Accommodation near The Company Gardens

The Company's Garden is situated in Queen Victoria Street, in Cape Town City Centre.

The Garden takes its name from the Dutch East India Company who first started the garden in 1652 for private use but was made open for public use in 1848. It is now visited by tourists for its amazing views, flowers, water feature and historic setting.

Best area in Cape Town in terms of convenience.
- David Lynn

Gardens
Gardens is an awesome area with so much life and interesting things to do and see. However, traffic can be a nightmare with the narrow roads and erratic drivers.
- Alice Chan

Gardens
For a pleasant, comfortable and convenient stay in Cape Town you could not do better. We stepped out the door and across the street to the cool, quiet gardens which we could walk through to most of the central attractions in 10 or 15 minutes.
- Janet Leeming

Gardens
One of the best areas in the Central CBD with a number of great, cozy restaurants, coffee shops and the like. Great to explore on foot, lazing in the Company Gardens, going for high tea at the Mount Nelson Hotel, the options are endless and best of all, it's central to almost everything.

Definitely a "must explore" when in Cape Town.
