Capetown Day 2 & 3

A travel blog entry by jimhilbert


We flew in to Cape Town from Jo'burg. The flight was uneventful and at 2 hours was the equivalent of flying Melbourne to Brisbane I suppose. The weather here is not as nice as Jo'berg but we are not here for the weather I suppose. The hotel we are in "Protea Fire and Ice" is about 3 star. And the rooms are desperately in need of a make over. …

One more item off my bucket list

A travel blog entry by michaeldc

My favourite place to visit in South Africa is Cape Town, in fact I like it so much I plan to live in the area outside of the city later this year. On my previous visits to the city I have been unable to visit Table Mountain due to (1) shut down for maintenance and (2) high winds preventing the cable car from operating.
Today was a perfect day …


A travel blog entry by alexanderdrury


The last two days in Cape Town were supposed to be uneventful; we planned to undertake what the guidebook portrayed as a relatively easy 45 minute ascent to the summit of Lion's Head on Tuesday, before killing time prior to our flight on Wednesday night. In the event the former took four and a half hours – Cape Town doesn’t do signs too …

A travel blog entry by cdhutchings


Hey Everyone,

Amazing time so far - packing all the sights and sounds of Cape Town in.

Robben Island was really interesting. One of the last to join the bus tour (does that suprise you?!) but this turned out to be an advantage. Had a much more personal tour and the guide allowed us to wander at the top of the quarry where Mandela …

Arrived in South Africa after 32 hours!

We arrived in Johannesburg after stops in Washington D.C. and Dakar, Senegal finally. Pretty much crashed when we got here - it was 8 pm local when we finally got to our hotel. 25 in our group, several from Calif, rest from all over US. Several grandmas taking their college age grandsons along. Had a welcome dinner tonight in our hotel - kingclip …

    We have arrived to renovations and refurbishment. The Internet is shoddy and I feel the rooms are small and in need of a make over. Breakfast was good and the service is friendly. All in all I rate this hotel as 2 star.

    It Was Super!!!!!


    This hotel was just great, everything about it was wonderful, fun and made me happy! it was a pleasure to stay there, and so much detail went into the decor, everyday we noticed something different and quirky! a true gem, please go and stay there - I really recommend it........ I would go back.... fast

    Es war super!!!


    Dieses Hotel war einfach super, alles war einfach wunderbar, schön und ich war sehr zufrieden. Der Aufenthalt war die reinste Freude und man hat sich beim Dekor die größte Mühe gegeben. Jeden Tag fiel uns etwas Neues ins Auge. Ein wahres Juwel, sehen Sie es sich an, ich kann es nur empfehlen, würde hier gerne wieder hinkommen.

    !Fue genial!!!!


    Este hotel fue simplemente estupendo. Era divertido, maravilloso en todo, y ˇme hizo feliz! Fue un placer haber estado ahí... y había tantos detalles en la decoración... ˇTodos los días notábamos alguna cosa diferente y estrafalaria! Una verdadera joya. Por favor id y hospedaos ahí - Realmente lo recomiendo... Yo volvería... rápidamente.

    Was für ein sonderbares Hotel!


    Nach einem um 25 Stunden verspäteten Flug kamen wir endlich im Hotel an. Muss sagen, dass man uns sehr herzlich in Empfang nahm. Die Zimmer können etwas klein ausfallen, aber sind mit allem ausgestattet, was man braucht. Das Wasser in der Dusche blieb nie auf derselben Temperatur, der Fernseher ging nur manchmal, in der Toilette lief Wasser und die Schlüsselkarte fürs Zimmer war andauernd verbogen.

    What a quirky hotel this is


    After a delayed flight of 25 hours we finally arrived at the hotel. May I say we were made to feel very welcome upon our arrival. The rooms can be quite small but you have everything you need there. The shower never stayed at the same temperature, the tv was only on sometimes, there was a leak in the toilet room and the key card to the room kept going wonky.

    Wärmstens zu empfehlen


    Ohne Frage in dieser Preiskategorie das beste Hotel in Kapstadt. Für diejenigen, die sich mit Hotels in UK auskennen - es ist ein bisschen wie ein preiswertes Malmaison, wobei der einzige fühlbare Qualitätsunterschied ist, dass die Zimmer ziemlich klein sind. Tagsüber ist man nur 5 Gehminuten von Long Street entfernt, aber um zur Waterfront zu kommen, braucht man ein Taxi (abends wird Touristen abgeraten, in Kapstadt herumzulaufen). Das Hotelmotto "Extreme Sportarten" wirkte nicht aufdringlich, und die meisten Gäste sahen nicht gerade wie begeisterte Anhänger extremer Sportarten aus! Was die Innenausstattung anbelangt, ist die Liebe zum Detail wirklich gut (sehen Sie sich unbedingt mal die Toiletten der Bar und das Raucherzimmer an). Personal war ausgezeichnet - sehr hilfsbereit und sehr kompetent. Beim Buchen hatte ich das Gefühl, dass das Hotelangebot in Kapstadt insgesamt ziemlich begrenzt ist, weshalb ich mir unserer Wahl sehr zufrieden war.

    Highly recommended


    Without question the best hotel in Cape Town in its price bracket. For those who know UK hotels, it's kind of like a budget Malmaison with the only real noticeable quality difference being that the rooms are quite small. During the day, you're only 5 minutes walk away from Long St but do need to get taxi's to the Waterfront (at night, tourists aren't really advised to walk around Cape Town anyway). The extreme sports theme isn't intrusive and the large majority of guests didn't seem like extreme sports enthusiasts to me! Attention to detail on the interior design is really good (be sure to check out the bar toilets and smoking room). Staff were excellent - very helpful and very capable. When booking, I felt that the overall selection of hotels in CT was pretty restrictive and was delighted with our choice.

    An extreme experience second to none...!!!


    This Hotel is well located in the HIP and happening part of Cape Town. At the foot of Table Mountain and within walking distance to great night life in the area. The decor of the Hotel is a totally new concept and definitely lives up to its "Extreme" name! They have more than 30 types of burgers on their menu and serve just under 40 styles of milkshakes and if that does not appeal to you then sample their other menu items which are out of this world!

    The STAFF are fantastic and will do just about anything to keep the mood funky and efficient. The rooms feature clean designs and state of the art facilities: Flat screen TV, Bose sound system and Free wireless internet. All in all an unbelievable experience and for those Extremests out there an absolute must!!!

    Eine extreme Erfahrung ohnegleichen.... !!!


    Die Lage des Hotels im trendigen Teil von Kapstadt, wo all die Action abläuft, ist klasse. Am Fuß vom Table Mountain gelegen lässt sich das tolle Nachtleben dieser Gegend zu Fuß erreichen. Das Dekor des Hotels ist ein total neues Konzept und macht dem Namen "Extreme" alle Ehre! Auf der Speisekarte stehen mehr als 30 Burgerarten, und es gibt knapp 40 verschiedene Arten von Milkshakes. Falls das nicht so Ihr Fall ist, probieren Sie doch einfach die anderen Speisen auf der Karte, die einfach einzigartig sind!
