Other property highlights include: A rooftop bar, 3 dining options, a rooftop swimming pool, business desk, UNCAPPED complimentary WIFI, a gym, a Gin & Snooker Lounge, 24 hr reception & controlled security access, secure & complimentary underground parking (I really hate when hotels charge for parking – so for this they get a high 5) AND a complimentary shuttle service to the V&A Waterfront & CTICC.
They also plan on launching a spa & hair salon soon (for those who like a little pampering), and then they offer a complimentary laundry service on Mon, Wed and Thur which I thought was quite cool seeing as laundry in hotels can be an eye-watering experience.We stayed in one of their Superior Studios which is 50m2 and comes fitted with a king bed, living area, modern kitchen, tea & coffee making facilities, and a full bathroom with bath & big shower.
Let me give you a quick tour:
I had a quick look on their online booking system and these start from R2630 per night. Their Luxury studios which come with all the same trimmings but are just a little smaller at 42m2 start from R2430 a night (depending on when you want to stay of course).
On the food front, you can do in-room dining, or choose between the rooftop restaurant & bar, The Vue, or they have an Active Sushi and Famous Butcher’s Grill on site too. So plenty of choices.
We had actually booked a table at our favourite Mexican Spot, San Julian, which was just a hop, skip and jump away. Of course being located in De Waterkant means you’re super close to lots of trendy eateries, shops, etc. – so a plus if you feel like venturing out instead. But before we headed out we knew we had to do sundowners at The Vue.
I mean just look at this:The next morning, breakfast was also served up on the rooftop. Enjoying a full fresh fruit, cheese, cold meats, baked goods and warm breakfast spread with this view was certainly a fantastic treat:
Great thing is that you don’t have to stay at the hotel to come and pop in at The Vue and even take a dip in the pool. As long as you’re supporting the bar & the restaurant, you’re all good to go. So do keep that in mind the next time you’re looking for the perfect chill spot (or event venue) with wraparound views.

Overall The Capital Mirage offers a very chic city space, whether you’re staying over or just hanging out on the rooftop. So if the city is where you wanna be, I’d say definitely keep them in mind.
