Where to stay in Cape Town City Centre, Cape Town

About Cape Town City Centre

Cape Town City Centre epitomises the kaleidoscopic appeal of South Africa, offering dozens of unique experiences in Africa’s southwestern corner. With Table Mountain as the irrepressible backdrop and Atlantic Ocean waters surrounding the city, Cape Town celebrates the natural splendour of a continent. Packed onto the narrow streets are bustling bars, vibrant markets, many iconic attractions, and dozens of restaurants that bring cuisine from across the continent.

Cape Town City Centre is surprisingly compact, hemmed in by the majesty of nature. The Central Business District stands close to the ocean, home to many of country’s banks and major media institutions. A number of parallel streets run from here towards Table Mountain. Long Street is the centre of everything and a great place to party and dine with excellent markets, while Bree Street is home to boutique shops and some of Cape Town’s finest restaurants. Adderley Street passes the Parliament Building, Cape Town Train Station and the Company’s Garden. Between these streets, there are many indoor markets and bars.

The former slave quarter of Bo-Kaap covers the hill to the west of the city centre, every one of its houses painted a different pastel colour. This area merges into Tamboerskloof, an affluent neighbourhood that enjoys commanding views of the city and Table Mountain. In the lower slopes of Table Mountain is Gardens, a leafy suburb that turns lively when the sun goes down. Attractions like the Castle of Good Hope can be found to the east of Cape Town City Centre, while the V&A Waterfront is within walking distance from Long Street.

Cape Town City Centre can be explored on foot, and the attractions are well signposted. A dedicated walking route runs from the train station to the Waterfront while various central streets have been pedestrianised. Private taxis are available and visible on almost all the streets.

Two excellent museums provide a narrative on Cape Town City Centre’s controversial history. Situated in a mid 18th century slave house, Bo-Kaap Museum discusses the abolition of slavery and showcases the city’s Islamic side. District Six Museum uses photos and videos to show the forced removal of black inner-city residents during apartheid.
