please recommend a hotel in Cape Town

Suggestions received have been Table Bay Hotel, Radission, Cape Grace... then Protea Victoria B&B, which seems nice but has no non-smoking rooms.

We are looking for a place that is less than $250USD per night, from which we could walk to table mountain and the waterfront safely.

as far as amenities go - really just need non-smoking, private bathroom, clean and perhaps a concierge to help with some activities. We will arrange for the wine tour with our travel agent. I'm willling to compromise room views and 5 star things to be closer to the attractions within budget.

On my last trip, I stayed at the Victoria & Alfred Hotel, which is right on the waterfront. At the time I was there, the dollar was a strong currency, and my room was around $125 or so -- with the collapse of the US dollar, the rates are likely higher, but I would think they are less than $250.

I adored Kensington Place but it may be a bit higher than your budget. Walking to Table Mountain from the Waterfront is quite a hike.

Have you looked into An African Villa? Or the Cape Heritage?

We've stayed at the Cape Grace and the Commodore, both by the waterfront. Easy walking to the restaurants. We wanted to stay at the Victoria & Alfred on the last trip, but couldn't get the dates we wanted.

Consider the boutique Hotel Cape Town Hollow. It is not within the walking distance to Table Mountain, but is approximately half-way between Table Mountain and the Waterfront, with the 'Long Street' behind the hotel full of activities and directly overlooking the pretty and peaceful Company Gardens. In effect it is difficult to walk to the Waterfront from any Cape Town hotel that is not directly on the Waterfront, because of the traffic patterns, traffic congestion and ongoing construction in preparation for the 2010 Soccer Games. So you need to take a taxi if you wish to go to the Waterfront and you need to take a taxi to get to Table Mountain, as it is quite an uphill hike. It is a nice B&B hotel.
Hope this is helpful.
