    Much nicer neighbourhood than the Waterfront. Centrally located nevertheless. Ideal for a first glimpse at Africa.

    location, room furnishings, space, terrace facilities, internet access

    room service was non-existant. for that sort of money you expect staff to come in each day, tidy up the room, change towels where necessary and refill the coffee and tea sachets. they didn't do it. we went at world cup so you would expect a price-hike but even so the price was a bit too much relative to other places

    the location was excellent and the rooms ideal for a visit to cape town for the world cup.

    it would have been nice for the internet to have been available in the rooms.

    The setup is unique and interesting. It is good value for the price paid.

    No table, no phone, and no heat in the room. Lack of heating could be a problem if it gets colder that it was during my stay. Also, Internet access was intermittent, and my room was not covered by the free WiFi signal.

    The Charles was a charming guesthouse right in the town's Waterkant section. We loved the views from the rooftop decks and the room was unique. Kenny was especially helpful.

    We didn't have a phone, radio, or clock in the room but were able to use our cell phone as an alarm. We also could not get more than 2 stations on the TV. These were minor issues.
