눉My poor review stems from the fact that on the morning that I was leaving, I discovered that $600 usd had been stolen right out the in- room safe. I was furious. I travel regularly alone,and I am always hyper- aware of keeping all my money and important documents secure. I always locked the safe, with a code that I created myself and had traveled with both usd and cad. I had not touched my us money for the week that I was in Cape Town as it was a better rate for me to use my cad dollars. As I was on my way to the airport for an outgoing flight, there was little that I could do at the time in regards to attempting to get any money back from management. I brought the issue up with the on-site manager, but the only thing she kept saying was that she has the only key that accesses the safes, and that is locked in her safe. Clearly, that was not the case. Needless to say, I am extremely disappointed with Primi Oxford House and prior to that morning, I had planned on giving it a rave review. Now, I would strongly caution anyone against staying there. What is the point of having an in-room safe if anyone can potentially make a copy of a key and access it anyways?? A very disappointing end to what was otherwise a wonderful stay in Cape Town.
눇I rely very heavily on trip advisor when researching trips and places to stay/eat/visit. And I always try to provide fair and accurate reviews of the places that I have visited. That being said, I will start off with all the positives of Oxford House: -Good Location: several restaurants close by, near a beach you can hang out on, easy walking distance to the V & A Waterfront -Large, clean, bright rooms with comfortable beds, sizeable washroom, and and adequately equipped mini-kitchenette -Quick turnaround laundry service with reasonable price (100 rand, about $10 CAD)
