Good location on V & A Waterfront

Pros: Location and there was a great pub (Ferrymans) that had live music every night. Was great to walk there for a pre dinner drink
Cons: Wifi definitely needs improving. The breakfast area is ok but if you look closely there are crumbs on the floor under each table.
Location: Right across the road from the V & A waterfront where there are heaps of restaurants and you can easily do tourist stuff from there
Great location but as you really need a car in Cape Town , I would probably sacrifice the location for a better hotel a little distance away. The hotel is ok, its just not great value for money. The bathroom was nice but the room was small and the wifi drove us mad. When it did work you had to keep logging on with the password. Maybe that's Africa but my son stayed in a much less expensive hotel about 10 mins walk away and had no problem with his wifi and he had an enormous room .
