Safest place to stay

by JaredRSydney

I'm looking for reasonably priced accommodation in the Cape Town region that is still (if possible) central to the area.

Is Durbanville a long way away?

In saying such, what is the Cape Town equivilent of Sandton in Jozy?

Thanks!

If you hire a car from Durbanville could take you about 40 min to CApe Town, but I am sure you could find accomodation closer to Cape Town or in Cape Town, for reasonably cheap as prices are now quite lower, even good hotels have good specials Look up Protea hotels like the fire and Ice. Also look up Guest houses at savenues.co.za or safari.com. The Waterfront area is probably the equivalent. Have a wonderful time.

There are quite a number of reasonably priced places to stay in the Greenpoint area which is next to the Waterfront area. You will find from B&B to cheap/budget hotels there. Durbanville is a bit far away from the husstle and busstle of city life, more rural.

Thanks for your advice. I think I've found a nice apartment in Camps Bay.

Travel Tips for Cape Town

Go visiting Kirstenbosch...

by LilleLene

Go visiting Kirstenbosch national botanical garden. Its extremely beautiful.
And during the summer there is live music every Sunday. Its the small things i miss about Cape Town. I miss feeding the squirrels in Gouverment avenue, and I miss talking to the kind and friendly south african people.

visit Kirstenbosch Garden

by hanspeter_W.

Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is world-renowned for the beauty and diversity of the Cape flora it displays and for the magnificence of its setting against the eastern slopes of Table Mountain.

Kirstenbosch grows only indigenous South African plants. The estate covers 528 hectares and supports a diverse fynbos flora and natural forest. The cultivated garden (36 hectares) displays collections of South African plants, particularly those from the winter rainfall region of the country. It was founded in 1913, read about the History of the Garden.

Cigar Bar

by jo104 about Kennedy's Restaurant & Cigar Bar

I have not been here but have been told it is the place to go so will add the tip on merit.

The range of cigars is very good as one would expect.

The decor is lavish with the traditional furnishings of a cigar bar. It also provides live jazz.. Although I have not eaten there it is run by a Michelin star chef. More expensive then average

Avoid this restaurant

by cochinjew about Bokhara North Indian Restaurant

The usual menu you would find at an indian restaurant in london and at the same price as in london.. who said cape town was cheap!
The service was so slow, I walked out of the restaurant which i very seldom do. I do not recommend this place. First of all almost all the people eating there were white south africans or tourists, no east indians.. what does that say.. catering for someone else..
Indian grandfathers who should be with their grandchildren at home, offer indifferent service.
a white guy behind the cashiers counter.. in an east indian restaurant? bad symbolism.. If i had elected to stay and eat i would have chosen
baigaan bhartha.. thick curry of tandorri roasted egg plant at 50 rands.. the bill would have come to close to 100 rands including service and rice etc.. too expensive in a town where such money would buy you exquisite meals..
