We checked in here and whilst the staff were helpful and tried to find an alternative room for us on a lower floor instead of the second floor due to my wife being temporarily on crutches due to what was stated as 'overbooking' by a web booking site made this impossible. The hotel has a great location and is a 3 minute walk from the waterfront and all it's shops and restaurants. The exec rooms were very large, comfortable beds and good facilities. We did not use the restaurant here but it looked... Read more

My family and I stayed here from 2-5 January 2017. It was a good time to go to Cape Town as everyone else is going back home after the holidays and getting prepared to go back to school. We arrived at the reception area just after check in time and were all really excited to get to our rooms as it had been quite an eventful morning at the airport. I was a little disappointed with the wait as we had already prepaid for the stay. We booked through an agent who, to my surprise, did not inform us ... Read more

A restored building, now in the form of a bizarre combination of business school and hotel, that a century ago used to be a prision. Really quiet and located above the Waterfront: a lovely and posh area full of restaurants and tourist attractions. Rooms are spacious and breakfast is great. Only cons: wifi is poor (connects and disconnects randomly)

This was are first stop in our journey around South Africa. The hotel as other reviewers state rooms a little on the small side, in my experience usual for city hotels. The service we received was always with a smile and greeting which goes a long way in this day and age. Breakfast excellent, we ate dinner from the La Cart menu and it was above are expectation for a 3star. Great location for the red & blue buses (table mountain) and restaurants, coffee shops and a little retail therapy on th... Read more

Not just a place away from home, but a place of comfort, friendliness and great customer service. A hotel is not made to stay in it, just for you to put you head down at night to rest. The hotel is situated close to the perfect destination. We visit the hotel every year at it is one of our yearly hangout place. Spacious rooms, love the iron and ironing board in the cupboard no more waiting for that. Always make your stay special.

An unusual hotel that was once a prison and is now part of the campus of the Postgraduate Business School. This gives it an odd institutional feel. The standard room was clean and well appointed but rather cramped and gloomy with a small double be, the sort of thing one might expect to get when attending a management course. The restaurant also had a rather canteen like feel and the service was friendly but slow. . Having said this the location opposite the Aquarium on the V&A waterfront is idea... Read more

I've just realised recently,I stayed in quite a number of Protea Hotels particularly in Cape Town. From the outset, the staff as always are super friendly and very helpful. The hotel itself is very convenient for the V&A ( just a short walk and your there!) The reception and public areas are clean and fresh, certainly the highest standard locally that I've visited. I went for a twin room on this occasion. A bit on the small side, bathroom was well appointed but I was unable to get cold out of th... Read more

We stayed for four nights at end Dec 2016. The unusual element of this hotel is that it's located in a former prison, its facilities are split across three buildings, and it shares space with UCT's Graduate Business School. The prison has an interesting history and the conversion has been extremely well-done. The courtyard, for example, is lush, green and calm. In the rooms, the furnishings are very comfortable, especially and importantly the beds. We had some of the best nights' sleep we'v... Read more

Reasonable price, very adequate room & excellent location - 2 minute walk & you're right in the middle of the Waterfront. Free WiFi. Plenty of parking, quiet at night time. Interesting building used to be a prison!
