"Great Little Hotel" Protea Hotel Pier Place Cape Town Tip by DeeGeeZee

This is a great little hotel, with only 56 rooms(actually, all suites). Small enough for the staff to know you by name. Very friendly and efficient staff. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable, with the exception of the tiny tv with very poor picture quality, and only a couple of channels to choose from. (Yes, I know I did not fly all the way to Africa just to watch TV, but I did spend a lot of the evenings in the room, as it was not that safe on the streets in the evenings.)

Unique Qualities: Overall I give this hotel high marks. The included breakfast was great with lots of fruit , yogurt and cereals, as well as bacon and eggs cooked to order. Hotel is about a 20 minute walk to the V & A waterfront. I would stay there again.

Address: Near the Civic Centre on the south edge of the CBD
Price Comparison: about average
