Excellent, can't fault it

Cheshire,England

Beautiful hotel. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and very clean. We arrived late so ordered room service which was tasty and nicely presented. Idea location for the shops and restuarants of Nelson Mandela Square.

Dated but nice

Western Cape, South Africa

This was a quick and late decision to stay overnight but I'm happy that I chose the Michelangelo as it was extremely convenient and suited my needs pretty much perfectly. The establishment is obviously quite old and somewhat dated but still exudes old-world charm with service standards to match.
