Guesthouse and 5 luxury self-catering apartments in the City Bowl
Budget Getaways Review
We haven't managed to track down any independent guest reviews for this new establishment located just off Cape Town's happening Kloof Street; however, looking at the package of accommodation and the facilities on offer it seems like a very good-value option with an accompanying package of convenient bells and whistles.
5 Camp Street features both a guesthouse (which can be taken as a self-catering whole) and five luxurious self-catering apartments, which come in one- and two-bedroom options, all of them ensuite and with space for a child in the lounge.
The units are described as "tastefully furnished" in a nice mix of the antique and modern - judging by the pics the decor is attractive and the furnishings high quality.
Fully equipped kitchens, flatscreen TV's with DSTV, private barbie areas and all linen and towels are standard issue, as is a communal pool, DSTV, free Wi-Fi internet access, and secure parking for the hired car from Avis.
Prices start at R350pp for the self-catering units, and a little higher for a comfy bed in the guesthouse - quite reasonable for a spot in the heart of the city. With a total headcount of 20, booking the entire place for a family occasion or birthday bash in the Mother of all cities is not out of the question.
5 Camp Street's convenient location will be a big drawcard if you like being close to the action. The city centre and Long Street is a mere five minutes away (downhill all the way); a platter of 20+ restaurants and pubs is just a short stroll away and takes care of the evening meal, the cable car; Table Mountain and Lion's Head provide a constant protective backdrop, while Camps Bay and Clifton Beach are just over the hill.
We like the look of this, and can't wait to hear your feedback.
