My husband and I spent 4 nights at La Splendida at the beginning of our visit to South Africa. This charming little hotel is a big part of why I would love to return to Cape Town. Every staff member was welcoming and helpful. Our room was simply furnished but spotless and comfortable. The included breakfast was just right. The location, across from the Green Point Lighthouse and overlooking the sea, was absolutely delightful. We explored the city and surrounding areas (Winelands tour, highly recommend) and were so happy to return to Splendida at the end of each day. Truly a gem. Read less

The hotel is situated directly across the street from the Green Point Lighthouse which only becomes a problem when there is fog, a big Problem. When there is fog the Lighthouse uses its fog horn every 30 seconds. That's really annoying at night. Also the hotel cooperates with a restaurant for breakfast.

The hotel is situated directly across the street from the Green Point Lighthouse which only becomes a problem when there is fog, a big Problem. When there is fog the Lighthouse uses its fog horn every 30 seconds. That's really annoying at night. Also the hotel cooperates with a restaurant for breakfast. The restaurant is located in the same building and you can choose from t different dishes. Don't take the croissant, it's ridiculous. There is also the problem that the restaurant is very busy and so the water front rooms are very noisy until midnight. Otherwise the hotel is fine and clean if you can overlook small stuff. Read less

The hotel is directly over the road from the Mouille Point lighthouse and is walking distance from the V&A Waterfront. The hotel is small but the room I had was very spacious and comfortable. The restaurant serves good food in generous portions. WiFi is free and more than adequate. Staff are super friendly. I can’t believe it took me this long to… Read more

The photo on TA needs updating that said its a small hotel with a bar and restaurant on the ground floor which does the a la carte breakfast. Check in straight forward albeit a bit dark and dingy. We had booked a superior room which meant we had a sitting room and a bedroom with the usual accompaniments TV A/C fridge tea and coffee making stuff.… Read more

We had booked a superior room which meant we had a sitting room and a bedroom with the usual accompaniments TV A/C fridge tea and coffee making stuff. Room is pretty basic but its bright clean comfortable serviced everyday. Everyone nice cheerful. Breakfast made to order not a massive choice but enough for most people and cooked to order Enjoyed our time there Read less
