Guest reviews for Southern Sun Waterfront Cape Town

4 out of 5

good choice

my husband and me stayed in this hotel for a weekend, and we booked this hotel after reading the reviews. I must say this hotel has really good standards though the pool is more like a show piece, staff is very friendly, location is good( only about 15 mins walking to V&A water front), However,its one of the 1st hotels on the main road( so its not amongst many shops and the busy city),and it gets really lonely and scary to walk after 6 pm.But if u take a taxi and go to the main street in the city, thats the long lane street then its quite safe and believe me that street is really happening.
