Tintswalo Atlantic

With room rates starting at 7.800 rand, Tintswalo Atlantic has some of the highest rates in Cape Town. It’s also a member of Kiwi Collection and I was excited to see how good it could be.

I arrived in the afternoon and received a nice welcome drink and a towel before being escorted to the room. I stayed in a Sicily Island Suite. It had an Italien style and was very beautiful appointed. The bathroom had a free standing bathtub and a separate raining shower. 12 rooms total in Tintswalo Atlantic that all is individuel designed. The balcony had beautiful sea views and the sound of the sea was quite unique as it’s probably the only high end hotel in Cape Town that offers that.

Tintswalo Atlantic is a hotel that charges for everything which you rarely see in small independent hotels. It’s terrible that there is a 100 rand charge for wifi pr. day and that there are no complimentary bottles of water. The service wasn’t very impressive. They just got new staffs and they knew absolutely nothing about their hotel when I talked to them. The chef was very friendly and made a great meal for dinner. Definitely a great dining experience and highly recommended for that.

Overall it’s definitely a unique experience, it just isn’t my kind of hotel and I find all the extras very annoying. Keep in mind this hotel only has fantastic Tripadvisor reviews despite the high rates and if you like the style you will love it.

My opinion: Good+ experience.
