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.

Lovely hotel, beautiful rooms with lovely modern finishes and spacious too, wonderful atmosphere, exquisite views on the 14th floor. Great place. The windows in the rooms are difficult to close though.

All I can say is that I wish that I could afford to do this more often. We as pensioners really enjoyed the attention that we received during our stay. We visited all the places that we wanted to see again
