VICTORIA ALFRED HOTEL RATES: Victoria & Alfred Hotel Rates

This landmark hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront and offers spectacular views of the working harbour and Table Mountain. Walk in the utmost safety to some of the finest retail outlets from designer stores to restaurants, craft markets, cinemas, boat cruises to Robben Island and entertainment in the amphitheatre.

Built in 1904 as the North Quay Warehouse and converted into a luxury hotel in 1990, the V&A Hotel is named in honour of the Queen of England and her son who visited the Cape in 1870 when Prince Alfred officially opened the Breakwater Basin – today’s Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.

Drive along the N2 and follow the signs into Cape Town. When the highway forks, take the right fork which leads onto the Nelson Mandela Boulevard (previously known as Eastern Boulevard). When you reach the intersection at the end of the highway (at the Waterfront), you will see the Cape Town Convention Centre (CTICC) on your left. Turn Right at the traffic light into main V&A Waterfront entrance (Coen Steytler Entrance). Continue along Dock Road and at the traffic circle take the first exit. At the next traffic circle take the second exit and continue straight along Dock Road. You will drive past the Two Oceans Aquarium on your right, the blue shed craft market and then the Musica store. The Victoria & Alfred Hotel is situated on your right hand side shortly after the Musica store.

It’s the precise details that gives the Victoria & Alfred Hotel its elegance, intimacy, romance and reputation….the wooden staircase, the telescope, flowers and the service….friendly and efficient yet never intrusive.

Then there are the bedrooms – 94 spacious, air-conditioned, en-suite rooms spread over three floors. Our superior luxury double rooms boast separate bath, shower and toilet, king-sized beds and are creatively styled and well-appointed. All have coffee and tea on tap, with private bar, electronic safe, pay-for-view television, wireless internet plus high speed internet access and trouser press….every room has a view over the ever-awake Alfred Basin or Piazza. Truly unbeatable!

On both the first and second floor, there are Mountain and Piazza facing Rooms. Views of the vivacious Piazza are experienced from the Piazza Facing Rooms. The Mountain Facing Rooms offer inspiring views over the ever awake Alfred Basin and majestic Table Mountain. Flat-screen televisions are also data compatible and are able to connect to a laptop for data projection and can swivel to face the seating areas.

Our third floor is home to 26 sophisticated superior loft bedrooms – the ideal space for visitors seeking a cosmopolitan experience with all the refined luxury that the Victoria & Alfred Hotel shamelessly boasts.

The intense vibrancy and local colour of the Waterfront may entice you to leave your luxurious surrounds to mingle with the buskers and dancers who bring indigenous music to life – on the other hand, each room and loft is such a haven of pure comfort and indulgence, we’d be surprised if you’d want to leave at all!
