SunSquare Cape Town City Bowl

Cape Town, South Africa

The hotel

Inspired by its setting in one of the globe’s most thrilling modern metropolises, this bold bolthole is decked out with funky design touches and those exciting treats that are the reserve of today’s urban hotels, including a rooftop bar and pool. Its location puts you among some of the city’s best museums, entertainment spots, and dining and drinking venues, with Adderley, Bree, and Long Streets all in easy reach. The city will draw you in with its buzz and attractions but, when you do return to SunSquare Cape Town City Bowl, you can tuck into South African favourites at Vigour & Verve, hit the penthouse gym, or head up to the rooftop for a quick dip in the pool – before bites and beverages at 14 Stories Rooftop Bar, with its views of the V&A Waterfront, Signal Hill, and Table Mountain.

So, in fact location, standard and staff service very good. So why two points out of five only ? This is why; I needed to work in my room download some stuff, listen to latest news, etc. And was cut off on the WiFi several times asking for more money. Paid, but in the end gave up.

So, in fact location, standard and staff service very good. So why two points out of five only ? This is why; I needed to work in my room download some stuff, listen to latest news, etc. And was cut off on the WiFi several times asking for more money. Paid, but in the end gave up. Any little guest house, hotel and restaurant now have free WiFi in South Africa. In the big world it's a must. But Sun Square City Bowl gives you 500mb. Which normally should last a fair bit but in their hotel exactly 45 min. Then I complained at the reception; I wasn't the first. They couldn't or wouldn't do nothing about it though, so I bought 2 Gig from the operator of the hotel WiFi - AlwaysOn. It lasted 90 min ! My conclusions: 1. If Sun Square hotel wants to be competitive, introduce free wifi. 2. If you for some reason want to make money on this, be fair (I think AlwaysOn is screwing you...) 2 Gig, 90 min is a fraud.

Hotel with beautiful modern rooms, neat and spacious. Within walking distance to downtown and 5-10 min ride to the waterfront. Spacious dining facilities and good breakfast. Would recommend the hotel as it is not too touristy and well located

Conveniently located, within walking distance of some great places during the day. We rented a car from Avis for the day and it was only a 2 block walk from/to the hotel. Breakfast was pretty good, coffee service was nice. The bottle of water in the room per day was nice. Rooftop bar was nice. I only wish they had an ATM in the building.
