Where to stay in Cape Town

When it comes to accommodation in Cape Town, the possibilities are endless. Each diverse neighbourhood boasts unique sights and attractions. Whether it be the exploring the colourful neighbourhood of Bo-Kaap, topping up your tan on the glorious beaches along the Atlantic Seaboard, or witnessing a piece of history on Robben Island. Helpfully, the city is divided into two main sections separated by Table Mountain in the centre: City Bowl, and the Atlantic Seaboard.

City bowl features Woodstock, Vredehoek, Oranjezicht, Tamboerskloof, Gardens, the CBD, Bo-Kaap, the V&A Waterfront and De Waterkant.

The Atlantic Seaboard is comprised of Mouille Point, Green Point, Sea Point / Three Anchor Bay, Fresnaye, Bantry Bay, Clifton, Camps Bay, Bakoven, and Llandudno.

Where to stay in Cape Town

City Bowl Neighbourhoods

The city Bowl features the North side of Table Mountain, stretching inland towards the East.

City Bowl / CBD - Clubs, Bars & Restaurants at your fingertips

Why stay in City Bowl / CBD

The CBD is at the heart of it all. Staying here will have you close to clubs, bars, and delectable restaurants on every corner. The accommodation on offer is supremely varied, from low budget hostels and cosy guesthouses to boutique stays and luxury hotels. There's something to suit everyone and you'll be right at the centre of public transport with easy access to the whole city. Bee Street is a must-visit destination for foodies, and open galleries and street food fairs burst into action on the first Thursday of every month.

Why avoid City Bowl / CBD

As in most city centres, it can get seriously busy and accommodation in the very centre is sparse.

Woodstock - Best for creatives

Why stay in Woodstock

Woodstock is a bursting hub of creatives, dreamers, and passion chasers the likes you'd find in Brooklyn, New York. Still considered an up and coming area, it's affordable, cheap to get around and only 10 minutes from the City Bowl. Woodstock is an interesting area to take refuge if you're a fan of festivals, farm stalls, and internationally recognised street art. Many young business entrepreneurs and startups have adopted the area as a base and so an eclectic mix of people have begun to bloom in the area.

Why avoid Woodstock

Gritty, artsy, and full of passion. Woodstock is a dreamers paradise, but as it's still a little rough around the edges in certain areas there are safer places to choose.
