Profile: Cape Town City Centre

Cape Town City Centre is where you can immerse yourself in the city’s buzz. Among the city's prim colonial facades, you can enjoy first-rate multicultural cuisine, splash the cash in a glossy mall, rummage for bargains at the Greenmarket Square flea market, or take in the vibrant colors of Adderley Street’s sweet-smelling flower stalls.

If you’re a bit of a culture junkie, Cape Town City Centre has no shortage of theaters, museums, and galleries. The Iziko South African Museum and the Iziko South African National Gallery are home to some of South Africa’s most gawp-worthy treasures.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Stylish property in a trendy area. The room is more comfortable and upmarket than I had realized when booking. We came a quiet time around Christmas, didn’t wind up trying the restaurant Shio or spending time at Pianobar, both of which are known in Cape Town.

    Great spot!

    Great boutique hotel in an amazing location! Close to tons of food, drinks, and easy access to major tourist destinations. Really cool roof top bar with views of table mountain. Highly recommend!

    A Real Boutique Hotel

    A true boutique hotel. The physical space and design was unique and special, but functional and comfortable. The entire staff made you feel like special guest. The restaurant menu was limited, but we'll prepared and presented. The piano bar each evening was warm and intimate. The location was perfect for dining and unique shopping opportunities. In addition, it is within easy walking distance of the VA Waterfront. Due to the various elevations in the property, those that are physically challenged, might opt for a different space.

    Good location and friendly service!

    Lovely boutique hotel in a good area. Not far from the V&A port. It’s not quite walking distance to the wharf but very close. We used Uber to get there within minutes and it was only 2.34usd! The rooms are modern and cool. Great air conditioning, comfy bed and we had our own rooftop balcony. It is a little loud because our room (4) is in the hallway up to the rooftop bar. The staff was amazing. Super friendly and helpful. They have live music many nights, a restaurant and a front porch for sipping cocktails. Loved it and would go back!

    Great location for a short Uber trip to Waterfront. Has some style with its food preparation and general appearance of the hotel.

    We stayed for three nights in Room 5 after being upgraded. The hotel was just what we needed and ideally placed (15 minute walk) between the CBD and the waterfront. The breakfast was great and we had a performance from David Januari while we ate our delicious dinner in the Piano Bar on the first evening. We were delighted with the complimentary minibar but were a little disappointed that the SkyBar was shut. We would definitely recommend and will stay again if we ever return to Cape Town.

    A very unique hotel in the Hart of one of the best areas of Cape Town. In addition, it is adjoined by their Piano Bar which is in itself a great place to hang out. All the staff are extremely friendly without being in your face. Definitely recommend a stay here, as it is also walking distance to the City Centre and the Waterfront. As well as a vibrant area in itself.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Staff was friendly and helpful and kept me up to date with pickup from shuttles. The hotel is linked with The Piano Bar, a small quaint restaurant, so getting something to eat was convenient. The location of the television was a little odd, but nothing to worry too much about. Would recommend to couples that are looking for a place to stay.

    The staff was consistently courteous and professional. Rooms are nice size and tastefully decorated. It can get a little noisy with a room on the street side.
