Having your own place in the best area of Cape Town is priceless. Very beautiful accomodation. The only down thing was the lack of internet connection.

We arrived at night and raining. The single staff member at the front desk walked with us one block away to our room but he did not help with our bags. The room was plain, but clean. The toilette seat was broken, The internet did not work and there is no way to communicate with the front desk from your room, so I had to walk there and I was told that even though the ads said free internet it meant only at the reception area. If I wanted internet in the room I had to call a local service company and pay for the service. The next day the cable TV stopped working, so I had to walk again to the reception area and the single staff member told me he would go to try and fix it whenever he could. About one hour later he came and fixed it. The room was not cleaned on Saturday or Sunday. If you want that you need to pay extra. When we checked out we were getting charged the equivalent of US $50.00 to hold our bags for 4 hours. After I protested they took the charge off. The location of the hotel is excellent but there are much better deals and places in the same general area as we found out after being there. Find a better place and have a better time.

it's a great location. It feels like home. the staff was friendly. it's has access to all the locations I wanted to see. one of them was the great table mountain. I will visit again in the future. I highly recommend it to anyone.

Great location and great trip, good service too :)

This was a wonderful place to stay. We had a large group of people and rented three apartments total. It really gave the feel of having your own apartment instead of staying in a hotel. The price was great too. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything a person needs in their own apartment. My only complaint was that the TV remotes did not work very well, but not a big deal since I did not want to spend much time watching TV anyways. There was even a washing machine for clothes which was really nice. Every apartment had an outdoor patio or balcony to relax on. The place seemed very secure.

This was the 2nd time staying here. The location is great, Lots of nice places to eat and drink around it. The little house we stayed in was beautiful (#27). Perfect for 2 people with a beautiful upstairs bedroom with bath and shower. In very good shape.. The address on the web site is no longer correct since their office had moved around the corner. Full kitchen and fridge, sitting are all very tastefully done.

Great location where you can walk to many things. Check-in was a breeze and after that it felt like living in a flat (with a maid -- except on Sundays). Easy street parking and also close to LGBT night life. Highly recommended.

De Waterkand Village is an interesting hotel arrangement. Consists of several apartment style rooms in various buildings in close proximitry. Seated at the base of Sentinal Mountain in the former slve district of Cape Town. Staff was wonderful and fully accommodating. Rooms were very spacious with comfortable queen size bed. Bathrooms very clean with a great shower facility. Kitchen area was complete with all utensils needed and for several days one would have everything at hand. Not a hotel in the strict way as there are not in house restaurants nor room sevice amenities. Parking could be a problem but we were lucky with available street parking in front of our building. For the price the accommodation is definetly worth it.
