Centrally located overlooking Cape Town’s historic Greenmarket Square, Inn on the Square is a welcoming and affordable hotel for business and leisure visitors. Guests can step out from the hotel straight into the bustling and vibrant African crafts market, it’s a short walk to several excellent restaurants, the night life of Long Street, museums, galleries and attractions including Company Gardens, and it is conveniently located for the government and business districts and the convention centre. There are beautiful views of Table Mountain from the higher floors and from the roof deck, where there is a small swimming pool, sun loungers, gym and sauna.
There are 165 comfortable ensuite bedrooms spread over eight floors, all with double-glazing to minimise the sounds of the market, air-conditioning and heating, complimentary tea and coffee facilities, in-room safes and satellite TV. The modern stylish decor is clean, fresh and functional with very comfortable beds and crisp linen, and the compact bathrooms have good efficient showers. Wi-fi is better on the lower floors and there are two computers available for guests to use in the lobby with free, fast internet access.
The professional and welcoming staff are always at hand to help you make the most of your stay in Cape Town, with recommendations for what to do and where to eat, making reservations for you with friendly helpfulness. Guests enjoy the extra little touches, such as iced tea always available in the lobby and the early evening cheese and wine pre-dinner drinks.
Excellent buffet breakfasts offer a wide selection of appealing dishes including tasty omelettes, and Dish, the hotel’s in-house restaurant, provides an à la carte menu specialising in South African’s varied cuisine with a good selection of South African wines and an open air terrace giving on to the market for summer meals.
There is valet parking for those travelling by car, but the hotel is so close to everything that you can do without a vehicle, hopping on the open tour buses for sightseeing trips around the city.
Altogether Inn on the Square offers good value for money, excellent service and a convenient city centre location.
