      Location, Staff attitude and light meals

      We are doing a lot of traveling and prefer to stay in a City or Town Lodge. This was our 4th stay at the City Lodge Hotel at V&A Waterfront -Cape Town over the past few years and still belief they are the best in the country. The stall makes you feel at home, the location is perfect and the food is top class.

      Hotel in a nice location”

      This hotel is not on the waterfront, but 10minutes walk from the waterfront. It is in a perfect location to be able to walk to V&A, MOCAA Museum and all the action associated with the waterfront. In the other direction, it is a 5 minute walk to the CTICC convention centre and also walkable to a lot of other restaurants, tourist locations etc. Staff are friendly and the hotel is kept in a good working order. Due to the location, the hotel is a popular choice for people.

      staff efficiency, friendly, value for money

      We enjoyed our stay once again. The location of the hotel is great for the Waterfront, without paying ridiculous prices. Which at the end of the day is a waste. The rooms are comfortable and clean and in superb condition. The staff have a smile on their faces, and that means that they are happy to help. Congrats. City Lodge you are in your "niche market". Standards have not dropped and it was a pleasure to stay at the Waterfront City Lodge . Keep it up guys, we will return....

      City Lodge Waterfront -- Cape Town”

      Location, breakfast, parking.
      Swimming pool is really just a hot tub.

      Cape Town is a beautiful city with lots to see, but the heart of the tourist area is the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. The City Lodge is just a short, easy walk to there, and the price is very reasonable for such a desirable location. The Agoda rate included free breakfast, which was a pleasant surprise -- and the breakfast is good! I would return to this hotel without hesitation.

      Cape Town's best secret! ”

      I had the best omelette ever at breakfast, made by Jessica, hold on to her City Lodge, she us a gem! Everyone of the staff members were courteous, friendly and very willing to assist the guests. Given the close proximity to traffic I expected to have a restless night, instead the bedroom was peaceful and tranquil, and I had 8 hours of restful sleep. I will happily stay there again. Overall my experience at City Lodge V&A was better than I've had at some 4 star graded hotels.

      A great option”

      We stayed here for 4 nights in December 2018. We were with my in-laws and all of us were very satisfied. My in laws arrived a few days earlier than we did, and they felt that the hotel staff were very helpful in getting them situated in CapeTown. I will say though, that the hotel did not respond to my emails about booking a car to pick us up from the airport, but once we phoned them it was sorted out very quickly. The location is very good, only 10 minutes to the heart of the Waterfront. They have a big parking lot, which was convenient as we had a rental for most of our stay. I didn't eat any of the food because there are so many great restaurants near by! Our room was a good size, modern, and clean. I would happily stay here again on my next visit to Cape Town!

      Very good”

      City Lodge provides a good location at a budget price, as it is just an easy 10 minute walk to V&A Waterfront. The staff were helpful and there was adequate car parking. The rooms were comfortable, but a bit jaded. We didn’t use the restaurant. We were pre warned that there would be major construction works under way right next to the hotel and were offered a free cancellation. As we were only checked in for 2 nights we decided to put up with it, and were quite pleased that the works were ongoing between around 07:45 and 17:00 rather than the much longer periods that we were warned about. This was just as well, as the noise was horrendous with JCBs jackhammering concrete right opposite our (single glazed) room. The situation was made much worse, however as we were put in a smoking room (despite booking non-smoking some months in advance). The choice was open the window to try and get rid of the smell or close it to cut the noise. We would stay again based on location and price, but only if they could guarantee a non-smoking room further away from the construction works.

      City Lodge staff were very nice and accommodating. Hotel was clean and amenities were very satisfactory. The hotel is not luxurious nor do the rooms come with a view or anything spectacular. However, it is a convenient and comfortable place to stay and is located within a 10-15 minute walk from the Waterfront cafes and restaurants.

      Great location, great potential”

      Located within the world famous V&A Waterfront precinct. Closer to most amenities like CITCC, Table Mountain, Seapoint Promenade, Kisternbosch Botanical Gardens, and great restaurants. The cons is facilities - could do better with cleaning the drainage system. The bathroom emitted a strong urine system from the toilet. Otherwise all was okay.

      The hotel is clean, modern and staff are friendly. The rooms were of a high standard - the only thing missing was a minibar but I didn't need it anyway. Complementary tea and coffee are offered in the lounge up to 12noon. Wifi is good. It's a short and safe walk to the waterfront with a Balmoral store and espresso bar right next to the hotel for food and drink. I would stay here again.

      Good location, good breakfast, and clean room

      The City Lodge is located walking distance to both the Waterfront and the city center. With small kids, we walked to both sites without problems. Security guards on the streets made us feel safe on the way as well. The room was spacious for us of four and clean at all time. Breakfast was also of good quality. Internet connection was not so well in the room, but at the reception area, it was all right. We were able to arrange a shuttle service from the hotel to the airport at 4 am at 350 Rand. This was convenient indeed. We would stay there again in future.

      This hotel is in a good location not far (within walking distance) from the waterfront. Far enough away to be quiet and close enough to be able to access it. Also a good affordable location for access in the other direction, the Convention Centre and also Long street is not too far away. The cable car is also a 10min drive away.
