Cape Town CBD Accommodation

Cape Town, affectionately known as the Mother City owing to its status as South Africa’s oldest city, lies almost at the tip of the African continent. It is a sprawling city which spreads out northwards, hugging Table Bay and eastwards into the notorious Cape Flats. The city is home to 3.5 million people and yet the Cape Town central business district is surprisingly small. Accommodation in Cape Town is in abundance, as the city is a tourism hotspot.

Lying within an area known as the city bowl, there has rarely been a more opportune circumstance in which to use the word ‘nestled’. In this area, the city really is nestled between the majestic Table Mountain with Lion’s Head and Signal Hill to the west and Devil’s Peak to the east. The city bowl is Cape Town’s creative hub, as well as tourism central. However, the bowl comprises a number of suburbs which creep up the lower slopes of the mountain, and the CBD is just a small portion of the total city bowl area. As beautiful as the city is, the variety of accommodation allows for options that expand across all price ranges. From chalets to bed and breakfasts , the Mother City has something for everyone.

It is in fact a few walkable blocks, stretching from the top of iconic Long Street (where it meets trendy Kloof Street) down to the foreshore and the Cape Town International Convention Centre. The Cape Town CBD may be small but it packs a lot of punch. Not only is it full of beautiful architecture ranging from Art Deco to Victorian and Cape Dutch-inspired buildings, but there are a number art galleries and boutique clothing outlets along the streets, and while Long is a favourite amongst tourists, Cape Town’s local creative like to hit up the bars on Bree Street.

The CBD is also a treasure chest of cultural diversity with museums rubbing shoulders with Somalian-owned convenience stores and high rise hotels. There are also a number of interesting restaurants in the area offering great food and experiences and a sometimes welcome break from all the fashionable joints in the rest of the city bowl. Retiring to one of the many luxurious hotels in Cape Town after a day of exploring the city makes your stay that much more memorable.

If you are staying in the mother city, checking out the Cape Town CBD is an absolute must.

Cape Town CBD
I am a middle aged South African Woman and was spending the weekend alone in Cape Town and due to the fact that I had no transport, I opted to stay in the city - close to all the attractions. I loved the atmosphere in the Bo-Kaap area and really enjoyed experiencing the architecture and culture of this part of Cape Town. Being a South African that was brought up during the Apartheid era I had to overcome my old-school attitude to living in a mixed race area but this was very easy to do. I walked around alone at night and never once did I feel threatened or unsafe. The locals are such fun and the history and vibe in this area is something every South African should experience for themselves. It's not the same just wandering in for a few minutes to take photo's and leave. You have to stay there and experience the sounds and the atmosphere to really enjoy it. I can recommend it to all tourists - international and local.

Cape Town CBD
As a child we use to visit Cape Town very often. This visit reminded me again of those years. Everything seems to be within reach, shopping hours very comfortable for late workers and holidaymakers. I felt like a tourist who was visiting for the first time, everything seems different on foot rather than just driving by. Signboards are clearly marked, all info needed was available all over the city and people are helpful. This is what I call a friendly city. :)

Cape Town is simply beautiful! I hear people call it little Italy, I rate it doesn't compare because it is so uniquely Cape Town, a place for fun and excitement yet uber relaxed with so many friendly people.
