Hotel has a great downtown location. Close to a lot of shops and sightseeing spots. Hop on Hop Off bus office is only a couple of blocks away and is one of the best ways to see Cape Town. Restaurant is very good and a good prices. Many great restaurants are near by. Hotel has free parking near by. Staff is friendly and very helpful. Very unique, but very clean. You need to visit the Trailer Park on the roof. Price is great cost saver.

Great location, great character

Stayed for several nights when in Cape Town for work. Easy 10 minute walk straight to Convention Centre, yet in the Long Street neighborhood with much more character than the Convention Centre immediate location. Great access to restaurants, shops, Red Bus (hop on/off). Really thoughtful staff. Hotel breakfast included is hot and generous portion. We were 2 coworkers traveling together -- Grand Daddy Suite 212 perfect for us -- less expensive than 2 separate rooms, yet we had privacy of 2 bedroom spaces in the suite (one nice bathroom). Fun rooftop bar.
