Hotel Safety: Your Guide to a Secure Stay in South Africa

In today’s fast-paced world, travellers seek comfort, convenience, and, above all, safety when staying in hotels. Whether you’re travelling for business or pleasure, knowing how to ensure your safety in a hotel is paramount.

This guide is your go-to resource for understanding the ins and outs of hotel safety. From check-in to check-out, we’ll cover all aspects to make sure your hotel stay is as secure as it is enjoyable.

 1. Choose A Safe Hotel, Choose The Capital Hotels, Apartments and Resorts

Selecting the right hotel is the first step to a secure stay. Here are some crucial considerations:

  • Location Matters: Opt for hotels in safe neighbourhoods or well-lit areas. All of our hotels are located in safe, convenient and secure locations. 
  • Security Measures: Inquire about security features such as surveillance cameras and 24/7 staff availability. All The Capital Hotels Apartments and Resorts have state-of-the-art security systems, with some hotels even being equipped with direct satellite data uplinks and expertly trained staff to keep you safe during your stay. Access to the hotels is secured, with checkpoints and identity verification, as well  as hotel floors being accessible via room key. This ensures that  only people that have been cleared have access.

    In extreme cases, our hotel riot reaction teams have gone through intensive riot management training and have full riot gear and riot defence vehicles. Your safety is our first priority.

 2. Booking Your Stay

Booking a room is more than just selecting dates; it involves ensuring your personal information remains secure:

  • A Secure Booking Website: Here at The Capital Hotels Apartments and Resorts, we take our client’s data protection very seriously.

  • We Protect Your Personal Information: Be cautious with sharing sensitive information online. At The Capital Hotels, Apartments and Resorts, we have data protection methods and encryptions to make sure your personal information remains secure. 

 3. Check-In Procedures

Upon arrival, follow these steps to ensure a smooth and secure check-in:

  • Identity Verification: We first need to verify that it’s you. We need you to provide us with the necessary identification documents. You’ll need a form of identification and a booking 
  • Ask Us Questions: Don’t hesitate to inquire about hotel security measures.

 5. Fire Safety

Hotel fires are rare but are a situation that we plan for. When you get into our hotels please familiarise yourself with our fire safety measures, emergency exits, safety procedures and rally points:

  • Know Emergency Exits: When you enter our hotels please locate the nearest emergency exit.
  • Smoke Alarms: We ensure that every room, hallway, and social area is equipped with smoke detectors that are operational. These are linked to an advanced fire suppression system that will activate to douse and suppress fire threats. 
  • Evacuation Plan: Review our hotel’s fire evacuation plan and familiarise yourself with our emergency rally points.
