising.
