                Awesome location in the heart of the CBD! Safe and secure and in safe walking distance to some fabulous Cape Town restaurants and sight-seeing destinations. Our beautifully furnished self-catering apartment had 2 bedrooms, both ensuite which was perfect for our family of 4. I highly recommend Mandela Rhodes Place!!!

              • Family with children
                9.2

                Very central with easy access around the city. Plenty of shopping and eating options within the immediate vecinity.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                The staff was unfailingly courteous, pleasant, and helpful. Location was terrific. A great value.

                Minor maintenance issues. Fixtures needed tightening, and tv remote had dead batteries.

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                We like the room as it is apartment style and spacious. Location is right in the city which is good for walkabout around the attractions nearby.

                The shower screen is too short, thus when you use the standing shower, the whole toilet floor gets very wet. Housekeeping service was slow as we called for a wine opener and it did come for 30 minutes and I had to call for another reminder. It still didn't arrive until 25 minutes later! It was too late then..

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                A good hotel that provides comfortable accommodation at a good price. It is also close to a number of good amenities in the city.

                It would seem that the supply of toiletries and vanity accessories has been down graded.

              • Single
                9.2

                Central location, walking in the city, laid back attitude, room space, did I mention space?

                The surrounding area can get noisy at night....street cleaners and the night club next to the Taj.

                I liked the value for money and the hotel even waived off the parking fee for all 3 nights on just a simple request. The hotel rooms were clean and provided excellent view of Table Mountain and the bus stops for city sightseeing tours are very close.

                Just wish they used simpler fittings in the bathroom for hot/cold water. :)

                There was a mistake with our booking and the reception staff delt with this calmly and efficiently. Staff were so kind and helpful and always ready to help and enquire about our stay. One even walked us to a restaurant as it was getting dark and they wanted to ensure our safety.

                The water in the pool was a little cold but really this was inconsequential as we had such a good stay there.

                Had a crazy time with the aircon. didn't work, leaked water, etc. Had to change rooms 3-4 times in 6 days. Crazy! Staff was very nice about it, but what a hassle. Makes you wonder if anyone is keeping up on upkeep or getting ready to sell again.

                the fact that i was forced to pay an extra amount for parking because Booked.net had not updated the parking tariff increase

                We had a beautiful two bedroom/ 2 bathroom apartment with sea views. The apartment was roomy, clean and very well appointed. There were excellent, well priced restaurants downstairs and when we were looking for a money change service a staff member walked with us to the bank. Shops are at the door. Breakfast is delicious. Table mountain and waterfront are easily reached. It is in the city centre. A great base for Cape Town.

                We had a fabulous time at mandela Rhodes - it was an excellent location and good value for money.

                We had a bit of tricky start with a safe that was not working, and some repeated calls to the concierge, and then a leaking ceiling ... in the scheme of things not major, they were dealt with well, but a bit iof a hiccup. Not enough for us to not recommend mr to others.

                The hotel is very central to pretty much everything in Cape Town - the Waterfront is a 5 minute drive away, Long street and Greenmarket square a minute walk away and taxi's are very accessible from the hotel. The hotel apartments are large, clean and modern and we were lucky to have a view of Table Mountain. The staff were also very friendly.

                We were intially moved into a room without a washing machine which is suppose to be standard in all rooms and had to ask to be moved into another room - this was however done straight away. The cleaning service woke us up at 9am to ask if we wanted the room cleaned on the only day of the holiday we had to sleep in!! The gym was only functional on one day during our stay - I was very disappointed since this was one of the reasons I booked at the hotel. Another disapointment was that we did not have electricity for a whole aftenoonr and evening during our stay - I understand that this was not the hotel's fault since a substation supplying the hotel apparently experienced problems but there were no apologies offered on the matter. I would also expected a night free on offer for that especially since the apartments are self catering and it meant that we could not use the apartment's amenities - nothing was offered. We also got charged for two breakfasts against our room that we did not have and although this was resolved it resulted in our check-out taking 30 minutes.
