The Crystal Apartments

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

on arrival we were shown to this amazing apartment. Huge!!!! everything you need to make a very comfy stay. It is situated at the bottom of Table Mountain and is about a 10 min walk downhill to Camps Bay where all the shops and restaurants are and the beach. Secure parking on site as well.

The accomodation is clean and comfortable for two people but is a little walk away from camps bay beach front/shops so come with a car if possible. We did expect the flat to come with some basic supplies to keep us going until we could visit a shop but it had very little. The staff were accomodating, even out of hours. We did have issues with the safe not working; this was reported to reception but was never addressed. We left feeling as though the accomodation suited a long term let and it was run very much like a business rather than a hotel.

Our family group of five spent three nights at The Crystal which turned out to be the perfect package how lucky were we to have made such a choice. Sighted above Camps Bay providing magnificent views particularly at sunset we occupied two different worlds as from our mezzanine sun-deck to the rear we had an awe inspiring view of The Twelve Apostles. Our apartment had every facility,nothing was too much trouble for all staff,ample parking in the garage ( & some interesting cars) I could happily spend months in this environment

Lovely apartment with great views, nice pool (bit cold at the time of the year but would be fab in summer!) and secure parking. Bit of a walk down to camps bay but we knew this before booking and it really wasn't an issue as it wasn't far and taxis are cheap. Wifi was a bit hit and miss in the room and you had to pay extra for it.

I stayed here in April for 10 days with my husband. It's a super convenient location, with really secure parking and everything you could need for an easy and good stay in Cape Town. The Crystal is about 3 mins drive from Camps Bay and 10 minutes from the Waterfront. Uber comes to you within about 3 minutes most of the time and the trips are really cheap. Our apartment had everything we needed and was cleaned every day. The air conditioning was good, the pool was lovely and a life saver at the end of a hot day. The concierge were really helpful and we really enjoyed our stay. I'd recommend this location for anyone who is staying in Cape Town for more than a few days, it's way better than a hotel!

Amazing view and comfortable and clean apartments. Strategically located and well appointed rooms. Loved it Felt like the place to be in camps bay. It is midway to many eateries and has nice facilities

Situated in above a popular and scenic beach at Camps Bay. Stunning views of the bay from your room and the pool. Secure covered parking. Spotless apartments. We had a 2 bedroom, very spacious. Twin beds on top floor with own bathroom and master suite and ensuite down stairs with a full kitchen, washing machine & dryer, dining & lounge area. Fantastic base for exploring Cape town. Very safe to walk down to the beach and many fantastic restaurants, lively atmosphere but totally family oriented too.

Have been to various places in Cape Town but none can beat the scenic views of The Crystal. The cars down the garage are envious. the rooms very spacious and clean. the amenities all on point. There is need to consider scrapping off that ZAR 50.00 WiFi fee though. Will certainly visit again

We stayed 3 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment. Both rooms were ensuite and there was plenty of room for the three of us. Apartment had all the mod cons - washer, dryer, dishwasher etc etc but we didn't use them as we ate out. The location is great - the views from the apartment are superb. Yes it is a bit of a walk to beach/restaurants ((15 mins) and it is uphill on the way back but you don't need to be an athlete to do it (I'm not and managed it just fine). Camps Bay is lovely and I think a better place to stay for families. Nice restaurants, good beach and very close to Table Mountain. Would definitely recommend The Crystal.

The Crystal apartments are comfortable, modern, spacious and I recommend this to any businessperson wanting all these things plus a great view. Sunsets are stunning! The self catering facility suits me so that I can make my own meals in my own time.
