Once in Cape Town

once in Cape Town

There is one very long street in Cape Town, which is the absolute place to be. Think about organic cafés, cool hangouts, bars, vintage and local brands. Chicks that seem to have just been pulled out of Gigi Hadid's squad. South Africa being not the safest place to walk around, it pays off to stay in a central area, so you don't need to drive at dinner time - driving at night in South Africa is sometimes scary because when you start feeling safe, a sketchy man pops out of nowhere and starts walking down the road, so you start skipping the traffic lights (called robots in SA) regardless of color.

We stayed at Once in Cape Town, which is a lovely hotel in Kloof street - the continuation of Long street aka the place to be - featuring a rootftop bar, kitchen, own parking, restaurant and 2 kinds of rooms, shared for backpackers and private for grown ups with a wild heart like us. They also arrange many activities with pickup from the hotel, something which is extremely convenient for those who are not driving - we had a rental car and made our own plans. Even if we picked a 3-day weekend in SA to visit Cape Town, we paid 70EUR per night with breakfast included, which felt like an extremely good deal, given the excellent location, parking availability and atmosphere in the hotel - nicely decorated and newly refurbished.

Absolutely recommended as your base in Cape Town - 73 KLOOF ST.
