Facebook Feedback Fridays: Your recommended Cape Town accommodation hotspots
Born and bred in the Mother city, Leilah lives an average-Jane life in the quiet side of Cape Town suburbia. Her favourite things to do in Cape Town include getting sand in her Havaianas on the beach, and watching the bright city lights on Long Street at night.
Leilah heads up the Content Marketing team at iProspect, so naturally is addicted to all things digital. She is an avid Instagramer who "belongs" to the Igers Cape Town community, and collects memories of her city adventures (instameets) for her Instagram feed, as well as the feed of Cape Town Tourism.
"Instagram makes me see the world through different eyes," she says, yet insists she is not a hipster.
As we enter the holiday season, we welcome new and returning visitors to our beautiful city. And who knows the city better than you guys, right? So we thought it would only be fitting if we gather some loyal fans' insights on the best accommodation hotspots in Cape Town. Here’s what you guys recommended for guests spending their holidays in the Mother City.
Your choices for accommodation in Cape Town are limitless; but here are some of our faves:
Dominique Steffenhagen recommends Olaf´s Guesthouse in Sea Point. What do we know about Olaf’s Guesthouse? It is cosy and quaint with a total of nine individually decorated en-suite rooms. It is within close proximity to the beaches of Clifton as well as the trendy Long Street.
Carlos Higa says Ashanti Lodge at Green Point is tops and where he stayed for four months in Cape Town. This backpackers has been around for over 20 years and is located within walking distance of the beaches along the Atlantic Seaboard as well as the V & A Waterfront. They offer great budget accommodation in all three of their secure properties. They also offer free wi-fi – score!
Sarah Beth is a huge fan of Ocean View House. She says, “Their commitment to style, responsible tourism and service outstrip their four stars!”
We couldn’t agree more. This boutique hotel gets its name from its idyllic setting, facing the calm Camps Bay shoreline. If you’re looking for luxury accommodation with gorgeous views, then look no further.
Cameron Wake recommends The District Six Guesthouse. “It's the CBD's hidden gem! Run by a fantastic lady called Faizah Hendricks at only R600 p/n for a double room make it value for money. When I stayed there a few years back we had afternoon tea with the Reverend Desmond Tutu who was visiting his daughter who was staying at the guesthouse. An inspirational experience I will never forget. Check it out!” says Cameron.
Tersia Coetzee recommends The Vinelands on Alpha. Situated in the quiet side of Cape Town, Brackenfell suburbs, you’ll find this cosy old Cape Dutch style guesthouse. The Vinelands is set in a remote countryside atmosphere, away from the hustle and bustle of the city – providing optimum relaxation after a long day exploring under the Cape Town sun.
