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.

I recently travelled to Cape Town and stayed at Sunsqaure for its location. I need to say a big thank you to Lebo at reception. He went out of his way to make my stay comfortable. I really appreciate it. This is a difficult time to travel and the hotel made it so easy. The room was comfy and had everything I needed. Lovely views!

A smart, comfortable hotel, but my advice would be to always get a taxi from and to this location. Some people who were on the same escorted tour as us were approached by a beggar as they got out of a taxi outside, and it turned into an attempted robbery. BEWARE!

A smart, comfortable hotel, but my advice would be to always get a taxi from and to this location. Some people who were on the same escorted tour as us were approached by a beggar as they got out of a taxi outside, and it turned into an attempted robbery. BEWARE! I was also victim of a street robbery opposite the main railway station. The staff at the hotel were very helpful, but I got the impression that they often had to report crimes to police on behalf of its guests. Lovely roof bar with a great view of Table Mountain. Has a pool on the roof, but it is very small. Reasonably priced food. Read less

We stayed here for 3 nights in March 2020. The hotel is in a good location. Rooms are very spacious and well equipped with all amenities. Breakfast choices are good with a plentiful variety and eggs cooked how you like. Pancakes are also freshly made. Due to the Corona virus our flight to Mauritius was cancelled and we ended up staying an additional 2 nights before we could fly back home to the UK. Due to costs we decided to stay in the adjoining sister hotel Stay Easy. We found the Duty Manager Lebohung to be extremely helpful. He ensured that we could access the adjoining hotel from a connecting floor, gave us a discounted rate for the rooms, allowed us to have breakfast in the Sun Square hotel, provided bottled water and most importantly allowed us a late check out as our flight home was in the evening. Thank you Lebo for showing us humanity and kindness in these troubled times. The world is a better place with people like you. This hotel deserves a 5 star rating! Read less

I had a very good stay at SUnSquear Cape Town City Bowl. I would appreciate some improvements with regards to the turnaround time for answering of calls and in-room dinning service including house keeping.
