SunSquare Cape Town City Bowl

Cape Town, South Africa

Virgin rating

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.

We stayed here for 5 nights whilst visiting attractions. The first impression was how gloomy it is downstairs which was where the restaurant and communal lounge area was. The reception staff were polite and professional but not particularly friendly. We had been told it was safe to walk around the area in the day time but that is not what we found as on our very first afternoon we were scammed so that put paid to any further walks. The rooftop bar and terrace area was nice and the room was as per Premier Inn standard. We had one nice meal in the restaurant and one not nice as I made the mistake of ordering a pizza which they seemed to think meant a flatbread. We wouldn't stay here again. Read less

I can’t say anything negative about this hotel. Everything is clean and beautiful. I liked the fancy still of literally everything including the gym toilet with view of table mountain. The rooms are super comfy with lovely shower and great bed.

The lady at reception was really helpful checking us in and had the etiquette of a 5 star hotel check in clerk. We spent four nights in a family room facing bo kaap. The room was clean and comfortable with a new fresh feel. Breakfast selection was ok and very covid friendly. Staff were amazing. The pool area was quiet and beautiful with incredible views of bo kaap, the harbour and mountains. Conveniently situated with easy highway access to all major attraction routes and short walking distance to the Cbd, kloof st, bo kaap and company gardens. Will definitely stay here again. Read less

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!
