    Profile: Cape Town City Centre

    Cape Town City Centre is where you can immerse yourself in the city’s buzz. Among the city's prim colonial facades, you can enjoy first-rate multicultural cuisine, splash the cash in a glossy mall, rummage for bargains at the Greenmarket Square flea market, or take in the vibrant colors of Adderley Street’s sweet-smelling flower stalls.

    If you’re a bit of a culture junkie, Cape Town City Centre has no shortage of theaters, museums, and galleries. The Iziko South African Museum and the Iziko South African National Gallery are home to some of South Africa’s most gawp-worthy treasures.

      Perfect accommodation for the CTCT.

      Great location for my stay when doing the CTCT. Close to registration as well as both the start and finish it makes for a fine location for the race. Room has plenty of space and is well equipped. Also very close to the V&A so plenty of places to eat and activities to do.

      Good stay at Charles guest house

      Location was perfect for the business I attended. Very central to the waterfront and convention centre.

      Nice hotel, probably not the best room

      Location was good and the room was furnished nicely, unfortunately it opened up to the internal courtyard where they ran the loud coffee machine early in the morning. The room was quite warm even though it was not a hot night, and compounded by the thick winter duvet in the middle of summer.
