Capetown Day 2 & 3

A travel blog entry by jimhilbert on May 31, 2014

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 on Jan 22, 2014

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 …

... through Manenberg to get to the Manenberg People's Center where we meet every morning, we could tell something was off. Usually the streets are busy. People are always standing outside, walking around, chatting with neighbors, playing, etc. This morning, it was eerily quiet. There were very few people out. When we got to the People's Center, the home health workers explained that since this was ...

... driving 5 hours in 140 km/h with the windows down - it was like being in a storm. We tried to listen to music so our headsets could take some of the extreme blowing away. It didn't really work. Fortunately we stopped on the way to look at an old and famous tree that is 1000 years old (very nice tree), the world's highest bungy jump, a luxury garden hotel in the middle of the forest/bush and we had lunch down at a beach hotel in ...

... to the boardwalk (or walk under them), show no real fear of humans (probably because some people feed them), but the signs say that they bite so we didn't offer them anything (and wouldn't have). Other than they do smell, they were fun to watch for awhile especially since we were the first ones at the beach today.

Then it was off to the wine lands. Oops, wrong. Rox asked Roelf where to buy souvenirs (in the form of wood carvings of African animals). So ...

    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 ¡me hizo feliz! Fue un placer haber estado ahí... y había tantos detalles en la decoración... ¡Todos 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.

    Alles nur Kleinigkeiten, die sich leicht lösen ließen.

    Die Angestellten sind freundlich und geben gute Empfehlungen ab. Das Frühstück ist sehr gut, umfangreiche Auswahl, ob kontinental oder englisch, es ist für jeden etwas dabei.

    Lassen Sie sich nicht davon täuschen, wie schön der Pool aussieht - er ist sogar für Zwerge zu klein.

    Sie sollten sich mal die Toiletten und den Raucherbereich im Hotel Concourse ansehen - wirklich außergewöhnlich, passt aber genau zum Stil des Hotels.

    Wenn ich das nächste Mal in Kapstadt bin, werde ich wieder in diesem Hotel übernachten.

    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.

    These are all little problems that were easily remedied.

    The staff are friendly and have good advice. The breakfast in the morning is very good, plenty of choice be it a continental style or english they cater for all.

    Do not be taken in by how lovely the pool looks, the pool is so small that not even pigmies would go into it.

    Check out the toilets in the hotel concourse and the smoking room, they are so unique and are definately in tune with the hotel.

    When I go back to Cape Town I will use this hotel again.

    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!

    Die Angestellten sind fantastisch und tun so ziemlich alles, um das coole und effiziente Ambiente aufrechtzuhalten. Die Zimmer sind in klarem Design und mit dem allermodernsten Komfort ausgestattet: Flachbildschirm-TV, Bose-Soundsystem und kostenloser Wireless-Internetanschluss. Insgesamt eine unglaubliche Erfahrung und für die Extremisten dieser Welt ein unbedingtes Muss!!!
