Profile: Cape Town City Centre

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.

    Excellent few days

    We had never been to Cape Town before so really welcomed the help we had from the staff in planning our few days. The breakfasts were fantastic and they had lots of recommendations for good restaurants within walking distance. Would highly recommend as a base for exploring Cape Town

    Boutique hotel in quiet, central locale was a hit!

    Parker Cottage is in a peaceful street in the centre of town. There are some lovely older homes in the neighbourhood - of which this is one. After a warm welcome with a drink and informative chat, we were shown to our beautiful room overlooking a koi pond. The house is furnished in cool greys and antiques, with lots of interesting art, objets and books. The bathrooms are stocked with Rain toiletries, a local brand which is delicious Breakfast is served by on a sun--filled patio, with a choice of cooked or various continental options - all top notch. The team create a happy, peaceful space from which to go out and explore this vibrant city. Can you tell we loved everything about it? We were only there for 3 nights but would definitely return and will be recommending to friends.
