Cape Town is a city filled with super rich and super poor South Africans. There is no in between. It is quite sad as you pass the airport and see a township of rows of shacks were the "Bantus" (Blacks) live. About a 10 mins ride further east, you see another shack like township except a bit better and that is where the "colours" live. On the …
My parents arrived on New Years Eve! It was GREAT to see them! I had moved over to the hotel we were staying in a few hours before they arrived (slightly nicer than anywhere I have stayed on my journey up till now!)so I was there waiting in the lobby when they arrived. After spending a few hours in the room catching up and exchanging presents we …
Going into Capetown we didn't get in until late evening. We had trouble getting to our hotel but enjoyed the drive on the waterfront with all of its corporate offices, lofts, and the V&A Waterfront. The next day we decided to take a drive down to the Peninsula Cape. We had a chance to go through the cities lining the coastline down to the …
... off, a weekend lie in after a week of commuting too much to resist. So instead, we register to do the Green Point run, the route passing past the stadium and directly in front of our apartment so hard to refuse as it is so close.

TravelPod Member ReviewsTownhouse Hotel Cape Town
Excellent Staff, Food,Service and Location. The rooms could have been better maintained (shower needed draining, light bulb needed replacing, and tv didn't work). All this got sorted out in minutes and the room became excellent. It just would have been nice to have it done before I got there.
