    Great location


    I negotiated a deal with this hotel where I stayed in a massive room which I was told by the concierge was a dead cert if you managed to blag a corner room. It was a big L Shape room on the 9th floor for only 600 Rand a night (£60). That didn't include breakfast but the staple diet here seemed to be curry and meat for breakfast which wasn't really an option.

    When I was there, I shared the hotel with a large number of Barmy Army supporters but they all moved onto the next Test or went home leaving me on my own for a few days. This was fine although when I tried to eat in the Hotel restaraunt I found the place wasn't licenced. The only place you could get a beer was on the 2nd floor with a buffet type dinner which to be brutally honest was pretty poor compared to some of the meals I'd indulged in down at the waterfront.

    Apart from that, from the cleaners, to reception through to the Concierge everyone was really helpfull and sorted me out with all my trips and excursions, surprisingly enought without any cut or commision, just a little tip for their efforts and they seemed more than happy to help.

    Location wise it was spot on, about 10 minutes walk to the V&A with security and cctv all the way so walking wasn't an issue.

    Unique Quality: I had views of the bay from my 9th floor room but as far as facilities go, it was a bit limited - there was a gym in the building with a couple of bits of equipment but since the hotel had been taken over by a major malaysian hotel chain, they've cut down on a few things - there was a pool and a fitness centre across the forecourt which used to be free for guests but the new owners had dispensed with that.

    Directions: 10 minutes from V&A

Driving around is EASY

by AlekToronto

It is easy as long as you are ok driving on the LEFT hand side of the road with a stick shift.
Car Rental rates are rasonable (more $$ than US but less than Europe)
All the majors can be found in Cape Town so shop around.

Traffic is calm for a large city and other than not signalling turns Capetonian drivers are not all that bad.
Signage is great and it is pretty hard to get lost.

Please plan your visit between...

by madeletha

Please plan your visit between October - January, then you'll get the best weather and CAPE TOWN IS A MUST. The wine route (Stellenbosch etc), garden route (Cape Town, Knysna, George etc) are a must see. Shopping at the VA Waterfront, Cape Town and Cavendish Square, Claremont are the best. Hey, I'm a Capetonian!! My best memories of S.A. is the Xmas season, which consist of a succession of parties at the beach, braai's (barbacue) with friends and family and beautiful sunny skies. Oh, how I miss the sight of Table Mountain morning, noon and night, as well as being able to smell the sea breeze from miles away...

Soweto / Rainbow Cuisine

by kenHuocj about Marco's African Place.

" "The first black chef to own a mainstream restaurant in Cape Town, Marco Radebe is a big, warm-hearted man who will make you feel right at home in his ethnic eatery where you're likely to spot well-known media personalities and local politicians. '" "

I was introduced by article in SA WineNews, but i wonder if Marco worked with shorty Goh at #5 Commissioner then Golden City ?

Any Capetonian want to find out for me ? " " His Greek-style lamb, tripe, crocodile and ostrich are legendary.
'There's a universality about food,' says Marco. 'Whether I'm cooking traditional samp and tripe, Mediterranean or Chinese food, I find similarities in the way different cultures do things.'
" "

I will when there, call for a Mgudu as a starter;
then the Ostrich-fusion chinese/greek method; and special of the day ;-p

Capetonian or Constantina woods

by galy

Anyone has any experience with this 2 hotels?
The first one is more central, is that important if we have a cer? is there a parking problem at the area?
Which one you think is nicer? better?
Decitions decotions...LOL
Tnx for your help

Easy question, easy answer:

If you have a car = Constantia Woods
If you have no car = CapeTonian

As far as I remember, the Capetonian does not have an in-house car park, and it is not good to walk in the "Foreshore" area at night.

I am sure that the Constantia Woods will give you secure parking directly on their property. The driving time from Constantia Woods to the central city is 15 - 20 minutes. The driving time from Constantia Woods to Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Penguins, Constantia Wine Areas, Hout Bay, Chapmans Peak, is 15-20 mins less than from the central City. Kistenbosch is only 5 minutes away.
