Positive Reviews

Spectacularly Situated

Travellers found the neighbourhood to be a peaceful and semi-residential one where they felt absolutely safe. Most guests thought the hotel was ideally located for sightseeing and exploring the city, especially since some of the most popular areas can be reached on foot. Guests said that the V&A Waterfront is an easy 20-minute walk away.

Fresh and Delicious Start to the Day

Guests couldn't help but rave about the scrumptious breakfast buffet. Though overall the selection seemed simple and classic, guests appreciated the variety of continental and freshly-cooked items available. The quality and taste of the food was said to be amazing.

Like A Personal Concierge

As soon as you check in, the hotel's staff will feel more like old friends. Visitors were incredibly impressed with the high-quality hospitality by the front desk personnel. They are said to be expert-like in their recommendations and travel arrangements. Guests said that the staff visibly put in extra effort to make sure any recommendation was customised to the individual.

Negative Reviews

Tight Parking

Guests found the car lot a bit better suited for smaller cars, since the spaces are quite narrow. Even with a normal-sized car, driving into the parking lot has been a challenge.

No Lift

Guests warned that the rooms are accessible via stairs only. However, those who needed assistance with heavy luggage said they just had to ask the front desk for it.

Lack of Instructions

Quite a few guests were confused about how to turn on the air conditioning in the rooms. Many would have preferred having some sort of simple instructions to follow, rather than have to ask.
