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.

All was good, though Dinner in Hotel Resturant, a staff member did not make notes and omitted an Entree dish. The subsequent offer to place order in kitchen and wait for same would have disrupted the evening flow of Dinner experience.

We stayed here with the Barmy Army during the second cricket test in Cape Town. The hotel was very clean and efficient. The staff in every department were excellent, friendly and willing to help. The room staff came in every day and we had no reason to fault anything, the bed was comfortable and the shower/toilet great. The restaurant and bar staff were very helpful and efficient. The reception staff were friendly and helpful and provided great advice when we were going out and about. All in all a great stay and we would recommend this hotel. The location was great and almost everything we wanted to see in Cape Town was within easy walking distance. Yes there are a number of big issues in the city but staying at this hotel could not be counted among them. Read less
