Hotel / Area opinion

by Vichel

Hi, I'm thinking of booking a room at the Holiday Inn Express which is on 101 St. Georges Mall in Cape Town - does anyone know what the area around there is like? We're looking for something central so that we can just walk out of the hotel and have a lot of shops, restaurants and sites nearby. Is this hotel a good choice for that sort of thing? Is it a relatively safe area - no worse than ordinary?

Thank you.

Greetings from Cape Town.

The H/I Express was a office building converted to Hotel about 12 months ago. Still new and is located in the heart of the business district. If that is where you want to be, it is a good choice. The same area is also a craft market over weekends. There are many shops in close walking distance (9 to 5 only) and the club/pub life popular with those younger than me is about 10 minutes walking time away. Yes, by day a safe area, after dark maybe a questionmark.

If your visit is for pleasure rather than business, and you want to be closer to the touristy areas, where shops stay open longer and with more restaurants, then this is not where you want to be. Your choice then will be a hotel closer to the V&A Waterfront.

Prices in the Waterfront range from similar to the HI Express to more than 20x that price. I will send you a link to a list that I am compiling at present on hotels and their prices. Give me a day to complete the list please.

This is an ideal location for accommodation. Many attractions accessable from city city centre. and yes- its safe. Observe usual precautions,as you would in any strange city.Do not display expensive jewellery, and avoid dark lonely areas at night. If you wish to move around at night, use a registered taxi. If walking, stay aware of surroundings.
The Greenmarket Square markets are nearby, and open most days. Have a look at my Cape Town page for more information. Link is on my homepage.

Thanks lynne and faurec for your replies. Look forward to your suggestions faurec, thanks for taking the time to do so. I suppose the whole thing about safety in South Africa makes the choosing of accommodation a bit more complex than usual. Perhaps I worry too much?

that hotel and position are good during "business hours" however that area is rather quiet at night I recommend staying in "the waterfront "- quite a few hotels - that way you can walk out the hotel at night and have plenty of action around.

Travel Tips for Cape Town

South Africa and the vineyards

by Luchonda

The VineYards
Description: On a day trip towards "The Vine Yards" and "The Capes" we saw the "slums" of Cape Town. But they seemed to be well organized and rather clean - grace to the government and their subsidary plans (water and electricity are for free till a fixed maximum).
About 60 km from CT you will recognize the famous vineyards like "Stellenbosch" and "French Hoek" - please taste the golden nectar and maybe you can be witness of local marriage tradition too. Anyhow - be prepared and read the history of the "Hugenotes" - explorers who made SA a great country. Read about the basics - read about Vasco Da Gama and the "Hottentotts". This reading will give you a clear view on South Africa and its young but interesting history."Remember the words of Bishop Totoe: Our Nation is a multi coloured Nation"

The Cape Panoramics are a must - meet the confrontation of the two Oceans - visit in the meanwhile great places like "Simons Town"-"Muizenberg"-"Mosselbay" and the unique "Botanical Garden".

Muslim Malay People in the Cape

by Jenniflower

The Malay quarter, on the slopes of Signal Hill, in an old residential area of Cape Town, abounds with the typical, 18th century, flat-roofed Malay houses, many of them recently renovated. This area is famously called 'Bo-Kaap'... which in Afrikaans means 'Above the Cape'.

The Muslim Malay community is deeply religious and they keep to themselves as much as possible, not wanting 'bad' outside influences to come into their community. This unfirtunately does mean an imposed type of segragation from the local communities.

Genadendal

by mvtouring

This lovely old village is the oldest Mission Station in South Africa, with its setting at the foot of the Riviersonderend Mountains it is about 30km from Caledon. All the buildings on Church square was declared National Monuments in 1980. This church square is regarded as the most authentic on in SA.
Take the N2 from Cape Town and just follow the sign posts from there

Trendy and sophisticated

by Jenniflower about Café Caprice

One of the most popular establishments along the famous Camps Bay beachfront, Cafe Caprice attracts a trendy young crowd of sophisticated young professionals, glamorous models, and its fair share of celebrities (ie: NOT us! haha).

Due to its ideal location with wonderful views of the beachfront, it is also popular for film shoots. Thye are often seen here :) Dress up and have fun!

Seafood to die for!

by Paula&Matt about Cape Town Fish Market and Sushi Bar

I had the best service I have ever experienced in this restaurant, the food was fresh, varied and they even had a market area where you could go and pick what you wanted and they cooked it for you! There was also a sushi bar, and i really wished i liked it because it looked amazing, but i dont, so i just amazed at how great it looked! The seafood platter for two was 270 rand (about £24) and contained a lobster, loads of prawns in lemon butter, mussells, three fillets of linefish, calamari (non chewy!) and other bits and peices, it was yummy!!
