This place on the map - and no prior knowledge of Cape Town - looks slightly out of the way. It's not. It's actually in a very good area for visitors, with a little clutch of restaurants, bars, shops, and a launderette just around the corner, and a very trendy street full of great bars, shops, food options on the main road (Kloof St?) 2 mins away. Easy to get into town or towards Table Mountain (or Camps Bay) via taxi or bus,or just by walking. We didn't stay here at first for the location reason, but it was a much much better area than the place where we did stay. Don't be confused by location away from Sea or Long St (a dump). This is best area I saw in over a week in the city.
As for the hotel itself, it's a decent value, comfortable, easygoing place. The guys at reception are friendly and helpful without being too full on.
Highly recommended all round.
