        It was my first time in Capetown. Hotel was not very convenient to most popular spots, but cabs and buses helped. While cabs are very expensive, it is what it is. I like the free WiFi. Contemporary style us cool. Staff friendly. Closeness to grocery store is great. Asia restaurant is ok.

        I felt like I got what I had researched. More room service / food options would be nice! Ice machines would be appreciated. Soda and snack machines would be helpful. Thanks for making my stay enjoyable overall.

        The space of the room is comfortable as well clean.

        Type of service provided really poor such as you have to request for iron machine & " Yourself" have to bring it to your room. My wife had to bring it. There is no staff of the hotel help you carrying you baggage during check in/out or provide you with any service to your room. 2- internet is limited for only 100mb & they provided with vouchers. Sometime voucher will be out of stock & thus you have to wait for couple of days. 3-For the entire hotel there is only 3 iron machines which means most often during season you wont find one. You have to stay in queen which I honestly, didn’t like in it. 4- Hotel staff weren’t nice during check in, the hotel manager is who is running the hotel so you would imagine how many staff they have. 5- During check in hotel request to provide all details of your " Credit Card" which is unacceptable at all. It is very confidential & shouldnt be shared with anyone. If you are looking for service & Warm welcome during check in I wouldnt recommend it if you are looking for only clean room with reasonable breakfast & without service(iron machine then it might be suitable for you. The price I got it was for $90 for

        Nice room, breakfast ok.

        Breakfast is ok but lacks organisation (staff running around etc)

        The comfort, luxury and cleanliness of the room.

        The security in the hotel was non existant. You can only access the room section of the hotel via the lift if you use your room cardkey to activate the lift to go to the required floor.However anyone off the street can enter the building and walk up via the stairs to any floor they choose.I See this as a huge security risk.

        The fact that we booked to stay again in the space of three months, surely reflects our opinion of what value for money we found at The New King's Hotel. We did have a comment to make from our previous stay but that was noted and we were kindly upgraded on our room booking this time, which afforded us an absolutely stunning room with sea views and space galore! The location, setting, decor and general community feel of being in a little centre where locals frequent just adds to the sense of being 'at home' away from home. We will definitely be staying there very soon as we often come to Cape Town to visit our daughters who are currently studying at uct. I would, and have already recommended this Hotel to other visitors to Cape Town, whether for business or pleasure.

        Close proximity to major attractions (v&a Waterfront and Camps Bay. Restaurants and food stores located on the ground floor is very convenient. Enjoyed the variety of fresh fruit available for breakfast.

        Breakfast are was inadequately staffed, with one person on duty to see to tables and manage buffet area.

        It has beautiful rooms with a view of the ocean. Staff very friendly and helpfull. Directions to the hotel on the dot.

        The road noise of the garbage truck and workers early in the morning.

        Peace, quite, seaview, mountain view, locality, nearby shops and restaurants as well as safe parking. I thought the linen, towels and gowns provided was true to a 5 or 4 star hotel. The separate toilet seems a very nice idea. Thanks to the morning paper I discovered an art exhibition that proved to be very worth my while. (Andrew Munnik) Overall a very pleasant stay. Would defenately use it again.

        The water from the shower leaked but I am sure they will address this.

        Location & parking facilities are excellent ! Staff is friendly and professional. Room is basic but spacious and includes an IPod docking station with ceiling speakers which is nice. Very noisy hotel but the sound of the airconditioning overrules almost all others so actually excellent. Considering the price ( cheap ! ) it's well worth the price and absolutely recommendable.

        Breakfast is a disaster (cold coffee, only a few eggs available) But plenty of other places in the area; VA has some excellent venues though. The option to book without breakfast would be welcome. Lousy cleaning by staff; floors were not cleaned at all.

        Great central location and I loved the iPod dock on the wall with the ceiling speakers. Excellent continental breakfast choices and exquisite staff.

        Unusual for a Cape Town hotel not to have a pool! And why did I have to pay in advance - or is that a Booked.net thing?
