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.

The service at dinner is very poor. Your wait for too long just to place and order or get a sit for a dinner table. My room had electrical problem and the hotel staff took their own time to sort it out

This is a simple, neat, smart and excellent value for money hotel. Very friendly, efficient and courteous staff. Location of the hotel is great, it's secure and safe with outstanding views of Cape Town and the Table Mountain. Cape Town's best restaurants, social spots and the Waterfront shopping mall are all very conveniently close by.
