steal from my safebox

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 30, 2011

They have stolen 900$ from my safebox!!! t was proved & the manager "Iris Hambloch" had the worst behavior toward us!!! even the porters in there,have access to your safebox & that is what I have found later!!! one of them gave the key to the cleaner to bring him the money!!!that is what the cleaner had confessed & only the cleaner was fired!!! & also there was no refund of money !I do feel sorry for the manager IRIS for her behavior more than that cleaner!!!
That was the worst vacation & hotel that I have ever been to!
DON EVER DARE TO GO THERE because the other staff have also claimed that it has happend in there before!!!

The Ritz is among the most popular hotels in Cape Town, especially for middle class – tourists. It was built in the 1970s and surely was a top-class hotel in its heydays. Time hast left its traces on this building and some parts of it are in need for some refurbishment. Rooms were clean, with all the basic facilities you need, including a safe in the room and a TV (without remote control…). The hotel is part of the African Sky Hotels chain. It is very close to a street which has a couple of shops and restaurants (Main Road). There, you’ll also find a bus stop (also frequented by shared taxis) to the city center. A couple of meters downhill, at the ocea, you’ll find the bus stop for the service to V & A Waterfront. If you don’t mind a longer walk, you can also walk along the coastline and get there on your own feet.

Unique Quality: The stay here was great. The extensive breakfast buffet was delicious and offered warm and cold food. Staff is friendly and helpful and will try their best to make you feel comfortable. And the view from the upper floors is just incredible – the Atlantic Ocean and Lion’s head. I got the hotel through a special promoting from Expedia and it was more than worth its price.

Directions: The hotel is the tallest building of the area and you can see it from almost every place in Sea Point

Good location,car needed if you stay longer,waterfront is a beat far to do everyday by foot

The only downside the rooms are a bite dated,needs renovation

I like The Ritz in Cape Town as it is located in Sea Point area and it offers a lovely view of the ocean. Prices are quite acceptable - from 35-50 euros depending of the season.
The hotel offers one of the best breakfasts. It is close to Town and for the tourists like me that like buying African souveniers - close to the Saturday Green Market.
Hope you will enjoy your stay there. I lived in The Ritz for 3 months and I really enjoyed it!

Unique Quality: The most beautiful sunsets can be seen from one of the windows of the hotel

Directions: Sea Point

Great views and staff

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

I didn't really care too much where I was staying in Cape Town. I had rented my own car and I knew I wanted to be close to the town. The Ritz, in Sea Point was just great for a jumping off point for the rest of the Western Cape. It was close enough to the main roads of the N1 and N2 plus it has great views of the waterfront and of Lion's Head. The rooms were very adequate and clean and just right. The staff there was so friendly and while sometimes they got swamped with people they handled everything with poise and patience!

Unique Quality: The restaurant at the top of the hotel actually rotates! It is really awesome and has some great views! It serves some local cuisine and some European/Mediterranean dishes. The breakfast buffet is open at 6:30am and you can get room service as well.

Over all this was a great place to stay. It is safe, the staff is great and they will really try to go out of their way for you, the guards really try to take care of you.

I had this as a package deal through Expedia.com and it worked out great. They are run through the company African Sky-Hotels, spas and resorts.

Directions: As you drive on main street you will come by an internet cafe on your left and an Avis sign, and there is a Woolworths and an Atlantic Christian Center on your right. The entrance is just up the road about 50m on the left.

The Ritz

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 16, 2005

I stayed for a couple of nights in a triple room in this quite aged building.This hotel looked old but other than that i guess my night stays were quite satisfying.The interior of this hotel looked outdated talking in terms of fashion but i guess the view towards the Lion's Peak is OK.

I guess this is one of the cheapest hotel in town since the hotels in Cape Town are quite expensive.
Got thru an agent for RM 260.00 ( about USD65 )

During my check-in time,coincidentally the whole Cape Town was struck with a power failure.
I dont know about other hotels, but this hotel doesnt have its own generator for backup purposes.
No elevator operation during that one-hour or so and we have to climb up the stairs 4 floors.

Overall is quite cheap but can be better.
