    Sadly the night was a great disappointment. Besides waiting an hour before going to find a wine list ourselves as nobody served us with one we were about an hour into our meal when a rather inconsiderate man decided to smoke his cigar (s) in the area to the left of the bar as you aproach from the entrance. One poor lady had to go to the bathroom as she could not enjoy her meal. The man was apparently "difficult" and we left there before 20:30. Even an international visitor (Richard, who resides in Shanghai) went to sit in the lobby with his wife due to all this. The Hilton should be ashamed of this level of service and my wife and I have been doing the "Hotel Dinner" thing for a while....and a couple of hotels with lower "star" ratings made your establishment look really really bad with regards to service, flies on the food on the bottom level where salads, soup, bread etc was and not being able to handle a smoker situation which would also make him (or the hotel) liable to get a hefty fine. How will this be handled? Who is to blame....or is this the basic standards one can expect from The Hilton in Cape Town?

    Its very central

    The level of service during a dinner reservation was pathetic so I shudder to think how it would be to spend a few nights there.

    • Cigar smoker right next to where we were eating

    The hotel staff are very service-oriented.

    There are no vegetables for breakfast, for example: tomato, paprika and cucumber- It makes me suprised that a such luxury hotel have no vegetables. In Durban, South Africa I lived at Hilton Hotel. I got many good vegetables to sandwiches. But not in Cape Town, despite the same hotel chain: Hilton hotel.

    Extremely good service from the time we arrived from Reception staff to waiters at breakfast. I would definitely recommend Hilton Cape Town City to anybody that plans to visit Cape Town

    We stayed in Room 603, the only negative thing I picked up about Hilton Cape Town City was our toilet unfortunately did not smell fresh, you know especially after you get back from a days outing and the room had just been cleaned. This however did not stop us from have a great weekend getaway Thank you

    Good

    The only comment I would have is that it is situated in a bad area in Cape Town however you do get great views of Table mountain which make up for it. Also the parking is expensive, although this was comped for me. The meals are good but is halhal, so for some travellers this may be an issue.

    I live in Cape Town and since this hotel was taken over by Hilton Group from Coral, I was curios to see whats it all about. The junior suite on 8th floor is absolutely stunning. I would really recommend it to anyone. And to top it off you're in the middle of the city. And what a city it is!! Foreigners put this hotel on your to do list!! Locals try it at least once, and i bet you'll wanna go back. I know we do :))

    The whole experience was awesome, and in future when we plan our next trip to this beautiful place we would definitely choose Hilton Cape town city centre. The staff was very friendly and we loved the whole idea of serving Halal food in the hotel. The Signal Hill Lounge was the highlight of our trip, after the days trip we relaxed having Shisha in the most beautiful ambience. Overall excellent stay and trip

    Loved the location, very central. Staff were very pleasant and the manager/s on duty when we checked in and out showed good customer service skills. Staff on duty when we called for assistance at 2am were also very helpful- this made a difference. Loved the quiet ambiance throughout - very relaxing. The beds and linen very comfortable with well appointed bathroom.

    Had to call twice for extra soap and a bathrobe as there was only one-we had booked for two!

    Very good

    Excellent location, and great rooms. Staff were very good.

    Housekeeping was poor, took the whole day to have the room cleaned. No apology from housekeeping. Also a problem with booking on Booked.net, as executive lounge access included and paid for on Booked.net, was not relayed to hotel and therefore not provided to me. Better to book direct.

    Very comfortable room with everything you need. Modern gym that is well maintained.

    The room was a bit noisy since it had an interleading door to the next room that was occupied by other guests. You could therefore hear them. When I ordered room service I was transfered to the Bistro. They were not keen to take my order and said I must phone room service. After I explained that I was transferred by room service to them the lady reluctantly took my order.

    I have stayed at different hotels (including one Hilton in Europe), and none compares to Hilton Cape Town City Centre. What I liked most was the attention to detail and the extroadinary friendly service of hotel staff.

    Although the breakfast was good and the service was great, there was an incident at breakfast where it seemed that someone was confused. We were asked for our room number five times. When I mentioned this to the waiter, he apologized and did his best to make the rest of our breakfast experience as pleasant as possible.
